Back in July, Hugh Jackman posted teaser artwork for his highly-anticipated sequel Wolverine 3, while asking fans what they would like to see in his final Wolverine movie. During an interview last month, the actor revealed that several fans asked for the sequel to bring back Victor Creed, a.k.a. Sabretooth, who was most recently played by Liev Schreiber in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Liev Schreiber appeared on last night's episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he revealed that he would like to come back for Wolverine 3, possibly as "Old Man Sabretooth."
"I don't know if I'm invited, but what I heard was that the storyline is Old Man Logan. And when I heard that, I thought, 'Well, you know... there's Old Man Logan, there could be Old Man Sabretooth.'"
The Old Man Logan comic book story has been rumored as the basis for Wolverine 3 for quite some time, »
Recently, Jackman took to Twitter to post an image of himself in training for the role, and his Origins co-star Liev Schreiber replied in such a way that seemed to suggest he may also be returning as Victor Creed/Sabertooth. Of course, the internet pretty much decided it was a done deal after that, but fans might be in for some disappointment.

While chatting to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, the Ray Donovan actor suggested that the Tweet was misinterpreted, and that he was simply commenting on keeping up with Jackman’s exercise regime as he too approaches middle age. But, when asked if he’d be interested in reprising the role, he added the following:

As you've most likely heard by now, the currently untitled Wolverine sequel (which many have taken to calling The Wolverine 3) will be Australian actor Hugh Jackman's last time playing the feisty mutant. After seventeen years playing James Howlett/Logan/The Wolverine, Jackman has decided it's time to retire from the role, leaving many fans excited to see what big plans that Fox has in store for their arguably most recognisable mutant. Naturally, this has caused mass speculation, with a popular theory being that the film will be some sort of adaptation of the beloved Old Man Logan storyline by Mark Millar, and that Liev Schreiber will reprise his role as Victor Creed/Sabretooth from the disappointing X-Men Origins: Wolverine. You may also recall that, in this August just passed, Jackman tweeted a photo of himself working out for the role, with the caption "Let's do this! [Who's] with me!?", to »
A couple of weeks ago Michael Shannon offered up a few intriguing words on his role in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, suggesting that he had “flippers” for hands. Naturally this sparked a lot of debate amongst fans, and Shannon has now played down his comments in an interview with The Daily Beast, and in doing so he may have just inadvertently confirmed the inclusion of Doomsday in the DC superhero ensemble.
“Somebody was asking me about this in New York and I made up some ridiculous bullshit answer about how my character Zod has flippers, and this went viral on the Internet or something and people have been asking me about that,” states Shannon. “That is so obviously a complete bullshit story, right? But people took it seriously.”
“I wasn’t there [on set],” he continues. “It’s a really awkward situation—I’m in the trailer »

As if you needed any more proof that Hugh Jackman is one of the nicest guys on the planet, the famous Aussie star and long time 'Wolverine' actor made a young fan's day on Wednesday with a heartwarming gesture. Operating on behalf of the Make-a-Wish foundation, Jackman teamed up with radio channel Kiis 1065 to surprise nine-year-old Dominic, who suffers from cystic fibrosis. After leading Dominic to believe he was on set, Jackman shocked the young boy by popping out from behind the scenes and demonstrating his favorite action pose. The two then discussed some of the clawed mutant's best lines. Hilariously, Jackman's favorite wasn't very age-appropriate... Jackman will wear the claws 'one last time' in an untitled sequel to 2013's The Wolverine, which is due to hit theatres March 3, 2017. »
20th Century Fox's upcoming sci-fi sequel War Of The Planet Of The Apes has found one of its two human leads in Gabriel Chavarria (East Los High). He joins director Matt Reeves, who also helmed the previous installment, and star Andy Serkis (Avengers: Age Of Ultron), who's returning for his third go-round as franchise hero Caesar. Mark Bomback (The Wolverine) is penning the script. Details about Chavarria's role as well as details on the film's plot remain under wraps. Considering that the original 2011 reboot Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes grossed over $481 million worldwide, a sum which its 2014 sequel Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes nearly doubled with its $708 million global haul, Fox certainly has high hopes for this upcoming third installment. War Of The Planet Of The Apes is expected to hit theaters July 14, 2017; a week after Disney's Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales »
Lois Lane could find some competition for Clark Kent’s affections in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in the form of Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince, a.k.a. Wonder Woman, and Heny Cavill has offered a rather diplomatic response when asked by Cosmopolitan whether the intrepid Daily Planet reporter or the Amazon Princess is a better fit for the Man of Steel.
“This is a very long discussion because there are a lot of questions to be asked and answered,” states Cavill. “I mean who is better for a super-powered alien, a human or a goddess? Yes, the goddess can do all the normal things, which we would think are normal in a relationship, and not have any fear of Superman. But you also need to have that baseline of humanity, which Lois provides. And literally keeps his feet on the ground, keeps him down to earth. So »

