James Mangold interview: how Logan bucks the superhero trend

23 February 2017 8:39 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Feb 27, 2017

Ahead of Logan's UK release, James Mangold tells us why Wolverine's final bow is a different breed of superhero movie...

Time has begun to tell on the Wolverine. His face is careworn, he needs glasses to read, and even one of his adamantium claws doesn't quite extend as smoothly as it used to. This is, of course, Hugh Jackman's last hurrah as the sharp-clawed superhero, and an air of finality hangs heavily on Logan, directed by James Mangold.

It's a road-trip movie, it's western, it's neo-noir, it's science fiction. But overwhelmingly, it's a portrait of three outcasts and how they interact. There's Logan himself - trying in vain to lay low and work as a chauffeur on the Mexican border, Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart), whose old age has left him confused and cantankerous, and Laura »

Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore Are Having as Hard of a Time Getting Used to His Mustache-Free Face as You Are

15 February 2017 1:35 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Whether you know him as Jack Pearson on This is Us, Jess Mariano on Gilmore Girls or Wolverine, one thing is for sure: you love Milo Ventimiglia. Which also means that through the years, you’ve stuck with him through his many scruff iterations, from a full beard to a ’70s ‘stache. But now, the star has returned to his bare face yet again — and we’re paying tribute to all of his looks in the video above.

For months, the 39-year-old actor has kept us guessing on the facial hair front, switching from a beard to a goatee to »

Ah yes, the much loved and always anticipated Stan Lee cameo. It’s become a fixture in nearly every Marvel project to date, be it on the big screen or small, and fans are always excited to find out how he’ll factor into upcoming films or TV shows. This trend looks set to remain in tact for the foreseeable future, too, and as The Defenders continues to shoot in New York City, it’s now been revealed where the comic book legend will appear in the series.

A set photo (thanks, Getty Images), which you can check out below, has let the cat out of the bag a bit early, showing us that Lee will show up on a poster for the NYPD as a cop. This isn’t terribly surprising, given that we »

John Ostander: Annotating H4H, Part 2

29 January 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

This coming week, Marvel is issuing the second part of my work on Heroes For Hire and, as I did when the first volume came out, I thought I’d talk a little bit about it and why I made some choices that I did and what I was thinking when I created the stories.

Background info: my run on H4H began in 1997 and ran for 19 issues. The team was a corporate entity, hiring out groups of superheroes for various missions. Luke Cage and Iron Fist were the core, with the Original Human Torch, Jim Hammond, running the business. Lots of characters cycled in and out, the most constant being White Tiger, Ant-Man (Scott Lang), Black Knight and Thena of the Eternals. We also had lots of guest stars such as Hercules, Wolverine, Shang-Chi, She-Hulk and Deadpool who, not surprisingly, was featured on the cover.

Fox Orders Live-Action X-Men TV Pilot from 'Burn Notice' Creator Matt Nix

24 January 2017 11:22 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The X-Men are headed to the small screen.

Fox confirmed on Tuesday that the network has ordered an X-Men-based drama pilot from Burn Notice creator Matt Nix.

The untitled superhero-themed drama will focus on two seemingly ordinary parents who come to find out that their children are imbued with mutant abilities and superpowers.

Hunted by hostile government agents, the family is forced to go on the lam and team up with a clandestine, underground band of fellow mutants fighting to survive the threat of an authoritarian government.

Producer Lauren Shuler Donner, director Bryan Singer, writer/producer Simon Kinberg, producer Jim Chory and comic book writer Jeph Loeb -- who have all worked on films in the X-Men franchise -- will serve as executive producers on the hotly anticipated pilot.

‘Legion’: Creator Noah Hawley on Taking FX Series Beyond X-Men

24 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

TV’s first live-action X-Men series does not have many X-Men in it. In fact, FX’s “Legion” pilot boasts only one character from the Marvel comic books about so-called mutants. There is no Magneto, no Jean Grey, no Wolverine. There is definitely no Deadpool. The word “mutant” isn’t even mentioned until halfway through the episode.

If “Legion,” which premieres Feb. 8, feels like a distant cousin to the movie franchise that has grossed almost $4.4 billion worldwide for Fox since the first “X-Men” premiered in 2000, that is by design.

