Hugh Jackman Thinks Tom Hardy Could Replace Him As Wolverine

Tom Hardy in The Outsider

It doesn’t come as a complete surprise that Hugh Jackman will no longer be bearing those adamantium claws after the third and final Wolverine. The actor has stated that the final installment of the trilogy would be the last time he would play as the iconic X-Men character, which obviously means that Fox would need to find a suitable replacement when the next X-Men or Wolverine film comes around.

But because of the mutant’s slow aging ability as well as the fact that the franchise has introduced time-travel to their cinematic universe, the writer(s) could explain why the new Wolverine looks so different from the old one. And with the rumors that X-Men: Apocalypse and Wolverine 3 would bring an end to Bryan Singer’s X-Men universe, it’s a perfect time to find some new blood.

While on the press tour for Pan, Jackman was asked about who he thinks would be perfect as his replacement. According to him its Mad Max: Fury Road star Tom Hardy. More on the story below.

X-Men Apocalypse Header

The events of X-Men: Days of Future Past reset the X-Men film franchise’s timeline from the first trilogy to its Wolverine spinoffs. With Deadpool and Gambit now separate entities that exist in the same universe as the X-Men, there is a strong possibility that crossovers could happen — at least it’s more likely to happen than a crossover with the Fantastic Four.

X-Men writer and producer Simon Kinberg is over at the Toronto International Film Festival to help promote The Martian, and he teased such an idea, saying “there will be interplay between different characters in different movies.” Check out all of his comments on the possible crossover below.

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Will Have A Mutant Fight Club Says Bryan Singer

The first rule of Fight Club is that you don’t talk about Fight Club. But how could someone not break that rule when it involves mutants? In the many X-Men and Wolverine films we’ve seen, the mutants always seem to be at odds, with the human factor also posing a threat to peace between mutants and Homo sapiens. Each mutant conflict is almost always for the survival of humanity, but at times when we see Professor X and Magneto on opposing sides it’s for their respective ideology/

Now X-Men: Apocalypse will bring in a new fight to the mutants. A mutant fight club will be seen in the upcoming sequel according to director Bryan Singer. More on the story and images below.

X-Men / Fantastic Four Crossover “In Play” Says Bryan Singer

X-Men and Fantastic Four

Though Disney owns a majority of the Marvel properties, and is sharing Spider-Man with Sony, they don’t own the rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four. Those two belong to Fox.

While Disney and Marvel can expand on characters through films and televised series connecting them to the MCU, Fox doesn’t share that luxury, and are confined to their own universe. It only makes sense that they build their own version of the MCU using what they have, all culminating in a mega crossover event between the two superhero teams al a Marvel Studios’ The Avengers.

After a rousing panel at the San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, 20th Century Fox has released the first set of X-Men: Apocalypse images. The gallery features our first look at Oscar Isaac (who looks unrecognizable) at the titular villain (who looks more like Ivan Ooze), as well as the debut of Alexandra Shipp as Ororo Munroe aka Storm, and Olivia Munn as Betsy Baddrock aka Pyslocke. We also get a look at Magneto’s new armor, as well as the students of the Xavier’s school surrounding their teacher in a familiar place.

Conan X-Men Comic-Con

Conan has been at San Diego Comic-Con all week and and host Conan O’Brien has been working furiously (and also announced he would do it again next year!). Wednesday night’s guests were Elijah Wood and Chris Hardwick, after a Mad Max: Fury Road intro and some crazy Wolverine auditions. He hosted the cast of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 on Thursday night, and that was a blast. On Friday night, he hosted the ultimate fanboy’s dream: Danai Gurira, Steven Yeun, and Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead, and the cast of Game of Thrones.

I think he beat his Friday night guests when Doctor Who and the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse showed up.

Check out all the delicious videos below.

Bryan Singer director of X-Men: Days Of Future Past

The X-Men film universe has been more or less a 16-year narrative. Though there are loose connections, the franchise itself is pretty much self-contained that was put together by Bryan Singer. Now, a new rumor has surfaced that the universe, or at least Singer’s vision of it, will come to an end after X-Men: Apocalypse and the upcoming Wolverine 3.
