Earlier this month, X-Men fans were treated to Logan, a Wolverine movie … without Wolverine. A sort of adaptation of the comic Old Man Logan (although more in tone than plot), the movie imagines a future where mutants are nearly all dead, and a barely hanging on Logan is low-key doing chauffeur work to take care of a decrepit Charles Xavier. When some bad guys go after a young girl named Laura suddenly in Logan’s care, the ex X-Man takes a road trip to get her to safety --- while killing a lot of people who get in their way.’
While some are comparing Logan to Deadpool, the other R-rated film starring a Marvel hero from the past year, we should be looking at its similarities to another superhero film from 2017 instead; The Lego Batman Movie.
Since she crossed over to comics in 2003 from the underrated X-Men Evolution cartoon, Laura Kinney --- AKA X-23, Logan's female clone and surrogate daughter --- has become one of the most interesting characters in the Marvel Universe. A survivor in every sense of the word who moved on from her bioengineered origins as a weapon to become her own person, Laura has been the current Wolverine for almost two years now and, if there's any justice, she'll stay Wolverine forever.
Here, then, are eight songs that explore every facet of the All-New Wolverine's long and winding road from emotionless killer to the best there is at what she does.
The most jarring line in the new trailer for James Mangold’s increasingly buzzy Wolverine spinoff Logan comes when the gruff mutant informs his young charge, “This is the real world. People die.” He tells her this after seeing one of her vintage X-Men comic books, and informing her that the team’s actual exploits bear little resemblance to what’s on the page. It all sends a clear message: this is a film unlike the solo Wolverine pictures that came before it, distinctive both in its high stakes and self-awareness. It’s a sharply written moment, but the new clip doesn’t linger on it for too long before getting to the good stuff — in this instance, a young girl cutting off an adult man’s hands.
Those of us who were getting panicky about the absence of Wolverine from the ResurrXion announcements can all calm down a bit now. Marvel announced today that All-New Wolverine will continue with its current numbering while the rest of the X-line relaunches.
Tom Taylor is staying on as writer, with Leonard Kirk joining as series artist with issue #19, which also brings a cover redesign to match the branding of the ResurrXion books, as well as cover art by Adam Kubert and the beginning of a new story arc, "Immune." It's still weird that none of the X-Men team books feature Wolverine, but at least we know she's still going to be a part of the Marvel Universe.
After months and months of silence, the next Wolverine movie Logan is suddenly giving us new bits of informations by the day. We’ve learned that big bad Mister Sinister was confirmed a while back, and that Boyd Holbrook is playing Donald Pierce, the nefarious creator of the Reavers, relentless cyborgs engineered to hunt down mutants. Now, a new tidbit has surfaced: the name of the person whose hand is holding Hugh Jackman’s in the film’s official poster.
Mark Millar and John Romita Jr's original "Enemy of the State" story was a huge deal for Marvel in the early 2000s, as it brought the popular widescreen style to the main Marvel Universe and was one of the first "blockbuster" stories of the decade.
Next month, Laura Kinney --- the All-New Wolverine --- faces a similar trial of her own as she is manipulated and forced to become a killer once again in Tom Taylor and Nik Virella "Enemy of the State II". Ahead of the blockbuster sequel, Marvel has provided an early, unlettered look at the first issue of the storyline in All-New Wolverine #13.
The world of X-Men hosts an enormous roster of characters. Almost everyone has their own favorite mutant, but few have ever been as revered as the original Weapon X himself, Wolverine, or his clone daughter, Laura Kinney. The dual nature of their ferocious tenacity and cool demeanors make Logan and Laura interesting characters on the pages and in the cosplay community. Each has a massive array of looks and styles that cosplayers can bring to life.
Whether they go for the classic Uncanny look of Logan, his later blue and yellow, Kinney’s goth assassin garb, or even her more superheroic look, there’s a fantastic variety in these characters that anyone can enjoy. These are the best Wolverine and X-23 cosplays.
Back in 2013, Fox tapped Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow to script an X-Force movie, but Deadpool’s development put X-Force on the back burner, and the Merc With a Mouth’s record-breaking box office seems to have made the studio rethink their plans. Bryan Singer basically confirms as much, revealing that not only is Simon Kinberg currently working on a new X-Force screenplay, but that Singer himself pitched a female version of Wolverine — lending credence to recent rumors that X23 will appear in The Wolverine sequel.
