The Fox era of X-Men comes to a lackluster end after almost 20 years as Dark Phoenix is a boring, lifeless rehash of prior X-Men movie plots and character motivations.
FX’s wonderfully trippy and endlessly creative X-Men series Legion is wrapping up with the third and final season in June as David Haller deals with the ramifications of his decisions in the previous season and his potential destiny that could end the world.
World War Z 2 is dead at Paramount, legendary actor Albert Finney passed away, The Walking Dead and The Simpsons renewed for more seasons, Legion will finally get an appearance from Professor X, Disney looking for a new Wolverine and more in this week’s News Shotgun.
Hugh Jackman is back for one last time as Wolverine in the upcoming Logan, where he and Professor X are some of the last remaining mutants but find a young girl named Laura who has powers similar to Logan and is being hunted by mercenaries working for a company called Transigen.
The final time Hugh Jackman will wield the claws finds Logan aka Wolverine in a future time when most of the other mutants are dead but he gets one last task from Professor X, which is to guard a young girl who is “very much like him”.
The world’s first and most powerful mutant, Apocalypse (Oscar Issac), arrives to wipe out humanity with the help of his Horsemen (Psylocke, Magneto, Storm and Angel) and the X-Men are the only ones who can try and stop him in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse.
Tons of TV news this week about new and revived shows, directors taking on and leaving projects and Seth MacFarlane says a Family Guy movie is basically inevitable in this week’s News Shotgun.
