The Wolverine News


Director James Mangold Talks Developing THE WOLVERINE for Fox, Depicting Japan in the Film, and the Status of THE WOLVERINE 2 – There weren’t really any expectations for The Wolverine. Following the less-said-the-better one-two punch of X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins Wolverine, the series and its franchise star James ‘Logan’ Howlett (aka Wolverine) seemed more than a little overripe. There just didn’t seem much left to mine from The Wolverine.

Hugh Jackman Talks THE WOLVERINE Sequel; Says "There Are Some Really Cool Ideas" – With this summer’s The Wolverine, we finally got a standalone film for one of the most popular X-Men characters that actually did the titular mutant justice. Director James Mangold and Hugh Jackman crafted a Western throwback that honored the spirit of the character while bringing a more intimate approach to the superhero genre—for once our hero wasn’t working to save an entire city (or the world) from destruction. 22 weeks 42 min ago via theothersenhman

The Last Stand
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s first solo effort since leaving office in California was Korean director Jee-Woon Kim’s “The Last Stand.” It opened in the U.S. in January of this year with a weak $6.3M and finished its run with just $12M, about a fourth of its $45M budget. Worldwide, it has taken in $37M so far.

Donnie Yen vs. Ken Lo in "Special ID"
Apparently, Donnie Yen’s no match for “The Wolverine.” The latter debuted last week against the former’s “Special ID.” I’m kinda surprised that China didn’t clear the slate for Yen’s latest actioner to protect local productions, but instead gave it direct competition for action fans from Hugh Jackman’s latest.

Hugh Jackman Reveals Wolverine Almost Had a Cameo in Spider-Man – It's long been a dream for fans that Marvel Studios films should at least attempt a cross over with Sony's Spider-Man and Fox's X-Men films.

The logistics of the studios letting this happen is a bit of a nightmare, but it did almost happen once apparently. 31 weeks 2 days ago via jetli

Has Hugh Jackman Been Offered $100 Million To Reprise Wolverine? – Today is a day for rumors, it seems. This latest one, though, has nothing to do with either Star Wars: Episode VII or the casting of Batman in Batman vs Superman. Instead, there’s a rumor circulating the tubes of the Internet that Hugh Jackman has been offered $100 million to reprise his role as Wolverine in four more Marvel movies.

Weekend Box Office Report: '2 Guns' Takes Top Spot

2 Guns
This weekend, the charts worked out about as predictably as they possibly could: one new release had just new film-appeal to propel it to the top, while the other—an ill-received sequel to a quasi-animated film that arguably did not justify a sequel—fell behind holdouts.
