We hear stories about actors being cast as superheroes who have never picked up a comic book all the time, but Hugh Jackman took this a step further when he showed up for his Wolverine audition back in the late ‘90s for the first X-Men movie. He didn’t even know wolverines existed—and he found out in the most…
When the very first trailer for Fox’s Logan dropped last year, it was the ad’s careful use of Johnny Cash’s haunting “Hurt” that suggested the movie would have an emotional weight and depth to it unlike any other X-Men flick. The song was always perfect crystallization of the older Wolverine’s painful struggle, but in…
Despite being Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine, the real star of Logan turned out to be Dafne Keen. Finding a very young actress to not only share a screen with Jackman, but sometimes outshine him, sounds like a nearly impossible task. But after you see this clip of Keen’s audition, you’ll realize casting her…
Director James Mangold just announced that his hit film Logan will return to theaters for one night only in a special black and white version.
Logan truly feels like the end of an era for the X-Men movies. Not just because Hugh Jackman is leaving the character behind, but because it comes at a time when the franchise itself feels up in the air. X-Men: Apocalypse disappointed, Deadpool wowed, and TV entry Legion is surprising. Who knows what’s next?
Sorry, Logan does not have an end credits scene. That’s just a fact. But that doesn’t mean Fox doesn’t want to give something for fans for freak out about, and now we know what it is.
It looks like Hugh Jackman isn’t the only one hanging up his mutant hat after Logan. Patrick Stewart has announced that he’s officially retiring from the X-Men franchise, saying, “I’m done.”
The poster for Logan said it all: “One Last Time.” Hugh Jackman has made it clear that he wants the new film, out March 3, to be his last round as Wolverine. However, in a new interview, he admitted if things were different in the Marvel universe, he’d keep going.
Anyone who’s seen the trailers could easily guess that Logan is the best solo Wolverine movie, but it’s more than that. It’s a legitimately special movie that just happens to star superheroes—a film that wouldn’t be out of place at the Academy Awards. And it’s still just as badass as any Wolverine fan could want.
We all know the story. For years 20th Century Fox, the controllers of the rights to all Marvel X-Men properties, was too worried to make the R-rated Deadpool. They didn’t think something that raunchy or violent could work in the superhero genre. Then, finally, after years of saying “No,” they finally said “Yes”—and…
We could not be more excited for Logan, the R-rated return to the X-Universe starring Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. And the latest look at the film just solidifies that.
It’s hard to imagine, given that he’s appeared in more X-Men movies than anyone else, but Hugh Jackman says he had a fair amount of trouble getting the character of Wolverine right when he first started.
Sure, a version of “Deadpool” and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine have already teamed up, thanks to the excruciating X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but wouldn’t it be amazing if Ryan Reynold’s wittily maniacal mercenary could join forces with Hugh Jackman’s Logan? Well, Reynolds agrees—and he’s actively trying to get Jackman to…
In Hollywood, the prevailing thought is an R-rating holds a film back. The feeling is, by limiting the audience to people over 17, studios aren’t allowing films to live up to their full financial potential. Forget the fact forcing a rating hinders creativity and kids will see a movie anyway, it’s just the way some…
Today in New York, 20th Century Fox showcased a few of its big genre movies that are currently in production. The one seemingly getting the most buzz is the third Wolverine film, Logan.
As someone who digs sports and giant robots, I hope I’m not the only person who is a fan of Real Steel. The 2011 Hugh Jackman film about robot boxing is one of those predictable but fun Hollywood films designed to give you goosebumps. And it really would have done that, had a certain moment not been deleted.
The choice to use Johnny Cash’s cover of “Hurt” for the Logan trailer certainly sent a message. This is going to be a very different superhero movie than what we’re used to. But what happens if you take that song, and the mournful mood it generates, and stretch it back into the previous films?
They say you can’t know where you’re going unless you know where you’ve been.
Hugh Jackman has proclaimed that Wolverine 3 will be his final time playing the X-Men character that made him a star, and now we know who will be portraying his big adversary in the film: Boyd Holbrook, as “the chief of security for a global corporation” that’s after the titular hero.
It’s no secret we’ve been pretty critical and dismissive of Disney’s seemingly non-stop need to remake every single one of their iconic animated films in live-action. And yet, with a single video, one of those upcoming remakes just got infinitely more exciting.
