‘Logan’ Official Synopsis Revealed

After the release of one of the greatest trailers of all time, we have only gotten tantalizing images for Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine. But thanks to Jackman, the film’s official synopsis has finally been revealed.

In the future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.

Unfortunately, the synopsis reveals nothing unknown but that’s a good thing. As we all know, marketing campaigns leave little to be discovered in the theater these days. As a second trailer for the film looms, my hope is that we get to go into this incredible looking film as cold as possible.

Logan hits theaters March 3, 2017.

The film stars Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant and Boyd Holbrook. Written by David James Kelly and Michael Green. Directed by James Mangold.

‘The Defenders’ Unite on EW Cover; First Look at Sigourney Weaver

Summer 2017 is already going to be one of the biggest summer movie seasons in history with epic blockbusters featuring superheroes, aliens, monsters, super intelligent apes, and even a war film to boot but the movie theater won’t be the only place to catch some ass-kicking entertainment. This week’s Entertainment Weekly cover story features the first behind the scenes look at Marvel’s The Defenders filming the first scene that features them all coming together and while the article doesn’t give us much information regarding the plot, it does confirm the series will debut on Netflix sometime during the summer.

The only bit of information we get from the article is that for at least the first half of the season the series will follow Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage separately. Marco Ramirez, showrunner for The Defenders told EW:

“Every one of them is following their own trail of bread crumbs, trying to unpack a mystery in New York. We wanted them all caught off guard. Once they’re in that room together, it’s kind of like, ‘Oh, s—, who are you?’”

It’s an interesting and fresh way to form the unlikely superhero team. These characters like to operate independently in the shadows of New York City and it will take a serious threat to unite the heroes (not for hire). While we still don’t know exactly what the threat is, EW teases the scene being filmed takes place at the offices at Midland Circle. The same location where Daredevil and Elektra discovered the giant hole in the ground in season two.

How the storyline for The Defenders will be connected to The Hand remains a mystery, however, we do know the main villain played by Sigourney Weaver will figure into that somehow. While her role is still a mystery, EW also has the exclusive first look at her character. Ramirez wouldn’t reveal anything concrete but offered some teases calling her an “utter badass,” and that:

“Sigourney is the kind of person you can buy as the smartest person in the room, who you can also buy as a person holding a flamethrower. Her character is a very powerful force in New York City. She’s everything Sigourney is: sophisticated, intellectual, dangerous.” 

The series will see the return of many cast members from the Netflix corner of the MCU including Elodie Yung (Elektra), Carrie-Anne Moss (Jeri Hogarth), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Eka Darville (Malcolm Ducasse), Scott Glenn (Stick), Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker) and Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing) who will be introduced in the upcoming Iron Fist series this March.

The Defenders stars Charlie Cox as Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, and Finn Jones as Iron Fist.

The Defenders hits Netflix sometime in the summer of 2017.

Tom Holland Confirms Spider-Man Will Appear in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Coming as no great surprise, the appearance of Spider-Man in Avengers: Infinity War has been confirmed by the actor behind the web-slinger himself, Tom Holland.

Tweets from twitter account TomHollandItaly reveal snapshots from an interview with Holland telling Vogue Magazine:

“It is they who convinced the Marvel (Downey and Evans) .. the producers wanted to be sure that I was the right person before you entrust three films over the next four years, including ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’”

The amount of Spider-Man in Infinity War is still unknown but after stealing the show in Captain America: Civil War, the character obviously gels incredibly well with the Avengers and it would be a mistake not to include him in what will undoubtedly be the biggest Marvel movie of all time. The film is currently rolling into production and slated to hit theaters May 4, 2018.

Gamora Confirmed to Appear in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Screen Shot 2017-01-09 at 5.13.34 PM.png

Last night at the Golden Globes, Zoe Saldana herself confirmed she would indeed appear as Gamora in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War while speaking with MTV News, however, the actress revealed she yet to see the script:

“I don’t know when they’re gonna let me read it. I mean, I’m not looking forward to the five hours of green make-up, but every time I finally arrive on set I feel so happy and lucky to be there.”

The film which isn’t due out until May 4, 2018, will undoubtedly be the biggest and most expensive Marvel film in history. At this point, the film is overflowing with characters and if it wasn’t for the fact that The Russo Brothers are at the helm I’d be worried. But the Russo’s already proved with Captain America: Civil War that they can jam pack a film full of superheroes and keep the film well balanced and focused while using each and every superhero effectively.
