Hugh Jackman rejects possibility of a Wolverine/Deadpool team-up, is ready to see another actor as Logan

1 hour ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the much anticipated arrival of the latest X-Men film, Logan, only a short time away, and with reviews for the Wolverine spin-off being rather impressive, talk about Fox’s two favourite R-rated heroes Wolverine and Deadpool teaming up has once again has ramped up.

It seems like it would be a sure thing for the studio, with the tepid response to X-Men: Apocalypse perhaps keeping events smaller and focusing on arguably the franchises’ two most successful characters is a good idea.

Hugh Jackman however disagrees and is adamant that Logan is his last hurrah as Wolverine.  He spoke about his opposition to the possibility in a Facebook Live interview, answering the team up question as follows:

“No, and Ryan Reynolds is currently sleeping outside my house. [Laughs] Look, if that movie had appeared 10 years ago, probably a different story, but I knew two and a half years ago that this was the last one. »

Logan director “would be shocked” if we don’t see X-23 again

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The director of Logan, James Mangold, has said he would be shocked if Fox didn’t pursue X-23 in the future.

Coming off the back off some incredibly stellar reviews, especially for a Wolverine film, the more grounded take on the infamous X-Men character is generating a lot of buzz.

Not only is Logan being well received, but the film’s R rating combined with some wonderful trailers have got fans excited for the movie’s potential. Good will has been garnered.

Aside from being the last Wolverine performance of actor Hugh Jackman, the film contains other characters worthy of our interest. One of the reported stand outs is the character X-23, played by Dafne Keen, and director of the film James Mangold has said in a Facebook live Q&A that he would be shocked if we don’t see her again.

“Expect is a big word. I think »

James Mangold rules out Logan post-credits scene

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week we reported that although Logan did not have a post-credits scene for various press screenings around the world, Collider claimed that there would “100%” be such a scene for the film’s theatrical release, seeing as Fox had extended the run time by three minutes for its release.

Well, director James Mangold has officially debunked that report, revealing that there will Not be a post-credit scene attached to Logan:

@borbs There is not a post credits scene.

— Mangold (@mang0ld) February 21, 2017

As a follow on, Collider is now stating that the movie may actually have an additional scene before the film even begins: “After doing some digging I’ve learned I wasn’t altogether wrong about Logan having something cool for the fans. But instead of it being after the credits, maybe it’s before the movie has started…”

Having seen Logan, it would definitely be extremely difficult »

Logan Director James Mangold On Why Wolverine Wearing His Yellow Outfit Is A Big No-No

23 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Superhero outfits have had an interesting history on the big screen. In some cases, like Superman or Spider-Man, the filmmakers opted to give him a look pretty close to what we see in the comic books. There are some heroes, however, who haven’t always resembled their comic book counterpart all too well — especially in the ensemble department. If you look at the original X-Men film back in 2000, for example, those dudes looked like they were pulled straight out of The Matrix. Leather outfits? That just screams cool, doesn’t it? They even went so far as to make fun of Wolverine’s trademark yellow spandex.

Yet ironically enough, in the time since then, superhero outfits on the big screen have inched closer and closer to their comic book counterparts. Just have a look: Captain America, Thor, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, even the X-Men themselves in Apocalypse look as though »

James Mangold Explains Why Wolverine’s Iconic Yellow Suit Didn’t Make It Into Logan

21 February 2017 7:31 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Old Man LoganMark Millar and Steve McNiven’s brooding eight-issue comic book, was consistently name-dropped throughout the course of development on James Mangold’s Logan, as the writer-director went about crafting a somber, yet fitting finale for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine.

The result? One of the more nuanced, compelling superhero dramas to claw its way onto the scene in recent memory, according to our own Matt Donato, and the critical consensus reveals that Logan is the moody, R-rated Wolverine vehicle fans have been frothing for since Jackman first unsheathed those adamantium claws more than a decade ago. But soon after Hugh Jackman took to Twitter to tease “The Original” Wolvie back in January, there’s been another moment of potential fan service hot on everyone’s lips: Wolverine slipping into that iconic yellow suit.

Turns out the fan-favorite outfit has no place in Logan whatsoever – and that’s even »

James Mangold talks Logan and Wolverine’s classic yellow costume

21 February 2017 4:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few weeks ago Hugh Jackman tweeted out an image of the classic Wolverine superhero costume, leading to speculation that this could feature in Jackman’s latest, and potentially final, X-Men outing Logan.

