Hugh Jackman is preparing to hang up his adamantium claws and exit the X-Men franchise, with The Wolverine 2 serving as his official farewell to the iconic character. Many have wondered if Fox will be able to convince Jackman to stay a while longer, and if — or when — Wolverine will be re-cast, but a new rumor suggests an alternative could be in the works…if the implication of this recent casting call is correct, anyway.

Can a trailer spoil a film if the scenes in question are taken out of context? That’s been an ongoing debate among movie fans for some time, but here’s a new question: Can a trailer itself be spoiled? Well, if this X-Men: Apocalypse rumor is correct (and it probably is), then consider this post a spoiler for the new trailer, which will reportedly arrive online after it premieres this week at Cinema-Con in Las Vegas. The spoiler-sensitive among you should probably turn back now.

It’s a big day for the leading men of Netflix’s Narcos — following Pedro Pascal’s casting in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Boyd Holbrook has lined up a pretty major role in another 20th Century Fox franchise: The Wolverine 2. The actor will go head to head with Hugh Jackman, playing the main villain in Wolverine’s final big screen outing.

There were a lot of fake headlines and cutesy jokes floating around yesterday (April Fools’ Day, in case you were blissfully unaware), but you may have missed this one: Canada’s official library and archives released the personal journals and military records of one James “Logan” Howlett, better known to X-Men fans as Wolverine. Among the newly-”declassified” documents are some interesting facts about the famous mutant, including details on his time as a fur trader and a miner.

Hugh Jackman has been rumored to have a part — albeit probably small — in X-Men: Apocalypse for some time. Although the upcoming sequel to The Wolverine will be the actor’s final outing as the iconic X-Men character, there’s still a chance he could appear in Apocalypse, which closes out Bryan Singer’s current trilogy. In addition to maybe-sorta-kinda confirming Jackman’s part in Apocalypse, Singer talks the future of the franchise and his continued involvement in it.

With Deadpool, Fox successfully (like, really successfully — record-breaking-successfully) rebooted a character who had previously been horrifically adapted in another, lesser film, and they did so without recasting the role. Miracles do exist. Now that Ryan Reynolds’ Merc With a Mouth has been given a second cinematic life, could the same be done with another actor from X-Men Origins: Wolverine? Liev Schreiber, perhaps?

Following the record-breaking success of Deadpool, a rumor emerged that Fox was targeting an R rating for their sequel to The Wolverine, which would give Hugh Jackman’s mutant hero a proper, brutal sendoff. That rumor appears to be true, as a new report confirms that Fox is indeed aiming for an R, but it has nothing to do with Deadpool — allegedly.

The Deadpool Effect is now officially a thing. As many predicted and suspected following Deadpool’s surprising success at the box office this past weekend, movie studios would try to capitalize on the success of that film by making their superhero movies R-rated (ignoring the fact that that was just a very small part of why Deadpool was successful). Just this morning we brought you the news that the X-Force movie could be rated R and now comes word that Hugh Jackman’s still untitled final Wolverine movie (Wolverine 3? The Wolverine 2?) is being planned as an R-rated film.

Eddie the Eagle looks like it could be this generation's Cool Runnings, maybe, sort of — anyway, it looks charming as all get-out thanks to Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman, two actors who have charisma just seeping out of their pores. Although it's not a huge blockbuster movie with superheroes, it is a heartwarming sports dramedy, which makes Eddie the Eagle's new ad debuting during the Super Bowl sort of a no-brainer.

Aside from Hugh Jackman’s “Old Man Logan” tipoff during last year’s Comic-Con, we don’t know much about The Wolverine 2. Director James Mangold is returning to the helm of the upcoming sequel, which doesn’t yet have a formal title, though it is expected to hit theaters in 2017. According to a new report, we may be learning a lot more about Jackman’s final outing as the iconic X-Men character as filming is set to begin this spring.
