Hugh Jackman has proclaimed that Wolverine 3 will be his final time playing the X-Men character that made him a star, and now we know who will be portraying his big adversary in the film: Boyd Holbrook, as “the chief of security for a global corporation” that’s after the titular hero.
Friends, we’ve finally made it: The hellishly wearisome event that is April Fool’s Day is basically at its end. We at io9 despise this black day, but even our curmudgeonly souls got a smile out of this “prank” by the Canadian Library and Archives, which claimed to have dug up Wolverine’s military records from its…
Not me! Because reminding everyone about the horror that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine is not the way to go here. Deadpool and Days of Future Past just got done erasing the worst parts of the early X-Men movies from the timeline. Don’t undo all their hard work.
Well, that didn’t take long! A mere two days after Deadpool’s shocking box office success, Fox has begun going all-in on “adult” superhero films. At the New York Toy Fair, the studio announced that it wants the third solo Wolverine movie to also be rated “R.”
All decent, right-thinking people love action movies with a high body count. But few movies pack the combination of insane violence and ludicrous self-mockery that you’ll find in Deadpool, in theaters today. This is a celebration of slaughter that gets so silly, it actually feels sort of joyful. Vague spoilers ahead!
Deadpool wasn’t always a comics (and movie, and video game) superstar. The Merc with a Mouth started out much smaller, as a supporting character in one of the many X-Men comic books. We talked to the people who created and shaped him, to find out how Deadpool conquered the universe.
By which I mean, he has a lot of people to kill. What, you thought a new comic starring the angry, bitter, elderly Logan would be about his grocery needs or something?
This new Deadpool promo was in Morning Spoilers, but it’s so good, I didn’t want anyone to miss it. It features the Merc with a Mouth wishing Australia a happy Australia Day mainly by making fun of them and throwing shade at them for producing Wolverine and by extension, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a “personal low…
Greetings, folks! I’m in the desolate ruins of New York City, visiting the former Gawker offices for the first time (honestly, it’s hard to tell what was destroyed in the apocalypse and what is just unfinished construction). But there’s always time for mail, including why toy collectors are so bitter, whether movie…
Greetings, whippers of snappers! You guys sent in a bunch of (short) questions this week so I have a bunch of (long, rambling) answers! More of those, please! Meanwhile, let’s keep dissing Fantastic Four, discuss whether Hugh Jackman is trolling fans, and stop people who want to send movie studios free money.
At least, that’s the answer that Patrick Stewart gave when asked about it. And he seems really taken with the idea of doing the “Old Man Logan” story for this movie.
Greetings, my fantastic friends! (finger guns) Don’t worry, not all the questions in this week’s mailbag are about a certain fantastic flop, although there are a few; I guess that’s what I get for not doing a FAQ. But I also try to solve one of Star Wars’s weirdest, nerdiest mysteries—why the hell is C-3PO programmed…
Hugh Jackman has taken to Twitter to release the concept art from the upcoming third standalone Wolverine movie. He’s also asking for fifty words or less from fans about what they want to see. So go tweet “Logan using his knives to make fruit salad” — my personal hope.
20th Century Fox ended its Hall H Comic-Con panel on Saturday by bringing together the casts of Fantastic Four, X-Men Apocalypse, The Wolverine, Deadpool and even Channing Tatum as Gambit for an awesome group photo.
Whoa. We’ve been getting dribs and drabs of reveals for Marvel’s upcoming universal reboot over the past week, but it looks like the jackpot has just hit: Comics retailers across the world have received previews for 45(!) of Marvel’s new series, and it sounds like it’s a whole lot of crazy.
Marvel Comics has been getting ready for a massive reboot of their comics universe, and in the last couple of days, they’ve released some teaser images that reveal just how different their world is going to get.
We always feel guilty and ashamed — like bad movie-lovers! — when we have to take a pee break in the middle of a long movie. What if we miss the best bit? But certain films make it easy, with long stretches that you can safely miss. Go to the bathroom. Get a soda refill, even. Which movie can you safely miss a decent…
Hugh Jackman took to his Instagram to announce that the third Wolverine movie (due in 2017) will be his final round playing the iconic character that made him a movie star. Can't really blame him; the first X-Men movie came out in 2000, which means there's a good chance he hasn't eaten a carb in almost two decades.
If we see a dozen more movies with Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, we'll have this year's best picture, Birdman, to thank. In an interview with Cigar Aficionado, Jackman spoke from the perspective of watching Birdman as an actual actor with an iconic superhero role. And the movie may have struck much closer to home for him…
Science fiction and fantasy are full of great quotable phrases — but some are damn near irresistible. No matter how hard you struggle, these phrases worm their way into your consciousness. No matter how much you deny it, you let them back out. Here's a list of 10 phrases too good not to repeat.
