A Deadpool/Wolverine film is still possible - in the depths of Ryan Reynolds' mind, at least. Deadpool 2 does, at least, take place years before Logan, in which - SPOILER ALERT - Wolverine was killed off, in a final salute to the mutant. "He's alive and well in my timeline," Reynolds pointed out to Entertainment Weekly.
Dafne Keen, the star of X-Men spin-off Logan, has signed up for the lead role in the BBC’s big budget adaptation of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials. Tom Hooper, helmsman of Oscar-winners including Les Misérables and The King’s Speech, is now on board to direct, according to Deadline, after working his scheduling around a forthcoming movie adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Cats. Keen will play Lyra Belacqua in the planned eight-part series, an orphaned girl brought up in an alternate version of Oxford, who comes into possession of a valuable instrument which can answer any question asked of it.
"Hobbit" star Richard Armitage will play mutant hero in 10-episode mystery-thriller series coming next spring.
If Disney does indeed buy Fox, allowing their characters to appear in Marvel Studios films, is this necessarily a good thing?
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’.
After 17 years of playing Charles Xavier, Sir Patrick Stewart has decided to call time on his tenure as the iconic X-Men leader. The 76-year-old actor says his performance as an aged Professor X in ‘Logan’ will be his last outing in 20th Century Fox’s popular superhero franchise, calling it “the most perfect way to say au revoir” to the character. Hugh Jackman has long stated that ‘Logan’ would be his final film playing Wolverine, but Stewart admits he only decided it would be his last outing after seeing the film play at the Berlin Film Festival.
Since Hugh Jackman first teased he was to hang up Wolverine’s adamantium claws for good and step away from the role he first played 17 years ago, many naturally wondered what drove him to making the decision. With Jackman’s final outing as the famed X-Man approaching in March’s ‘Logan’, Jackman has revealed it was comedian Jerry Seinfeld who drove the decision, after talking to him about leaving his hit US sitcom Seinfeld on a creative high. “He doesn’t particularly like parties, and I’m a little the same,” Jackman told Empire Magazine in this month’s (issue 333) cover feature.
A new ‘Logan’ trailer is here… and it’s pretty epic. Exploding onto the internet, the latest ‘Logan’ trailer has already blown ‘X-Men’ fans away. Featuring a longer look at Laura Kinney – aka X-23 – the new trailer shows us exactly why we needed an R-Rated Wolverine movie.
2017 looks set to be a banner year for superhero cinema, so here are 10 of the biggest blockbusters based on comic book properties set to dominate over the year ahead.
Hugh Jackman looking extremely miffed in the first trailer for ‘Logan’. Hugh Jackman took a pay cut to ensure his final outing as mutant superhero Wolverine was as bloody and sweary as he and fans have been craving. James Mangold, who directs Jackman in ‘Logan’, revealed the detail following a screening of 40 minutes of footage at an event in Texas.
20th Century Fox released the sombre first trailer for ‘Logan’, and it’s a doozy. Featuring Hugh Jackman as an aged Wolverine and Patrick Stewart as Professor Xavier, ‘Logan’ is set to be the third and final solo outing for Wolverine, so it’s fitting that the first trailer has been scored with Johnny Cash’s cover of ‘Hurt’, one of the iconic musician’s last hits.
