This year, 20th Century Fox has three movies going into production that take place in the X-Men universe. There’s Deadpool 2 (which debuted a teaser in front of Logan), The New Mutants from director Josh Boone, and the next X-Men movie, which won’t be called Supernova as has been rumored, but may end up having franchise producer and writer Simon Kinberg direct.
Speaking of which, Kinberg has been making the publicity rounds while promoting Logan (make sure you check out that interview linked above!), and he’s addressed everything from X-Force to the possibility of him directing the next X-Men movie, and even what will happen with the character of Wolverine.

If you’re one of those people who gets frustrated because the Academy Awards don’t nominate the science fiction, fantasy, and horror films you love for Best Picture or any of the other categories, then the Saturn Awards are for you.
The 2017 Saturn Award nominations have just been announced, and not only did Rogue One: A Star Wars Story come out on top with 11 nominations, but all those comic book movies that never had a chance in hell of getting a Best Picture nomination landed a bunch of nods. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Doctor Strange, Suicide Squad, Deadpool, Captain America: Civil War and even X-Men: Apocalypse all received nominations.
But this isn’t just a comic book movie celebration, because plenty of other genre films landed nominations too. Star Trek Beyond, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and 10 Cloverfield Lane are just some of the other films that ended up getting nominated for awards, too.
Check out the full list of 2017 Saturn Awards nominees below. Read More »

We’ve known for awhile that Logan was going to be the last ride for Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. The reason we’ve been waiting so long for the movie is because he and director James Mangold wanted to get this one right for themselves and the fans. Thankfully, they succeeded with flying colors.
In fact, Logan is such a sensation that Sir Patrick Stewart was inclined to announce that he was going to follow Hugh Jackman’s example by retiring from the X-Men franchise as well. During one screening of the movie, Stewart was so moved that he just couldn’t imagine playing Professor X again after a movie like this. The bar was set too high. However, the actor has walked back that statement a bit, and there’s still a chance for him to come back to the role under the right circumstances.
Why is Patrick Stewart not retiring from X-Men movies anymore? Find out after the jump. Read More »
