Ding-Dong! WOLVERINE Calling

Hugh Jackman was apparently slated to do a bad economy comedy called Avon Man for 20th Century Fox, featuring a group of unemployed men who make ends meet selling cosmetics door-to-door. Deadline reports that he's not doing the movie because he's too busy gearing up for X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2.

The actor plans to spend his autumn months in physical training, bulking back up to a superhero physique. Even though Wolverine 2 lacks a director, the fact that Jackman is committed to undergoing the physical changes for the role indicates that Fox is committed to putting the movie into production early 2011. Presently the film has a script from Christopher McQuarrie detailing Logan's journeys in Japan and his samurai phase.

It's interesting that Fox will then essentially have two back-to-back X-Men movies, with principal photography on X-Men: First Class wrapping right around the time Wolverine 2 starts up.

The actor may do one movie in between Real Steel and Wolverine 2.

 

 

Oliver Platt Joins X-MEN: FIRST CLASS

Deadline broke the news yesterday that Oliver Platt is also among the cast of Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class movie. From the sound of it, Platt will apparently be playing some kind non-mutant who is referred to as "The Man in Black." We're guessing he's our hate-mongering bureaucrat of the film.

Platt joins the confirmed cast of James McAvoy as Professor X, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Alice Eve as Emma Frost, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Caleb Landry Jones as Banshee, Lucas Till as Havoc, Edi Gathegi as Darwin, Kevin Bacon in the villain role (which remains mysterious). Recent casting reports indicate that Rose Byrne is playing Moira MacTaggert and Jason Flemyng is playing Azazel.

For all the casting buzz, we still seem to be lacking our Cyclops and Marvel Girl. Vaughn has recently said that the movie fits with existing film continuity, so presumably it will not feature Iceman and Angel, who were charter students in comic book canon, but later-day X-Men in the movie storyline.

The movie is slated to role cameras this month in London.

 

 

C2F Quick Hits

  • Actor Cary Elwes related to Empire Online a funny story about how he landed a role in the film Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn, based on his childhood favorite comics.
  • David Fincher told MTV Splash Page that he's still working to get a new, animated Heavy Metal movie going. It would be an anthology of short, animated sci fi films from various heavyweight directors, only now plans are for it to be in 3D. Given that it's an R-rated movie, Fincher says it has been a tough sell with studios.
  • Thanks to AntoBlueberry for the submission.

DYLAN DOG: DEAD OF NIGHT Trailer Online

A first trailer of sorts for Dylan Dog: Dead of Night has hit the web over at Trailer Addict.

We suspect this is a sales trailer that the film's producers have been using to attract distributors via the various market shows. The reel talks about the movie being in "post production" which is not something you'd seen on a trailer targeted at movie-goers. It also uses the old title (sans the "Dylan Dog" prefix, which was added way back in early May) so this reel may be a bit dated.

We'd encourage fans to ignore the cheesy voice-over work and song choice, and expect the first official trailer to look quite a bit more polished than this one. For our own part, we dug the brass knuckles and find ourselves fully on-board with the notion that Brandon Routh will have life after Superman.

Thanks to AntoBlueberry for the submission.

Wolverine 2: I think Fox is trying to go the route of Marvel studios showing their comic hero movies in theaters around the same time with X-men also coming out. Hope they get a "gritty and real" style director for this.  That would improve on the last one.

Xmen: First Class: Everyone seems to really want to pile on the hatred for this project because they didn't like X3 (or maybe any of the past X-films). But I like the director and it is telling a completely new story from the previous and I remain positive this will be something good. I await a trailer for better judgment.

Dylan Dog: I know nothing of the comic and maybe its the rough edges on this promo trailer but I'm unimpressed by this. It looks like either a SyFy low-budget movie of the week or a pilot for a SyFy TV series. Does not look major theatrical motion picture.

I'm looking forward to X-Men: First Class at this point. Although I still don't understand where they're going with the movie, I do like the cast. My trepidation about the movie lies more with the studio than anything else. Fox has shown with X3, Wolverine and the Fantastic Four movies that it's more concerned with dollar signs than quality. I even remember the studio head saying a lot of derogatory comments about the fan base for these films. I'm hoping that Singer's return to the franchise will help.

Wolverine was one of the most mediocre big-budget summer movies I have seen in the last few years. I'm hoping we get a better second movie. If the movie is truly going to revolve around Logan's Japan adventures, it does need to be darker and grittier. The movie should start with Wolverine as "Patch" in Madripoor having a beer with an old buddy talking about lost love. That would be a great way to start the film.

I really don't care much for these motion comics Marvel's pumping out.

