Hugh Jackman Says ‘Logan’ Is In Different Universe Than ‘X-Men’ Movies

logan x-men movies different universe

Logan ain’t playing in the same playground as the X-Men movies, apparently. And fuck, with its wrought timeline and continuity, I say that’s a good thing. That way Logan can do its own thing, without attempting to kiss the ass of the convolution that preceded it.

Rumor: Taylor Swift has cameo in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ as Dazzler


Taylor Swift may make the impossible, possible. If she has a cameo as Dazzler in X-Men: Apocalypse, she will have condemned one of the raddest characters. I mean, it’s just a cameo. I mean, I’m exaggerating a bit. I mean, I’ll probably enjoy it. But fuck, fuck none the less.
