New Official Wolverine Images February 27th, 2008, posted by FofR

Empire have snagged up this picture, once again showing an angered Wolverine against a stone cold blue backdrop.

In other news, a Wolverine poster has been making the rounds on the blogs - this is however entirely fan created - I repeat - it is a fake, a very good one none the less:

Kevin Durand rumored to play The Blob February 23rd, 2008, posted by FofR

Neil Miller of Film School Rejects has sent us in their latest scoop. The blob, a character previously rumored to be in the latest Wolverine movie now has a potential actor to play him, Kevin Durand:

Our source inside the production tells us that Durand was “live-scanned” for The Blob a while ago, but has just officially signed on to the project in recent days. Word is that he will be heading up to his native Canada to shoot scenes for the film sometime next week.

Notably, these scenes are not being shot in New Zealand, suggesting that The Blob’s role may only be a minor one - or limited to a specific portion of the film. Though this is only speculation.

Barnell, John Wraith and Agent Zero Cast February 22nd, 2008, posted by FofR

We’ve got some more cast news for you, have you had enough yet? Variety report that the Black Eyed Peas front man Will.i.am (yes that’s his name) has gone from music to his first film role - playing John Wraith (aka Kestrel) - he has the power to teleport. And in a follow up article, they also confirm that Dominic Monaghan and Daniel Henney shall be playing Barnell Bohusk (aka Blackwing, Beak - with a humanoid bird form) and Agent Zero (aka David North, Maverick - with an ability to absorb kinetic energy from an impact without injury) respectively.

Monaghan will play Barnell, a mysterious character from Wolverine’s past who has the ability to manipulate energy and electricity [this is an odd description for such a distinctive character]. Henney will portray Agent Zero, a member of the Weapon X program and an expert tracker with lethal marksman skills.

Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool? February 19th, 2008, posted by FofR

Well, here’s yet another casting rumor. This time it comes via Aint it Cool, Ryan Reynolds to play Deadpool:

Well, today we can exclusively ask you… how about if Ryan Reynolds is playing [Deadpool]?

This one’s supposed to be a secret, but cat’s out of the bag now, Marvel. And I have to say… I think it sounds like fun. I know this has been a character you guys have been developing for years now (hell, I think I pitched a DEADPOOL film back in 2001), and Reynolds is absolutely the right guy for the job.

Taylor Kitsch as Gambit in Wolverine Movie? February 19th, 2008, posted by FofR

Casting rumors are all the rage these days it seems. Superherohype are reporting via a spurious “my friend is excited” message board post that Taylor Kitsch has been cast as Gambit. Personally I am sceptical, and a lot of websites are passing this around as fact, which it is not. One thing’s for sure, he’s a dead ringer for the character.
