Director James Mangold just posted a new photo on his Twitter page, giving us a look at a shirtless Hugh Jackman and Hiroyuki Sanada in "The Wolverine" fight scene. Check it out below. Plot: The story, which takes place after "X-Men: The Last Stand," finds Logan (Jackman) in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed. The new movie is set to hit theaters on July 26th. Photo: (click to enlarge) Click here to read more about "The Wolverine." »
We knew that “X-Men: Days of Future Past” would be hopping between different time periods due to the nature of the story, but we didn’t know what those time periods would be. Well, we still don’t entirely (will the present-day stuff be pre or post “X-Men: The Last Stand”?), but we now know for certain that at least some of the film will be set in the ‘70s thanks to a new tweeted pic of a young Beast and age-unknown Wolverine together. It’s a pretty cool image and the ‘70s costumes look pretty great…although of course Logan’s still sporting that timeless jacket of his. This thing could still be an unwieldy mess, but we can’t help but be impressed by what Singer’s shown us so far.

We have already seen how a 1970's Professor X looks in X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and now Bryan Singer has tweeted another behind the scenes look at the movie, showing Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult), circa 1973. This raises some interesting questions about the events of the movie, since the last time we saw Beast he was a lot more blue, furry, and cat like. We have seen make up tests showing a Beast which is more in keeping with X-Men: The Last Stand's portrayal of the character, so does he revert back to his human look, only to mutate even further? Because that is just mean. Released: July 18th 2014 »

As much as we love Iron Man and The Avengers, the one superhero team we're most looking forward to seeing back on the big screen is The X-Men."X-Men: Days of Future Past" is currently filming, and director Bryan Singer has been leaking photos from the set, including a shot today of the Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman."Welcome to 1973. @RealHughJackman @NicholasHoult #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast," Singer tweeted, confirming the clawed mutant will be in the film (hopefully more than his brief cameo in "X-Men: First Class").Fans will recognize Nicholas Hoult as Beast, who is back to his human form."Days of Future Past" includes the cast from "First Class," including Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence. James McAvoy returns as Charles Xavier, who's lost use of his legs (after getting shot in the last film) but not lost his hair ... yet. In fact, McAvoy sports wild hippie hair.The film also includes the "younger »

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb:
Most UK film sites have released articles this week discussing Lucasfilm's decision to film Star Wars: Episode VII in the UK. Russ Fischer over at /Film decided to focus on a different part of the story...
"The news that Star Wars: Episode VII will shoot in the UK isn’t a big deal, as the series has always had a production home in Britain. But in announcing plans to film the new Episode at one of the UK’s major studios (which one is not specified), LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy has issued a statement that some fans might find promising. Specifically, she says that the origins of Star Wars have been a big inspiration on the new film."

Fischer assumes that this “origin” focus can only be good news for Star Wars fans as it means that »

Pregnancy at 46 certainly isn't slowing down Halle Berry! Halle put her growing baby bump on display in a tight workout outfit today while running errands in La. Following her morning workout, Halle was later joined by her daughter, Nahla Aubry. The actress is expecting her second child, her first with fiancé Olivier Martinez, and announced her pregnancy last month while promoting her thriller The Call. Halle is also working through her pregnancy, since she is currently reprising her role as Storm for X-Men: Days of Future Past. The upcoming movie centers around time travel and alternate dimensions, which is fitting since director Bryan Singer is bringing together the casts from the two originals, X-Men: The Last Stand, and X-Men: First Class. In turn, Halle will share the big screen with former costars Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, and Patrick Stewart as well as Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence. The third installation »

Here’s Singer’s Tweet:
“Shooting native 3D and Simul-cam…Looks like friggin mission control.”
That film stars Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Daniel Cudmore, Adan Canto, and Fan Bingbing. It’s opening July 18th, 2014.
Now to The Wolverine, which we’ll be seeing a lot sooner. This July 26th, in fact. Ever since we saw the teaser, we knew that Famke Janssen’s Jean Grey would appear in the film, but it was unsure how or in what capacity, as she died in X3, and The Wolverine takes place after those events.
Janssen sheds the light on it, a »

It’s long been said that comic books serve as modern mythology, but if Hollywood’s recent fascination with Hercules is any indication, traditional mythology may be making a full-on comeback.
We’ve known for a while that directors Brett Ratner (X-men: The Last Stand) and Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2) are both delivering their own versions of the Greek demigod. Ratner’s film – based on the Hercules: The Thracian War comic book – has undoubtedly received more attention, given the notoriety of star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
However, Harlin’s film, dubbed Hercules 3D, has slowly picked up steam. That project recently secured Twilight star Kellan Lutz as its lead, and now – speaking to Crave Online – Lutz discusses how his take on the iconic character will differ from Johnson’s version. Here’s what ...

