It’s hard to believe the next Wolverine movie is less than six months away, especially given how little we’ve seen or heard about it. We’ve yet to see a single teaser, poster, or official still. Heck, the movie hasn’t even revealed an official title. But we can expect a big reveal soon, according to Hugh Jackman. The star says we’ll get more details “in the next week or so.” And to get the party started, he teased a “very different” tone for his final outing as the clawed mutant. Read More »

It’s only been four months since X-Men: Apocalypse hit theaters, but it feels like it’s been much longer. That might be a testament to just how forgettable of an X-Men sequel it was, even though I did find enough to enjoy in it to keep me from simply hating it. Now we’re being reminded of the film again as it’s now available on Digital HD and will be hitting Blu-ray and DVD on October 4th, and the release of the film on home video has provided us with confirmation of one particular detail in the forthcoming Wolverine 3.
The Marvel Comics villain Mr. Sinister has been confirmed to be a villain in Wolverine 3, which as we already know will mark Hugh Jackman‘s last time playing the adamantium-clad mutant. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

The Greatest Showman is collecting a pretty great cast. Hugh Jackman has been set to lead the P.T. Barnum musical biopic for several years already, and in recent months the project has really started to pick up steam with Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, and Zendaya all coming aboard as well. Now the latest addition is Rebecca Ferguson, the Swedish actress who stole scenes last year in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Read More »

We haven’t seen much from Hugh Jackman‘s final performance as Wolverine, but we’re not that far off from the film’s release date. In seven months, we’ll see what kind of goodbye director James Mangold and Jackman have in store for the character. Jackman may not be the only one departing from the X-Men universe, as Sir Patrick Stewart says Wolverine 3 is possibly his last time playing Charlies Xavier.
Below, learn more about the potential final Patrick Stewart X-Men performance.

Hugh Jackman has been attached to the P.T. Barnum biopic The Greatest Showman on Earth for almost seven years. Every once in a blue moon, we’d get an update saying the project, which centers on the founder of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, is alive and well. After years of development, the project is maybe more alive than ever, as another actor, Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea), may finally join Jackman in The Greatest Showman on Earth.
Below, learn more about the biopic and who Michelle Williams might play.

Throughout the early 2000s, Zac Efron jumped around with small roles in TV shows and made-for-TV movies. But he caught his big break on The Disney Channel as one of the stars of High School Musical. The TV movies sparked two sequels, one of which actually ended up in theaters, and gave Efron the firm footing to launch a film career. Since then, he’s only returned to the musical world once with a supporting turn in Hairspray, but now he’ll finally be singing and dancing on the big screen again.
Zac Efron is currently in talks to take a role alongside Hugh Jackman in The Greatest Showman on Earth, the circus musical that has been developing since 2009, following the creation of the three-ring Barnum & Bailey Circus.

As the third film in the most recent trilogy in the X-Men franchise, it’s pretty bold to have a joke in X-Men: Apocalypse that mentions the third film in a trilogy is usually the worst. The line is meant to take a shot at the almost universally hated X-Men: The Last Stand, and while X-Men: Apocalypse is nowhere near as bad as Brett Ratner’s film from 2006, it’s not without some shortcomings of its own.
X-Men: Apocalypse has a simple, hollow story, spinning a wheel that also treads water. However, it also does a great job of bringing the young versions of familiar X-Men into this modified timeline and delivers some thoroughly entertaining action. In short, X-Men: Apocalypse feels like an extended episode of X-Men: The Animated Series, for better and worse.

A few months ago, it was rumored that The Wolverine 3 would be shooting for an R rating. But not because of the success of Deadpool. No sir. It definitely has nothing to do with that film skyrocketing to the top of the superhero heap, becoming the highest-grossing X-Men movie and trampling the likes of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at the domestic box office. Yep, this was certainly a decision being made entirely independent of that. Of course. Uh huh.
Anyway, producer Simon Kinberg recently sat down for a new interview and confirmed that the next (and possibly final) adventure of Hugh Jackman‘s adamantium-clawed superhero will be R-rated. He also announced the movie has quietly begun filming and that yes, everyone was correct when they assumed that this movie would be based on the “Old Man Logan” storyline.

Just yesterday, the final trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse arrived, and along with all the destruction that comes from the film’s title villain played by Oscar Isaac was a little tease of the return of Wolverine, played by Hugh Jackman. When we last left Wolverine in X-Men: Days of Future Past, he was being rescued from drowning by Mystique in disguise as William Stryker, and many fans have been wondering where we’ll find him in this sequel.
The X-Men: Apoclaypse trailer offered a little hint of the clawed, healing mutant helping out the young versions of Cyclops and Jean Grey take down some bad guys. Now director Bryan Singer talks a little more about what we can expect from his place in the movie, which he says features “the birth of a new direction.” Find out more about Wolverine in X-Men Apocalypse after the jump.