This ended up amounting to nothing, as there are no superhero costumes at all in Logan [read our review here], and ScreenRant recently got a chance to speak to director James Mangold about this creative decision, with Mangold stating:

“I always feel a certain contingent of fans who are yearning for it. But the biggest block I’ve had – I’m willing to take the heat for it – is that, I can never get past, being a writer for these movies as well, that Logan is the least narcissistic of all the superheroes, any kind I can think of – Marvel, DC or anywhere else. What I mean by that is, who puts a special branded outfit on when they do good deeds? »

Meanwhile, a series of tweets from Alamo Drafthouse Brooklyn’s senior marketing & promotions manager Mike Sampson have revealed that 20th Century Fox has added three minutes to the original runtime of the film, leading to speculation that a post-credits scene may have been added following last week’s press screenings…

Logan tracking a $60 million domestic opening weekend

19 February 2017 1:04 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The reviews are in, with many hailing it as one of the best superhero movies of all time (read Rob Kojder’s ★★★★ review here), and with just two weeks to go before it opens in cinemas, the first box office tracking numbers for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine swan song Logan have now arrived online.

According to Forbes, the James Mangold-directed sequel is tracking a domestic opening weekend of between $55 and $60 million, which would put it ahead of the $53 million debut of The Wolverine, but down from the $85 million opening haul of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Of course, as we’ve seen time and time again, tracking numbers can be wildly inaccurate, and given the glowing reviews, Logan may have a chance of topping the $70.8 million opening of 300 back in 2007, which remains the record debut for an R-rated movie in the month of March.

I’m sorry everybody… I didn’t like Logan

19 February 2017 11:54 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis gives his thoughts on Hugh Jackman’s last outing as Wolverine, the incredibly well received Logan

Now that’s a loaded title! Perfectly designed to stand out amongst all the glowing Logan reviews in your MySpace timeline. Some will call it ‘clickbait’. Those people probably don’t understand what ‘clickbait’ is.

I write the title with a heavy heart, though. I wanted to love Logan. Everybody else seemed to. It’s a superhero Western with blood and swearing and Jean-Luc Picard. It’s like James Mangold looked up my Netflix viewing history, saw High Noon, Star Trek: The Next Generation and RuPaul’s Drag Race and thought, ‘let’s make a Wolverine solo movie specifically for this guy!’

Actually, ignore that whole RuPaul’s Drag Race part.

My reasons for not enjoying Logan are coming, but before we get there, I need to devote at least 500 words to over-establishing context. »

Weta Workshop unveils Ghost in the Shell collectible figures for The Major and Robo Geisha

18 February 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Weta Workshop has revealed its upcoming 1/4th scale mixed media figures for The Major and Robo Geisha from the live-action adaptation of the celebrated manga series Ghost in the Shell. The collectibles, which are both limited to 500 pieces, are available to pre-order now, priced at £359.20 each and are expected to ship in March in time for the film’s release; take a look below…

The Major’s thermoptic suit was to be a centrepiece of Ghost in the Shell and represented a benchmark for Weta Workshop’s creativity and innovation. Taking digital scans of actress Scarlett Johansson, the Workshop built an extraordinary physical effects suit unlike anything it had attempted before. Cast in a smooth, translucent silicone over a mesh fabric, it adhered to The Major like a second skin; a piece of technology, both practical and iconic. The artists of Weta Workshop have recreated Major’s stunning suit for you in this collectible statue, »

Spoilers: Does Hugh Jackman Finally Don The Classic Yellow Costume In Logan?

17 February 2017 3:03 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Logan premiered earlier today at the Berlin International Film Festival, and the first wave of reviews have been overwhelmingly positive. Hugh Jackman has maintained that this movie will mark his final appearance as Wolverine, of course, and as a result, we've all been wondering if this might be the release which finally sees him don the classic yellow and blue (or brown) suit.  After all, James Mangold teased it in The Wolverine, while the final Logan trailer featured a comic book with that in it. Well, it appears as if we can forget seeing it in a flashback or the present day as We Got This Covered reports that the yellow suit does not make a physical appearance.  The only time it shows up is in that comic book, and the mutant quickly tells the young X-23 that the team never donned colourful spandex costumes like those featured there.

