James Mangold Cut a ‘Powerful’ Jean Grey Scene from ‘Logan’

Logan Hugh Jackman
20th Century Fox

When you learn about writing, there’s one mantra that you’ll hear over and over: Kill your darlings. Sometimes, the only way to make a scene in a book or a paragraph in an article work best is to take out the part of it you love the most, just because hanging onto it isn’t worth the clunkiness it creates. The same is true for film, and oftentimes directors will have to take out really great scenes because they don’t work with the flow of the rest of the movie. Logan is pretty seamlessly put together, but even James Mangold ran into that problem once or twice. He revealed that there was a tribute to Wolverine’s fellow X-Man Jean Grey in the middle of the movie that he had to cut for story reasons. [Some SPOILERS follow for Logan, so if you haven’t seen it yet, run far away.

What You Might Have Missed In Marvel’s May 2017 Solicitations

Marvel Comics
Marvel Comics

Every month, comic publishers release their solicitation announcements to provide information to readers and retailers on comics that are coming out in three months’ time, but there’s so much information dropped at once that a lot can slip through the cracks.

This month in Marvel's May solicitations there's costume drama for Daredevil and some shocking returns, but a lot of comics just don't seem to be coming back, with little or no notice from Marvel.

Fantastic Five: Marvel Deaths

marvel deaths

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

There's nothing fun about the topic, but death is unquestionably a huge part of superhero comics, and this week we're looking at five of the deaths that had the most profound effect on the Marvel Universe.

Costume Drama: Reimagining The Original X-Men, Again

xcostume_featured

Welcome to Costume Drama, where we turn a critical eye toward superhero outfits and evaluate both the aesthetics and the social issues that often underlie them.

For this installment I'm looking at five characters who've been redesigned as a group more than perhaps any other team: Cyclops, Jean Grey, Iceman, Angel and Beast, the original founding members of the X-Men. In particular, I want to look at the costumes that the teenage versions of these characters have worn since they traveled to the present in Brian Michael Bendis and Stuart Immonen's All-New X-Men.

Weapons, Generations, Blue And Gold: What’s Up With Marvel’s ‘ResurrXion’ Teasers?

res_featured

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.

Nothing Can Stop the Juggernaut Except Maybe All These Marvel Legends X-Men Figures [Review]

Marvel Legends X-Men - Juggernaut Build-a-Figure Series

It's been a long time since the Marvel Legends toy line has dabbled with the likes of the X-Men. There have been a few lines here and there, but the frequency of Avengers and Spider-Man series has drowned out the past efforts rather loudly. This most recent wave of figures bodes well for the future of X-Men at Hasbro though. The last time we saw the X-Men, it was a smaller set with a Build-a-Jubilee available only at Toys 'R Us. This wave is available everywhere, and it's huge.

I don't just mean there are a lot of figures --- there are eight in total --- I mean it's physically massive. That's thanks in part to the Build-a-Figure being Juggernaut, who is among the biggest BAFs offered in the line. Still, eight figures is about as big as a collections in the Marvel Legends line get, but it's hard to be disappointed when the roster is as strong as this one.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

Complementing our countdown of the Five Best Face Turns from a few weeks ago, this week we're counting down the five best (or, to be honest, sometimes worst), most shocking, and most devastating instances of a character turning bad or revealing themselves to have been bad all along.

You’re a Marvel, Marvel Girl: The Best Jean Grey Fan Art Ever

Paul Renaud

Whether your first Jean was the Marvel Girl in her green gogo dress, the Phoenix (who we were later told wasn't Jean, but let's be real it was basically Jean), the hyper competent blue-headsock-wearing Jean of the '90s comic and cartoon, or the cool black leather Jean of the turn of the Century (whether drawn by Frank Quitely or played by Famke Janssen) --- it's hard not to be excited about this next era of the character.

To celebrate that, we've put together some of the best Jean Grey fan art on the web. Some of it looks like Sophie Turner, some of it features various looks from the comics, and some of it is entirely new. Phoenix, Marvel Girl, or just going by Jean, she's one of the first ladies of Marvel Comics as well as one of the most powerful, and this artwork celebrates that.
