    Fox Sets ‘Daredevil’ Reboot Writer To Pen The Next ‘Wolverine’ Film

    More and more, film studios are pulling a Babe Ruth: pointing at the upper deck and signaling where their would-be home run is going to fly once the bat connects (always assume the bat will connect of course).

    Marc Webb Won't Direct 'Spider-Man 4,' James Mangold To Shoot ‘Wolverine 2’ After ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ & More

    James Mangold To Direct Former Oliver Stone/Leonardo DiCaprio Project 'The Deep Blue Good-By'

    “I wasn’t even sure after the first [stand-alone] film if I would do another,” Hugh Jackman said about returning for another "The Wolverine" movie in the run-up to this summer's film. “I won’t say never, because I’m still loving it.

    While the idea of movies being spun-off and developed into TV shows seems to be a recent and growing trend, Harvey Weinstein had seen this coming years ago.

    The narrative for months before and during the making of the movie by James Mangold and Hugh Jackman, was a borderline campaign apology that read something like: “Please excuse the inexcusable ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine.’ We are starting over here. Please take this journey with us as we explore the W...

    How 'The Wolverine' Reflects the Problems With the Film Industry

    While frugal directors and producers working outside the Hollywood playing field relish in the schadenfreude, disoriented moguls perplexed by their current situation might want to spend the weekend contemplating it in the context of Hollywood's latest -- and mercifully watchable -- product, "The Wol...