The designer is Noah Hawley, the writer- showrunner who pulled off the impossible by adapting the Coen Brothers’ cult-classic film “Fargo” into a critically acclaimed television series. For his next trick, Hawley will attempt the unimaginable yet again: reinventing the superhero genre with a show about an obscure character plucked from the bowels of a franchise whose recent screen iterations have prompted whispers of fan fatigue.

Get a Closer Look at the X-Men Comic Featured in Logan

24 January 2017 9:43 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the final Logan trailer debuted last week, one of the early scenes featured Hugh Jackman's title character discovering that Dafne Keen's X-23 is a fan of the X-Men comics. We get a brief glimpse at some of the panels, as Logan rmuses that "maybe a quarter of it happened," referring to the events depicted in these fictional pages. As it turns out, this on-screen comic book was actually brought to life for the film by Marvel's chief creative officer, Joe Quesada, who is sharing the page as seen in the trailer. If that wasn't enough, Hugh Jackman just debuted a sneak peek at the new Empire Magazine cover featuring a look at Logan after having been shot numerous times, along with four more photos from inside magazine.

Joe Quesada posted the comic book images on his Tumblr page last night, explaining how he worked closely with Wolverine »

Comic Book Page From Logan Trailer Reveals A Closer Look The The X-Men’s New Uniforms

23 January 2017 4:23 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While it didn’t matter so much when the first X-Men movie was released, fans have really rallied against the utilitarian black leather costumes worn by the heroes in Bryan Singer’s early films. That’s been reflected in the team getting some proper superhero costumes at the end of both X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool, but what about Logan?

With a very different setting from previous movies set in this world, it’s clear the threequel won’t be your normal superhero caper, but one of the trailer’s most intriguing moments came when Wolverine could be seen reading an X-Men comic book featuring himself and the likes of Cyclops and Rogue wearing colourful costumes. Fans are now understandably excited about the prospect of seeing Logan in his classic yellow and blue, and artist Joe Quesada has today released the page seen in the trailer along with some interesting insight »

Take A Closer Look At Wolverine And The X-Men's Costumes In This Comic Book Page From Logan

23 January 2017 12:40 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

James Mangold first teased us with the prospect of Hugh Jackman suiting up in a deleted scene from The Wolverine, and many fans believe we'll see the hero finally get a costume in Logan. Whether that's a flashback or because he needs it to compensate for his failing healing factor remains to be seen, but if nothing else, we'll at least get to see Wolverine in his classic blue and yellow duds in a comic book!  Created specially for Logan, Joe Quesada provided the artwork and has now revealed the page. He worked on others too, but those are being kept under wraps presumably until the movie is released. "Since this page is already public, as seen in the mind blowing Logan trailer, I’m guessing it’s okay to post these process pieces. It was a blast working closely with James Mangold on creating these pages (yes, there’s »

Marvel Artist Sheds Some Light On That Comic Book In The Logan Trailer

19 January 2017 4:55 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the coolest moments in the final trailer for Logan came when Wolverine could be seen leafing through one of X-23’s X-Men comic books. It was here that we finally got to see the hero wearing a version of his classic yellow and blue costume, and while he was quick to dismiss the stories as fiction, fans are now wondering about the chances of seeing the costume in live-action.

Time will tell if that happens, but some details have now surfaced about who was responsible for creating the comics seen in the trailer. It turns out that Fox was unable to use an actual X-Men comic book due to rights issues, so Hugh Jackman asked artist Joe Quesada (who was responsible for some artwork commissioned by President Obama not too long ago) to come up with a totally original one.

He was joined by inker Dan Panosian, and in a new interview, »

Fox’s ‘X-Men’ TV Show: Creator Matt Nix on How He’ll Introduce New Characters and Avoid the Wolverine Question

11 January 2017 4:58 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As Fox gets close to ordering its pilot set in the “X-Men” universe, creator Matt Nix revealed a handful of details on Wednesday.

The new, as-yet untitled show follows two ordinary parents who must go on the run after they discover their children have mutant powers. The show fits into the “X-Men” cinematic universe to some degree, Nix told reporters during Fox’s portion of the Television Critics Association press tour for “Apb” (which he also executive produces).

“Without getting into specifics, which I’ll get murdered for getting into, I would say that a fan of the movies but also the comic books would not be disoriented at all,” he said. “Where this fits in the mythology, if you look at the movies, which started around 2003 to now, they don’t all line up perfectly. So I’m not slavishly fitting myself into a particular slot. But at the same time, »
