When we say “first image from Deadpool,” we of course mean the first movie still from the actual film. There have been a lot of Deadpool images released to far, social media leaks for example, not to mention all those jokey shots of Ryan Reynolds‘ Merc with the Mouth lounging on a bear skin rug, taking it easy on the toilet, and, of course, delivering a baby. With San Diego Comic Con coming up though, it’s time that things got official, and along with the above new image, the star and creators of the film are opening up about the experience in a preview of SDCC, and in the process deliver a confirmation that yes, this is a Hard-R superhero flick.

Everyone knows that old adage, “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.” Still, after Hugh Jackman, the one actor who has shown up in every single movie set in the X-Men world, claimed that Wolverine 3 would be his next and last appearance as that awesome Canadian mutant Wolverine, everyone seemed to take this as gospel. Somehow, everyone managed to forget that Jackman has claimed this same thing in the past, before showing up in X-Men: Days of Future Past, then quickly contradicted himself by claiming that he would play the character until he died, if Fox let him. If the latest rumors are correct, it appears that Jackman has fooled us all again, as it seems that Wolverine will in fact show up in X-Men: Apocalypse. Shame on us. (more…)
It was with great regret that Hugh Jackman told fans a little while ago that Wolverine 3 would be his last turn at the mutant hero who’s the best at what he does. The news was understandable just the same though because by the time that Wolverine 3 will be release, Jackman will have played the part for nearly 20 years. Wolverine maybe ageless, but Jackman is not, and since he’s a talented actor, he’s probably interested in doing more with his time, career and clout than playing an angry berserker with metal claws every couple of years. So with all that in mind, what could Wolverine 3 possibly be about? What would make a satisfying endgame for Jackman’s tenure as Wolverine? Your comic collection may have the answer and it’s called Old Man Logan. (more…)
Channing Tatum is one of the world’s most beloved male actors, though it is pretty easy to assume that his legions of fans may not necessarily be chasing him so that he can throw down a line from “Macbeth”. Still, after his award winning turn in Foxcatcher, audiences are a bit more excited to see his take on everyone’s favorite Cajun X-Man, Gambit. With X-Men: Apocalypse quickly approaching, many were hoping that audiences would be treated to a scene with the Ragin’ Cajun when the mutants return to the big screen on May 26, 2016. Unfortunately, Tatum has officially killed those hopes. According to a recent Reddit AMA, Tatum has confirmed, in no uncertain terms, that Gambit will not be appearing with his X-Men brethren any time soon. (more…)
That Bryan Singer fella sure does love social media. Continuing the path that he has taken to connect directly with fans for quite some time now – and ramped up even further during the production of X-Men: Days of Future Past, the director of the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse has been giving his followers a fairly steady stream of cool photos and surprisingly-informative behind-the-scenes content. Today we received another tidbit from him – check this crazy photo of the whole world going sideways!
Hugh Jackman has been Wolverine for a long time, having played the character in 7 films over a course of 17 years. He has left a lasting impression, that’s for sure. You could say that Jackman is, was, and forever will be the on-screen iteration of the ragin’ killing machine with claws. Except he won’t be, for much longer.
Jackman announced a while back that after Wolverine 3 (which is nearing production), he’ll be retiring from the role. Someone else will eventually come it and take up the mantle.
Though he hasn’t talked much about since he made the announcement, he did talk to a number of outlets in support of his upcoming documentary Dukale’s Dream, explaining further he’s reasoning for stepping away from the character. (more…)
There’s a two person race in Hollywood to see which actor can play their comic book character in the most number of movies. An unofficial race, mind you, but a race just the same. Robert Downey Jr. has appeared as Tony Stark/Iron Man in six movies so far, but his seventh, Captain America: Civil War, will be released next year. That will tie him with Hugh Jackman, who’s appeared as Logan/Wolverine in five X-Men movies and two Wolverine spin-off films. So the ball is in Jackman’s court to up the ante, and while he doesn’t have as many options as Downey does, he does have options. For example, he could appear in the upcoming Deadpool movie, and if the actor playing the Merc with the Mouth is to be believed, it may actually happen. (more…)
Twentieth Century Fox and producer Simon Kinberg are set with an arsenal of Marvel-minded films. The Fantastic Four reboot is in its marketing stages, and shooting for X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool has started simultaneously. Add to that talk of Wolverine 3 and New Mutants, it may be hard for fans to keep up. It’s important, however, not to let one name get caught in the shuffle– Remy LeBeau, aka Gambit. (more…)
There’s a curious phenomenon occurring with Marvel Comics Merchandise these days. Classic characters are disappearing from classic scenes, characters that just happen to belong to the FOX studio superhero movie portfolio. That’s right, not only did Marvel cancel the Fantastic Four comic, now it seems that the characters FOX owns the movie rights to are now being actively removed from Marvel Merchandise like the shirt above.
