Micro-News: X-Men Edition

Extended cut of The Wolverine will be in 2D not 3D as a few previous reports misled. The Wolverine is now the second highest grossing X-flick of all-time behind X-Men: The Last Stand. Plus, a small kernel of information about Wolverine's trip back to the past.


Are you looking forward to seeing the extended cut of The Wolverine when it's released on December 3? There was a lot of footage shown in tv spots that didn't make it into the theatrical cut of Mangold's film.

Continuing on The Wolverine front, the film has indeed become the second, highest-grossing X-Men film of all-time; behind one of the worst films in the franchise, X-Men: The Last Stand. In domestic gross, the film is the lowest grossing X-Men flick, possibly indicating that American audiences may be growing disinterested in that superhero franchise.

Hugh Jackman has gave some recent indication that X-Men: Days of Future Past may be his last outing as Wolverine. But he tells E! News that he still loves playing the character. Perhaps in a decade or so, Jackman will have the right look for Old Man Logan.

Hugh Jackman: "As excited as [the fans] are, I can tell you it'll exceed those expectations. I feel it's that good. I'm very, very excited about it, [Bryan Singer] has knocked it out of the park. He's like a best friend, Wolverine. He's the beginning of my career here in America and he's still there. It's been 14 years and I can't believe it. And I love the character. I love playing him and I'm probably loving him more than ever."

And a quick tidbit from the upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly, which contains the recent look at Magneto's (Michael Fassbender) new costume, another component of the plot is that Hugh Jackman doesn't have long to possess his younger self when he travels back in time. "[Wolverine's] on a ticking clock," is all Jackman would reveal. Why? Is the strain to great for Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page] and Professor X (Patrick Stewart)? Or are the last surviving X-Men facing an external threat that could sever Wolverine's link to the past?
