With news of the New X-Men Wolverine film, landing in theaters this coming July 26, 2013, will this event cause renewed demand for Sterns X-Men Pins? The Comic Art makes the Theme transferable in my opinion.

As an owner I do not care all that much either way.

This new movie is "The Wolverine", which is more of a sequel to the first Wolvie movie than a full X-Men sequel. Supposed to be based on the Silver Samurai storyline.

The next full "team" movie will be based on the Days of Future Past storyline and come out in 2014.

Awesome, double header back to back. Two more years of Mainstream attention that we know of.

The X-men movies are really boring to me...I have never stayed awake through one until the 1st Class one came out, now that movie was good. Other then that, they are a snooze fest and so is the pin as far as I am concerned. I HATE AC/DC and I'd rather have it over an xmen easily.

fake trailers rock

Fake?

Yeah, both of the YouTube links you put up were fan trailers. First one was spliced from the previous movies. Second one was done from artwork. No worries though. It's always interesting to see what other people's creativity generates...

I think Laser eyes is like um, dead and stuff. Too soon I know!

Don't think Stern would do much more with XM besides code update.

Interesting. Glad I got a Wolverine...

Yeah dude...you're aware the fourth x-men movie came out almost two years ago, right?

Why does a 5 month old game need 'new life' breathed into it?

The upcoming Wolverine 2 followed a year later by the new X-men (tentatively planned).

Quoted from DrStarkweather:

Cuz it's still in production. The more interest, the more sales for Stern, the more people playing pinball!!!

Also, if X-Men ends up being a sales disappointment compared to movie based games, Stern might not experiment with non-movie licenses/artwork again.