With Robert Downey Jr.'s contract renegotiations off to a start (not to mention every other Avenger as well... yikes!), a lot of talk is being made of just how integral Downey is to the Marvel franchise. To be honest, you're not going to get any argument about that here. Downey's commitment to the role, natural charisma, and superb acting chops all coalesced in 2008 to form the biggest surprise hero hit ever. Thanks to "Iron Man," the armored Avenger rocketed from Marvel's B-list all the way to the top. The guy is irreplaceable.
But is he the most successful superhero actor ever? To find out, I spent a lot of time on Box Office Mojo pulling data and making spreadsheets. I compiled a list of the top 10 most successful superhero actors, based on box office totals. There were a few requirements though:

There are two "Hercules" films currently in the works, one with Dwayne Johnson and director Brett Ratner (X-Men: The Last Stand), and the other with Kellan Lutz and director Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2). In a new interview, Lutz explained how his movie will be different. "I love The Rock. I grew up watching wrestling. He's such a great actor. I wish them the best. They have a great cast but the story is completely different," he explained. "[Their Hercules is] much older and our Hercules is the man's journey from being a boy to [becoming] a man, and it's very real and human." Lutz continued: "Our character goes through being love-struck and then heartbroken and then anguish and loneliness, sadness and remorse. It's really a story about a man and the journey to get back to his love. So it's not [about] a man with super powers. It's the story of what a normal »
A NewsWeek journalist was taking a flight to Montreal, and on his plane he spotted Halle Berry sitting next to James Marsden. Montreal is the location of the "X-Men: Days of Future Past" shoot, which means that Marsden will be reprising his Cyclops role in the film. Cyclops seemingly died in "X-Men: The Last Stand," along with Professor X (Patrick Stewart). But since "Days of Future Past" includes time-travel, director Bryan Singer previously said that he'll use that to "correct a few things." The problem is that Singer already posted a set photo showing two wheelchairs that will be used by the young (James McAvoy) and old (Stewart) Professor Xs. But in "X-Men: The Last Stand," Professor X transferred his mind into the body of his brain-dead twin brother. So why is older Professor X in the wheelchair again? Adding Cyclops to the story, makes it that much more difficult »
Director James Mangold previously said that "The Wolverine" takes place after "X-Men: The Last Stand," in which Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) died. But we already know that Janssen will appear in "The Wolverine" and the actress has now revealed how that will happen. Spoilers Ahead: "I couldn't tell you [how much I'm in the film]," she said. "It's a flashback sequence, that's all I can say." Meanwhile, several witnesses have contacted JoBlo with news that "The Wolverine" shot a new sequence that will likely end up being a post-credits scene. The shoot took place at Montreal and features Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Professor X (Patrick Stewart) walking into an airport. Professor X also died in "X-Men: The Last Stand," but transferred his mind into the body of his braindead twin brother. That likely explains why Professor X was walking and not in a wheelchair. It's also believed that the scene is meant to set up Bryan Singer »
According to people over at JoBlo, a small re-shoot for The Wolverine occured on Sunday in Montreal. According to their source, a short scene was being filmed (potentially for a post-credits scene like it often happens in Marvel’s films), that shows Hugh Jackman as Logan entering an airport and being greeted by Patrick Stewart as Professor Xavier. Now, this would be so cool if it turns out to be true, but it also raises so many questions, one of which is the fact that The Wolverine has long been confirmed to take place after the events of X-Men: The Last Stand, and if you remember,...

