The director of 'Le Mans 66' and 'Logan' shares some of Martin Scorsese's comic book views, but thinks Marvel has become an easy target.
Eleven actress reveals she read for the role that went to Dafne Keen in Hugh Jackman's acclaimed X-Men swansong.
For a movie anchored by one of the most popular X-Men ever, Logan — Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine swan song — is hijacked by the littlest mutant of ’em all: Laura, aka X-23. Played by newcomer Dafne Keen, the pint-sized dynamo has been a fan favorite during her relatively short tenure in the comics, but Laura is an unknown quantity to mainstream moviegoers. With Logan opening in theaters this weekend, we thought we’d offer a brief introduction to the character of X-23 and how she might fit into the X-Men cinematic universe going forward.
‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ director Bryan Singer has revealed that he pitched the idea of introducing X-23 - “the female Wolverine" - into the ongoing X-Men series. As 'Apocalypse’ hits cinemas, featuring Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in his penultimate appearance as the character, Fox will naturally be looking for ways to replace him - and X-23 certainly represents one such way. Fandango discussed the upcoming 'X-Force’ spin-off with Singer, also asking him whether Fox had asked for his guidance in regard to replacing Jackman after his final foray as the character in 2017’s third Wolverine spin-off.
