'The Wolverine' was a vast improvement over 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine,' so naturally the critical success of the latest entry in the Wolverine film saga has everyone speculating on the possibility of further appearances from the berserker mutant in the franchise. While there have been rumors that star Hugh Jackman signed a multi-film deal to reprise his signature role, the actor is laughing them off.

With 'The Wolverine' currently in theaters, all eyes are on Marvel's indestructible X-Man and his iconic claws. Although the berserking mutant warrior has always appeared as a squat, hairy Canadian grump on the page and as an astoundingly fit, hairy Australian Hugh Jackman on the screen, the cosplay world doesn't care about boundaries. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the female Wolverine!

Arguably one of the most successful differences between James Mangold's 'The Wolverine' and Gavin Hood's flop of an 'X-Men Origins' tale was preventing the floodgate of various mutant appearances from diluting the story of Logan. The new character additions worked well, and aside from the post-credits scene, which saw the return of a couple familiar faces, Famke Janssen's Jean Grey was the only mutant from movies past. However, screenwriter Mark Bomback originally tried to squeeze in another well-known character into the film but ultimately scrapped the idea.

By now you’ve likely heard the rumor that Marvel is set to offer Hugh Jackman approximately $100 million to reprise his Wolverine character at least four more times beyond 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' We all love Hugh, and we all love Wolverine, but we’ve still got to ask: Is Jackman as Wolverine really worth that kind of money?

During the production of 'The Wolverine,' star Hugh Jackman constantly hinted that his time with the indestructible mutant superhero was coming to an end once he wraps the upcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' Of course, Fox wasn't going to let one of their most valuable commodities go without a fight, so the big question was how big of a check they were going to cut to try and keep Jackman.
Now, we have an idea and it's the kind of deal that will make your modest bank account roll over and weep.

Cyclops' Death Was One Mistake Bryan Singer Couldn't Fix With 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'

Remember when, in Brett Ratner's 'X-Men: The Last Stand,' Cyclops, himself being a mainstay in the 'X-Men' universe, met his end offscreen at the hands of a mentally unstable Phoenix/Jean Grey? Fans held on to the hope that he might still return to the big screen somehow in Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' especially after James Marsden was spotted flying back from the Montreal set with former co-star Halle Berry (playing Storm in the new movie). However, this was one event Singer could not change.

We've known for some time that 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' would feature the mutant-hunting Sentinel robots, since Fox creative consultant Mark Millar let the news slip back in February. Since then, Peter Dinklage has revealed he'll be playing the inventor of these insidious monsters in the film and a recent viral campaign has already started teasing them. But now, director Bryan Singer has shared an image that tells us two very cool things about the Sentinels as they'll be seen in the film. First, they actually built one for the movie. Second, they will be huge!