As is the case with big blockbuster franchises, characters dip in and out of films, pop up for the occasional cameo and stick around long after the credits. Today, rumours are circulating that indicate a specific X-Men stalwart is to appear in The Wolverine. When it was revealed Famke Janssen would take up her role as Jean Grey in James Mangold’s latest Wolvie outing, storms settled and fans assumed that was the extent of the cameo-araderie. It would appear this is not the case.
Spoiler Alert: Over at JoBlo, reports blustered in over a re-shoot for The Wolverine which took place in Montreal recently. The site announced that the scene took place in an airport, and featured Logan (Hugh Jackman) being greeted by Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart.) No other details were added so at this point, everything is pure speculation.
From what we know about the chronology of the films, »

The Wolverine just finished reshoots this past Sunday, but don't worry. This is no indication that the film is in any kind of trouble. These pick-up shots were actually for a new scene being added to the movie as a potential end credits stinger. And a source close to the production has revealed that an old friend was on set for the proceedings.
Warning! Major Spoilers! lie ahead.
The reshoot consisted of one scene, set at an airport. There, Logan meets up with Professor Xavier, a role being reprised by franchise favorite Patrick Stewart. This reshoot does not affect the release date of the film, and is reportedly being added as a post credits cookie, much like we've seen done in the Marvel Phase One and Two films.
The scene in question finds Wolverine and Xavier meeting at a terminal, with the action going into a freeze frame. The Wolverine »
20th Century Fox has reportedly filmed an extra scene for The Wolverine featuring a cameo from the previous X-Men films.
Sir Patrick Stewart has been rumoured by JoBlo to appear as Professor Charles Xavier in what may be a post-credits scene.
The forthcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past could also offer an explanation with its time travel storyline.
The Wolverine will open on July 26. Watch a »
JoBlo has reported that a brief re-shoot – or should we say, additional shoot – has taken place in Montreal for James Mangold’s upcoming re-do of The Wolverine. If their sources are to be believed, the scene is likely to be a post-credits stinger, featuring none other than Patrick Stewart’s Professor Charles Xavier himself.
The scene was filmed at an airport and reportedly shows Logan (Hugh Jackman) meeting Xavier, who was walking in the scene and did not require his iconic wheelchair. This would actually make sense considering that The Wolverine is set after X-Men: The Last Stand, when Xavier died, though as anyone who stuck around for that film’s post-credits scene saw, he managed to transfer his consciousness somehow into the body of a comatose patient.

With "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" stacked to the rafters with pretty much every mutant they can squeeze into the thing, this summer's "The Wolverine" is looking pretty quaint. Oh sure, we'll get Viper, Silver Samurai and Jean Grey (probably), but those few barely even begin to scratch the sheer volume of players Bryan Singer is bringing to the table. Perhaps not be outdone, and to possibly try and ape Marvel's comic world building, it would appear that another face will be popping up as a late addition to "The Wolverine," and duh, spoilers below. According to sources speaking to JoBlo, a late reshoot has added Professor X in a quick airport scene with Logan. Now, a couple of interesting red flags to throw up here, the biggest of which is this: with "The Wolverine" apparently set after "X-Men: The Last Stand," shouldn't Professor X be dead? It's also not »

We got our first glimpse at the late Jean Grey in the teaser for The Wolverine two months ago . Since then we've heard little about her appearance in the upcoming film. Given that The Wolverine takes place after the events of X-Men: The Last Stand , and since Jean Grey died (again) in that film, there is really only one possible way that she returns - in a flashback. Famke Janssen spoke with WhatCulture about her cameo and confirmed the nature of her appearance. "I couldn.t tell you [how much I.m in it]. It.s a flashback sequence, but that.s all I can say. You.ll just have to wait until July!" Janssen isn't the only character that could appear in the movie, check out this article from earlier today about a possible »
JoBlo reveals that additional scenes for The Wolverine were being filmed in Montreal on Sunday and it appears as if Professor X will be making a cameo appearance in the X-Men: The Last Stand sequel. Their sources tell them that it took place at an airport and sounds, "like it appears at the end of the movie, possibly when Wolverine returns from Japan." Considering the fact that Xavier dies in the Brett Ratner helmed movie, how exactly Patrick Stewart appears in both this and X-Men: Days of Future Past is unclear, although a popular guess is that he will simply use his psychic powers to make the comatose body he inhabited appear to others as his former self. Regardless, here's their description of the scene that was filmed. What do you guys think? So according to our source, the airport scene involves Wolverine....and Professor X. The new scene has »
