First official image of Hugh Jackman as "Wolverine"!

Fox has released the first official image of Hugh Jackman in The Wolverine, the official sequel of the famous spin-character from the X-Men film series.

This sequel will focus on the relationship between Wolverine and Mariko, the daughter of a Japanese organized crime boss. The film, which also will include Will Yun Lee, Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee, will be released in theaters in Summer 2013. 

James Mangold will be directing and the whole film will have an Asian feel, perhaps like the martial arts movie – “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”

Check out the pic below and let us know if this sequel is one you’re excited for in 2013…

‘Deadpool’: the next ‘X-Men’ spinoff

'Deadpool': the next 'X-Men' spinoff

Twentieth Century Fox has begun development on “Deadpool,” an “X-Men” spinoff that will be crafted as a star vehicle for Ryan Reynolds, who played the character in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.”

The character is one of the most popular in Marvel Comics’ X-Men universe. Deadpool is Wade Wilson, a mercenary who, dying of cancer, submits himself to the Weapon X genetic alteration experiment and emerges as an indestructible semi-sane anti-hero. Reynolds seemed destined to play the character. In one reference in the Marvel Comics, Deadpool is described as a mix between “a Shar Pei and Ryan Reynolds.”

In one of the “Easter egg” endings of “Wolverine,” Deadpool is seen rising from the rubble and whispering “Shhh” to audiences.

The film will be produced by Lauren Shuler Donner and Marvel.

Fox is also in the formative stages of a “Wolverine” sequel that will encompass the samurai storyline that was hinted at as Wolverine sat in a bar in Japan as the film concluded.

Separately, Fox is developing “Magneto,” a film about the X-Men villain with a script by Sheldon Turner, and “X-Men: First Class,” which Josh Schwartz is penning.

Reynolds next stars with Sandra Bullock in the Anne Fletcher-directed “The Proposal,” which Disney releases June 19. He also completed the Kieran and Michele Mulroney-directed “Paper Man.”

Swine flu postpones ‘Wolverine’ release in Mexico

Swine flu postpones 'Wolverine' release in Mexico

A superhero is among the casualties of the deadly outbreak of swine influenza in Mexico City — the epicenter of the potential flu pandemic.

Twentieth Century Fox on Monday postponed Thursday’s opening of “X-Men Origin: Wolverine” because most of the capital’s theaters are likely to be closed.

A studio spokesman said a new launch date would be announced once Fox gets a better sense of when theaters will reopen.

Scores of screens owned by exhibitors Cinepolis, Cinemex, Cinemas Lumiere and Cinemark have gone dark, and the remaining chains and indies are expected to follow suit. Cinepolis is also shutting theaters in the states of Mexico and San Luis Potosi.

Cinemark and Cinemas Lumiere sites are closed until further notice, while others hope to reopen later this week depending on the situation.

The theaters are responding to a request from Mayor Marcelo Ebrard, who has also asked that other public places, such as bars and restaurants, close in an attempt to contain the outbreak that had claimed 150 lives by Monday. Schools and public transport have already shuttered.

Lemon Films co-prexy Fernando Rovzar expressed relief at having just wrapped shooting for Kuno Becker vehicle “La ultima muerte” last week.

“Films in theaters, whether they are in their first or 10th week, are suffering, and with them the distribution companies,” he said.

Spanish-language media titan Televisa is forging on with telenovela production but banning live audiences from shows that usually feature them. It is also allowing staff members to take leave to watch kids, who are staying home from school until at least May 6.

That said, sources at the conglom said execs are listening to government recommendations, and policies could shift day to day.

This wait-and-see attitude has gripped the capital of some 20 million people where the traffic on the normally congested streets has been cut by half, public places are no longer crowded, and many of those who venture out are wearing face masks.

New pictures from ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’!

New pictures from 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'!

I just got a hold of some new exclusive pics from ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’. These 4 pics reveal Sabretooth fighting one on one with Wolverine, Logan as a child mourning the death of a loved one, a shot of Gambit posing and Sabretooth running away or at something.

The film is being released May 1st and is including a plethora of new and established characters from Marvel’s X-Men comic books.

In case you ‘re not familiar with the film’s story line, Wolverine lives a mutant life, seeks revenge against Victor Creed (who will later become Sabertooth) for the death of his girlfriend, and ultimately ends up going through the mutant Weapon X program.

Below, enjoy the pics!

'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' clips to be revealed on network TV!

Beginning Sunday, Feb. 15, viewers across the nation can witness the origins of one of the year’s most anticipated movies, when Twentieth Century Fox debuts an exclusive, three-part reveal of X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, the first chapter in the X-Men saga, on FOX. 

For this unprecedented promotional event – which is too big for one night – the studio has created three special 60-second spots that will air over the course of three nights on FOX.  Together, with one spot leading into the next, the spots will form a narrative revealing the origins of Wolverine, and the epic revolution that pits him and other legends of the X-Men universe against powerful forces determined to eliminate them.

The first spot will air Sunday, Feb. 15 during “Family Guy” (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT); the second on Monday, Feb. 16 during “House” (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT); and the third will air Tuesday, Feb. 17 during “American Idol” (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
