There’s something heartwarming about seeing your favorite science fiction and fantasy films turned into kids’ books. Morphing brutal, hard-R rated content in happy, funny ways is the trademark of artist Joey Spiotto, who’s about to debut another new series in this vein.
Folks, I’ll keep this brief-ish because it doesn’t deserve too much of anyone’s time. There have been rumblings on the internet (that’s code for “I saw at least one blog and/or tweet about this”) that we should be wondering whether Wolverine (aka Logan), a super strong and frequently brooding mutant character from…
Logan might stand out as its own film, not needing or wanting to include parts of the X-Men franchise that didn’t serve the story, but it turns out we were pretty close to getting a rather depressing ode to the Phoenix herself.
If you want to see a superhero movie, go see Captain America. If you want to see a Western, go see The Magnificent Seven. If you want to see a road movie, go see Mad Max: Fury Road. If you want to see a superhero Western road movie that’s also set in the future, go see Logan. The cars themselves are worth it, and…
Greeting my little stamp... sidekicks... no, soul mates—wait, that’s way too personal... my little, uh.. envelope envoys? Uh, sure. this week: The most consistent fictional universe of all time! A classic fantasy series that may actually get made as a movie! And the worst decision The Walking Dead could make! Let’s…
Logan breaks new ground for comic-book movies, but it has plenty of company in the world of film and other media—works that share its grim and weary worldview, as well its themes of aging ungracefully, unconventional families, and anti-heroism. Want to keep the Logan bummer alive? Check out this list.
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?
The ideal of digital doubles—a CG recreation of an actor’s face being used over footage of a real stunt performer—is hardly new in cinema. But the work done on seamlessly integrating them into Logan is nothing short of amazing.
Most of Logan’s marketing was presented in crisp, moody black-and-white, but the film itself is not—and its lonesome Western backdrops and dystopian road-trip vibes come through in some of the movie’s concept art, created by illustrator and designer Shae Shatz.
The gut-wrenching, excellent Logan finally hit theaters this weekend—and while there may not be a post-credit stinger to tease the future of the X-Men movie universe, there is still a lot to talk about. And probably be sad about, too. So consider this your moment, if you’ve seen the movie, to let rip about what you…
Director James Mangold is letting audiences know exactly why Logan, the final X-Men film for both Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart, doesn’t have a post-credits sequence. Although, honestly, it kind of goes without saying.
Are you curious to see what Wolverine was thumbing through during Logan? The creator has unveiled a few of the pages, and it looks like Kitty Pryde’s got some family drama.
Ryan Reynolds has made our collective dreams come true by unveiling the clip that teases Deadpool 2's impending arrival. Freak-out time!
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.
Matt Nix’s X-Men TV show also adds an important cast member. The team behind Alien: Covenant discusses copious amounts of blood and the design of its new Alien. Finn Jones wants Misty Knight and Colleen Wing to get their own TV show. Plus, a new behind-the-scenes look at Justice League, and Supergirl casts an iZombie…
Old Man Wolverine might finally achieve his dream of starring in a two-hour-long Johnny Cash music video. Logan director James Mangold announced he’s working on releasing a black and white version of the film.
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.
Hugh Jackman might be hanging up his claws after Logan, but director James Mangold is determined to keep the Wolverine saga going with X-23.
