LOGAN NOIR in Black and White For One Night Only Next Tuesday

LOGAN NOIR in Black and White For One Night Only Next Tuesday

As if Logan, critically acclaimed and a box office smash, could shoot for more arthouse appeal.  A superhero drama that transcends the conventions of the drama and hews much more closely to those of the Western, Logan may well be the superhero film that makes it to the awards season for non-technical categories.  In that vein, the idea of the film in black and white should be enough to make cinema geeks salivate.  Especially given that Mangold…

Back Issues: WTF Logan? 5 Dumb Wolverine Moments

Back Issues: WTF Logan? 5 Dumb Wolverine Moments

Welcome to another edition of “Back Issues”, the column where I examine a character, concept or theme making waves in comics today through issues from the past. With 20th Century Fox’s “Logan” opening in theatres today, it’s a big day for everyone’s favorite hirsute Canadian (sorry, not you, Eugene Levy). The film marks the final time Hugh Jackman will sheathe his claws (unsheathe his claws? Both?) in the role that made him a star, and…

Bryan Singer Confirms One of Cyclops’s Villains for Wolverine 3

  Yesterday, Cinemablend reported that Bryan Singer has confirmed that Mister Sinister will make an appearance in Wolverine 3.  In his and Simon Kinberg‘s commentary audio on X-Men: Apocalypse, Singer talks about the post-credits scene. The scene depicts suited men walking through the ruined Weapon X facility.  They find samples from ‘Weapon X’ — Wolverine — and place them into a metal briefcase.  The briefcase reads: Essex Corporation. Any fan worth their X-logo merch can tell…

Point of Entry: Extraordinarily Uncanny X-Men

Point of Entry: Extraordinarily Uncanny X-Men

There’s very few series as convoluted and winding as the X-Men, featuring over two dozen main titles since it’s creation in 1963. This week’s Point of Entry will try to unravel the main storyline through the X-Men universe, focusing on six key jumping on points. The X-Men have been many things over the years, mostly a reflection for the world, pointing out prejudice and racism. Many of their enemies are relegious zealots or groups that would…

X-23 Rumored to Make Her Film Debut in Wolverine 3

X-23 Rumored to Make Her Film Debut in Wolverine 3

  The upcoming third installment in the Wolverine standalone movies has been gathering quite a bit of buzz since it will be Hugh Jackman’s last run as the character, possibly be based on the popular Old Man Logan storyline from the comics, and could also be rated R. Since this will be Jackman’s last outing as Wolverine, many thought that this would mean the end of having any healing claw wielding mutants in the future X-Men films, but if this latest…

Who is ‘Dead No More’?

Who is ‘Dead No More’?

Earlier this week, Marvel unveiled a mysterious advert simply reading ‘DEAD NO MORE’ in white capital letters against a black background. Fans with knowledge of the publishers’ currently deceased characters will be quick to suggest that this hints at the return of Wolverine, who has been dead since the events of 2014’s Death of Wolverine. Given the popularity of the character, and Marvel’s tendency to bring back characters fairly quickly, this does seem like the most likely option. …

COMMENTARY: Wolverine Might Die

COMMENTARY: Wolverine Might Die

Wolverine has long been one of the go-to staples of the Marvel universe but, based on recent information teased by Marvel, that might come be about to change. I’m being purposefully misleading, of course, as there is no way Marvel would actually cast off one of their flagship characters. However, if the recent Superior Spider-Man arc has revealed anything, it’s that Marvel isn’t scared to take creative risks with some of their most popular characters….
