While no one connected to either project has confirmed that Hugh Jackman will once again reprise his role as the indestructible mutant Logan in Deadpool, the actor himself has teased that it is more likely than him showing up in any of the other spinoffs or X-Men: Apocalypse. Adding some weight to this is the fact that Deadpool reshoots are happening right now. And it was Hugh Jackman who posted this video on his Twitter.
So, is Hugh Jackman in Vancouver? Or did Ryan Reynolds send the actor this video to post? We're not sure just yet. And we might not know until the film opens in time for Valentine's Day this February. What we do know is that Ryan Reynolds has returned to his hometown to shoot additional scenes for this Marvel adventure from 20th Century Fox. And we know some of those scenes involve a garbage truck and a sharp dressed man getting a head-butt from Wade Wilson himself. Will we see Hugh Jackman set photos later today? Perhaps.Read More
During 20th Century Fox's Hall H presentation at 2015 Comic Con, X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer engaged in a cryptic conversation with Hugh Jackman, who has appeared as Wolverine in every X-Men movie to date, but still hasn't been confirmed for an appearance in X-Men: Apocalypse. While the conversation certainly didn't confirm a Wolverine cameo, it did hint that one may be possible, and if a new report is to be believed, fans will see Wolverine in X-Men: Apocalypse. Journal de Montreal is reporting that the director is assembling his cast in Montreal early next year for reshoots, and that Hugh Jackman may be on hand.
This report hasn't been confirmed by 20th Century Fox, director Bryan Singer or Hugh Jackman, but it would seem fitting to bring the star aboard, to continue his streak of consecutive Wolverine appearances. The actor has confirmed numerous times that Wolverine 3, which is slated for release on March 3, 2017, will be his final performance as the beloved mutant Logan. It isn't known what the production may have planned for the actor's appearance in X-Men: Apocalypse, which is set in the year 1983, 10 years after the events of last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past.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
Hugh Jackman made waves on the Internet yesterday when he mentioned Tom Hardy as a possible replacement for indestructible mutant Logan after Hugh's done with the character following Wolverine 3. As everyone knows by now, Wolverine 3 will be the final time Hugh Jackman dons the claws for 20th Century Fox and their X-Men franchise. Fans have continuously speculated about who may be called in to assume the position after 2017. And some even believe Fox may have a contender waiting in the wings. Fan art maestro BossLogic has taken it upon himself to show the word exactly what Tom Hardy would look like suited up in the inevitable reboot. The results are pretty impressive.
A lot of fans believe that Hugh Jackman is irreplaceable as Wolverine. But that has never stopped Hollywood from rebooting one of its more popular characters. No one can escape the reboot machine, not even Han Solo, who will be recast with a younger actor in an upcoming Star Wars Anthology movie set to hit screens in 2018. Audiences are growing accustomed to seeing new actors step into iconic roles. And if the casting right, fans may even embrace a new Logan. But should it be Tom Hardy?Read More
It isn't known if 20th Century Fox is actually mulling over who may replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, especially since production won't begin on Wolverine 3 until early 2016. We still don't have any confirmed plot details for Wolverine 3 yet, but there have been rumors that X-Men Origins: Wolverine star Liev Schreiber may be reprising his role as Sabretooth. James Mangold is directing from a script by Michael Green.
Tom Hardy is no stranger to the superhero world, having played the villainous Bane in 2012's The Dark Knight Rises, although he has yet to star in an adaptation of a Marvel comic book. We reported in August that the actor is attached to star in the DC Comics adaptation 100 Bullets, but it isn't known if he would even be interested in taking on the Wolverine role. Hugh Jackman was 32 years old when the first X-Men came out back in 2000. If in fact Tom Hardy does sign on at some point, the 38-year-old actor would be a bit older than his predecessor when taking over the role.Read More
