Spoof movie series on YouTube takes crack at 'Logan,' finds it not so easy to skewer, calls in Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds — who can't add much snark
Jackman stars as famed circus ringmaster PT Barnum in an all-new big screen musical, arriving January 2018.
Many big names were linked with the role of Jack Sparrow before Johnny Depp joined the cast of 'Pirates of the Caribbean'.
In a recently resurfaced 2009 Howard Stern interview, Hugh Jackman got to talking about filming X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The actor admitted to going nude on set for the scene where Wolverine escapes the Weapon X facility after the adamantium bonding process. He was completely comfortable going au naturel and said, “The only problem is the PG-13 rating.”
It’s no secret that Logan owes a big tip of the cowboy hat to Shane. X-23, are glimpsed watching Shane in a Las Vegas hotel room.) But Hugh Jackman tells Yahoo Movies that another Western came close to inspiring the ending he initially imagined for his signature X-Man, one that would have granted Wolverine a stay of execution.
Spoilers! Major, huge spoilers for ‘Logan’ follow, so be warned and turned back if you’re yet to see the critically acclaimed superhero drama. ‘Logan’ director James Mangold has confirmed that he sowed the seeds for the new film’s heart-rending ending four years in his first X-Men spin-off ‘The Wolverine’.
EXCLUSIVE : Michael Mann’s Ferrari is revving again, with Hugh Jackman now in talks to play Enzo Ferrari, and Noomi Rapace to play his estranged wife Linda. Their relationship, as fiery and combustible as the race cars that Ferrari designed, plays a big part in the script Mann wrote. They have loosely been discussing this teaming for months, and now things are starting to move for a summer 2018 production start. This comes as Jackman’s final Wolverine turn, Logan, has…
20th Century Fox has released an emotional new video revealing Hugh Jackman’s last day on ‘Logan’, his final time playing X-Men hero Wolverine, and you can see the Aussie star choking up with emotion as he thanks the assembled cast and crew after the last “cut” is called. The ‘Logan’ “Legacy” trailer can be watched above, but you’ll want to skip ahead to the 01:48 mark to see Hugh’s final day on set. “It’s a really surreal day,” says Jackman, 17 years on from ‘X-Men’, his first film as Wolverine.
Appearing on Instagram, he revealed a candid look at one of his ‘Logan’ recording sessions… and it’s the funniest thing you’ll see all day. Clearly, Jackman is channelling a lot of rage in this hysterical (and slightly scary) new clip… But it’s absolutely amazing how easily he can turn it off at the very end of the video, when he calmly turns to the camera and simply says: “Hi”.
The immensely pleasing mock-rivalry between Ryan Reynolds – aka Deadpool – and Hugh Jackman – aka Wolverine – continues apace. And with Jackman out on the road promoting his latest X-Men outing ‘Logan’, it’s provided Reynolds with a bit of an open goal. Jackman dropped a few snaps over the weekend of the movie’s premiere in Beijing, picturing him with fans.

Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine has brought in the crowds, with ‘Logan’ delivering a sturdy $237.8 million (that’s just shy of £200 million) at the box office. Clearly the r-rated take on Jackman’s troubled hero has proved a draw, this latest iteration from director James Mangold being the most brooding and brutal yet. Presumed to be the final outing for Wolverine, it plays more like a late period John Wayne western than it does like a conventional superhero film’.
What would make the already pretty flipping moody X-Men movie ‘Logan’ even moodier? Taking out all the colour, that’s what. And according to director James Mangold, that could well be the plan. Asked by a fan to get right on converting the movie to monochrome on Twitter, he replied to the affirmative, saying simply: “Workin’ on it.” @AdamMcDee Workin' on it.
It took just one trailer for Hugh Jackman’s final turn as Wolverine in ‘Logan’ to go from being a film many struggled to get excited about, to one they couldn’t wait to see. The film is unlike any superhero movie before it. Essentially a western, it’s grisly, astoundingly mature and director James Mangold can’t believe he got to make it.
The first reviews for ‘Logan’ are in – and if this is indeed Hugh Jackman’s swansong as the iconic superhero Wolverine, it looks he’s really going out with a bang. With 57 reviews taken into account thus far at Rotten Tomatoes, ‘Logan’ currently has a magnificent 96% fresh rating – the highest score yet for an entry in the ‘X-Men’ series.
‘Logan’ may (or, possibly may not?) mark Hugh Jackman’s retirement from his signature role, but it seems director James Mangold isn’t necessarily done with the ‘X-Men’ universe. Speaking to We Got This Covered, Mangold expressed hopes that he may revisit the key new character that will be introduced in ‘Logan’ – young Wolverine clone X-23, played by child actress Dafne Keen.
It looks as though ‘Logan’ is definitely going it alone. During an interview with We Got This Covered, director James Mangold revealed that an early draft included some awesome-sounding mutant cameos… but they didn’t make the cut. “There were times early on in the story where I played with the idea of Hugh coming along, and I don’t want to give away anything, but I played with there being an underground railroad where there were a couple of other mutants that he met on the journey,” he explained.
