The sun is setting on Hugh Jackman‘s tenure as Wolverine (well, assuming Ryan Reynolds can’t coax him back for a Deadpool crossover), but he’s not going out quietly. The former X-Man may be older and grayer in Logan — and thanks to the decline of his mutant powers, he’s in a state of chronic pain that he self-medicates with booze. But he’s still got the ability to unleash hell when the situation calls for it, and he finds himself compelled to do just that when he meets Laura (Dafne Keen), a young mutant who needs his help.
The latest Logan trailer from 20th Century Fox offers just a little taste of the fight to come, and you can watch it after the jump.

It’s no secret that a new Logan trailer is coming soon. 20th Century Fox is sending out the frames of the trailer to some lucky fans to assemble online (they’re on the way already), and the new glimpse at the Wolverine sequel should be coming shortly thereafter.
In the meantime, director James Mangold is holding fans over with some new images from the set featuring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and franchise newcomer Dafne Keen as X-23. Plus, he’s also release a snippet of the score from The Wolverine composer Marco Beltrami (not Cliff Martinez), and it sounds rather haunting and frantic.
Listen to the Logan score preview and see the images after the jump. Read More »

Welcome to today’s edition of “Your Favorite Comic Book Movie Stars Talk a Whole Bunch,” where Hugh Jackman showcases some hesitation about officially retiring as Wolverine (because he’d like to team up with Deadpool, you see) and Ryan Reynolds says Logan could be an Oscar contender. Superhero movie stars and celebrities: What Do They Know? Do They Know Things?? Let’s Find Out!

Instead of offering a sneak peek of the next Logan trailer (expected sometime in January) by way of a trailer for the trailer, 20th Century Fox is doing something a little different. They’ve decided to set up a website where you can sign up with your personal address, and they’ll send you a postcard of one out of the 1,974 frames that make up the trailer.
For those doing the math, with there being 24 frames per every second of film, the trailer is about 82 seconds long (nearly a minute and a half). Also, fun fact, 1974 just happens to be the year that Wolverine debuted in Marvel Comics, in an issue of The Incredible Hulk.
The prospect of a new Logan trailer is enticing, but what about the possibility of seeing Wolverine and Deadpool in the same movie? The rumor about Ryan Reynolds appearing Logan has been totally debunked by both the actor and Logan director James Mangold, but that doesn’t mean we won’t have a chance of seeing the characters on the big screen again, this time the right way.

As we’re all aware by now, Logan is Hugh Jackman‘s very last film as Wolverine — a role he’s been playing for a decade and a half now, starting with 2000’s X-Men. That fact adds an extra layer of poignancy to what already looks like a very bittersweet film, which in turn should make this movie even more of a must-see for fans. So the 20th Century Fox marketing team is leaning into it, hard, with a new Logan poster and a new Logan poster that literally show the sun setting on Hugh Jackman’s time as Wolverine. Check ’em out below. Read More »

Deadpool definitively proved that an R-rated superhero can make money. But just because the Merc managed to somersault over box office records doesn’t mean there’s no risk involved. Apparently 20th Century Fox was still a little apprehensive about the notion of making Logan an R-rated feature. So Hugh Jackman decided to make things a little easier for them. According to Logan director James Mangold, the actor agreed to a pay cut in exchange for the opportunity to make an R-rated Wolverine movie. Read More »
Even though there were some worries about Deadpool 2 after director Tim Miller left the project due to creative differences with star and producer Ryan Reynolds, the project seems to be back on track with John Wick helmer David Leitch behind the camera
While we’re still waiting to hear about Deadpool 2 casting for new roles like Cable (which was a point of contention between Miller and Reynolds) and Domino (who has a shortlist of actresses who were in contention for the role), there’s one more Marvel Comics character Ryan Reynolds wants to bring into the franchise: Wolverine.

Aside from that spectacular trailer, we know precious little about Logan, the tenth movie in 20th Century Fox’s X-Men series and the swan song for Hugh Jackman‘s Wolverine. What we do know has been fed to us via social media, with those involved in the production of the film offering little tidbits here and there.
The latest morsel comes from Mr. Jackman himself, who took to Twitter to share a new look at Richard E. Grant‘s character. We also have a name for the Logan villain, and you can find out what it is below.

Logan is a full-color movie, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at the official images, most of which have been presented in crisp black and white. They’ve got a dramatic, old-fashioned fel to them, but the lack of color means they don’t necessarily make for the best representation of what the film will actually look like.
Today’s new Logan photo, on the other hand, is practically bursting with color by comparison. There are orange flames, green leaves, blue denim… and dark red blood, because in Logan, Wolverine is actually capable of getting hurt and injured. Click through to see the latest Logan photo. Read More »
Even before Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hit theaters this weekend, we knew that the future of what is now a five-film franchise would have a focus on the villainous plans of Gellert Grindelwald, played by Johnny Depp. This includes his conflict with Albus Dumbledore, who we know eventually stops him in 1945 thanks to the Harry Potter books.
As such, casting is underway to find an actor other than Michael Gambon to play Albus Dumbledore since the character is roughly 60 years younger in the Fantastic Beasts timeline than he is in the Harry Potter franchise. There haven’t been any names mentioned as being in talks for the role yet, so now that audiences are flocking to see Fantastic Beasts this weekend, we thought we’d propose some potential names for who should play young Albus Dumbledore in the future sequels. Find out who made our list after the jump. Read More »
