Jackman Teases ‘Days’ as Last Outing as Wolverine

wolverine1

Days of Future Past is going to be an all-star X-Menpalooza, but one of Marvel’s Merry Mutants is now suggesting that his appearance in the upcoming X-film may be his swan song to the part that made him a movie star.

Yes ma’am (or sir), we’re talking about Hugh Jackman, and although he’s been very complimentary about the experience, the actor seems to be indicating that Days will be the last time he’ll play Wolverine.

It may be the last,” he said. “By the way, it didn’t hit me until three weeks before the end [of shooting X-Men: Days of Future Past], because we promoted The Wolverine and I came back on set with three weeks to go, and that’s when I went, ‘Well, who knows? Maybe there’s no more Wolverine. Maybe this is it. Who knows? Maybe.‘”

Although it’s been a 13-plus year odyssey, Jackman isn’t feeling much in the way of regret or remorse if this does indeed turn out to be the final time he slips into a pair of Adamantium claws. “I really made the most of those last few weeks. I enjoyed every time I put the claws on. I nicked everything off the set, so Halloween, come to me and I’ll hook you up.”

In the meantime though, Jackman continues to heap praise on Days of Future Past. “I keep saying it’s like two movies in one, but with the size of it it’s really three in one,” he added. “It really is going to blow people away because of the story.

Well, you can’t fault his enthusiasm. Wolverine was a difficult role to pull off, and Jackman did so with aplomb, and it will be a sad day when he leaves the role for good, and it will be very difficult for someone new to take up the part standing in Jackman’s shadow.

More news as it develops. Days of Future Past is in theaters next summer.

Tiniest Bit of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Footage Leaks – WATCH NOW!

wolverine

My understanding is what we’ve got here is the same footage as what was screened in Hall H for FOX’s panel at SDCC, at least part of it. This very short clip, which appeared on YouTube earlier today only to be promptly pulled by FOX’s lawyers, then later uploaded to a more dubious video hosting site, is the very beginning of the footage screened at Comic Con.

Give the blurry, bald head of Charles Xavier a click in order to view the footage. Do it now! Before it’s taken down again! [Note: only click play, don’t bother installing whatever crap they try and trick you into.]

If you couldn’t make out the dialogue here’s a transcript,

Ian McKellen‘s Magneto: What’s the last thing you remember?

Patrick Stewart‘s Xavier: I had a glimpse into the past. (To Wolverine) You will have to do for me what I once did for you.

McKellen’s Magneto: You’ll need me as well… side-by-side to end this war… before it ever begins.

And cut, end of footage. There’s more to it, and it’s the entirety of the clip those at Comic Con and those at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal, where this bootleg comes from, had the fortune to see.

What we can glean from this measly 40 seconds is quite a bit, though. We see Rogue (Anna Paquin), Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page), Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) – now with beard! That’s how we know time’s past, guys. And of course, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. There’s the X-Mansion, upstairs and downstairs, and Cerebro. More exciting though, are the quick looks at Omar Sy as Bishop, Adan Canto as Sunspot, and Booboo Stewart as Warpath.

What else were you able to spot?

Where the footage goes from here has already been recapped repeatedly since Comic Con ended, but for a refresher here’s Screen Rant’s take.

Thanks to @pittsed_off for the tip to a working video!

Is Apocalypse Part of the Bigger Picture for ‘X-Men’ Movies?

apocalypse

It’s probably the worst kept secret, or at least one of them, that 20th Century Fox wants to create a similar shared universe feel for all their Marvel Comics properties as Marvel Studios has for theirs. Consider the sudden appearance of Thanos at the end of The Avengers, which will be followed up in next summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy, thus creating a universe-spanning bad guy for a universe-spanning series of films.

So the question becomes, can Fox do something similar, and if so, who could they do it with? How about Apocalypse, the mutant despot who’s thousands of years old and obsessed with his survival of the fittest mentality. If any of this sounds familiar, it’s because X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer was once questioned on the subject of Apocalypse appearing in that film and got pretty cryptic pretty quick when an interviewer got too close.

“I can’t tell you…” he said before clamming up. “This is how it gets started, when somebody starts piecing the little bits together….”

Adding fuel to that fire now is a website called Unleash The Fanboy, which quoted an unnamed Fox source in regards to any future appearance by Apocalypse in Days of Future Past or any other X-Men movie. Here’s the exchange:

This is what she said:
“He’s definitely a big part of Fox’s whole plan for a big X-Men universe with spin-off movies. The Avengers really is the template here”

Will he show up in Days Of Future Past?
“I won’t say too much about that. You’ll just have to wait and see”

“Want and see.” Which is exactly what your mom says when you ask her if you’re going to get a specific toy for Christmas. So can we take this to mean that Apocalypse will appear in someway shape or form in Days? We’ll see.

More news as it develops. X-Men: Days of Future Past comes out next summer.

Bryan Singer Tweets a New ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Teaser

daysoffuturepast

A couple of weeks ago, Bryan Singer announced the addition of Pietro Maximoff, aka Quicksilver (Evan Peters), to the mix in his upcoming movie X:Men: Days of Future Past. Fans were quick to wonder if Wanda Maximoff, the Scarlet Witch, would also appear. Now this latest tweet from Singer may not be a rock solid announcement, but it does clearly open the possibility that Wanda will make an appearance.

Kinda reminds me of this shot in X-Men: Last Stand,

What do you think? I expect we’ll at least get a glimpse of young Wanda, perhaps only in a framed photo on the wall or table when we get a look in the Maximoff home.
