No one disputes that James Mangold struck gold when he cast Dafne Keen as X-23 in his hit film, Logan. You can even watch her audition and see why he made that choice. She was amazing.
Among Logan’s many achievements is how it’s pared down its violence into something completely visceral. This is apparent even when dealing with elements as fantastical as a psychic attack from a telepath with no control over his brain.
While Logan certainly referenced some parts of Old Man Logan, the movie’s actual story ended up being very different from that comic. However, director James Mangold has revealed that he originally chose an iconic scene from the comic as the opening for his movie.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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…
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.
Logan director James Mangold continues to post interesting bits and bobs to his Twitter account. In addition to another black-and-white shot of Hugh Jackman as Old Man Logan—one that makes it even money that the next Logan trailer uses “Ring of Fire” instead of “Hurt”—there are also some lovely storyboards.
You know, in the other black and white Old Man Logan image we got, I thought he was looking better than ever. This new photo pretty much puts that to bed. I guess the future does not come with doctors. At least not doctors Logan can trust.
Months ago, Patrick Stewart dropped the news that his version of Professor X would be appearing in the third Wolverine film. Now that we know the film is called Logan and it’s set in 2024 (as well as a certain mutant who may be starring in it), director James Mangold revealed what the Professor looks like in the near…
The latest and greatest Wolverine trailer finally shows us what we want, hot mutant action. Watch as the mutant Viper reveals all of her hidden talents.
Behold — six whole seconds of Wolverine and his quivering biceps. It's our first proper look at James Mangold's Ninja Vs. Mutants movie.
