Wolverine Almost Had a Much Bigger Role in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’
Wolverine Almost Had a Much Bigger Role in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’
Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine was teased in the second trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse, but given that his part was more of a glorified cameo, that little teaser may have felt like a spoiler to some — even though Wolverine appearing in a new X-Men movie is hardly surprising. Hardly. As it turns out, Jackman almost had a bigger role to play in the new sequel, but it was ultimately reduced to avoid detracting from Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique.

Patrick Stewart Confirms Professor X’s Return in ‘The Wolverine’ Sequel (Again)
We’ve known for quite some time that Patrick Stewart’s Professor X is returning for The Wolverine sequel, though it hasn’t been made completely official. The actor himself hinted at the possibility last year, and when we asked Hugh Jackman about it directly, he would only confirm that there were “some ideas brewing.” By now, Professor X’s involvement is pretty much guaranteed, but in case you needed additional confirmation, Stewart has provided it.

‘The Wolverine 2’ Casts ‘Narcos’ Star Boyd Holbrook as the Villain
It’s a big day for the leading men of Netflix’s Narcos — following Pedro Pascal’s casting in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Boyd Holbrook has lined up a pretty major role in another 20th Century Fox franchise: The Wolverine 2. The actor will go head to head with Hugh Jackman, playing the main villain in Wolverine’s final big screen outing.

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Director Bryan Singer Talks Wolverine and the Future of the Franchise
Hugh Jackman has been rumored to have a part — albeit probably small — in X-Men: Apocalypse for some time. Although the upcoming sequel to The Wolverine will be the actor’s final outing as the iconic X-Men character, there’s still a chance he could appear in Apocalypse, which closes out Bryan Singer’s current trilogy. In addition to maybe-sorta-kinda confirming Jackman’s part in Apocalypse, Singer talks the future of the franchise and his continued involvement in it.
Hugh Jackman’s Final Wolverine Movie May Also Get an R Rating
Hugh Jackman’s Final Wolverine Movie May Also Get an R Rating
The Deadpool Effect is now officially a thing. As many predicted and suspected following Deadpool’s surprising success at the box office this past weekend, movie studios would try to capitalize on the success of that film by making their superhero movies R-rated (ignoring the fact that that was just a very small part of why Deadpool was successful). Just this morning we brought you the news that the X-Force movie could be rated R and now comes word that Hugh Jackman’s still untitled final Wolverine movie (Wolverine 3? The Wolverine 2?) is being planned as an R-rated film.
‘Eddie the Eagle’ Super Bowl Spot Features Glowing Endorsements From NFL Players
‘Eddie the Eagle’ Super Bowl Spot Features Glowing Endorsements From NFL Players
Eddie the Eagle looks like it could be this generation's Cool Runnings, maybe, sort of — anyway, it looks charming as all get-out thanks to Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman, two actors who have charisma just seeping out of their pores. Although it's not a huge blockbuster movie with superheroes, it is a heartwarming sports dramedy, which makes Eddie the Eagle's new ad debuting during the Super Bowl sort of a no-brainer.
‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Will Reportedly Have Some Mutant Cameos, Obviously
‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Will Reportedly Have Some Mutant Cameos, Obviously
Earlier today, we reported the rumor that not only has Captain Marvel been cast, but she’ll be making her first appearance in the already superhero-heavy Avengers: Age of Ultron. Having major superheroes make cameos or debut in other films from their respective studios has become the norm, so it’s hardly surprising to hear that X-Men: Apocalypse — which is said to primarily focus on the First Class cast — will feature a few cameos from other X-Men…including one pretty exciting mutant in particular.
Hugh Jackman’s Mullet in ‘Chappie’ Is Not the First Time He’s Had a Mullet
Hugh Jackman’s Mullet in ‘Chappie’ Is Not the First Time He’s Had a Mullet
If you’re in need of about five minutes of Chappie star Hugh Jackman and Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon discussing, joking about, and sporting mullets, have we got a clip for you. Jackman stopped by the show last night to talk Chappie – all robots and future and stuff – but Fallon quickly fixated on his favorite element of the entire film: Jackman’s mullet. Turns out, Jackman went full mullet for the role, and it’s actually not the first time he’s grown out his own party in back/business in front coif.
The Next ‘Wolverine’ Movie Will Start Shooting in Early 2016
The Next ‘Wolverine’ Movie Will Start Shooting in Early 2016
Starting tomorrow, audiences around the country will be able to see Hugh Jackman in Chappie, playing a former military man turned robotics engineer trying to produce a new human-piloted police drone. He sports a hideous mullet, spends most of the film sitting at a dreary cubicle, and generally behaves like a dope. So if you’re a Jackman fan looking for the guy you love in the X-Men and Wolverine movies, I’m afraid you’re going to have to wait a while longer.
‘Chappie’ Review: Highly Artificial, Limited Intelligence
‘Chappie’ Review: Highly Artificial, Limited Intelligence
The technology in Neil Blomkamp’s movies is so fully realized and intricately detailed that it feels like another one of his characters. Now Blomkamp’s made Chappie, a film where that’s literally true in the form of a police robot given the gift of human consciousness. The result is one giant metaphor for itself; a story of the world’s first true artificial intelligence and how it is almost corrupted by violence, presented in a movie where any semblance of serious consideration of what it means to be alive is drowned out by gunfire, explosions, and macho posing.
Hugh Jackman Confirms Patrick Stewart’s Involvement in Upcoming ‘Wolverine’ Sequel
Hugh Jackman Confirms Patrick Stewart’s Involvement in Upcoming ‘Wolverine’ Sequel
Yesterday, Sir Patrick Stewart revealed that he would not, as was widely suspected, be returning for ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’. He did, however, tease his involvement in the next ‘Wolverine’ movie saying, “we have been talking about a Wolverine movie, which would team Hugh Jackman and myself together.” He offered no further details, so we took this rumor straight to the man himself, Wolverine, and asked Hugh Jackman for some details.
