Funko recently announced a whole mess of Pop and Dorbz figures of classic X-Men characters, however, you may have noticed that one of the most popular X-Men was unusually underrepresented in that release. That's probably because he's a loner, and nobody can understand his pain. Wolverine always has his own comic (even when he's dead, somehow), always gets his own movies, and now he's getting his own announcement about his own Funko figures.

It may be difficult to believe in light of the 2016 election results, but there is other news still happening out there — even in the world of film, which offers a welcome distraction for many right now. And 20th Century Fox is serving up some pretty major news today, with a report that sheds light on the studio’s plans for the future of their expanding X-Men franchise, including Deadpool 3, X-Force and Gambit.
Ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?
That question, posed by Jack Nicholson's Joker in the 1989 Batman movie, comes across as an esoteric threat in that context; a destabilizing glimpse into the mind of a madman. Yet the exact same question asked by the X-Men character Nightcrawler would seem like an invitation to possibly the most romantic night of your life, and you'd probably be swept off your feet. If Nightcrawler is a devil, he makes it look good --- perhaps just as much as the Joker makes clowns look bad.
With Marvel's latest movie blockbuster Doctor Strange opening in theaters this coming week, this is the perfect time to explore the weirdness and wonder of the mystical corners of the Marvel Universe. For our latest fantasy draft, our writers must compete to put together the best superhero teams made up entirely of Marvel magical characters.
It's a good time to be an X-Men fan. It's seemed recently like Marvel's mutants were getting the short end of the merchandizing stick, in favor of a focus on the Marvel Studios movies star Avengers and attempts to make the Inhumans happen.
But now, with the upbeat ResurrXion on the horizon, that seems to be changing, and one step in that change is the introduction of a selection of classic X-Men character to Funko's line of Marvel collectibles.
Last week’s Logan trailer showed a very different vision of Marvel’s favorite mutant, about as far cry from an X-Men movie as we ever expected. If you feel the third Wolverine movie could use a bit more yellow spandex, however, check out this fan mash-up of the Logan trailer with Wolverine’s animated counterparts.
Even before it was announced we all knew it was coming, and now the climactic battle between mutants and inhumans is about to erupt in Inhumans vs X-Men #1 by Charles Soule, Jeff Lemire, and Leinil Yu. Check out a preview.
All week, Marvel has been taunting us on its official Twitter account with teasers labelled "ResurrXion," which reveal the titles for X-books that come after this winter's Inhumans Vs X-Men crossover. Marvel has confirmed to ComicsAlliance that these are all new ongoing series, but aside from an interview on Marvel.com with editors Mark Paniccia and Daniel Ketchum, the publisher hasn't said much else so far, and no creative teams have been revealed.
While we wait for more details, let's look at these teasers to get an idea of what's coming for the X-Men line in 2017.
Today, Fox Studios released the trailer for Logan, Hugh Jackman's final film portraying the surly Canadian mutant with a penchant for stabbing dudes. Amid the somber tone and the Johnny Cash, we got some real good looks at some of the villains, a group of men with robot limbs, led by Narcos star Boyd Holbrook.
For those not in the know, Holbrook is playing X-Men villain Donald Pierce, and his goons are a group called The Reavers. If X-Men continuity is too impenetrable for you and you've no clue what that means, we've set up a Crash Course to get you caught up.
He’s the best there is at what he does. And what he does is make gritty spinoff X-Men movies.
