The Movie Book Madam X

Angela Robinson, the filmmaker behind 2017's Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, which told the true story behind the creation of the Wonder Woman comic character, is staying in the comic book realm for her next project. Robinson is teaming up with J.J. Abrams to executive produce Madame X, a new HBO Max series that is based on the DC Comics character of the same name.

THR says the Madame X character is part of the Justice League Dark universe and describes her as "a sorceress who has helped the Suicide Squad and serves as Spectre's spiritual adviser and, in DC's The New 52, assists the Dark League and was revealed to be the mother of villain Doctor Destiny." Abrams, whose Bad Robot Productions has a $250 million deal with WarnerMedia, is already involved with building out Justice League Dark universe on HBO Max, including a Justice League Dark show, a Constantine series, and potentially even movies as well. Zatanna, another magic-centric character involved with that team in the pages of DC Comics, is getting her own movie written by Oscar winner and Promising Young Woman writer Emerald Fennell.

This sounds like it could be a cool project for Robinson, who has been on my radar since she her 2004 "schoolgirl secret agent" movie, D.E.B.S. Since then, she's directed Herbie Fully Loaded, and episodes of The L Word, Charlie's Angels, and True Blood.

J.J. Abrams is also said to be developing a woke Superman movie along with Ta-Nehisi Coates but there is the question if that has been canceled, too, as David Zaslav wants Henry Cavill back as the Man of Steel.

The filmmaker previously had an overall deal with Paramount TV, but she's upped sticks and headed over to Warner Bros. to join Bad Robot's rapidly expanding roster of DC properties in various stages of development for HBO Max and the big screen. Madame Xanadu made her first comic book appearance back in 1978, and subsequent explorations of her origin story have placed her as Nimue, younger sister of Morgaine Le Fay and Vivienne, the Lady of the Lake, directly tying her to Arthurian folklore. The character appeared in an episode of the animated series Young Justice.

Bad Robot are going all-in on the DC Universe, with the aforementioned shows joined by the animated Batman: Caped Crusader that's being fronted by Abrams, Matt Reeves and Bruce Timm, as well as the new Superman movie penned by Ta-Nehisi Coates and Zatanna, which is being written by recent Academy Award winner Emerald Fennell.

Included in the list of DC projects in development for HBO Max are a few tied to the Justice League Dark team and concept. J.J. Abrams is working with DC and HBO Max to create a Justice League Dark universe. This will include a Constantine show and reportedly a Zatanna solo movie. The plan is for the various Justice League Dark characters to eventually crossover in a Justice League Dark project. Now, we know of another character Abrams seemingly wants to include in this universe.

Abrams is said to be developing a Justice League Dark franchise for HBO Max, of which this would be a part. Among the other projects that would tie into it are the Constantine reboot and the Superman movie Ta-Nehisi Coates is writing. Robinson herself has plenty of geek cred, having written Web for DC Comics, along with directing Professor Marston & the Wonder Women.

It's been a year since the news of the collaboration between JJ Abrams (the filmmaker) teaming up with Angela Robinson (the famed television and film screenwriter, director, and producer) came out. The team then started with the work of the HBO Max series featuring the comic book character Madam X. Sources also revealed that Abrams and his wife personally hired Robinson to write and supervise the HBO Max title.

DC Comics stories range from grounded to cosmic, though rarely do folks discuss how mystical they can get, too. One of the most prominent characters to ever contribute to this aspect of the DC universe is Nimue Inwudu, better known as Madame Xanadu. Introduced in "Doorway to Nightmare" #1 from early 1978, she boasts a range of magical abilities and a vast knowledge of the occult, making her one of the most fascinating characters in the DC canon. However, that hasn't translated to much mainstream attention, especially in non-comic book media.

Volume 5 of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Hardcovers lists the X-Men cartoon as part of the Marvel multiverse, inhabiting Earth-92131. Also, the plague-infested future that Bishop tried to prevent in Season 2 is listed as Earth-13393 while Cable's release of the immediate cure of the plague is listed as Earth-121893.

X-Men originally aired on TV Tokyo from 1994 through 1995. For the TV Tokyo dub of the series, the intro was replaced with a new, Japanese-animated sequence as well as a new theme called "Rising" (ライジング), by the band Ambience (アンビエンス). Starting with episode 42, a second new intro was used, featuring the song "Dakishimetai Dare Yori Mo" (抱きしめたい誰よりも...). The end credits sequence was also changed: it featured shots of American X-Men comic books set to the song "Back to You" (バックトウユー), also by Ambience.

X-Men Adventures was a comic book spin-off of the animated series. Beginning in November 1992, it adapted the first three seasons of the show; in April 1996, it became Adventures of the X-Men, which contained original stories set within the same continuity.[23] The comic book lasted until March 1997, shortly after the show's cancellation by the Fox Network.

The comic book series X-Men '92 was first released as one of the many tie-in titles for Marvel's 2015 Secret Wars event, and continued in its second volume as a regular series in early 2016, starring characters of the TV show's reality.[28]

In 2017, series developer and showrunner Eric Lewald released the book Previously on X-Men: The Making of an Animated Series, which features his interviews with 36 of the staff and voice cast behind the TV series, as well as Lewald's personal experiences on the series' development and production.[30]

In 2020, Eric Lewald and Julia Lewald released the book X-Men: The Art and Making of The Animated Series, which features previously unseen concept art, storyboards, character models, background layouts, animation cels, and other production/promotional materials, along with new interviews with the series principal artists and production staff.[31]

It's almost impossible for there to be a completely faithful book to movie adaptation. Budget constraints, directorial choices and the limitations of visual media mean changes are inevitable. For a book series set in the expansive Wizarding World, it was a given that the Harry Potter movies were not going to be a direct copy of the books as soon as they were announced. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone changed several aspects of the book it adapted, and here are a few of the biggest changes.

The Harry Potter series kicked off with a scene every movie fan can instantly recognize: Harry clambering out of his cupboard while being harassed by his adoptive family. It perfectly explained the dynamic between Harry and the Dursleys in very little time. While the book had a similar interaction, it took a more dedicated approach to Harry's extended family. The very first chapter of Sorcerer's Stone illustrated a day in Vernon Dursley's painfully ordinary life. For the first and only time, the reader visited his firm, Grunnings, and returned to Aunt Petunia at Privet Drive, who had an equally mundane day, ignoring Dudley's antics.

The movie iteration of Harry's first visit to the wizarding marketplace retained most of the elements the book described, but as always, a direct page-to-screen adaptation was impossible. He visited Diagon Alley with Hagrid after being rescued from the Dursleys. In the Sorcerer's Stone movie, Harry was able to get his school supplies without much incident, but he had a marginally more exciting day in the book.

While visiting Madam Malkins, Harry encountered an unpleasant young wizard who he'd soon come to know as Draco Malfoy. Their first meeting went about as well as one would expect, but Draco's appearance wasn't the only change that the movie made to the Diagon Alley trip. Right after Harry was done getting his school supplies, he was escorted to King's Cross Station to catch the Hogwarts Express by Hagrid. In the books, however, he spent one final month with the Dursleys perusing his new textbooks before setting off for Hogwarts.
