Next year will be 10 years since Robert Downey Jr. made his surprise cameo in Iron Man to usher in the age of the combined McU. Kevin Feige talks about ten years of Marvel movies and his goal to bring all the Marvel super heroes into the McU.
Marvel studios president and the supervising mind behind the McU, is not resting on his laurels and still has plans for the McU which includes bringing the X-Men and Fantastic Four to the combined cinematic universe. He spoke to ComingSoon.Net about his plans.
Feige said, “It sort of blows my mind when I think about that. We’ll have 20 films in ten years. We’re now working on how we mark that occasion. How we celebrate it. I have a very fun memory of the tenth anniversary of Star Wars when I as in junior high school. Now Star Wars is 40 and »

There's nothing that makes Hugh Jackman smile bigger than his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness. The Logan star first fell for the actress while working one of his first acting jobs, the Australian TV show Correlli, and has been smitten ever since. In April 1996, the pair tied the knot at St. John's in Toorak, Victoria near Melbourne, and together they have two adopted children, Oscar, 17, and Ava, 11. After more than two decades of marriage, the two keep raking in precious moments whenever they're together. See some of their sweetest appearances below.

Now that Hugh Jackman has hung up the claws following the release of Logan, the actor has been chatting to Collider about the eventual recasting Wolverine, and how he would go about rebooting the fan favourite mutant.
“I think one thing we’ve learned: when X-Men started, it was pretty revolutionary,” said Jackman. “Like the comic book itself, I think there was an element of breaking conventions, of opening up in the concentration camp with a character, was not what people expected. I think X-Men has always been about asking questions, challenging norms and asking what’s going on. I’m not saying we’ve done that always, but I definitely think the spirit of Logan is in a way a reboot of that desire to keep taking risks and to ask more difficult questions, and to go deeper within the characters. In an irreverent way, it’s exactly what Deadpool did too. »

Does It Look Like I’M Joking?
The long-gestating Batman solo movie got a new rumour yesterday via Reddit (the same people who gave us that Flash rumour) which is claiming that The Dark Knight will take on a trio of villains. We already know that Joe Manganiello will be playing Slade Wilson/Death Stroke, but this new report is saying he will be joined by Scarecrow and Jared Leto’s Joker. Take this all with a pinch of salt, but Scarecrow was on the shortlist of bad guys to join Suicide Squad last year so it’s possible Jonathan Crane is on the mind of Warner Bros. and DC.

Meet Michael Bryce. He’s a special protection agent, and a damn good one at that. But when Ryan Reynolds’ sharpshooter is assigned the role of bodyguard, one sworn to protect a world-famous assassin (Samuel L. Jackson) by the name of Darius Kincaid, things begin to get complicated.
This odd-couple dynamic is the fuel powering The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Patrick Hughes’ zany action romp in which Reynolds and Jackson channel the spirit of Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston. The film’s tongue-in-cheek poster (see below) was enough to pique our curiosity, but Lionsgate has gone one step further today to dispatch the new and frankly hilarious final trailer.
Dialling the action up to 11, it’s a tantalizing tease of the studio’s upcoming feature, one that makes no bones about placing Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson’s duelling operatives front and center. In fact, their encounter is shaping up »

Although Logan contained enough clues for audiences to get a pretty good idea of what happened during the ‘Westchester Incident’, but director James Mangold has revealed to IGN that he originally planned to make it much more explicit by opening the film with the death of the X-Men.
“I literally had written an opening which started with that sequence, and so it was quite literal, who was dead,” said Mangold. But the reason we didn’t do it wasn’t to spare other films, it was that it redefined the movie. It made the movie about the X-Men, instead of being about Logan and Charles. And irrevocably, when you read the script opening that way, it became about this other tragedy, as opposed to that tragedy being something hovering like a shadow in the background for these characters.”

20th Century Fox's Logan marked the final performances for both Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Patrick Stewart as Professor X, but it also introduced a new character into this universe, the fan favorite X-23, played by newcomer Dafne Keen. During a Q&A session following a recent screening of the black and white version of Logan, dubbed Logan Noir, director James Mangold said he would be "shocked" if the studio didn't develop the character further, hinting that she could surface in another X-Men movie down the road. However, producer Hutch Parker thinks that isn't exactly the case, hinting that it's more likely she will get her own movie, rather than appear in a different X-Men movie. Here's what he had to say.
"I don't know definitively, but in terms of the stuff we've been talking about, it's not sort of slipping her into the background of another movie. It's looking at that character, »
Given how incredibly popular Wolverine has been since his introduction in comics forty years ago, it’s always been a little odd that he has not fared well on the silver screen. While he’s been one of the strongest elements in all the X-Men films to date, his solo offerings — X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine – have not exactly worked. Hugh Jackman has said he had one solo film left in him so the challenge for Director James Mangold was making this one good.
Thankfully, Logan, was more than good. It was a thrilling experience on screen and now on home video. The movie, out now from 20th Century Home Entertainment, works on multiple levels but is a fitting finale for Jackman’s portrayal of the canucklehead. Where the others were solo stories with lots of extra characters around, this is more of a buddy film with the first »

