The Wolverine Hugh Jackman
I’m a little worried about Hugh Jackman at the moment, frankly. Either his diet or the jetlag is getting to his head—he is crisscrossing the planet to promote the new X-Men movie after all. One week he’s all like, “I’m never going to play Wolverine again, 99% sure.” And then he flips and flops and flips and flops and has done so again.

X-Men: Days of Future Past
"X-Men: Days Of Future Past" drops in just a couple of weeks, and right now, the folks at Fox are spending a lot days of future planning for the franchise. "X-Men: Apocalypse" is already on deck for 2016, and "The Wolverine 2" continues to develop, even as Hugh Jackman plays forever coy about whether or not it's the last time he sports the mutton chops and fangs. But the studio is certainly hoping to make it easier on the actor who has to diet like crazy to get mad ripped to play Logan.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past, Wolverine
If you’ve thought of Hugh Jackman as the boy who cried Wolfverine, you’d have a point. The actor has said about a trillion times now (ok, two or three times) that this is it for him and “The Wolverine” role. He’s tired of taking cold showers to get angry and in-character for the role. He’s exhausted with the diet and workout he has to extend out for months (lots of all-boiled chicken and weights). Hugh Jackman doesn’t mind playing Wolverine, he’s just isn't a huge fan of the physical preparation it takes to play him.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past,
Such is the time we live in when franchises are no longer just about sequels or prequels. Spinoffs are the newest goldmine that studios are looking at, hoping to extend branding outward in a never ending reach of blockbuster moviemaking. "Cars" has begotten "Planes," Disney is already planning "Star Wars" standalone movies between the saga sequels, Sony is developing movies around the Spider-Man villains and now Fox are toying with the idea of individual X-Men movies. Because of course they are. But they've been here before.

Wolverine
More and more, film studios are pulling a Babe Ruth: pointing at the upper deck and signaling where their would-be home run is going to fly once the bat connects (always assume the bat will connect of course). While it’s bold flag-staking, this approach is in many ways anti-development and horse before the cart. And of course, it’s all business driven. Instead of the old days: “lets develop a sequel and when it’s ready, plan a release around it,” the new game plan is: “ok, we’ve given ourselves two years, the clock is ticking go.”

X-Men: Days Of Future Past, Wolverine
You better grab a drink and take a seat — Fox just set a batch of dates for the 2017/18 calendar, and they've got a very tentpole heavy future laid out. And while this is the part where we lament the state of the industry, frankly, it is what it is so let's just break down what they've got coming.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Marc Webb
Were it not for the encouragement of Sony chief Amy Pascal, Marc Webb revealed at SXSW last week, “The Amazing Spider-Man” and its upcoming two sequels would’ve passed right by the “(500) Days of Summer” director’s path as “the stupidest thing” he’d ever heard. As vibrant a studio playground as the Marvel franchise has been for Webb the last few years, we’ve been eager to see what he can do outside it, and now it appears he’s been having similar thoughts.

If you've ever wondered what a contract renegotiation sounds like, well these latest comments from Andrew Garfield should be a guide. Even though Sony has already spun a web of plans all the way through to "The Amazing Spider-Man 4," which has a release date set for May 4, 2018, to hear it from Andrew Garfield, he's not going to go the distance as Peter Parker.

If you needed any confirmation of Hugh Jackman's range of interests, all you have to do is look at the last three films that have all arrived in less than a year: the musical "Les Miserables," the comic tentpole "The Wolverine" and this fall's hit thriller "Prisoners." So of course, it's only natural the new talk around the actor revolves around another musical, and mysterious sci-fi comedy.

Hugh Jackman James Mangold The Wolverine
“I wasn’t even sure after the first [stand-alone] film if I would do another,” Hugh Jackman said about returning for another "The Wolverine" movie in the run-up to this summer's film. “I won’t say never, because I’m still loving it. But there would have to be a pretty compelling reason.” And while those compelling reasons are yet to be declared, it's probably a safe bet that the movie's $413 million worldwide haul—making it the second best performing X-Men movie ever—has something to do with it.
