It’s hard enough to figure out the X-Men film continuity without factoring in the First Class trilogy, and its attempt to reset the timeline with Days of Future Past. But with spinoffs like Wolverine and Deadpool existing within the same universe, the filmmakers have to be conscious of the events of other films. That may hinder the creative process for some, but for James Mangold‘s Logan, he is sidestepping all of that, so to speak, by creating an alternate timeline. While that may be confusing to some, Hugh Jackman believes Mangold had a very good reason for making that decision.
20th Century Fox has released a second trailer for Logan, the latest and said to be final (unless there’s a change of heart at some point) Wolverine movie starring Hugh Jackman in the title role.
The first trailer released in October focused mainly on Logan. This new trailer focuses more on the young girl we’ve seen hanging out with old man Logan and Professor X (Patrick Stewart). As Xavier says to Wolverine: “She’s like you. Very much like you.”

There’s no arguing that Deadpool was the breath of life that the X-Men film franchise so desperately needed. The self-depreciating humor and the constant jabs at the inconsistencies within the universe made us all laugh. So a cameo appearance from the Merc with the Mouth in a future X-Men film is practically inevitable.
Of course, if there had to be a film that Deadpool would like to appear in, it would obviously have to be Logan. And according to a new report, it looks like he may be getting his wish. A new report says that Ryan Reynolds will be making an appearance as Deadpool in the next Wolverine movie. But the actor and director James Mangold may have something else to say. Check out the full report below.
Starring alongside Jackman is Boyd Holbrook (Narcos, The Predator), Stephen Merchant (Hello Ladies, Life’s Too Short), Richard E. Grant (Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Game of Thrones), Elizabeth Rodriguez (Orange Is the New Black, Fear the Walking Dead), and Patrick Stewart (Star Trek, X-Men, American Dad!). We’ve also seen some images of some of these actors, which can be found right here.