Three days ago, Hugh Jackman decided to share his impersonation of Jim Carrey's The Mask in an Instagram video that quickly went viral. The star of that 1994 classic has now responded, sparking one very hilarious social media war. Yes, as you will see in the photo below, Jim Carrey is The Wolverine, and he is threatening his impersonation opponent with some deadly cutlery.
It's The Wolverine Vs. The Mask in what will surely be remembered as a showdown for the ages (well, in actuality you'll probably forget about it before you get home from work tonight). They both wear yellow costumes, they are both impervious to injury, and they're both flamboyant and loud superheroes! And they obviously like taking the piss out of one another, using the world as their platform. Though, this is more on the funny side. Don't expect this jovial beef to break out in the »
Presumably the product of some less-than-hectic schedules and a few too many coffees, the two Hollywood A-listers have recreated each other's most famous roles.
#JimCarrey mate trying my best to do justice! Clearly, I should stay in my own lane.

It started off with Jackman doing his best "Smokin'" as part of a Dubsmash game he was playing.
Here, in case you were wondering, is what the real article looks like:
Both big deals on both Twitter and Instagram, it's no surprise that Carrey saw Jackman's attempt - but what was a surprise was his impeccable response:

It looks like Hollywood is swinging for the fences, going for the grandaddy of Western canon literature: Homer's "The Odyssey." That grand work will now be reduced/adapted into a blockbuster movie, with an actor who knows a thing or two about green screens and CGI. The Wrap reports that The Wolverine, a.k.a. Hugh Jackman, is in early talks to star in the movie for Lionsgate. Francis Lawrence ("I Am Legend," "The Hunger Games: All The Movies Except The First One") will direct the movie that sees our hero venture home from the Trojan War and writing poetry. Nah, just joking, he's going to have some epic adventures.

When Warner Bros. first announced Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at the San Diego Comic-Con in 2015, the DC superhero ensemble was originally set to arrive on July 17th 2015. However, the film was pushed back to May 6th, 2016, which put it head-to-head with Marvel’s then-unannounced Captain America: Civil War, before WB decided to shift the date again to March 25th 2016.
By the time the film rolls around, it will have been close to three years since the previous instalment Man of Steel, and now Warner CEO Kevin Tsujihara has offered up a few words on the studio’s decision to shuffle around the release date.

“It was a tough decision at the time because it was going to create a hole in 2015,” Tsujihara tells The Hollywood Reporter. “But it was absolutely the right decision for the franchise, »

Although Michael Shannon’s Man of Steel villain General Zod is confirmed to be making an appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, his exact role in the film has largely been kept a secret. While we may not know how Zod fits into the plot (spoilers), especially considering that he died in Man of Steel, actor Michael Shannon did reveal some information about his character’s strange new look in a recent interview with Vulture.
While telling an anecdote about how he got stuck in a porta-potty during the shoot, Shannon said, “I was in my costume, and I couldn’t use my fingers because in the sequel I have flippers instead of hands. So I had these wax flippers on my fingers, and I couldn’t open the door, and I could hear Zack [Snyder, the director] being like, ‘Where’s Shannon?'”
He finished the story by saying that »

Following his work on Man of Steel, costume designer Michael Wilkinson then tasked with creating the look for The Dark Knight and the Amazon Princess (not to mention Aquaman) for the upcoming DC epic Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from director Zack Snyder. Now, during an interview with Peoples Choice, Wilkinson has offered some insight into his work on the hotly-anticipated blockbuster.
“We tweaked the Superman suit only slightly from our suit from Man of Steel,” states Wilkinson. “We streamlined plus sharpened the details of the costume a little to suit the more earthly (less alien) context of this film. The batsuit is a complete 180 degree turn from the previous film incarnations — our Batman’s power comes from his incredible physical strength and fighting skills, not from armor. The director Zack Snyder wanted him to look as much like the comic book version as possible — to be respectful to the original source. »

