Hugh Jackman posts first Wolverine 3 teaser image

28 July 2015 12:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hugh Jackman has posted a picture on Twitter teasing the upcoming third Wolverine solo film, which will mark the actor’s final performance as the character.

The picture shows Wolverine holding up one claw, with “#OneLastTime” written next to him. See it here…

Jackman, who is undeniably the face of the X-Men film franchise, has popped up in either large or small roles in each X-Men film so far, from 2000’s X-Men to 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past

At this year’s Comic-Con, Jackman dropped a hint that Wolverine 3 may tell the popular Old Man Logan storyline from the comics, but nothing has been confirmed yet. 

Wolverine 3, which has still not received an official name, will be hitting theaters on March 3, 2017. The Wolverine director James Mangold will be returning to helm the film, while Patrick Stewart (Charles Xavier/Professor X) is rumored to appear alongside Jackman.

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Photo Shows Off Huge Egyptian Set

27 July 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production on X-Men: Apocalypse still going strong in Montreal, director Bryan Singer has shared yet another photo through his Instagram account, showcasing one of the massive practical sets. The filmmaker is seen being dwarfed by an Egyptian statue. But he wouldn't offer any details about the set itself or how it fits into the X-Men: Apocalypse story. He did say on his social media account that, "This takes me back to #raidersofthelostark #notallgreenscreen #xmen #xmenapocalypse."

This photo comes just a few days after Bryan Singer posted a photo with Sir Patrick Stewart on the set, which fueled speculation that he would return in a cameo role as Charles Xavier. The actor wasn't seen in costume, but he was watching footage with the director and another filmmaker, Jason Reitman, who was putting together a live read of The Big Lebowski at Montreal's Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. It was never »

Is Patrick Stewart in X-Men: Apocalypse after all?

27 July 2015 7:55 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

X-Men: Apocalypse has been billed as a new direction for the series without any appearance by 20th Century Fox's original cast - but if so, what was Sir Patrick Stewart doing on the set of Bryan Singer's next film?

The director posted an image of himself sitting with the Professor Xavier actor and filmmaker Jason Reitman on Instagram.

Trying to look intensely thoughtful, @sirpatstew and #jasonreitman visiting #xmen #apocalypse #xmenapocalypse set and reminiscing about our own #daysoffuturepast. Looking forward to "jasonreitmanlivereading tonight of #biglebowski with #michaelfassbender as "The Dude!"

Stewart is apparently in town to host a gala at the Just for Laughs comedy festival, but a cameo surely isn't beyond the realms of possibility.

Singer's caption also revealed that Michael Fassbender would be taking a break from filming Apocalypse to play Jeff Bridges's iconic »

Cyclops Is Lost, Angry In "X-Men: Apocalypse"

27 July 2015 7:34 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

An old mutant getting a fresh face in the upcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse" is that of Cyclops. James Marsden played the role in the original trilogy and returned for a cameo in last year's "X-Men: Days of Future Past".

In the new take though, it's Tye Sheridan taking on the part and he was asked by Indiewire how his version differs to that of previous iterations:

"It's quite similar actually. It's a nice progression with the roles I've played in the past. It's forced me to use everything I've learned playing all the characters I have. My character is angry and a bit lost, which I feel like is where I've met a lot of my characters -- in these sort of young life transitions where they're struggling to figure things out about themselves.

He's now learning about being a mutant and trying to handle his superhero powers. The arc for »

Was Captain Kirk a Republican? Shatner Says Nope

26 July 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Speaking with the New York Times last week, Ted Cruz went on a brief digression about Star Trek, opining that William Shatner’s Captain Kirk is better than Patrick Stewart’s Captain Picard because Kirk is, in Cruz's mind, a Republican. He cited Kirk’s purported working-class background as proof for his proclamation, calling Picard a “cerebral philosopher” (as opposed to those non-cerebral philosophers). Cruz's preference for Kirk probably has nothing at all to do with Sir Patrick Stewart's open support of gay rights and his amazing, life-affirming bromance with Sir Ian McKellen.William Shatner doesn’t agree. Shatner, surely the world's foremost expert on all things Captain Kirk, posted on Twitter: “Star Trek wasn’t political. I’m not political; I can’t even vote in the Us. So to put a geocentric label on interstellar characters is silly.” Of course, the late Gene Roddenberry might have disagreed »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Photo Welcomes Patrick Stewart to Set

