Hugh Jackman Says He’ll Play Wolverine “One Last Time”

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 30, 2015 in Cinema, Comic Books


Hugh Jackman has started up the rumor mill — through his own Instagram account, no less. He recently posted an image of his hands and the Wolverine claws with the caption “WOLVERINE… ONE LAST TIME.” Would X-Men: Apocalypse be the last film he’ll play Wolverine in? He hasn’t even been confirmed for it and was assumed to not be in it. Instead, it’s most likely the upcoming The Wolverine film that Fox has slated for 2017 that he’s referring to. Still, would he stop being Wolverine? He said as recently as February that “I said to my wife, ‘The moral is that I should never stop playing Wolverine. I’ve got to find a way to keep playing him until I die.’ I know that someday they’ll recast the role with another actor… I’d be happy if the role was eventually recast. It would mean that it had become iconic.” Maybe… he’s just just making a play while negotiating his contract? Or perhaps he changed his mind and is finally finished. Read more…

Marvel To Kill Off Prominent Character

Posted by Ben Huber on Apr 27, 2014 in Comic Books


I won’t even use a spoiler-y header image, just in case you don’t want to know who’ll be killed off next in the Marvel universe. But read on to find out! Surprise: it’s Wolverine. They haven’t specified how he’ll die yet, but it’ll be part of the “3 Months to Die” series where Wolverine loses his regenerative abilities. It’ll be a miniseries titled “Death of Wolverine, ” which is maybe a bit too on-the-nose for me. I suppose it’ll make it easy to find, though. According to Marvel executive editor Michael Marts, the repercussions will be felt throughout the Marvel universe. Until 6 to 9 months from now, you know, when Wolverine comes back from the dead. Maybe a year, max. Comic book characters never stay dead. Read more…

First Trailer For The Wolverine Takes Us To Japan

Posted by Bob Muir on Mar 28, 2013 in Cinema, Comic Books

The Wolverine

I feel like this movie has been in production forever, but here it finally is, the first trailer for The Wolverine, the new Logan-centric X-Men movie that will hopefully make people forget about X-Men Origins: Wolverine back in 2009. It seems Wolverine is now mortal (whatever that means), but he’s still capable of slicing up ninjas and the Silver Samurai. Does this make up for the bad X-Men films, or are people still putting their hopes on X-Men: First Class follow-up X-Men: Days of Future Past? Read more…

Batman Deliverance: Not What It Sounds Like

Posted by Gia Manry on Jun 7, 2011 in Comic Books, Fandom

No, no– it’s not about Batman raping hicks. Or hicks raping Batman. It’s a French fan-made film about a Batman getting on in his years but still suiting up for one last fight…against Wolverine.

Yeah. I said Wolverine.

Seriously, who cares about Superman versus Batman? Watch the epicness after the jump– the important part starts up at about 4, 4:30. Before that is introspection in French, which is apparently a requirement of all French cinema.

The Wolverine Is Now Directorless

Posted by Michael Sacco on Mar 18, 2011 in Cinema, Comic Books

Darren Aronofsky

Director Darren Aronofsky is known for great award-season films like The Wrestler and Black Swan (and The Fountain if you like genre stuff), but he was also attached to a rather unorthodox project: a Wolverine reboot called, well, The Wolverine. At least until now, anyway. Citing the fact that the film’s schedule would keep him out of the country and away from his family for over a year, he decided to call it quits from the project. Fox insists they’re going to move forward with the project, though without Aronofsky the prospect of another Wolverine movie just doesn’t sound that great, if it ever did. Read more…

Skottie Young Claws into Wolverine

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jun 16, 2009 in Comic Books

Wolverine First Class #19 illustrated by Skottie Young

I love Skottie Young’s work, but I’ve been wondering just when Marvel would allow him to take a pass at one of their more well known characters and it looks like for Wolverine First Class #19 they’ve let him run with the ball. The first thing I love about this cover is that it has a sense of humor, too often Marvel covers (or DC) take themselves too seriously. Yet you get right away who Wolverine is despite Young’s cartoony approach. In addition to the usual great draftsmanship and page layout the coloring here is A+: The added zip-a-tone as a texture is nice homage to comics books of the past: Read more…

Wolverine: Our Leaked Trailer from Secret Origins

Posted by Michael Pinto on Dec 14, 2008 in Comic Books

We just stumbled over this leaked trailer of X-Men Origins: Wolverine on the net! I have to say that I had my doubts about this film, but it looks like it’s going to be action packed. Although the bad news is that when you see it in theaters there will be the same idiots who get to their seats late just like you see in this secret trailer!
