This week has been chock full of updates regarding Wolverine 3. After Hugh Jackman promised a reveal regarding the X-Men spin-off sequel earlier this week, we got a teaser poster with an official title and some intriguing plot details. The film is called Logan, and it will see the mutant known as Wolverine aged, not healing as quickly or efficiently as he used to, and he’s drinking all the time. In addition, we heard that he’s been taking care of an aging Professor X, whose powers have become unstable as well.
To follow up those details, we now have our first official look at Patrick Stewart as Professor X in a new Logan photo. It’s clear he’s not doing well in the year 2024, and he might even be losing his sight. Read More »

Earlier today we finally learned the title of Hugh Jackman‘s next and last Wolverine movie: Logan. So with that out of the way, let’s dig into some of the finer details.
The first Logan poster offered a few intriguing clues about the plot of the film, from the scars and scratches on Wolverine’s arm to the tiny (yet freakishly long-fingered) hand gripping his. Now a new report reveals new info about the futuristic setting of the film, Logan’s status as the story begins, the identity of the child whose hand is seen in the poster, and more. Get the latest Logan details below. (Note: while there don’t seem to be any major spoilers here, those who prefer to know as little as possible may want to steer clear.) Read More »

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.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
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.
