Lauren Shuler Donner On The Future Of ‘Deadpool’ and The Rest Of Fox’s ‘X-Men’ Franchises Under Disney

Deadpool 2 Trailer

Last year, the Department of Justice approved The Walt Disney Company’s $71 billion offer to acquire Fox’s entertainment assets, including television and film properties. The news was a cause for celebration for Marvel fans as the move meant that X-Men and Fantastic Four characters would finally be able to play in the Marvel Studios sandbox.

However, this also meant that the current X-Men franchise, including its many spinoffs like Deadpool and the yet-to-be-released The New Mutants, was in serious jeopardy of no longer continuing or being rebooted. Deadpool, a raunchy superhero with a debaucherous behavior, doesn’t quite fit into what Disney has done with the MCU and the family friendly films they release.

Long-time X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner spoke about passing the franchise to their new owners, Disney. She also addressed its future, as well as the future of Deadpool and when The New Mutants will be released. More on the report below.

‘Logan’ Tries To Lure Moviegoers Away From Seeing ‘Beauty and The Beast’

Logan

Disney’s live-action adaptation of their animated classic Beauty and the Beast is set to arrive in theaters tomorrow. As the title clearly states, that movie has a beast in it.

Logan was released a couple of weeks ago, and has done darn well at the box office, making $457.8 million worldwide so far. That movie also has a beast in it. And that beast still has some fight in it. Instead of sitting back, enjoying the success it has had, and appreciating whatever it does at the box office moving forward, Logan has decided to try to lure some moviegoers away from seeing Beauty and the Beast and into theaters showing the latest Wolverine movie instead.

This strategy comes in the form of a brief but effective TV spot, which you can check out below.

Why ‘Logan’ Was The Perfect X-Men Epilogue and More Than A Comic Book Movie

Logan Wolverine movie

For me, this is a hard article to write. What was going to be simply a slightly biased glowing review of the new Wolverine film Logan became something more in my mind. Of course I loved the movie and highly recommend seeing it, but the reasoning for that was something I felt deserved a more little more exposition.

A little background on my love of the Wolverine character: The first comic book I bought with my own allowance was a Wolverine comic. I grew up as a teen in the 90s and for me, the X-Men cartoon on Fox was a main staple of my Saturday mornings. It was why I got up early. Out of all the teenage mutant characters to identify with as a teenager, the one that was my favorite was of course Wolverine. He was an anti-hero for anti-heroes. Moody, irritable, hairy… all good reasons for me to love the guy, but not to mention that he was nearly unstoppable. Wolverine was one of the few characters universally feared it seemed. I wanted to be that guy. Villain and hero alike respected Logan. There is little to wonder why he became the biggest part of the X-Men universe. So back to my point. With the film Logan, it isn’t just director James Mangold honoring the end of Hugh Jackman‘s portrayal of Weapon X. No, Mangold is saying goodbye to the entire X-Men universe from 2000.

Movie Review: Logan

Logan Wolverine movie

Logan
Written by Scott Frank, James Mangold, Michael Green
Directed by James Mangold
Starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant
20th Century Fox
Release date: March 3, 2017

For some it’s Batman, for other’s Spider-Man. For me, it’s always been Wolverine. For more than two-thirds of my life, the crazed Canadian with berserker rage, healing powers, and adamantium-coated claws has been MY hero. I’m a die-hard fan of the University of Michigan for no other reason than their team name. I am constantly drawn to anti-hero characters in both film and literature. And I have a penchant for growing scruffy beards and calling people “bub”… okay, that last part is a stretch, I called my grandmother “Bub.” I am such a Wolverine fan, that I convinced myself that X-Men Origins: Wolverine was good the first time I saw it. Talk about denial! Last night, I took my son and nephew to see Logan, a late show on an opening Friday. Me, there like a fanboy wearing my Wolverine #1 comic book t-shirt. All I can say is that when your expectations for a film are at a fever pitch, and the film not only lives up to, but surpasses them, it is a truly special feeling.

‘Logan’s Dark Tone Worried 20th Century Fox Execs

Wolverine Logan

At some point, the X-Men franchise needed to take a gamble. On the surface, Deadpool was risky. But the film turned out to be such a huge success, it gave Twentieth Century Fox the confidence they needed to approve of James Mangold‘s Logan, the first R-rated Wolverine film to be released theatrically. Releasing a third installment of the Wolverine franchise was always a part of the studio’s plan. So in order to give Hugh Jackman a proper send-off, Mangold wanted the film to be deeply personal. Based on what we have seen throughout the marketing campaign, it looks like he accomplished that goal.

But that isn’t to say that the new direction didn’t worry studio execs. In fact, some were concerned about the film’s tonal shift. More on the story below.

Hugh Jackman Explains Why ‘Logan’ Is In A “Slightly Different Universe”

Logan

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.

Check out what the both of them had to say below.

Latest Wolverine Movie Logan

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.

Logan

Hugh Jackman has made it no secret that he intends to put away his adamantium claws for good after Logan, the third installment of the Wolverine X-Men spinoff franchise. The actor has played the character in a total of nine films over the past seventeen years. That’s some major dedication. So while the end is inevitable, there was some hope that he would reconsider, especially since there was a rumor that Deadpool was going to cameo in Logan. Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds and Logan director James Mangold were quick to shoot those rumors down, but Reynolds and Jackman have enjoyed throwing social media jabs at each other, that the two sharing the same screen would make for a great movie.

Now new interviews with the actors reveal that there is a very slim chance that it could happen. Check out what Reynolds and Jackman had to say below.

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!).
