When the bubonic plague hit in 1348 it was pretty bad time to be a Catholic. Monks and Nuns were infected just as much as the beggars and peasants, and the one man everyone looked to for guidance, the Pope, packed his bags and ran away to Babylon. Back then, most people believed that the Black Death was in fact one of God’s biblical plagues, and that God was very very pissed off. Acting out of desperation, men committed unspeakable acts in the name of God in order to shield themselves from his wrath. This is a story of those men.

In a mad dash to beat other more powerful
mutant media outlets to the punch, I didn’t get a chance to write my opinion until after this post went live. All I can say is WOW. I’m totally blown away by the style and atmosphere of this trailer. The fact that the trailer used footage from Brian Singer’s X-men, and didn’t completely throw out the previously established mythology has me elated. Were the X-men films perfect? Hell no, but what you can’t argue with is that prior to Singer’s X-men the “super hero” film genre was not taken seriously. I’m happy to see the use of traditional X-men colors, and love the fact that the X-men were somehow part of the Cuban Missile crisis. I cannot wait to see more!
