As we all know by now, Wolverine 3 is going to be the last time Hugh Jackman steps into the shoes of the adamantium-clawed mutant who has become the crux of the X-Men franchise. He’s supposed to pop up in X-Men: Apocalypse before that, and there have been rumblings that he might have a cameo in Deadpool early next year too.
But sadly, fans will have to accept that sometime in the near future, Hugh Jackman will no longer be Wolverine. However, since the character doesn’t age the same as everyone else, he doesn’t have to be killed off. Jackman could merely be replaced by someone younger than him (though not too much younger), and the Australian actor would like to see Inception and The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy as Wolverine next.
Update from editor Peter Sciretta: Bosslogic created a cool mock-up of what Tom Hardy might look like as Wolverine. See the piece of fan art after the jump followed by Ethan’s original story from September 24th 2015.

Over the past year, Marvel Studios has plucked the Inhumans from relative obscurity to give them prime placement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only are they getting their own feature film in 2019, they’re the subject of a major ongoing arc on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Essentially, they serve as a stand-in for the X-Men, since 20th Century Fox still holds the rights to Marvel’s mutant roster.
But replacing the X-Men with Inhumans in the movies and TV shows is one thing; now, that offscreen rivalry appears to be spilling over into the comics. Previews of the upcoming Extraordinary X-Men #1 tease a storyline in which the Inhumans’ expansion is literally killing the X-Men. More about the Inhumans killing X-Men after the jump. Read More »
Since we’ve had two releases from Marvel Studios this year, there’s been plenty of talk about ranking the movies in the Marvel cinematic universe. But with 20th Century Fox’s reboot of Fantastic Four hitting theaters this weekend (for better or worse), we thought it was a good time to rank all the Marvel movies that exist outside of the MCU, which include Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, all the X-Men films and more.

In an exciting meshing of old and new franchise stars, X-Men: Days of Future Past effectively rebooted the comic book franchise again, complete with a new timeline that retconned the old one, and brought all your favorite characters who died in the original trilogy back from the dead.
And while the title and basic storyline is lifted directly from a Marvel story arc in the mutant comic book series, there are a significant number of differences between the comic book and the movie, and we’re not just talking little nitpick details here and there. For example, perhaps the biggest change is sending Wolverine back in time in the movie instead of the time-traveler being Kitty Pryde as it is in the comics.
