Logan Blu Ray details announced 

20th Century Fox have announced a home-entertainment release date, for the critically acclaimed Logan, which is set to hit 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on May 23rd in North America and July 10th in the UK. It will also include a black and white version of the film, in the bonus features. 

You can order Logan via Amazon.

Sir Patrick Stewart (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Star Trek: The Next Generation), Stephen Merchant (Hello Ladies, The Office), Boyd Holbrook (Narcos) and newcomer Dafne Keen join Jackman in the iconic character’s final chapter, directed by James Mangold (The Wolverine, Walk the Line). 

Mangold brings a visceral and gritty realism to the story, based on one of Marvel Comics’ most popular characters. In the near future, a weary Logan (Hugh Jackman) cares for an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart) in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are upended when a young mutant (Dafne Keen) arrives, being pursued by dark forces.

In addition to the version seen in cinemas, the 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray contain a slick monochrome version of the film, entitled Logan Noir, giving the acclaimed story an all-new look.  Special features also include nearly 90 minutes of original content, comprising deleted scenes and a behind-the-scenes documentary to immerse fans into the process of bringing Logan’s final ride to life.

Special features for the 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray include:

* Logan Noir – black and white version of the film

* Audio commentary by Director James Mangold

* Deleted scenes with optional audio commentary by James Mangold (DVD and Blu-ray™ only)

Stephen Merchant cast in Wolverine 3

We all know that Hugh Jackman will be reprising his role as Wolverine, in Wolverine 3. But what nobody knew, is that Stephen Merchant will also be in the movie.

Deadline broke news of Merchant’s casting, this morning. The role he’s playing has yet to be revealed, but I imagine given his comedic background, he will probably be some sort of comic relief.

The actor confirmed the news, by posting a video of him having his head shaved, on Instagram.

James Mangold is returning to direct and David James Kelly, is writing the script. Hugh Jackman has previously hinted, that the film will be inspired by the “Old Man Logan” range of comics, which follows an elderly, now-retired Wolverine on a road trip, with Hawkeye across a dystopian future. As Marvel own the rights to Hawkeye, it’s thought that Professor X will be replacing him.

Merchant got his big break, when he collaborated on The Office with Ricky Gervais. The pair then worked together on Extras, The Ricky Gervais Show, and Life’s Too Short. But recently the pair seperated creatively.


If Merchant’s casting seems a little strange, just remember in 1999, we heard a 6ft 2″ Australian, whom had only done musical theatre, would be playing the role of 5ft 4″ Canadian, Wolverine. The news did not go down well with X-Men fans.
Wolverine 3 will be Jackman’s last outing as the mutant anti-hero, Jackman has appeared in every X-Men film since the original in 2000, except of course for Deadpool.

Wolverine 3 scheduled for relaese in March  2017.