X-23: Logan introduced the dynamic Dafne Keen as Laura, aka X-23, a young mutant whose actions spoke louder than her words. Will she appear again in an X-Men movie? Producer Hutch Parker says the challenge is "to find a story that we think she could carry or certainly be kind of majorly significant within … the one that we've been kind of discussing loosely and kicking around is more likely to be its own film." [IGN] John Wick: Chapter 3: Director Chad Stahelski says the next installment in the John Wick series is "in the middle" of the writing process right now and production may get underway by the end of this year or the beginning of 2018. His focus in the next John Wick sequel, he says, is "to show you more of the...

Now with Logan on Blu-ray viewers can watch the sheer ferocity of the young Laura a.k.a. X-23 over and over until their bloodlust is quenched. The fact actress Dafne Keen was able to hold her own against the likes of an Oscar-worthy Hugh Jackman is otherworldly, and because of that fans are anxious to see more of her. The notion of that happening isn’t far-fetched, and the studio could be... Read More »

Logan brought Wolverine’s story to a very definitive close, but most fans and critics came out of the movie hoping to see more of Dafne Keen as the ferocious X-23. In the comic books, she becomes the new Wolverine following her father’s death and the X-Men Cinematic Universe taking us down a similar path surely makes sense.
As a result, there’s been a lot of speculation that we could see X-23 show up in everything from New Mutants to X-Force and even a future instalment in the X-Men franchise. However, producer Hutch Parker has now revealed that the most likely destination for the character will be a solo outing of her own.
“Yeah, I mean, look — I don’t know definitively, but in terms of the stuff we’ve been talking about, it’s not sort of slipping her into the background of another movie. It’s looking at that character, »

There has been much talk about the character’s potential to pop up in future X-Men franchise movies, with Logan’s director James Mangold even teasing her return. But according to producer Hutch Parker, there are no definite plans for X-23’s future appearances, and that her appearance in an X-Men movie isn’t guaranteed.
“I don’t know definitively, but in terms of the stuff we’ve been talking about, it’s not sort of slipping her into the background of another movie. It’s looking at that character, which is a great character and has a pretty interesting run within the comics, to find a story that we think she could carry or certainly be kind of majorly significant within,” Parker said to IGN. »

Logan marked a historic end to an X-Men career that spanned nearly 20 years for both Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart. While audiences loved the film it’s leaving studios with an interesting problem to solve: “How do we continue with X-Men?” Now that Jackman and Stewart are officially out as Logan and Charles Xavier what is the new crop going to look like? It’s not as if Marvel is sitting on this either. New movies and new characters are in development. However, when it comes to the Wolverine franchise there’s still a gaping hole that’s gotta be filled. If Hugh

In the Old Man Logan comic, from which James Mangold‘s Logan borrowed a few ideas, Wolverine killed the X-Men. In a flashback, it’s revealed Mysterio played mind games on Logan and tricked him into killing his family of mutants. Mangold and his co-writers ultimately used the spirit of that scene for Professor Charles Xavier (Sir Patrick Stewart), not […]

20th Century Fox have a difficult decision ahead of them regarding what to do with their X-Men movie universe. While the franchise as a whole is in rude health right now, thanks to the many off-shoots and spinoffs in the works, the series has lost its biggest star in Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. The actor bowed out of the iconic role in this year’s Logan, meaning that the universe is currently without a version of the X-Men’s most famous character. The man himself, though, has an idea about who should take over from him: his young co-star, Dafne Keen.
In an interview with Collider, Jackman got to talking about where the Wolverine character could go next. He believes that the role should be opened up to “any color, any race, anything,” but thinks the eleven-year-old Keen would “frickin’ nail it.”
Here’s what he had to say:

The phrase ‘A rising tide lifts all boats’ has become something of a mantra for those involved in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – most notably Kevin Feige – whenever the question of rival superhero film franchises crops up. While it’s almost certainly proven to be true in terms of box office receipts, the influence of one on another – be it Fox’s X-Men or Warner Bros’ Dceu – had never really been explicitly referenced, until X-Men: Dark Phoenix appeared on the horizon.
Heading for theatres on November 2nd, 2018, Dark Phoenix is indeed a prime candidate for expanding the X-Men universe into the cosmos. That’s because the focus of the film will be Jean Grey and the Phoenix Force – which, in the source material, hails from outer space – and X-Men franchise architect Bryan Singer has previously suggested that the specific success of Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy indicates that the stories »
