Mr. SInister

The X-Men: First Class films and The Wolverine have been tied together, with each of theme dropping an Easter egg that would lead up to a succeeding film by giving some sort of tip about a villain. That was no different in X-Men: Apocalypse where we saw a small nod to Nathaniel Essex, otherwise known to fans as Mr. Sinister. At the time it wasn’t clear if Mr. Sinister would appear in a future installment of X-Men or one of its spinoffs. The character has had run-ins with the X-Men, Wolverine, and even Deadpool before.

But now it has been confirmed that the vampire-looking mutant will appear in James Mangold‘s Wolverine 3. More on the story below.

Wolverine Old Man Logan

For a long time, there has been speculation that Wolverine 3 would have an R rating, following the huge box office success of Deadpool. There were also rumors that the final installment of the Wolverine franchise starring Hugh Jackman would be inspired by the “Old Man Logan” comic book storyline. Of course seeing how The Wolverine Uncut Edition was much more well-received than its theatrical cut may have had something to do with that decision as well.

Now with the X-Men: Apocalypse press tour underway, we are learning more about the future of the X-Men film franchise. In a recent interview, producer Simon Kinberg confirmed that the film will be Rated-R and hinted that the film’s plot will be inspired by “Old Man Logan” storyline. More on the story below.

Stephen Merchant Lip Sync Battle

Hugh Jackman has been playing the role of Wolverine for the past 16 years. The character is the face of the X-Men film franchise, having appeared in all of the films, cameo or otherwise. He even got his own titular spinoff. The actor will, of course, be reprising his role one final time in Wolverine 3. But aside from him, Patrick Stewart was the only other actor to have a role in the film. And now it is about to add some more.

Earlier this month Boyd Holbrook was cast as an original villain not known to the comics. Now according to new reports, Stephen Merchant and Richard E. Grant have been cast in the film. More on their roles below.

James Mangold to Direct Captain Nemo

After struggling through an early development process, it looks as though Disney’s reimagining of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, now called Captain Nemo, is back. The film was originally set to be directed by David Fincher. However, disagreements over the film’s budget and casting choice forced the two to part ways. As a result, the film was put on a production halt until a director could be found.

So after being stalled for the better part of three years, it seems that Disney has found a new director to be at the helm. According to a new report, James Mangold (Walk The Line, The Wolverine) has signed on to be the director of Captain Nemo. More on the story below.

Hugh Jackman ad Wolverine In X-Men: Days Of Future Past

In many ways, Deadpool proved that a rated R comic book movie could work and be a huge success at the box office. But given that a rated R movie is generally targeted for adults (or anyone over 17), it would be hard to at least make the same amount of box office coin as let’s say The Avengers or Guardians of the Galaxy. That’s not to say just because it’s a little watered down in terms of the language and violence it isn’t as good, but if you want to your film to be as successful, you have to make sure it appeals to the masses. So by making it PG-13, you are doing just that.

It’s easy to see why Guardians director James Gunn might be irate with some of the comments that have been made based on Deadpool‘s success, and it’s going to be no surprise at all to see studios try to copy the same formula. Seeing as the inevitable copying is close at hand, one has to wonder if Deadpool really is the exception to the rules.

But if you have watched James Mangold‘s uncut version of The Wolverine, then you have your answer. That film was better than its theatrical cut, according to fans. So based on Deadpool‘s success, it’s easy to see why Fox might be considering giving Wolverine 3 an R-rating. According to a new report, they are doing just that. Check out the full story below.
