BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
We've decided to delve into the three worlds of the X-Men and discuss where they've left off following the events of Days Of Future Past. To be honest, there's a whole lot of questions hanging in the air, and we don't want to have to wait until 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse to answer them all.
It's time for him to walk away from the role that helped put him on the map, and I'll explain why in this week's Monday Movie Memo. Watch the video
But whatever the case, Fox is going to thrive on Jackman as Wolverine seemingly forever, so why not use him to boost other Fox franchises? And so we ask, which other Fox franchises deserve a little bit of Wolverine themselves?
X-Men: Apocalypse would primarily focus on the First Class gang and be set in the 80's, the early claim announced. But it would also be a fairly epic film, and you can't do epic without Wolverine, can you? It seems like Apocalypse would be prepping the world for an X-film without Wolverine (the character has appeared in seven X-movies thus far), but we might not be done with Jackman yet.
Long before Bryan Singer rounded up Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry and company for 2000's X-Men, Claremont was dreaming of his ideal X-Men movie, wherein Bob Hoskins would be his Wolverine.
There were some theories that Wolverine could lead whatever mystery Marvel project the studio has lined up for 2018, but that seems slightly in doubt. The Les Miserables star will be 49 years old in 2018 anyway, and it's a bit difficult to keep playing “ageless” when you're pushing fifty.
The coming years have a full 10 (!) more superhero films scheduled for release, with countless others to follow, just waiting for a schedule space to clear up. But what happens if these films don't work? What happens if the fans don't want to see certain characters again and again?
For years Hugh Jackman has managed an incredible career where he balances playing one of comic book movie's surliest heroes with rousing musical performances on stage and screen. Now, the star of The Wolverine and Les Miserables combines two of his greatest roles for our amusement.
Of course maybe Mangold is wondering what we all are: where does Days Of Future Past leave Wolverine? The Wolverine seems to occur in modern day, but the events of Days Of Future Past make Magneto and Professor X confront him in the post-credits sequence of The Wolverine, which is billed as “two years later.”
We have to dig deep into Days of Future Past. We have roughly 100 moving parts to organize as we get ready for the sequel’s May 26 release date. Here’s everything you need to know about X-Men: Days of Future Past.
I’m a selfish Wolverine fan. Despite all the great work Jackman has done in the X-Men movies, I’m not going to be happy until I see Wolverine in a mask, in a classic suit. Will it happen before the actor hangs up his claws? We shall see.
As Jackman himself says, this is “a way off.” Jackman seems to actively enjoy playing Wolverine, and fans still love him in the role. Fox has big plans for the mutant franchise, and this hero in particular. Will Jackman be part of the solution? Right now, it sounds up in the air.
Three Ways The Wolverine Unleashed Extended Edition Is Better Than The Theatrical Cut, And One Way It Isn't
With The Wolverine set to arrive on Blu-ray on December 3rd and now available on Digital HD, last night I was invited to attend a special screening on the 20th Century Fox Lot in Los Angeles to watch the premiere of the never-before-screened, unrated cut of the film that has been dubbed the Unleashed Extended Edition.
Hugh Jackman Planned A Wolverine And Spider-Man Crossover, And You'll Never Believe Why It Didn't Happen
Would you believe that, at one point, Wolverine was supposed to cross paths with Spider-Man? The Huffington Post about his big Toronto hit Prisoners, Jackman allowed a tangent about this summer's The Wolverine to lead to some speculation about whether or not Jackman himself could just show up in a Marvel Studios film, without any official Fox permission. As it turns out, that's not such a crazy idea-- he tried to do it on Sam Raimi's first Spider-Man
While this most recent standalone film definitely wasn’t one of the summer’s money-gobbling failures, it did take a steep drop after its opening weekend in July. And while it will no doubt make its budget back here in the U.S., it wasn’t the massive success that will immediately green light more films.
