In a world where every studio is trying to build its own comic book mega-franchise, simple sequels and prequels aren’t enough anymore. To really keep the brand running, you need spinoffs. And that’s where Fox’s X-Men series could be headed next.
So far, Wolverine is the only mutant who’s had the opportunity to break out on his own, but in a recent chat producers Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg suggested that Gambit, Deadpool, and Mystique could get their own movies as well. Hit the jump to read their comments.

Among the films was also a “Mystery Marvel Movie” on July 13, 2018 and a “Untitled Ridley Scott” film on March 4, 2016. Below, we’ll give you a few options of what each of those might be. Read More »

Of all the actors who’ve made their name playing comic book superheroes, Hugh Jackman has stuck with his role the longest. During his now fourteen-year tenure as Wolverine, we’ve gone through two Spider-Men, two Supermen, and two entirely different sets of (non-Wolverine) X-Men.
However, there’s only so long a mortal man can play an ageless mutant, and Jackman is well aware of that fact. In a recent interview, the actor said that although he hadn’t tired of the character yet, it was “inevitable” that Wolverine would be recast someday. Hit the jump to get his thoughts.
Most of Jackman’s co-stars from the original X-Men trilogy were replaced in X-Men: First Class by younger actors. Jackman, as the ageless Wolverine, was the exception. But that doesn’t mean recasting was never a possibility, he cautions.

That X-Men: Days of Future Past is getting a sequel isn’t much of a surprise, but Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Apocalpyse announcement coming months before Days of Future Past even opened did. We’re not complaining, though — that just gives us more time to brush up on the source material.
While Apocalypse is one of the X-Men’s better known adversaries, he’s racked up so much story and backstory since his introduction in 1986 that even savvy comic book readers may need a refresher. Fortunately, we’ve found a five-minute video that offers just that. Sure, you could get most of the same info by wading through Apocalypse’s 7,000-word page on Wikipedia, but… I’ve tried, and trust me, this way is a lot more fun. Watch it after the jump.

In the era of The Avengers, Batman vs. Superman and X-Men: Days of Future Past, comic book movies have begun to look more like comic books. Multiple movies featuring multiple characters all take place in the same universe, making crossovers possible. There are, unfortunately, some crossovers that are currently impossible because various studios own the rights to major characters. Spider-Man, for example, is at Sony, while the X-Men and Fantastic Four are at 20th Century Fox. That makes crossover with the Marvel Studios characters legally difficult.
According to Hugh Jackman, those barriers almost broke down in 2002. A few short years after Bryan Singer’s original X-Men, then lower level Marvel producer Kevin Feige suggested Wolverine cameo in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man. Jackman even traveled to the city, but something stopped it from happening. Read More »
