TO THE POWER OF X !
Two more mutant movies heading to the screen
DIRECTOR Doug Liman STARS Channing Tatum, Léa Seydoux
IT ’ S A BIRD, IT ’ S A PLANE It’s Fox’s X- universe expanding with a solo film for the fan fave Cajun mutant with the lethal poker hand. Pitched as a slinky heist caper rather than a trad superhero slamdown, it’s set amid the murk of the New Orleans underworld. SPECTRE’s Léa Seydoux plays Bella Donna Boudreaux, plasma- blasting daughter of the head of the Assassin’s Guild.
SECRET ORIGINS Veteran comic book X- scribe Chris Claremont wrote the original treatment.
SUPER POWER Edge Of Tomorrow and The Bourne Identity p roved D oug L iman can craft propulsive, imaginative action flicks.
WOLV ERINE 3
DIRECTOR James Mangold STARS Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart
RELEASED 2 March 2 017
IT ’ S A BIRD, IT ’ S A PLANE It’s the third – and, Hugh Jackman vows, in between pumping iron and necking raw chicken milkshakes – final adventure for the adamantium- enhanced hero. “I ’ve got three words for you guys: Old Man Logan,” teases the star, hinting that the film will riff on the dystopian comic book tale that saw Logan roaming a future ruled by supervillains.
SECRET ORIGINS Mangold first teamed with Jackman on
2001’ s romantic fantasy
Kate & Leopold.
SUPER POWER If Jackman’s really sheathing his claws then this cinematic last stand will be a legitimately buzz
