Hugh Jackman Would Like Dafne Keen To Take Over As Wolverine

5 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Logan marked a historic end to an X-Men career that spanned nearly 20 years for both Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart.   While audiences loved the film it’s leaving studios with an interesting problem to solve:  “How do we continue with X-Men?”  Now that Jackman and Stewart are officially out as Logan and Charles Xavier what is the new crop going to look like?  It’s not as if Marvel is sitting on this either.  New movies and new characters are in development.  However, when it comes to the Wolverine franchise there’s still a gaping hole that’s gotta be filled.  If Hugh

14 hours ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

In the Old Man Logan comic, from which James Mangold‘s Logan borrowed a few ideas, Wolverine killed the X-Men. In a flashback, it’s revealed Mysterio played mind games on Logan and tricked him into killing his family of mutants. Mangold and his co-writers ultimately used the spirit of that scene for Professor Charles Xavier (Sir Patrick Stewart), not […]

The 20 Best TV Comedies of the 21st Century, Ranked

23 May 2017 9:07 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

A comedy on TV can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Some see the genre in its basest form: a show that makes us laugh. Others have expanded the definition (along with the Emmy rules) to include the drama-comedy hybrids, as long as they clock in at around half-an-hour. Still others find comedy in black humor or extra campy nighttime soaps.

But over the last few decades, what makes for great TV comedy has changed just as much as the genre itself. We’ve seen it all, and yet, there’s always something new right around the corner. So before we get too far along, let’s remember the best of what we’ve see so far, across the ever-changing landscape of television.

Logan Director Reflects On Decision To Cut Jean Grey From Wolverine’s Last Hurrah

23 May 2017 6:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Today marks a very special day for X-Men fans as 20th Century Fox is poised to unleash Logan, James Mangold’s lauded thriller that closed the book on Wolverine’s saga with style and grace, onto Blu-ray and DVD.

By all accounts, it’s been a relatively quick turnaround from the studio – remember, Logan first clawed its way into theaters back in March – and you’d be hard-pressed to find any Wolverine fan worth their salt that isn’t about to add Mangold’s R-rated masterclass to their Blu-ray collection. What’s more, the director has spent the past few days soliciting all sorts of questions pertaining to Hugh Jackman’s last hurrah in those adamantium claws, including the infamous Westchester incident and why he considers Logan‘s finale to be bittersweet.

When pulled together, James Mangold’s post-mortem makes for some interesting reading – if nothing else, it shows the »

Hugh Jackman reveals his two regrets from his time as Wolverine

21 May 2017 8:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having brought the curtain down on a 17 year spell as Wolverine this March with the release of the critically-acclaimed Logan, Hugh Jackman has been reflecting on his time as the fan favourite X-Man, revealing to Collider that he only has two regrets.

“There were a couple of things I couldn’t work out how to do,” said Jackman. “Fans always say, ‘When are we gonna see you in the blue and yellow spandex? We’ve gotta see that shot!’ We tried a little bit in The Wolverine, it didn’t happen—on that plane at the end he opens up a box and there’s the suit, I think that ended up getting cut. So the suit was one thing but we just couldn’t work out how to do it, so if anyone can work that out you go for it. The other idea that I always loved was »

James Mangold talks Logan’s “happy ending”, Hugh Jackman was reluctant to introduce X-24

19 May 2017 12:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning. Major Logan spoilers follow…

With this year’s Logan, director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman delivered a rather fantastic end to Jackman’s 15-year stint as the fan favourite mutant superhero Wolverine, culminating in an emotional climax where Logan makes the ultimate sacrifice in order to save his clone/daughter Laura and her young mutant friends from his other clone, X-24.

While lots of tears were shed over the final scenes, James Mangold has revealed to CinemaBlend that he doesn’t view the conclusion of the film as a downer – quite the opposite in fact, as he sees it as a happy ending given the suffering Wolverine has endured throughout his life.

“Something gets born of every tragedy. In many ways, I look at the movie and I realize what a happy ending it is. At least from the perspective of Wolverine’s character. I think, unlike anything »

Logan producer says casting a new Wolverine is “not something I can think about”

19 May 2017 7:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Logan was a beautiful swan song for Hugh Jackman, and the character that he has cultivated for over 15 years. His Wolverine is the most fully realized comic book character put on film, and it would be no small feat to replace him. How do you replace an actor who is so tied to a particular role?

