Stephen Merchant in Hello Ladies

It’s a given that Wolverine 3 will bring back Hugh Jackman as the eponymous superhero, and we heard long ago that Patrick Stewart would return as Professor X, too. But as the film nears the start of shooting, it’s collecting quite an eclectic cast around the two familiar X-Men. First Boyd Holbrook and Richard E. Grant signed on as a pair of villains, and now Stephen Merchant — the gangly British comedian you might recognize from The Office — has been set to star as well.  Read More »

Rumor: ‘Wolverine 3’ to Introduce X-23?

X-23

Wolverine 3 will be the final hurrah for X-Men star Hugh Jackman, who’s been playing the mutant superhero since 2000. He’s already survived through five X-Men movies and two solo spinoff, and logged time with both the original cast and their younger counterparts. Now Jackman wants to hang up the claws, and his Wolverine certainly deserves to ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after.

But while Wolverine 3 marks an end for Jackman’s version of the character, it’ll be a brand-new beginning for another mutant. Rumor has it Wolverine 3 will mark the big-screen debut of X-23, a popular comic book character who’s got more than a few things in common with the cantankerous Canadian himself.  Read More »

Boyd Holbrook in Little Accidents

Hugh Jackman‘s time as everyone’s favorite cranky Canadian mutant will come to an end next year with Wolverine 3, and after nearly two decades he and the character deserve to go out with a bang. Which means that they’re gonna need a worthy villain to go up against. And as of right now, Narcos actor Boyd Holbrook has entered talks to be the poor evil fool who’ll probably get shish kebab-ed on those adamantium claws.

X-Men Origins Wolverine

And there might an old friend there to help send him off. Liev Schreiber has confirmed he’s had talks about reprising his role as Sabretooth for the new movie, which is being directed by James Mangold. Patrick Stewart is also expected to return as Professor X.  Read More »

Wolverine 3 R-Rated

Just a few days after Deadpool stormed the box office with unexpected record-breaking numbers, rumblings surfaced that 20th Century Fox was considering going for an R-rated comic book sequel for the developing Wolverine 3. It seemed like a knee-jerk reaction at the time, but not one that fans were going to complain about. Who doesn’t want to see Wolverine get some blood on his claws? But it turns out that Deadpool might not have been much of a factor in that decision by the studio. Find out more below. Read More »

the wolverine 3

Deadpool‘s $132 million opening would have been impressive under any circumstances, but it was especially noteworthy given the film’s R rating. The conventional wisdom has been that PG-13 is the way to go if you want to make lots of money, because an R rating, by its very nature, excludes a sizable chunk of the potential audience. But not only did the R rating not hurt Deadpool, it seemed to actually help. It signaled to moviegoers that this wasn’t going to be just another bland, safe comic book adaptation, and they turned out in droves to see what it would be.

Naturally, Hollywood has taken notice. For the past several days, the question has been whether Deadpool could spark a whole new wave of R-rated superhero movies. And while it’s too early to tell, it seems like 20th Century Fox, at least, is ready to take the plunge again. Rumor has it the studio is considering an R rating for the upcoming Wolverine movie, to be directed by James Mangold and star Hugh JackmanRead More »
