Story details are under wraps. This will be the third solo outing for the popular mutant. It will be the 8th time Hugh Jackman as portrayed the character in a feature film.
This year is shaping up to be a big one for 20th Century Fox, with the release of highly-anticipated superhero movies such as Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse. This year will also be huge for the studio as a number of other big projects starts production. Today we have start dates for three of the studio's biggest movies, Wolverine 3, Avatar 2 and Alien: Covenant. All three of these movies start filming in April, albeit in different locations around the globe, according to My Entertainment World.
Wolverine 3 is reportedly set to start filming on April 25 in New Orleans and Mexico. Star Hugh Jackman revealed last week that the script was finished, although he wouldn't say exactly when production will get started. The actor is currently the only confirmed cast member at this time, but it is believed that Patrick Stewart will also be back as Professor X. No story details have been confirmed yet. James Mangold (The Wolverine) is directing Wolverine 3 from a script by Michael Green, who is also writing the Untitled Blade Runner Project and 20th Century Fox's Alien: Covenant.Read More
What isn't known quite yet is if Hugh Jackman's beloved character will have a cameo appearance in this summer's X-Men: Apocalypse. The actor took part in a cryptic exchange with director Bryan Singer at San Diego Comic Con last summer, where it was mentioned that the actor has been featured in every X-Men movie to date. Still, his presence as Wolverine still hasn't been confirmed for X-Men: Apocalypse, so we'll have to wait and see.
James Mangold (The Wolverine) is directing Wolverine 3 from a script by Michael Green, who is also writing the Untitled Blade Runner Project and 20th Century Fox's Alien: Covenant. Hopefully we'll get more updates on Wolverine 3 very soon as the filmmakers get this script ready for production. Are you looking forward to Hugh Jackman's swan song as Wolverine?Read More
The IMAX release of each film will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.
Of the four movies announced, Deadpool will arrive first, debuting in theaters on February 12, 2016. It will be followed by Independence Day: Resurgence, in theaters June 24, 2016. The Maze Runner: The Death Cure opens February 17, 2017. And Wolverine 3 opens the following month on March 3, 2017. There is no mention of whether or not X-Men: Apocalypse will be coming to IMAX.Read More
If you don't recall the actor's blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene in X-Men: First Class, Logan is approached by Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lensherr (Michael Fassbender) in a bar, while they are recruiting new mutants, where Logan tells them, "Go f--k yourselves." Hugh Jackman has starred in seven movies as Logan/Wolverine, 2000's X-Men, 2003's X2: X-Men United, 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand, 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 2011's X-Men: First Class, 2013's The Wolverine and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. While it's strange to think that the actor's tiny cameo in X-Men: First Class is his favorite scene, he does have a point, in that it "sums up the character" in such a short amount of time.
Since Hugh Jackman has appeared in literally every X-Men film to date, many are wondering whether or not he'll pop up in X-Men: Apocalypse, after the actor and director Bryan Singer had a cryptic exchange during their Hall H panel at Comic Con. Principal photography has already wrapped on X-Men: Apocalypse, but it's possible they either already shot a secret cameo, or that they could be doing reshoots, where Hugh Jackman could step in as Wolverine. Take a look at the actor's video interview segment, and chime in with your thoughts below. We also have the scene in question.Read More
Though Hugh Jackman and others have outright denied it, many fans still believe Wolverine 3 is going to be based on the classic Marvel comic story 'Old Man Logan', written by Mark Millar. One of the detracting factors from this becoming a reality is the fact that the comic book featured characters owned by Disney and Marvel Studios. Ones they're probably not willing to share. Hawkeye, who is a key player in Marvel's The Avengers, is also the secondary character in 'Old Man Logan'. Other characters include She-Hulk, King Pin, Red Skull and Black Bolt, just to name a few. Well, Mark Millar doesn't think that matters. In fact, he believes the story is strong enough to stand on its own without the help of these other Marvel owned characters.
Over the summer, Hugh Jackman asked fans to send him ideas for Wolverine 3. At the top of everyone's wish list was seeing 'Old Man Logan' brought to life on the big screen. During Comic-Con this past July, Hugh Jackman joked that it was going to serve as the basis for the script, and some fans took him a little too seriously. As far as we know, 'Old Man Logan' simply isn't happening. But Mark Millar hints that it should. Speaking with IGN, he explained how it could definitely work.Honestly, the continuity stuff is the most boring side of it. I kind of like it, keeping it in the X-Men universe a little, too, because comic fans are different from the mainstream world. I know this stuff backwards because I've lived my whole life loving this stuff, but most people don't know the entire minutia and everything so I think keeping it simplified and keeping it generally X-Men universe is a smarter thing to do.Read More
