3/31/15 Marvel News Mash-Up (Wolverine, Deadpool, MARVEL Show Coming to WDWNT)
Hugh Jackman Will Play “Wolverine” One Last Time
This week is very Fox/Marvel heavy.
Last week Hugh Jackman hinted that after his portrayal of Wolverine in “X-Men: Apocalypse,” his next Wolverine film would be his last Wolverine film.
James Mangold, who directed “The Wolverine,” basically confirmed that the next Wolverine will be the last time we see Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
I for one am going to miss Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. He has done an excellent job ever since he started playing the character back in 2000. He’s been playing Wolverine for 15 years? Wow! I think with each movie, he has gotten better portraying the character and you know that he has loads of respect for the character. Will miss him very much and hope that the last Wolverine movie will be “Old Man Logan.”
Come on Disney and Marvel, make friends with Fox like you did with Sony for Spider-Man. Fox is not going to be able to make a decent adaption of “Old Man Logan” without the assistance of Disney/Marvel loaning out some of their major characters to Fox. This movie can not be done without the Hulk. Period. End of sentence.
First Image Of Ryan Reynolds As “Deadpool”
And It looks great! I was beyond shocked when if first saw this image because one thing about Fox in regards to their Marvel super heroes, they dont like giving them costumes, well, definitely not those that mirror the comic book. Thank you Fox, or whoever made this choice, to go with something authenitc for a change. Hey Disney/Marvel, Captain America can still use some help with his costume.

WDWNT’s Newest Program “Nerd Alert” Debuts April 2nd At 10PM
It’s finally here! We have been working on this for a while, but now we have our first episode of “WDWNT: Nerd Alert” in the can and it will air this Thursday night at 10 PM which can be heard on WDWNT: On The Air. Our first episode will immediately follow “WDWNT: The Radio Show,” which will air from 8-10 PM.
I will host the show along with Patrick Hackett and Ron D’Anna. With Disney purchasing Marvel Entertainment in 2009, and then purchasing Star Wars and Lucasfilm in 2013, we realized that without a doubt we have a ton of subjects to talk about regarding those two franchises. Marvel and Star Wars will be our main focus but we also mention any important news made by DC/Warner Brothers and other comic book and sci-fi related production companies.
In our first episode, we will discuss in our news segment:
The latest “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” TV spot.
The Russo Brothers signing on to direct “Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2.
Star Wars Battlefront coming to next gen platforms and leaving old gen behind.
Our first Topic Of The Week will be “Our Top Ten Superhero Movies Of All Time.”
Finally our last segment will consist of us reading and answering listener emails.
Patrick, Ron and I hope you will join us this Thursday for the very first episode of “WDWNT: Nerd Alert!”
