Hugh Jackman gave an interview to Parade magazine and, well, here you go:

Give us a little scoop on the film.
You want to get me into trouble, don’t you? [laughs] Okay, the movie takes place after X-Men: The Last Stand. My character is at his lowest. He is supposed to be able to heal himself, but he may encounter someone who has worked out a way to really hurt him. And there is a cameo from one of the past X-Men in it.

There is already a rumor running around that Famke Jansson who played Jean Grey flew to Australia to film a cameo, a rumor which hasn’t been debunked yet by any parties. Could this be misdirection? Could, but not sure how as Jean’s character would make the most sense in regards to how much of an impact it would make on both Wolvie and the storyline of the franchise.

Should be interesting…

Mark Miller, the man in charge of Fox’s new X-Men movies, posted some stuff on his forum and ComicBookMovie broke it down… I’ve suddenly become very afraid and very confused….

1) He calls the The Wolverine amazing, akin to something David Lean would have made… David Lean, the man who gave us Lawrence of Arabia and Dr Zhivago… really? Miller is comparing a superhero movie with ninja’s to Lawrence of Arabia? … How?

2) First Class and Wolverine are ‘year one’ as far as he’s concerned… so why in the world is he letting Singer piecemeal and shoehorn Days of Future Past with the older movies? or is this truly going to be a reboot/retcon moment in DOFP?

3) He calls The Amazing Spider-Man a ‘misfire’, not bad, just a step backwards because it retold the origin again (which yeah, okay, they didn’t really need to retell the origin) but way to smack mouth Marvel Entertainment and Sony. That’s just bad form, not to mention tacky.

4) Then he praises Dark Knight Rises as one of the best films of 2012 while simultaneously insulting it, not just pointing out any niggly issues, outright insulting the movie and Nolan.

“It has it’s problems, especially Nolan’s reluctance to make Batman himself  especially interesting, and the pay off with Bane SO anticlimactic after such a  brilliant build up.”

5) His best film of 2012? The Grey aka Liam Nesson Punching Wolves… out of ALL the movies that came out in 2012…

It’s been announced via Twitter, Hugh Jackman will indeed be in Days of Future Past.

What does this mean for DOFP? Depends on how big of a role the man plays. I still think that Wolvie would be the best option for time traveler due to his ageless-ness, but at the same time I cringe at the thought of another Wolverine-centric movie (there are other mutants people).

Singer did X1 and X2 which were basically the Wolverine-Show with Some Other Guys… he obviously likes the character… let’s just hope that if Wolvie does get that central part this doesn’t mean the other characters will get side-lined. Wolvie can do his job, deliver the info, follow some orders, and let the rest of them do what they do best…

Going to try something new, unless there is a news article I really want to talk about or is just really big in its own right, then I’ll post some news round-ups which will allow me to not clutter as much and also include some articles I wouldn’t post individually anyway.

io9 – Marvel writer Dan Slott is getting death threats for the leaked ending of Spider-Man #700
some people take comics way to seriously… as the article points out, it’s a comic book, wait a dozen story arcs and whatever ticked you off will be retconned or rendered moot

ComicBookMovie – Jeph Loeb Reveals When We Should  Expect To See The First Episode Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Hint, it’s Fall 2013, to get it in with the new Marvel movies but before the new Avengers film, it’s also when my X-Men series starts!

as our future x-men and comic book movies are likely going to be influenced by how well The Hobbit and this experiment in 48fps does, thought it was both informative and relevant.

because you can draw this stuff on people, but real people can’t wear it…

ComicBookMovie – Next Year a Female Marvel Superhero Will Come Down With Cancer to Raise Awareness
Which leads to the question as to why this hasn’t happened before, and why don’t superheroes get sick as often as regular humans do? But yay for raising awareness.

I haven’t seen the video, computer issues, but the io9 people seem to think it’s good.

Apparently, The Mummy is getting rebooted in 2014 according to ComicBookMovie. It’s already got a director and he states it will be a modern gritty reboot and have nothing to do with the Brendan Fraser movies.

As much as I liked the Fraser movies, and as much as I loathe gritty reboots, I have to sign off on this one. For one, as it’s pointed out, The Mummy goes way back to Boris Karloff in 1932 which was in turn inspired by real events and a story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It was originally envisioned as a horror film, Fraser’s films made it a bit more family friendly and fun, so this new reboot will take it back to the horror genre proper with a more modern spin.

Now let’s just see if they can make a decent film.