25 July 2015 2:27 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yes, Patrick Stewart is confirmed to have arrived on the Montreal set of X-Men: Apocalypse this weekend. But don't get too excited. It doesn't look like he'll be appearing as Charles Xavier (aka Professor X) in any capacity. Instead, it simply looks like he is visiting his old director Bryan Singer. And it sounds like the pair are joining director Jason Reitman for one of his legendary live script reads. No, it's not a rendition of 2000's X-Men. The trio will be enjoying a live reading of the Coen Brothers' classic The Big Lebowski.

Back in January, Patrick Stewart confirmed that neither he nor Ian McKellen would be reprising their roles as Professor X and Magneto in X-Men: Apocalypse. The entirety of the film takes place in 1983, the same weekend Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi opened in theaters. There is no reason for the older versions »

Check Out Patrick Stewart On The X-Men: Apocalypse Set

25 July 2015 2:03 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In general, superhero movies are big into cameos and appearances from characters other than the main heroes. It.s not uncommon to see faces from other movies pop in for a quick visit. Last time we saw those fan favorite mutants the X-Men, in X-Men: Days of Future Past, there were multiple generations of Charles Xavier. And while we only expect to see one in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, James McAvoy.s version, the original, Patrick Stewart, recently stopped by the set. This doesn.t mean anything, but it.s still pretty cool.     Trying to look intensely thoughtful, @sirpatstew and #jasonreitman visiting #xmen #apocalypse #xmenapocalypse set and reminiscing about our own #daysoffuturepast.

Set Photo Teases Patrick Stewart on Set of ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

25 July 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Back in January this year, X-Men franchise star Patrick Stewart thought that neither he nor co-star Ian McKellen were going to be popping up in X-Men Apocalypse, with the focus on the 1983 versions of the mutants that were rebooted in X-Men: First Class and continued into X-Men: Days of Future Past. Now a new set […]

You'll never guess who just showed up on the set of 'X-Men Apocalypse'

24 July 2015 12:09 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Way back in January, people were already asking Patrick Stewart is there were plans to revise his role as the older and wiser incarnation of Professor Xavier in “X-Men Apocalypse.” And by people, I mean Larry King. During an interview with King, Stewart demurred on the topic: [I]t is going to be looking very much at the earlier lives of all our characters. [S]o I don’t think we’ll (Stewart and Magneto actor Ian McKellen) be making an appearance. That seemed to be that. “Apocalypse” would focus on the younger mutants set up by the “Days of Future Past” universe, leaving Stewart and McKellen to ride off into the Bff Shakespearean sunset together. But then This happened:   A photo posted by Bryan Singer (@bryanjaysinger) on Jul 24, 2015 at 11:17am Pdt   Oh sure Bryan Singer says Sir Patrick Stewart just stopped by the set to reminisce about his previous X-Men »

Everything we know about X-Men: Apocalypse and what's next for Fox's Marvel movies

24 July 2015 9:09 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

20th Century Fox essentially invented the modern superhero movie with 2000's X-Men, and is shaping up to increase its superhero output in the coming years.

The next major release in its X-Men series will be 2016's Apocalypse, sandwiched between two spinoff movies. And that's only the beginning of their plans.

Here's everything we know about X-Men: Apocalypse and Fox's other Marvel Comics movie plans:

X-Men: Apocalypse will hit UK cinemas on May 19, 2016 and May 27 in the Us.

New mutants for old

Bryan Singer is returning to the franchise for his fourth X-Men outing, which has been billed as the concluding chapter in a trilogy that began in X-Men: First Class and continued through Days of Future Past - although Singer has also called it "the true birth of the X-Men".

