The film that [DARREN ARONOFSKY is] directing is officially called “The Wolverine,” and there won’t be a number attached to it.

…He referred to the movie as a “one-off,” and he emphasized that the film isn’t a sequel in any conventional sense.

‘X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE’ was utter shit but you really gotta hand it to HUGH JACKMAN. That he seems to love the character is of little doubt – and that’s a refreshing change of pace taking into consideration a Marvel property like HULK.

Bringing Aronofky on board shows that Jackman wants to make the Wolverine movie we all want to see. Now let’s see if they can deliver.

With Darren Aronofsky directing, [HUGH JACKMAN] says that Wolverine 2 will not be a “usual” X-Men movie:

“This is, hopefully for me, going to be out of the box. It’s going to be the best one, I hope.”

Also:

“Chris McQuarrie, who wrote THE USUAL SUSPECTS, has written the script, so that’ll give you a good clue [as to overall tone of the movie between screenwriter and director].”

James McAvoy (ATONEMENT, WANTED) has signed on to play a young Charles Xavier, aka Professor X, in “X-Men: First Class,” which Matthew Vaughn is directing for Fox.

Plot synopsis: X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, following the classic Marvel mythology, charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.”

BRYAN SINGER Will Produce ‘X-MEN: FIRST CLASS’ Instead Of Direct – Here’s Why

March 29, 2010

BRYAN SINGER

Following up on a previous post that said BRIAN SINGER would direct the next X-MEN movie franchise; ‘X-MEN: FIRST CLASS’:

[Brian] Singer and 20th Century Fox have formalized his move from director to producer on X-Men: First Class. That is the bad news for X-Men die-hards who love the first two films Singer directed. Here’s the good part: he is leaving because Fox liked the script that Jamie Moss wrote from Singer’s treatment so much that the studio wants the film right away, envisioning it as the first leg of a trilogy. The hope is to have it ready for 2011 release.

Singer will join Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg as producers. He’s not available because Warner Bros and Legendary are locked into a summer production start on Jack the Giant Killer. They’ll begin casting shortly. It is a big CG project, and they are likely to either shoot 3D or convert it later.

‘POWERS’ Comic Book In Development As FX Series – BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS Heavily Involved

January 25, 2010

Cover To 'POWERS' #1


Source: PremiumHollywood.com

FX’s President and General Manager, John Landgraf, has confirmed that a ‘POWERS’ pilot is in the works and that POWERS creator BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS is heavily involved. Also: Bendis’s collaborator is KEVIN FALLS who is best known for his work on JOURNEYMAN.

Read more HERE.

POWERS was a great ride during the dozen or so issues I picked up. Told from the perspective of two detectives who try to get to the bottom of the crime scenes they get called in to solve – which always involve super heroes. POWERS – if it stays true to the comic book and focuses on story and some mature themes – should annihilate HEROES.

Twentieth Century Fox has set Bryan Singer to direct “X-Men: First Class,” returning him to the franchise that began with the first two installments of the mutant series.

“This is the formative years of Xavier and Magneto, and the formation of the school and where there relationship took a wrong turn,” Singer said. “There is a romantic element, and some of the mutants from ‘X-Men’ will figure into the plot, though I don’t want to say which ones. There will be a lot of new mutants and a great villain.”

Gary Oldman just announced at the Warner Bros. Book of Eli panel that a third Batman film will go into production next year.

“I think the next Batman is next year,” he told a fan who asked about when the long-awaited “Dark Knight” follow-up would hit, “We start shooting next year. You didn’t hear that from me.”

Read more HERE.

Of course there’s always the possibility Oldman had heard the question a billion times and just gave it the “Sure, why not…” response. We heard this yesterday but wanted to make sure the rumor held before we passed it on. Pretty cool if it works out. THRALL WORLD is prepared to wait five years between Batman movies if necessary to uphold the standard director Christopher Nolan has brought to the franchise and comic book movies as a whole.
