20 Mind-Blowing Facts You Didn’t Know About Wolverine

2 March 2015 4:23 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Despite not being one of the classic Marvel characters created by the likes of Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, and Jack Kirby in the 1960s, Wolverine is still considered one of their best superheroes and is easily as big a fan-favourite as Spider-Man and The Avengers.

It’s not hard to see why that is either. The gruff X-Men character is like a comic book version of Clint Eastwood, and his adventures – which are usually much more violent than those of Captain America and Daredevil for example – have been keeping Marvel fans hooked for decades now. Whether it’s in his classic blue and yellow costume, a vest and jeans, or any other variation worn since his first appearance in 1974, Wolverine is a Marvel mainstay.

However, with a history which goes back as far as the 19th Century, there’s a lot than even the most devoted fan may »

While the cast for director Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse continues to take shape, the filmmaker has brought on composer John Ottman to work on the score.

Evan Peters on 'Lazarus Effect,' 'Age of Ultron,' and What He Won't Do in His Next Movie (Exclusive)

26 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Evan Peters knows a thing or two about scaring you silly.

Peters has been a regular cast member of "American Horror Story" since it's groundbreaking first season, playing (in short order) a high school psychopath, an insane asylum inmate (who had a close encounter with extraterrestrials, mutants, and a serial killer), a frat-boy Frankenstein monster, and, most recently, a freak-show performer with lobster claws for hands. Scary right?

Well in this week's "The Lazarus Effect," the latest production by "Paranormal Activity" and "Insidious" mastermind Jason Blum, Peters is back in the oogey-boogey business, this time playing a grad student who is working, along with Olivia Wilde, Mark Duplass, and Donald Glover, on a top secret project that could bring people back from the dead. What could go wrong, right? Riiiiiight.

We recently spoke to Peters about what he finds so appealing about the horror genre, whether or not he'll be »

How much control do Marvel have over Spider-Man?

26 February 2015 3:05 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When the deal was announced that Marvel and Sony had come to a terms for Spider-Man to appear in their movies and kick off another reboot to the series in 2017, it was thought that Sony would have full creative control over the character and his direction.

With Amy Pascal stepping down from her seat of control, comic book movie fans were concerned when Tom Rothman took her place. Rothman is notorious for hating comic book movies when he working at 20th Century Fox and was the biggest blockade against a Deadpool movie being made, as well as banning Sentinals from appearing in any X-Men movies. He also micro-managed X-Men Origins: Wolverine to the point where he had the sets re-painted without telling director Gavin Hood. Many believe that Rothman is the reason why Marvel and Fox have an unhealthy relationship.

The Black Vortex mixes things up in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ #24

23 February 2015 4:58 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Guardians of the Galaxy #24

Written by Brian Michael Bendis

Pencils by Valerio Schiti

Colors by Jason Keith

Published by Marvel Comics

After an extended introductory issue, Marvel’s “Black Vortex” event dives right into the cosmic fray with Guardians of the Galaxy. After securing the Vortex, the Guardians and the X-Men get a moment to decide what to do with the artifact. But with a rift forming between them, can the heroes get their act together before their enemies catch up with them?

c

One of the biggest flaws with the issue, and the series thus far, is the sheer number of characters in play. While some characters naturally rise to the forefront, many characters, such as Agent Venom, Captain Marvel, and others, are reduced to bit players, given nothing more to do than stand in the background and remind us of their presence. It’s understandable that the focus »

'Deadpool' Will Feature 'X-Men' Character Colossus

13 February 2015 2:26 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Buried within The Hollywood Reporter's story from earlier today, which revealed that Gina Carano is playing Angel Dust in Deadpool, was an intriguing tidbit that X-Men character Colossus is also slated to appear in the movie. Unfortunately, no further details were given as to how he fits into the plot, but a report from October revealed that Deadpool is a part of the X-Men franchise, so it would make sense that characters such as Colossus will be present.

Daniel Cudmore played Colossus in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past, but it wasn't said if the actor is reprising his role, or if another actor will take over for this project. What's also interesting is that Colossus wasn't featured in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which served as the first appearance of Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool, a.k.a. The Merc With the Mouth. »

How Marvel went from bankruptcy to billions

12 February 2015 9:17 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In less than 20 years, Marvel has risen from bankruptcy to multi-billion-dollar business. Ryan charts its rise and rise...

Just about every great comic book story has a darkest hour moment: a point in the tale where all seems lost. The heroes are on their knees, the city's a smouldering ruin and the villains are closing in for the kill. For Marvel, its darkest hour came in the winter of 1996.