‘Logan’ Review: Hugh Jackman Puts the ‘R’ in Wolverine

17 February 2017 1:30 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The worldwide success of last year’s “Deadpool” has apparently opened the door for R-rated superhero adventures, and director James Mangold (“The Wolverine,” “3:10 to Yuma”) takes full advantage. Our hero (played once again by Hugh Jackman) drops an F-bomb in his first line of dialogue, and soon thereafter he’s fighting off some would-be car thieves by sinking his claws directly into their skulls. But the screenplay — credited to Mangold, Scott Frank and Michael Green — feels more like the product of the guy who wrote “Green Lantern” (Green) than the one who wrote “Out of Sight” (Frank). It’s a perfectly. »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Logan’

17 February 2017 1:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Logan,” the third and final chapter in the “Wolverine” series (though it’s the 10th — count ’em — “X-Men” film, and not necessarily the last), opens in 2029 on the outskirts of El Paso, where Logan (Hugh Jackman) steps out of the beat-up limo he now drives for a living to confront the goons who are trying to strip the car. To say that Logan looks the worse for wear would be putting it mildly. He’s a drunk, with mottled skin and his trademark sci-fi muttonchops grown into a scraggly beard. (The beard looks like a virus that’s going around, as if Jackman were warming up to play Mel Gibson.)

Optics aside, it’s Logan’s mutant prowess that’s really been tamped down. In any previous installment, a skirmish with mere mortals wouldn’t have been much of a contest, but Logan’s razory knuckle-blades no longer pop with the same alacrity, »

Logan: Lrm's Review of the New Wolverine Movie

17 February 2017 1:30 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

After two solo movies that didn’t quite connect with the fans, director James Mangold returns for his follow-up to 2013’s The Wolverine, with Logan taking the basic premise of the “Old Man Logan” storyline for what is likely to be Hugh Jackman’s very last Wolverine movie.

Set years in the future in a timeline in which the future of Days of Future Past never took place and mutants are few and far between, Logan has given up on being any sort of superhero, grown out his beard and is working as limo driver “James Howlett” (Logan’s birthname, in case you didn’t know) in Texas.  As we meet him, a street gang makes the mistake of trying to steal his hubcaps and when Logan intervenes and is shot in the chest with a shotgun, he unleashes the claws and goes crazy on the gang.

Movie Review – Logan (2017)

17 February 2017 1:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Logan, 2017.

Directed by James Mangold

Starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Dafne Keen, Eriq La Salle, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Daniel Bernhardt and Elise Neal.

Synopsis:

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.

“Jesus, it breaks my heart seeing you like this.”

That’s probably not the quote word for word, but as Donald Pierce (head of security for a research facility up to no good and a southern drawl speaking cyborg leader played by Boyd Holbrook of Narcos rising fame) and his army of mercenaries physically have their way with Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman reprising the role possibly for one last rodeo) beating the crap out of him, »

‘Logan’ Review: Hugh Jackman Saves The Best Wolverine Movie For Last

17 February 2017 1:29 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The year is 2029, and the mutant formerly known as the Wolverine isn’t quite as invincible as he used to be. After being alive for almost 200 years, he’s finally starting to show his age. He’s haunted by something from his past (you’ll have to see the previous movies to find out what, or re-visit them to remember), and he hurts people in his dreams. He’s rotting from the inside out, he needs reading glasses, and his healing powers can’t keep up. He’s saved the world like eight times over, but he’s now a glorified Las Vegas Uber driver who cares more about his limo than he does his life. He may be the one guy on Earth who can’t drink himself to death, but that certainly hasn’t stopped him from trying. He’s pretty much a Johnny Cash song with adamantium claws. »

Logan Review

17 February 2017 1:29 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

From the first scene, from the very first word in fact, it is clear that Logan is far from just another comic book movie. It may be the latest X-Men film to the fans but James Mangold and Hugh Jackman have created something distinct and different. We saw hints of what they wanted to achieve in their 2013 film The Wolverine but Logan is purposefully named. The raw narrative drive and the unrelenting violence make a solid foundation for a new type of Wolverine movie. This is not your comic book hero come to life, this is real life with all the pain and pathos that comes with it.

Logan is a very different beast. It shrinks its focus to a fine point, it collapses the worldwide grab of its superhero brethren to an almost claustrophobic hold. This film is less about saving the world, and far more about saving yourself. »
