Did Hugh Jackman Tease Character’s Classic Yellow Suit in the Upcoming Film?

Well it seems that big-time actor Hugh Jackman took to twitter recently to shake things up & give fans a little something to talk about in the weeks ahead until his final film outing as everyone’s favorite cigar chomping, claw wielding mutant in Logan, due out this March . .

Wolverine first appeared in Bryan Singer’s X-Men back in 2000, to which the team mostly suited up in black leather get-ups. That has largely been the case in subsequent movies too follow. But in a deleted scene from “The Wolverine” the yellow costume was seen in a box that was gifted to Logan as he departed Japan. So could Logan finally be where the suit shows up?

In the second trailer for Logan, we saw the young mutant X-23, played by Dafne Keen, holding an X-Men comic book. Outside of that being self-referential, it did provide some context that would make the yellow costume showing up in the movie less jarring and seemingly out of place. Since Logan is set in a not-too-distant future where most mutants have disappeared and the landscape is very bleak, a bright yellow superhero costume might not be appropriate.

So finally, here’s what the actor posted on his official Twitter page, featuring something that all X-Men fans can get behind. Given the very subtle way some things are teased these days, it seems possible that this could be a sign that the suit may make an appearance in Logan. If it really is the last time we see his version of Wolverine onscreen, that would be a fun thing to see and would serve as a great bit of fan service . . .

Upcoming X-Men Sequel To Focus On Quicksilver And Magneto!

Well it certainly seems that Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse is going to be jam-packed with Mutants old and new, but one particular fan favorite is going to get some special attention. Evan Peters, who plays Quicksilver in last year’s sequel, revealed some of the story will focus on the relationship between the super-speedster and his biological dad, which was only ever hinted at that Magneto is indeed Quicksilver’s father. When the two meet up again in next summer’s blockbuster sequel, their path’s will finally connect. Speaking with Details magazine, Peters had this to say about his part in the next upcoming film . .

“The story is that my character is searching for his father and really wants to find him. It starts from there and then he jumps on the X-Men train and gets sucked up in this whole, crazy Apocalypse madness: He joins in and tries to stop him from destroying the world basically.”

The mutant-speedster character, which is shared by both 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios cinematically, first made his debut in X-Men: Days of Future Past. When he learned of Magneto’s powers, he mentions that his mother “used to know” a man who could manipulate metal. It has been confirmed that in this corner of the Marvel Universe owned by Fox Studios, that Magneto is still Quicksilver’s father, despite Marvel Comic’s recent changing of the characters entire origins . . .

Wolverine To Appear In Upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse After All?

Recently during a 20th Century Fox presentation at 2015 Comic Con panel, X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer engaged in a somewhat cryptic conversation with actor Hugh Jackman, who still has not been confirmed for this latest installment. While the conversation certainly didn’t confirm a Wolverine cameo yet, it did hint that one may be possible. Journal de Montreal is now reporting that the director is assembling his cast in Montreal early next year for reshoots, and that Hugh Jackman may be on hand . .

It isn’t known what the production may have planned for Jackman’s ultimate appearance in the film, which events are set in the year 1983, ten years after the events of last year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. The rehoots are scheduled to take place in early 2016 in two separate Montreal studios for “a few weeks,” according to this report.

What’s interesting is Josh Helman has been confirmed to return as Col. Stryker in X-Men: Apocalypse. It’s possible this movie could show the origins of William Stryker getting Wolverine to participate in the Weapon X program which gave him his adamantium claws, but that hasn’t been confirmed. Regardless of what Hugh Jackman will be filming, it seems he will be back for his ninth X-Men movie somehow . . .

Director Reveals Juggernaut Was Almost In X-Men: Days Of Future Past!

HEADER - Trasnsparentspace barDuring an interview on the Empire Online podcast, original X-Men: Days of Futures Past director Matthew Vaughn went into full detail about how it was originally Juggernaut in the script that would have assisted in rescuing Magneto from maximum security prison & not the silver speedster Quicksilver as in the final film . . .

“I had Juggernaut being thrown out of a plane at 20,000 feet and using his head to go down a hole to get to the bottom of the White House to break into the prison.”

“I had Beast saying, I have a plan, and he says, What’s the plan? And they go higher and higher and Beast was going to go, This is it! and chuck him out the window. Then he smashed up the White House & finds Magneto.”space bar

As for the sequence moviegoers finally saw in the Bryan Singer film, Vaughn admitted that using Quicksilver was a much better decision, calling it the “best scene in the entire movie” and also adding that his version “would have made the movie much worse.”

In the end, having Juggernaut break Magneto out of prison in the way it was described wouldn’t have been nearly as true to the character or as fun to watch, but for those rapid fans out there, much of the X-film franchise has now been reset thanks to Wolverine’s time travel shenanigans, so there’s always a chance that we could see Juggernaut again someday . .