Contrary to some of the rumours flying around, as far as we know, the original cast members from back in the 2000s (Patrick Stewart, »

Starz Ending ‘DaVinci’s Demons’ After Third Season

23 July 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Starz has announced that season three will be the last for “DaVinci’s Demons,” creator David S. Goyer’s historical fantasy series that focuses a young and tormented Leonardo da Vinci during Renaissance-era Florence.

The final season, which will premiere at 8 p.m. on Oct. 24, shows da Vinci (played by Tom Riley) witnesses his personal inventions employed by Ottoman invaders during the battle of Otranto. John Shiban serves as showrunner. It is produced by Adjacent Productions.

“While ending Leonardo’s journey is bittersweet for me, I’m happy we’re ending the story on a high note. Leonardo was famous for his mirror-writing, and there’s a symmetry to the entire series — between the first episode and the final one — that I think the maestro would have appreciated,” said Goyer. “I want to thank our dedicated fans around the world for viewing and engaging with such passion.

Photo: See How Ant-man De-Aged Michael Douglas

22 July 2015 3:58 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

One of the most striking visual effects in Marvel's Ant-Man takes place at the very beginning of the movie, with Michael Douglas looking almost 30 years younger as Hank Pym. Given the veteran actor was actually 70 years old when he filmed the scene set in 1989, Marvel had recruited Lola VFX, the same company that shrunk Chris Evans' Steve Rogers on Captain America: The First Avenger and previously de-aged both Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian Mckellan years ago on X-Men: The Last Stand.  Speaking with Vulture, Lola visual effects supervisor Trent Claus explained how the studio worked with Marvel to achieve the flawless cosmetic effect. "They asked for advice for what they could do when they were shooting that could aid us, which is very much appreciated," he said. "We put our two cents in, and they did everything we needed right from the start." Claus also revealed that Douglas' past »

The Surprising Ways 'Mission: Impossible 2' Affected the Course of Movie History

21 July 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

When many of us think of Sir Ian McKellen, two iconic roles come to mind: Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings and Magneto in X-Men. And vice versa -- it's hard to imagine anyone else playing those characters on the big screen (well, Michael Fassbender also plays Magneto, very well, but we're talking the older version of the mutant villain). Those franchises could have easily been very different, though, as a result of very different actors filling the parts. Sean Connery was offered Gandalf, for instance, but he turned it down. So did Christopher Plummer. Same with McKellen's X-Men co-star and Bff, Patrick Stewart. Christopher Lee apparently campaigned for the role but was cast as Saruman instead. As for Magneto, the X-Men's foe could have been portrayed by Terence...

Taylor Swift Changes Controversial Concert Photography Policy

21 July 2015 3:27 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Taylor Swift has proven herself to be a pretty powerful agent of change (just ask Apple), and now the “1989” singer is showing that she’s capable of rethinking her own stances as well. Swift has chosen to revise the photography policy for her 1989 World Tour, after hearing the concerns of the National Press Photographers Association. Mickey H. Osterreicher, general counsel for the organization, said that the singer “should be commended” for her willingness to amend her policy, adding that the new agreement is “fair to everyone involved.” Also Read: Taylor Swift Calls Longtime Besties Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen 'Ultimate Squad. »

Watch Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart (Hilariously) Join Taylor Swift Squad

17 July 2015 7:35 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

No bad blood here -- it's all mad love!

Ian McKellen sat down with Yahoo to promote his new movie "Mr. Holmes," and what better way to do that than to read off lyrics to Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars songs? Because Sir Ian can make anything and everything sound important and *Dramatic* -- even when wearing some kind of floral print shirt and beads -- here he is reciting Taylor's "Bad Blood" and Bruno's "Uptown Funk":

There's something almost melancholy and wistful about his repetition of Bruno's "Don't believe me, just watch." He's imploring you. Come on.

But you know who wants in on this? Patrick Stewart. Skipping over Bruno Mars, Sir PatStew tweeted a very polite request to Taylor Swift to join her squad, citing his and Ian's qualifications:

So @IanMcKellen recited Bad Blood and I did Blank Space on @NPRAskMeAnother. May we join the squad, @taylorswift13? https://t. »
