When Logan finally fades to black, it brings Hugh Jackman’s 17-year run as Wolverine to a close. It is an emphatic and definitive ending, not just to Jackman’s Wolverine series, but also to the X-Men franchise as a whole.
Illyana Rasputin was Kitty Pryde's first true love, and you'll never convince me otherwise. Sure, Kitty had already expressed an interest in Illyana's brother Piotr (the gentle giant known as Colossus), but at the time that was more of a childhood crush. It was only later, after Kitty had become an adult without Piotr getting much older, that later writers decided that Kitty and Colossus had been "true love." Kitty's relationship with Illyana, meanwhile, was a close connection between two equals.
Rumors have swirled around the gestating production of New Mutants like so many Terrigen Mists since it was first announced around a year ago. We‘ve pinned down The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone as the hand on the steering wheel, he’s confirmed that The Witch starlet Anya Taylor-Joy will take one of the leading roles as Magik, and she’s confirmed that James McAvoy will reprise his role of the young Professor Charles Xavier. But even as the production’s projected spring start date rapidly approaches, little else is known for sure about this lower-profile superhero picture.
Anya Taylor-Joy has long been rumored for a role in Josh Boone’s New Mutants, one of Fox’s intriguing new additions to the X-Men franchise. Although Taylor-Joy — like rumored co-star Maisie Williams — can’t say with 100 percent certainty that she’s actually going to be in the movie, she can confirm someone who is: James McAvoy, her co-star in M. Night Shyamalan’s new psychological thriller, Split.
It may be a while before we see another sequel in the core X-Men film series, but Fox has a few exciting prospects to keep the franchise kicking along, including Logan, Deadpool 2 and, last but far from least, Josh Boone’s New Mutants spinoff. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the writer and director says he and co-writer Knate Gwaltney originally pitched the project as a trilogy — a concept that’s hardly far-fetched for a few reasons, not the least of which being that the studio kind of needs some new and engaging X-Men properties to keep things fresh. There’s only so many times you can reboot those guys.
The future was looking bright for the X-Men franchise after Bryan Singer revived it with First Class, but after this summer’s Apocalypse, it’ll take a lot to get the mutants back on their feet. The upcoming Wolverine solo joint Logan will see Hugh Jackman comb his hair into ears for one last ride, but after that it’s anyone’s game. Today, we hear there’s a new X-Men movie shooting sometime next spring, but which one is it?
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.
It looks like Fox’s long-developing New Mutants project is picking up a bit of steam, as the studio has hired The Fault in Our Stars duo Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber to write the screenplay for the X-Men spinoff. The pair will reunite with director Josh Boone for the film, which will follow a younger group of mutant outcasts as they cope with newfound powers.
Who are the greatest X-Men of all time? To mark the release of X-Men: Apocalypse, we came up with the ultimate list of the top 100 characters ever to wear the X as part of the extended family of Professor Charles Xavier's Westchester school. These are the very best heroes (and sometimes villains) in more than fifty years of stories about Marvel mutants fighting for a world that hates and fears them!
The final list was determined by a combination of our expert panel's rankings and our readers' votes, and as you might expect, the results offer an amazing selection of icons, powerhouses, and gorgeous freaks --- not to mention a few unexpectedly popular weirdoes. But it wouldn't be the X-Men without embracing the appeal of the weird.
Who are the greatest ever X-Men? We’re going to try to answer that question with your help, by putting the spotlight on different individual X-Men from across the franchise’s long history and pairing up your votes with the votes and opinions of our panel of highly opinionated X-Men fans. Your scores will be added to ours to determine the top 100 X-Men.
Today, we're going around some of the classic teams, with an original New Mutant, an X-Factor kid, and even an actual Evil Mutant (who later became an X-Factor regular). Plus, the most charming pink-haired mutant of them all, and one of the more troubling purple-haired ladies.
