Hugh Jackman's final performance as mutant bad-ass Logan is coming in the third Wolverine solo film, but it looks like he'll be getting a hand from another X-Men cast member, Sir Patrick Stewart.

“There is a project in development. I understand that Professor Xavier will be making more than an appearance, however, and that intrigues me.”


The movie is reportedly exploring the Old-Man Logan storyline that's been popular in the comic books lately. Sir Patrick also seems to confirm that news.

“The idea of an old Wolverine – I’m really looking forward to Hugh Jackman getting old. You know, damn him. He looks so great! So I’m hoping to see him covered in prosthetics, you know? And then he’ll make me look better if that’s the case.”

The rumor mill can officially shut down production. Chris Pine is NOT playing Hal Jordan's Green Lantern in the DC universe. Instead, the Star Trek actor has signed on to a different DC franchise, Wonder Woman. Pine will be playing Steve Trevor, soldier and love interest to Wonder Woman's secret identity, Diana Prince. 



Hopefully they can stay on good terms. We'd hate to see such a good looking couple fell apart.

You may remember a couple weeks ago when Jon Bernthal was officially announced as The Punisher for Netflix's Daredevil, season 2. Well now another classic Marvel hero, Elektra appears to be joining the crew in Hell's Kitchen as well.

Played by Élodie Yung, Elektra is a trained assassin and former college girlfriend of Matt Murdock. She's also a long running romantic interest for the blind vigilante.



The Marvel Cinematic Universe on Netflix is getting bigger and bigger.


Another incarnation of Spider-Man is coming in 2017, and Marvel is sharing the creative control alongside Sony. With Tom Holland playing the youngest version of Peter Parker to date, this new Spidey will more than likely remain in High School for a while.

So, it's no surprise that Marvel is looking for a different kind of Aunt May. Variety is reporting that Marisa Tomei is the first choice, but is she too young? Let's do the math:

It looks like Tilda Swinton is beating out Morgan Freeman, Bill Nighy and Ken Watanabe for the role of The Ancient One, the mentor and ally of Stephen Strange. Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, is a former surgeon who after injuring his hands, discovers the supernatural world of magic and demons.

The Ancient One helps Strange become Earth's Sorcerer Supreme, and a prime candidate for The Avengers. While, The Ancient One has typically been portrayed as male, Tilda Swinton seems like the perfect choice to play an ethereal, immortal figure not of this world.

With Game of Thrones season 5 casting now over halfway over, it's the perfect time to receive some season 6 casting news. Lucky for you, that's exactly what Watchers on the Wall reported May 26.

This speculation may easily leak into spoiler territory, so be warned!

Seemingly, the most important news out of their reporting is the apparent casting of Randyll Tarly, otherwise known as Sam's dad. The listing describes the casting as: "Aged 50's to 60's, he's one of the greatest soldiers in Westeros- a humorless martinet, severe and intimidating. He demands martial discipline in the field and in his home."

For those that read the books, if that proves true, it highlights at least one of the plots that would come next year and the places the story will travel.

Here are the other castings Watchers on the Wall announces:

Pirate, man in his 40's to late 50's. He's "an infamous pirate who has terrorized seas all around the world. Cunning, ruthless, with a touch of madness." He's a dangerous-looking man. A very good part this season.

Mother, in her 50's. She's a sweet, plump, and adoring mother, and has a soft spot for one of her children who benefits from her decency.

Sister, in her early 20s. She's a kind, friendly and unpretentious woman.

Brother, in his early to mid-20's . Athletic, a good hunter, an excellent swordsman, manly, not particularly bright but the favourite child of the father.

Priest, in his 40's or 50's. A gruff ex-soldier who found religion. Now a no-nonsense rural priest who ministers to the poor of the countryside. He's salt-of-the-earth man who has weathered many battles.



What do you think, readers? Any more of those ring a bell?

Father Gabriel Stokes first met Rick's band in issue 65 of The Walking Dead comic series, and now he's coming to the show (played by actor Seth Gilliam). In the comics, Father Stokes survived the outbreak by turning away his own congregation, and now feels he must atone for that sin by preaching to the other survivors. There's a history of mistrust there.

How will he be different in the show? Is he part of the band of Terminus survivors? What do you think?