Disney.s solo Marvel movies have been killing it. In fact, depending on who you ask, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the best installment of the McU. But can Fox.s Marvel division pull off the same success with their solo films? We.ve only had two solo X-Men movies so far . X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine, one of which was a major disaster. With Hugh Jackman.s last Wolverine stint, Ryan Reynolds. Deadpool and Channing Tatum.s Gambit coming down the pipeline, they could mean good things to come for the studio. However, one X-Men actor isn.t convinced the solo X-Men movies are always viable. Shawn Ashmore, who plays Iceman in the X-Men movies, recently spoke with IGN and relayed his thoughts on the subject. When asked about a solo Iceman movie, he said, The other thing about the X-Men is I think is that they »
Thus far, it seems as though Hugh Jackman's final outing as Wolverine in 2017's The Wolverine 3 (as it won't be called) will be using the Old Man Logan storyline from the comics (although some have also debunked that particular rumour), and will also feature Patrick Stewart as Professor X (this one's been confirmed by Stewart himself, so we feel we're on safer ground there).
More recently, Jackman has now appeared on the Sydney Confidential Podcast, and he's been chatting about hanging up his claws, and fan demands for a return for Sabretooth.
"There were quite a lot of calls for Victor Creed to come back", he confirmed. Creed - aka Sabretooth - was previously played by Tyler Mane in the original X-Men film, and by Liev Scheiber in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. »
A while back, Hugh Jackman asked fans what they’d most like to see from his final time in the claws and mutton chops as The Wolverine, and in a recent interview, he revealed that “there were a lot of calls for Victor Creed to come back.”
The character has been Logan’s most dauntless adversary in the comics for many years, and was most recently played by Liev Schreiber in X-Men: Origins Wolverine. Now, while that movie wasn’t particularly popular with fans (to put it kindly), most people seemed to praise Schreiber’s performance as the feral killer who was obsessed with his “brother,” Logan.
Today, Jackman Tweeted the below image of himself working out for what we assume is his return as Wolverine, and look who just happened to comment.
@RealHughJackman do I have to do that…

Obviously, this isn’t definitive evidence that he’s returning, »

Warning – minor spoilers below…
We’ve seen some set photos of Gary Anthony Williams and WWE Superstar Sheamus as Bebop and Rocksteady pre-mutation, and it was always assumed they would end up as the rhino and warthog that we know an love from the cartoon.
Well, looks like that is the case.
Former WWE Superstar and current Ufc trainee was originally in line to play the role of Rocksteady, before the role went to his former colleague Sheamus. “I just assumed Sheamus is a bigger dude, so they gave it to the big guy,” Punk told the Chicago Tribune. “It makes sense. They were looking for two big, muscly bouncer types. Sheamus fits the role. I think they end up getting mutated half way through. You didn’t hear that from me, though.”
So, looks like we will be getting the classic looks for the characters, though this is hardly »

Though X-Men Origins: Wolverine is pretty much universally despised, the general consensus seems to be that Liev Schreiber's Victor Creed/Sabertooth was one of its saving graces. Recently Hugh Jackman asked fans what they most wanted to see from his final go-around as the clawed mutant, and Schreiber returning as Creed was up there at the top of the list. Could we really see it happen? Well, check out this Tweet. @RealHughJackman do I have to do that... — Liev Schreiber (@LievSchreiber) August 18, 2015 Now there is going to be a lot of assumptions here. We can assume Jackman is training for an upcoming role, we can assume that role is Logan in James Mangold's follow up to The Wolverine, and unless Schreiber is joking around (which is also a possibility of course), we can assume he's talking about joining him. These guys don't have any projects in the pipeline »
While we still have a few months until Wolverine 3 starts production in early 2016, Hugh Jackman recently shared new artwork from the highly-anticipated sequel, which will be his last time playing the beloved mutant. The artwork was accompanied by a request, where he asked fans what they want to see in the superhero sequel. The actor recently appeared on the Sydney Confidential Podcast, where he teased that the return of Victor Creed, a.k.a. Sabretooth was among the most popular request from the fans.
"There were a lot of calls for Victor Creed to come back. I must admit I was quite heartened by a number of people saying please don't make it the last, but look, I'm really excited about this last one. And if you're a comic book fan, the words "berserker rage" came up a lot. If you know Wolverine, you'll understand."
Sabretooth was originally played by »
We’ve still got quite a bit of time to go until The Wolverine 3 hits theatres. In 2017 though, Hugh Jackman will portray the titular mutant one final time and already fans are giddy with anticipation at the prospect of seeing what the actor has in store for them. So far, we know that director James Mangold will be back behind the camera, and it was recently confirmed that Patrick Stewart will be making an appearance, too.
As for plot details, the film is apparently going to look to the Old Man Logan comic arc for inspiration. Which, for those who don’t know, is a fairly well-loved comic-book arc by Mark Millar and artist Steve McIven that many have been hoping to see adapted for some time. In it, Logan has survived the extinction of the X-Men and is living out his final days with a loving family in a »
