Marketing cycles for movies, especially for big summer blockbusters, are usually planned long in advance, with clear stages and expectations. But in 2013 there are at least two big, upcoming movies that are yet to really show their faces. The biggest absence thus far is "The Hangover Part III" which hasn't even shown a teaser trailer or poster yet, despite being set for release in three months. And coming in second, with a date set for five months away, is "The Wolverine." But you expect more soon. A lot more...

It may seem like the studios have forgotten they have some summer tentpoles to market, but just bear in a mind a few things. We're still in the midst of the awards season and the Sundance Film Festival just wrapped, so executives and marketing departments are temporarily preoccupied. Also, the Super Bowl is next weekend, and you can bet that it will be the launching pad for a half dozen major campaigns, so just sit tight. Until then, a few more images have arrived to tide you over.

With Oscar season coming in full swing right after the craziness that is the holiday movie season, you may not even realize that it’s now January and, at the moment, Hollywood’s current slate of releases is...kinda lame. Thankfully, Entertainment Weekly’s 2013 preview has given us a chance to get a good look at some of Hollywood’s biggest summer movies.

With the film due this summer, and still no trailer, the only thing we have to go by on "The Wolverine" thus far is a handful of images and quotes from a few interviews. Rumors of various characters from the "X-Men" films popping up have been percolating (Hugh Jackman has made the tease himself, with Famke Janssen's Jean Grey being the leading candidate), but we'll just have to wait and see. But director James Mangold did sit down recently with EW to talk about the movie, and shed a bit more light on the Logan we'll be seeing this time around.

After seeing their latest films open to massive Christmas Day box office returns, Hugh Jackman and Christoph Waltz have earned a brief respite from weeks of tirelessly plugging “Les Miserables” and “Django Unchained” on the national press circuit. However, that’s not to say those junket days yielded nothing, as the actors’ cameo comments on both the latest 'X-Men' and 'Muppet' movies prove just the intriguing opposite.

Listen Logan, we know things might be hard right now. Silver Samurai is out there, and aspects of your personal life may not be going so well, but this is a bit much. At least put on a jacket, you'll catch your death of cold.

"It's 100 percent undiluted Wolverine," director James Mangold (the very underrated "3:10 To Yuma") said in yesterday's Live Chat about 20th Century Fox's "The Wolverine." An interesting, surprisingly informative and thoughtful conversation between Mangold and his star Hugh Jackman, while the duo were in part-salesman mode -- letting the geek constituents hear what they wanted to hear -- the hopeful point of the discussion seemed to be selling fans on everything "The Wolverine" isn't.

Things in the movie world don't happen in a vacuum, and with James Mangold and Hugh Jackman taking part in an online Q&A today, followed by an unveiling of a new teaser poster for "The Wolverine," it's probably a safe bet some kind of teaser trailer will be dropping later this week. But you gotta start somewhere...

Jean Grey or not Jean Grey? That is the question. With rumors landing a few days ago that Famke Janssen shot a cameo in "The Wolverine," the presumption was that the film would precede the "X-Men" trilogy of pictures. But the answer to that presumption is an emphatic "no" from director James Mangold.

The big question around "The Wolverine" -- besides whether or not it will scrub "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" from our memory -- is it how it will or won't fit into the original "X-Men" trilogy or the new "X-Men: First Class" series. And now, we may have a clue.