Dead of Night looks good in a Evil Dead sort of way.   

Tomar Re looks, well, like Tomar Re.  I want to see an image of the Guardians.  Probably could use the same actors who were the Oompa Loompas, they had huge heads.

Hugh Jackman buffing up for Wolverine?  Ok.  Are fans buffing up for Wolverine?

Extremis should be pretty Extreme.  Apparently, Iron Man is Marvel's buzz boy right now.

I like what I saw from Dylan Dog. Now I'm interested, hope it gets a theatrical release unlike Somon Kane

I hate what Singer did with the X-Men but that's not to say that I didn't enjoy the films to some degree. But when he effed up the roster from the start, the leadership of the team and the disrespect towards Cyclops just to name a few things it makes it hard to forgive him. And the fact that they didn't just reboot the franchise to get it right still irks me. I understand they want to keep this storyline going so it don't conflict with Wolverine and what's already been set in the movies as to not confuse the non-comic reading public but that just makes me want to hate on Singer even more. Having said all that I have remained optimistic about First Class since the damage has already been done and now I just need to learn to accept it :(

Green Lantern is looking really good and pretty faithful. I wonder if the genral audience will be able to accept all the different aliens that make up the GL Corps. This is extreme sci/fi in that respect and I for one I'm glad they seem to be embracing the source material and hope non-comic book fans can embrace it as well

Dylan Dog looked pretty decent, as Amby says, in an Evil Dead sort of way. I'd like to see the final real trailer. Probably won't be great, but could be a fun rental or cable view.

First Class is gathering a pretty decent cast, but I'm still not overly jacked about the concept. Partially because of their choice of characters.  Azazel?  Granted, I've been out of things for a while in the comics world, but I've never even heard of him. I had to look him up. Nightcrawler's father?  I guess this movie will have him knocking up Mystique, so we can eventually have Kurt.  "The Man in Black"? What, is Johnny Cash a mutant? Darwin? I don't know...

Wolverine 2 worries me a little, too.  I liked Wolverine ok, but it definitely had a lot of room for improvement. I think the problem with most of these Fox productions is basically what wessmith said: they're too worried about making a slick, money-making movie, and not concerned with making a movie that's really about what makes these characters great to begin with. They ingore the source material in favor of satisfying the greatest number of mainstream test audiences, which may make for a big opening weekend, but ultimately alienates the core fanbase that will make the movie a success.

Five words...

Chris Nolan's "The Outside Man"

Ok this Dylan Dog movie looks like something I would watch on SyFy on saturday night. But I would watch it. Maybe it will go straight to dvd and I can pick it up at bestbuy for $4.99 or in that $5 bin at walmart.

VTGamehendge 8/17/2010 9:57:16 AM

Though I know nothing about the comic, I'm interested to see how Dylan Dog turns out.  I'm glad to see Brandon Routh back in a lead role.  I know Superman Returns wasn't all that great, but I thought he did a great job with the Superman character.

jfdavis 8/17/2010 10:53:14 AM

Tomar Re looks awesome.

X-Men- Thank you Rob for pointing out Vaughn claims to be sticking with movie continuity. I'm so tired of genre sites bitching Iceman and Angel haven't been cast yet...Like Xavier and Magneto, and Mystique for that matter, Cyclops and Jean have been in all three movies so, if I was a producer, I'd want the looks to match up as much as possible. That can't be easy...

Platt-If his name isn't code, he's probably a "behind the scenes," black ops, if you will, guy.   Maybe a Hellfire Club member. (Non-Inner Circle.)

Wolverine- So the story posted here is that Jackman isn't doing a film no one here cares about so he can focus on the next Wolverine movie? Just checking...  

fatpantz 8/17/2010 11:04:34 AM

Never read the comics, but Dylan Dog looks fun!  They arent going for serious, which is good and we all know Routh can pull off cheesy after his awesome part in Scott Pilgrim...I will check it out....but if they are going to put money into a PI undead investigator with a zombie sidekick, why oh why did they not go the route of Cal McDonald????

Oh and if Hollywood is listening to me cry for Steve Niles, then please someone, for the love of all that is Geeky.....someone adapt and film Brubaker's Criminal.

As for Wolverine....You know, for me disliking the Xmen flicks and absolutely hating Wolverine:Origins, mostly my dislike stems from idiotic changes to the characters (ie. Deadpool, Rogue, Lady Deathstike to name a few), I would actually look forward to a Wolverine movie written by Christopher McQuarrie...just think, a Wolverine movie with a plot, as long as the studios dont demand giant robot spiders and call for 50 rewrites!