Well, according to Logan producer Hutch Parker, maybe you don’t. Talking to CinemaBlend, the producer shared his feelings about picking a new actor to fill Hugh Jackman’s shoes:

“It’s a great question. Look, I think for all of us, at the moment, and for some of us it goes back to the very first time Hugh put on the costume. The idea of casting someone else as Wolverine is just not something I can think about. [Laughs] And I don’t know. There’s part of me that thinks that he’s »

The New ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Trailer Is Out of this World

18 May 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I’ll admit it.  I haven’t always been a “good nerd.”  Despite loving just about everything Sci-Fi – despite practically living off of the Sci-Fi channel back when it was actually called “the Sci-Fi Channel” – I have never been able to bring myself to care about Star Trek. While, like everybody else and their mother, I love the rebooted movies, the franchise’s original continuity was just something I could never get into.  When I was old enough to realize that Patrick Stewart was awesome, I tried getting into The Next Generation.  When the new movies came out, I tried getting

Michael Fassbender To Show Up In X-Men: Dark Phoenix?

17 May 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

What’s next for the franchise? How much longer can we expect folks from the old guard to stick around? That seems to be constant question X-Men fans have with their films. The initial group of actors that shepherded in the series — Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, and Ian McKellan — have likely all moved on form the series they started back in 2000, and now we’re all left wondering how much longer the second guard has to stick around.

On that list of actors are James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, and Jennifer Lawrence, the main stars of the secondary trilogy of the series. Jennifer Lawrence has seemed check out since X-Men: Apocalypse, so it’s no surprise that there’s little conversation surrounding her return. James McAvoy has always been game for continuing his portrayal of a younger Professor X. But what about Michael Fassbender as Magneto?

Is Logan Getting an X-23 Spin-Off?

17 May 2017 11:41 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last night, the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas held a one-night-only theatrical screening of Logan Noir, the black-and-white version of the R-rated blockbuster Logan, which coincides with yesterday's Digital HD release. Director James Mangold was on hand for a special live-stream Q&A session where the filmmaker was asked about the possibility of an X-23 spin-off, which would bring back Dafne Keen's fan favorite character. Here's what the filmmaker had to say during last night's Q&A session.

"Anything's possible. I've certainly talked to them about it. I even talked to them about it before we made the movie. I thought she was just such a great character, but with what Dafne did, I think that certainly that's possible."

While he wouldn't shed more light on this possible spin-off during the Q&A (courtesy of Coming Soon), this isn't the first time he's spoken about a possible X-23 spin-off. »

Logan director James Mangold teases Dafne Keen’s return as X-23

17 May 2017 11:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When it was released in March, James Mangold’s Logan received near unanimous praise for Hugh Jackman’s final outing as the clawed mutant and former X-Man Wolverine. However, the film’s big takeaway, and breakout star, was Dafne Keen’s performance as Laura/X-23. The young clone quickly became a fan-favourite character thanks to Keen, and there’s been a lot of speculation as to whether we’ll see her reprising the role for a future X-Men movie.

Last night at the Alamo Drafthouse, Fox and Mangold held a special screening of Logan Noir, the black and white version of the film, followed by a Q&A session with Mangold, Jackman and producer Hutch Parker. In the Q&A, Mangold was asked whether or not audiences would see Laura again and if Mangold would once again direct Keen should she return. While it wasn’t fully confirmed, Mangold said »

Hugh Jackman Talks About ‘Logan Noir,’ Wolverine, and Making Stephen Colbert Cry

17 May 2017 10:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While directing “Logan,” James Mangold took black-and-white photographs on set and posted them on Instagram and Twitter. Not only did the monochromatic imagery capture the classic Western feel of Hugh Jackman’s last film as Wolverine, but the positive fan response also inspired Mangold to create “Logan Noir,” a regraded black-and-white version of the film that will be showcased in its DVD/Blu-Ray release.

“[Hugh and I] both knew what we didn’t want,” said Mangold during a Q&A with Jackman following a one-night-only screening of “Logan Noir” at the Alamo Drafthouse in Brooklyn Tuesday night. “We were both coming from a pretty negative place. We [didn’t] want to make another one of those movies – meaning just another one of the assembly line [films]. We wanted to make something more human.”

It may be one of the most conceptually baffling films ever to be put into production, but The Emoji Movie is on its way to joining Battleship and The Lego Movie as the flimsiest excuse yet for a major motion picture. A teaser trailer has already been released, with a brief glimpse of a poo emoji voiced by Patrick Stewart, but now a full-length trailer has been released.
