The marketing campaign for Hugh Jackman’s third and final outing as Wolverine is continuing to ramp up to the film’s release via social media. The official Instagram has dropped another substantial reveal confirming Richard E. Grant as Dr. Zander Rice.
The film features an older Logan on the run from Donald Pierce (Boyd Holbrook) and the Reavers in the year 2024 as he protects and mentors Laura Kinney (Dafne Keen) A.K.A. X-23. The film also features a plot involving the government turning mutant children into killing machines in a top-secret government program called ‘Transigen’.
In the comics, Laura was the daughter of Dr. Sarah Kinney, who was a renowned mutant geneticist that was tasked with creating a clone of Wolverine after the top secret government program failed to recreate the Weapon X experiment.
After the program had failed, Kinney proposed they create a female clone due to the Y-chromosome of Logans genetic sample being damaged. Despite her superiors protégé, Dr. Zander Rice denying her, she went ahead and produced a female subject anyway ultimately convincing her superior, Dr. Martin Sutter to move forward with the experiment. Rice then forced Kinney to serve as a surrogate mother for the clone as punishment for her insubordination leading her to give birth to Laura.
Logan hits theaters March 3, 2017.
The film stars Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant and Boyd Holbrook. Written by David James Kelly and Michael Green. Directed by James Mangold.
With Bryan Singer exiting the X-Men franchise after the poorly received X-Men: Apocalypse and the contracts on James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence having expired, 20th Century Fox is rumored to be considering a reboot of the X-Men franchise.
Fox could be kicking off a new era of the franchise with New Mutants. Josh Boone (The Fault in our Stars) has been developing the project for some time now with Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) rumored to star as Wolfsbane.
Per a new report from Le Journal de Montreal, the production office for the seventh installment of the X-Men franchise opened yesterday at MELS studios. Set construction for the film will begin in January with shooting to get underway in May lasting for several months.
It is unknown whether or not this could be a continuation of the current franchise or a reboot, however. Josh Boone retweeted Den of Geeks coverage on the story, teasing the film going into production could be New Mutants.
New Mutants seems like the perfect way to give the Fox’s X-Men universe the refresh it desperately needs in order to wash the bad taste of X-Men: Apolocaypse from audience’s mouths. The franchise needs a new lease on life brought to fruition by some new blood and rolling with a set of different characters is a smart way to go.
Fox recently set two release dates for untitled Marvel projects including November 2, 2018, and February 14, 2019. Considering Deadpool was originally released around Valentines Day, with the sequel set to hit theaters next January and Deadpool 2 & 3 shooting back to back, it’s likely Deadpool 3 will land in February 2019, leaving November 2018 open on the release calendar for New Mutants to make its debut.

Just a month ago Marvel announced a groundbreaking partnership between IMAX and Disney/ABC Television Group to bring Marvel’s The Inhumans to the small screen. In an unprecedented move, the series will first see a theatrical debut exclusively in IMAX theaters on Labor Day 2017 for the first two episodes shot entirely with IMAX cameras. Following the theatrical debut, ABC will capitalize on The Inhumans by premiering extended versions of the first two episodes before beginning its fall run on September 26, 2017. Currently, the series is capped at eight episodes with subsequent action sequences also to be shot with IMAX cameras.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel has signed on Iron Fist showrunner Scott Buck to bring The Inhumans to fruition. Buck is best known for his work on the final three seasons of the showtime drama Dexter. While the last three seasons of Dexter weren’t the greatest, the decision to hire Buck signals a confidence in him. Marvel must be very satisfied with the Iron Fist series which makes it’s debut on Netflix March 17, 2017.
The official press release for The Inhumans describes the superhero team as a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers. The Inhumans were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965.

Meachum saw an opportunity to take over control of Rand-Meachum and he seized it when he cut Wendell’s safety rope as the two were crossing a crevasse in the Himalayas on their way to K’un-Lun.
Iron Fist Premieres March 17, 2017 on Netflix.

(SPOILERS FOR SEASON ONE AHEAD, OBVIOUSLY)
In the closing moments of the first season of Luke Cage, Luke (Mike Colter) was being carted off to prison after his true identity was revealed to the world. We knew it would only be a matter of time before his innocence was proven after Bobby Fish found the documents that would clear his name in Pop’s Barbershop. But in Luke Cage, the bad guys can win. And they did win. It’s obvious Luke has unfinished business with Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard) at the end of the series so a second season featuring Marvel’s hero of Harlem seemed a no-brainer.
Today, Marvel made it official, taking to Facebook and Twitter to announce the culturally relevant series will indeed return for a second season. Unfortunately, a release date has not been set but we can rest assured Luke will be back to help accelerate the demise of the self-destructive villains of Harlem most likely sometime in 2018.
Luke will next be seen in 2017 when the team-up series, The Defenders hits Netflix. The series pits the street level heroes of the Netflix corner of the Marvel cinematic universe against a villainous Sigourney Weaver whose role is still a mystery.
Luke Cage season one is currently available for streaming on Netflix.
The series stars Mike Colter, Mahershala Ali, Simone Missick, Rosario Dawson, Frank Whaley, Theo Rossi, Erik LaRay Harvey, and Alfre Woodard. Executive Produced by Cheo Hodari Coker.
