Wolverine 3 has been operating under a shroud of secrecy. We know it’ll bring back Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Patrick Stewart as Professor X, and that it’ll loosely be based on Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s Old Man Logan storyline. But even as the cast continues to grow — with Fear the Walking Dead and Orange Is the New Black star Elizabeth Rodriguez as its latest exciting addition — we haven’t heard a whole lot about which characters these actors will be playing.
We may, however, finally have some clue as to whom Wolverine will be going up against, thanks to X-Men: Apocalypse. Although the film won’t open in the U.S. for another week, word from overseas is that the end-credits scenes may hold some key information about the villain of Wolverine 3. Obviously, SPOILERS for X-Men: Apocalypse follow. Read More »

The on-again, off-again development process for Fox’s X-Force movie seems to be back on again. X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer has revealed that the X-Men spinoff is still in the works, with Simon Kinberg already hard at work on the script. And what’s more, that it may feature the fan-favorite comic book character X-23, essentially a female clone of Wolverine. Read More »
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.

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 »

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 »

Which means that they’re gonna need a worthy villain to go up against.
