X-MEN 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just to let you know that it is official as of today.....Cam booked the role of Leech in the next X-men movie. The script is hush hush so I cant say much more as that is all I know. He will be shaved bald though and he is looking forward to that. If anyone is familiar with the comics...Can you please let me know if Leech gets killed off or if he is a big part of the comic series. They wont tell us whether Leech lives or dies in this movie. Living would be a good thing just in case of X-4 Hope you are as thrilled about this news as we are. Anne and Family.

LEECH - COMIC BIO
leech4vz.gif
leechuncanntyxmen3tm.jpg


Real name: Unrevealed
Identity: Publicly known
Occupation: Student
Legal status: Presumably a citizen of the United States with no criminal record, still a minor
Place of birth: Presumably New York City
Marital status: Single
Known relatives: Annalee (foster mother, deceased)
Base of operations: (current) Massachusetts Academy, (former) X-Factor headquarters, New York City
Group affiliation: (current) Generation X, (former) Morlocks, X-Terminators
First appearance: X-MEN # 179

History: Little is known of the origin of the mutant known as Leech. He was presumably abandoned by human parents and discovered by the mutant known as Caliban. Caliban took the young Leech with him into the network of tunnels known as the "Alley" running beneath Manhattan which housed the mutant outcasts called Morlocks. There he lived a lonely unhappy existence until the empathetic Annalee adopted him after her own children were shot dead by the Marauder assassin called Scalphunter.

Leech experienced a short-lived happiness as the foster son of Annalee until the enigmatic figure called Mister Sinister sent the Marauders to wipe out the Morlock community. Although various super heroes opposed the Marauders during the so-called “mutant massacre”, Annalee was slain in the melee. Leech, however, was saved by his friends in Power Pack and by the members of X-Factor. X-Factor was searching for their autistic trainee, Artie Mad*****, whose appearance was similar to Leech's own.

Mad***** and Leech became fast friends and X-Factor adopted Leech and began to train him in the use of his power. For a while, Leech and Artie were enrolled at the St. Simon Boarding School, during which time they worked with six other mutants trained by X-Factor calling themselves the X-Terminators, but were kidnapped by demons during the Inferno crisis.

Recently, Leech and Artie Mad***** have been in training with the new mutant team called Generation X.

Height: 4 ft. 2 in.
Weight: 67 lbs.
Eyes: Yellow, no visible pupils or irises
Hair: None
Other distinguishing features: Green Skin

Stength level: Leech possesses the normal human strength of a boy his age, height and build who engages in moderate regular exercise

Known superhuman powers: Leech is a living "power dampener" who causes the cessation of power in other living beings with superhuman abilities, mutant or otherwise. The superhuman powers of such beings cease to function within a certain radius of Leech's whereabouts. Leech has made great strides in controlling this ability and may condense his dampener field within inches of his body with great concentration. The furthest Leech has been able to project this field was up to a radius of 30 feet. It is generally assumed, however, that Leech's control over his power will increase with age.

So does this mean Morlocks(and maybe even Gambit)?
 
I love Leech...I've been away...i'm guessing the Morlocks are in?
 
Morlocks? so they are the villains or another villain? so there will be Callisto?
 
HOLY CRAP!...LEECH?!...

Man oh man...There are many different things he could provide to the storyline..

thanks retro :)

that mean that a lot of things from the first draft are still there..
imo the leech thing could be good ..
But i really hope that some of the other stuff have been rewritten. :o

The kid looks good ..something from Damien of the Omen ...innocent and worrying at the same time.. :up:

Are you being sarcastic? :confused:

I think that's a good casting, I have no idea what they could use Leech for but I like the character. I just hope his role is not too big heh :).

Oh and btw, that kid grew up to be a total b1tch on the Buttefly Effect :mad:
 
i remember leech in the x-men evolution... he was used to stop apocalypse..i think that was cool...
 
Oh and Retroman, how the hell did you find this? lol. Are you Cameron's fan or what were you doing checking his website? :confused:

Oh ok :p :up: . Good job anyway.
 
No, but really...They could be using Leech in possibly the prison scene (to keep the mutant criminals powerless), a new student at Xavier's, or he could even be amongst a few Morlocks in a couple of scenes..

Whatever it is, it's gonna be something special..

If Gambit is in it and he seduces Rogue, maybe they could somehow figure out a non creepy way of him and Rogue having a good night by having Leech sleeping in the next room. I've sort of had different ideas of some variation of that.

Anyone think maybe the mutant **** character, the one who uses pheremones to attract guys, might get Iceman to cheat on Rogue? I'd much prefer that to him cheating with Kitty, who as everyone knows should only be with Colossus among the characters that are going to be in this movie.

This kid is like the male equivalent to Dakota Fanning; he is almost creepy. If you don't believe me check out the weird-as-hell (yet interesting and thought-provoking) "Birth" starring him and Nicole Kidman.

Anyways, I think it's cool news; he's a good little actor and can't be mad at another interesting character added to the mix.

If you ever want an indication of a lovescene with Gambit and Rogue you have to get a little peculiar in your plot devices.
 
Well count me out on that one...Keep those things in the comic..

I pretty much count you out on everything TNC. You seem pretty consistantly new-idea-not-coming-from-the-filmmakers-phobic.

Wasn't he used as part of the mutant cure storyline? I remember AICN kicking up a fuss about how he being used to demutantize mutants was too similar to Jason being used to control mutants. Some form of serum.

Seems like nice enough casting to me.
