X3 Gets Sexified, Avi Arad Gets Pissed

Hey guys, it's Donnie...Word has it that Ratner has started looking for a pretty young thing to play Stacy X, a mutant prostitute of sorts whose mutation is a pheremone which makes her irresistable to any man. Before the fanboys get all up in arms, Matthew Vaughn was planning on using this character as well, and I think he was merely waiting on approval from Fox.

In related news IESB has posted a 45 minute video interview with Marvel guru Avi Arad in which he basically talks about anything and everything on the Marvel slate. Fantastic Four, X3, Silver Surfer, Spidey 3, Sub-Mariner, Luke Cage, a Blade TV show, everything. He claims that the AICN script that was reviewed was an old draft and that changes have since been made, although from other things discussed in reference to X-Men in general, I feel like all the major points that most people had gripes with are probably still intact, particularly character deaths. Arad seems to be of the opinion that there's nothing wrong with killing off major characters as long as the death in and of itself isn't done carelessly because "all the characters died and came back throughout the comics." Personally I'm not sure if that's really the best philosophy to adopt, but we'll see how it turns out. Arad also claims that we'll hear casting news on Kitty Pryde soon and Angel within the next 10 days or so. Then again we've heard that before. I feel like maybe they're saving up tfor a big announcement at ComicCon in a few weeks.

The interview is in 6 parts and in Windows Media format. Check it out right here.

The man certainly has faith in his properties and makes no bones about dissing DC, that's for damn sure...
