First, a quick history: last year, Hugh Jackman himself said he would be in both X-Men: Apocalypse and The Wolverine 3. Then the actor said he would love to play Wolverine until he dies, if Fox would let him (pretty sure they would). And then he said The Wolverine 3 would be his final appearance as the clawed mutant hero, and he began acting coy about additional appearances in interviews. So, is he in X-Men: Apocalypse or not? We might have a legitimate answer now.

We’ve been hearing for some time now that Hugh Jackman will be reprising his role as Wolverine for cameo appearances in both Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse — because how can you have an X-Men movie without Wolverine? The actor has appeared in every X-Men film to date, so it makes sense. Jackman himself has finally addressed the rumors, but don’t expect a straightforward answer.

Last time Deadpool and Wolverine got together on the big screen, things didn’t turn out so great. The less said about that, the better. But the new Deadpool solo movie looks like it’s finally going to do the character justice, and if Ryan Reynolds gets his way, we’ll also get a little added bonus to help make up for that whole X-Men Origins: Wolverine thing. Oh, sorry, I said we weren’t going to talk about that.

On the master list of characters who deserve exhausting origin stories that go into every single detail about how they came to be, Peter Pan is somewhere near the very bottom. So we can get all smug and dismissive of the new Pan trailer, which has its fair share or eye-rolling moments, or we can get excited that director Joe Wright has a new film on the horizon and hope for the best.

‘The Wolverine 2’ Hires ‘Blade Runner 2’ Writer Michael Green

When the sequel to James Mangold’s The Wolverine was announced last year, writer David James Kelly was attached to the project. That appears to no longer be the case, as Fox has tapped Michael Green for screenwriting duties on the next chapter in our favorite furry mutant’s journey. It’s unclear whether Green will be starting over from scratch or simply delivering rewrites, but Fox is probably intent on really nailing this sequel, as it will be the last time we see Hugh Jackman portray the character on screen.

The trailers and images from Joe Wright’s Pan haven’t exactly inspired confidence in the upcoming prequel/origin story of everyone’s favorite lost boy (sorry, Kiefer Sutherland). Just about the only promising aspect is the involvement of Wright, who has a pretty great track record with previous films like Hanna and Atonement. But now Warner Bros. is giving us a little more time to get excited for the film by pushing the release date back by five months.

In case you had forgotten, there’s a new Peter Pan origin story hitting theaters this year, in which Hugh Jackman sports a questionable hair piece and even more questionable facial hair. To remind you, Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for the upcoming Pan, which comes from the beloved Joe Wright, the director of some movies you really enjoy, like Hanna and Atonement.

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are about to get themselves some of that faith-based drama money. Cha-ching. The duo are producing the upcoming biblical drama Apostle Paul, with Hugh Jackman signing on to star as the film’s titular protagonist, a man responsible for writing almost half of the books in the New Testament. In modern terms, yeah, he was kind of a big deal.

Recently, Hugh Jackman expressed a desire to continue playing Wolverine until he dies — or until Fox decides his time is up. It looks like that time is fast approaching, as Jackman himself has announced that The Wolverine 2 will be his final outing as the iconic X-Men character, although whether or not he’ll appear in X-Men: Apocalypse remains uncertain.
