In a recent chat with MTV, X-Men: Apocalypse actress Rose Byrne was asked about the '80's fashion of the film, saying “I like the ‘80s. There’s the high pant. I’ve got a bit of a great high pant thing happening. I like a strong shoulder.  I’m not a fan of the weird negligee under the blouse look.” Check out the video right here:

Byrne is set to reprise her role as Moira MacTaggart in X-Men: Apocalypse, which is due out May 27, 2016.

JAMES GUNN Says KANG And SHI'AR Film Rights Controlled By Fox

In a Facebook comment, responding to a fan's question about possible characters for Guardians of the Galaxy 2, director James Gunn has claimed that the film rights for the Shi'Ar and Kang are both controlled by 20th Century Fox, saying "Shi'ar and Kang are both owned by Fox. All decisions about who is in GotG2 were made a long time ago."

Fox controlling the Shi'Ar comes as no surprise, given the alien race's deep ties to the X-Men franchise. But Kang being controlled by Fox is a bit more surprising, given that he has traditionally been an Avengers villain. However, the key may lie in his origins, as the character first appeared as Rama-Tut in Fantastic Four a full year before appearing in Avengers as Kang. Additionally, the character's alter ego, Nathaniel Richards, is a descendent of Reed Richards of the FF.
