UPCOMING “WOLVERINE” FILM FINALLY GETS A TITLE AND A POSTER!

Published

on

Director James Mangold dropped a bombshell today via social media, tweeting the second page of he and Hugh Jackman’s upcoming “Wolverine” script, along with an official poster and title, that has raised many questions about the direction of the upcoming film.

The poster for ‘LOGAN,’ which features Wolverine’s hand with claws extended has raised many questions about the film.   It also includes what appears to be a small child’s hand, holding Logan’s.  Some have speculated that the child is in fact X23, others are believing this to be the offspring of the world’s favorite X-Man.

Based on the pages of the tweeted script we are going to see a much older Logan now, who’s abilities aren’t what they use to be.  He is in constant pain and turns to alcohol to self medicate.

The script also reads: 

Now might be a good time to talk about the ‘fights’ described in the next 100 or so pages. Basically, if you’re on the make for a hyper choreographed, gravity defying, city-block destroying CG fuc#athon, this ain’t your movie. In this flick, people will get hurt or killed when shit falls on them. They will get just as hurt or killed when shit falls on them. They will get just as hurt or just as killed if they get hit with something big and heavy like, say, a car. Should anyone in our story have the misfortune to fall off a roof or out a window, they won’t bounce. They will die. As for our hero, well, he’s older now and it’s clear his abilities aren’t what they once were. He’s fading on the inside and his diminished healing factor keeps him in a constant state of chronic pain – hence booze as a painkiller.

‘Logan’ is set to hit theaters March 3, 2017:  Starring Hugh Jackman, Boyd Holbrook and Patrick Stewart

Joaquin Phoenix Stares Into Your Soul As The Joker Via “il venerdì di repubblica” Cover

“Cinematic achievement on a high level.”

Director Todd Phillips has gone on the record stating, his film is going to piss off hardcore comic book fans. The upcoming ‘Joker’ movie will not follow any comic book plot lines or continuity for the villain, and will in fact be its very own stand alone film. With that being said, the movie is already garnering praise from select audiences. Cameron Bailey, co-head and artistic director of the Toronto International Film Festival, went on record with Toronto Sun, hailing the film as “Cinematic achievement on a high level.” Bailey continued on, saying:

“First of all it’s terrific. So it should play on our largest stage. But it’s a really original take on comic book movies and on the Joker character in particular. It’s not based on an existing story, it has one of the greatest actors in modern cinema, Joaquin Phoenix, in the lead, and Robert De Niro is in it as well, one of the best actors that has ever lived.”

Bailey, also went on to say, the film is “Very cinematic,” for a low budget feature.

“Has an interesting tone and approach to it. It’s set in the late ’70s, early ’80s and it feels like it was made then. It’s gritty in its look, it has references to Martin Scorsese’s filmmaking and it feels like a cinematic achievement on a high level. Although it’s working with very populist material, it has great ambition. That’s why it’s a Gala.”

Marvel’s ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ To Reveal The One True Mandarin

‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ was announced at SDCC as part of Marvel’s upcoming phase 4 slate. It is set to be the third film in Phase 4 and will be released February 12, 2021. ‘Ten Rings’ will feature Shang-Chi ( Simu Liu ), a Kung-Fu Master, who will face off against, The Mandarin. You heard that right, THE MANDARIN. But not that Mandarin, The real Mandarin.

‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ will be the first Asian led Marvel film. It will follow the legendary martial artist on his quest to stop The Mandarin (Tony Leung) on his quest for world domination. The Mandarin is villain that many MCU fans know little about, especially after ‘Iron Man 3’ pulled the old bait and switch by having the Mandarin revealed to be an actor played by Ben Kingsley named Trevor Slattery, whose sole purpose was to divert Stark’s attention from the true villain of the film, Aldrich Killian.

Shang-Chi (Chinese: 尚氣; pinyin: shàng qì; literally: ‘rising of the spirit’) is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by writer Steve Englehart and artist Jim Starlin, first appearing in Special Marvel Edition #15 (cover-dated December 1973) in the Bronze Age of Comic Books. Often referred to as the “Master of Kung Fu”, Shang-Chi is proficient in numerous unarmed and weaponry-based wushu styles, including the use of the gùn, nunchaku, and jian. In later years, he gains the power to create countless duplicates of himself, and joins the Avengers. -Wikipedia