A company that had grown in stature throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s thanks to the often stunning art and storytelling in such comics as Fantastic Four and The Amazing Spider-Man, Marvel's financial success had reached a peak by the early 90s. But then a series of bursting financial bubbles and questionable business deals saw Marvel's stock value collapse; shares once worth $35.75 each in 1993 had sunk to $2.375 three years later. An ugly fight between a group of very rich investors followed, »

Does Hugh Jackman believe Wolverine can join the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

11 February 2015 2:26 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New York - Monday night's announcement that Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios had come to an agreement to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (aka the "Avengers" Universe) set Hollywood and movie fans into a tizzy over the possibilities.  Spider-Man had been, effectively, on his own island since Sony controlled the big screen rights to the Web Slinger.  Now, he can join his fellow "Avengers" in whatever cinematic adventures that might bring. What many fans might not realize is that Spider-Man has only been an Avenger in the Marvel Comic Book Universe for about 10 years.  Moreover, Spidey wasn't the only big name to join these "new" Avengers at the time.  The Avengers also brought a major mutant force, Wolverine, into the fold.  Everyone's favorite "X-Men" member is part of a third Marvel Mutant Universe controlled by 20th Century Fox.  The chances of Fox making a deal with Marvel Studios »

If you take a look at the top 100 all-time highest worldwide grossing movies, fifteen of them are either Marvel or DC comic adaptations. According to Box Office Mojo the third highest grossing film of all time is The Avengers (2012) at over a billion and a half dollars. Comics, it would seem, are major players in the world of entertainment.

Seventy-five years ago it was all very different. Comics were for children and were disregarded as both an entertainment medium and as an art form. Comics were disposable. Because of their ephemeral nature surviving early copies now trade hands for vast sums. »

Why Sony Called in Marvel’s Big Gun to Reboot ‘Spider-Man’

9 February 2015 11:07 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After Sony attempted to reboot its “Spider-Man” franchise with Andrew Garfield as the web slinger, the studio is ready to give it a third try, this time with Kevin Feige, the man who has produced 10 consecutive blockbusters for Marvel Studios.

A deal to free up Spider-Man to appear in the Marvel cinematic universe, starting in 2017, is a clear admission by Sony that its superhero strategy with one of the most popular comicbook heroes around simply isn’t working.

That’s especially true at a time when the studio is desperate for some major film franchises. Struggling with one of the comicbook industry’s most popular superheroes was starting to get embarrassing — especially when “Guardians of the Galaxy,” starring a cast of misfits unknown to most moviegoers, broke out as a bigger hit in 2014 than the last “Spider-Man” movie when it made $774 million. “The Amazing Spider Man 2″ earned nearly $709 million worldwide. »

Marvel's "Gambit" Release Date

1 February 2015 1:20 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek the comic book origins of Marvel Comics' mutant superhero 'Gambit', on the news that a "Gambit" solo movie starring actor Channing Tatum has been given an official Fox theatrical release date:

The new "Gambit" solo feature will be released October 7, 2016.

Created by writer Chris Claremont and illustrator Jim Lee, the character debuted in Marvel's "Uncanny X-Men Annual" #14 (1990), followed by "Uncanny X-Men" #266 (August 1990).

A mutant, Gambit can mentally create, control and manipulate pure kinetic energy. He is also incredibly skilled in card-throwing, hand-to-hand combat and the use of a bō.

Originally a professional thief, Gambit has shown a more vulnerable side of himself with the mutant 'Rogue'. Proud of his Louisiana heritage, he speaks in a thick Cajun accent.

Though he did not appear in the first three "X-Men" films, Gambit appeared on screen in the 2009 feature "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", portrayed by Taylor Kitsch.

'Deadpool' Targets T.J. Miller and Ed Skrein

6 January 2015 1:15 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now that Ryan Reynolds has been officially confirmed to return as Deadpool, with production set to begin in March, 20th Century Fox is filling out the supporting roles, with actors T.J. Miller and Ed Skrein both in talks to join the cast. The Wrap reports that T.J. Miller will provide, "an additional comic voice to compliment Deadpool," although his exact character was not specified. Ed Skrein is said to be further along in negotiations than T.J. Miller, with the site speculating that he could be eyed for the villain.

Ryan Reynolds originally played Deadpool in the 2009 superhero prequel X-Men Origins: Wolverine, with talk of a spin-off featuring the "Merc With a Mouth" surfacing shortly thereafter. Following years of development, test footage shot by director Tim Miller leaked back in July, which was received with enormous support from the fans, leading to 20th Century Fox announcing a 2016 release back in September. »
