Logan Tag

Transmedia guru Jeff Gomez shared so many insider nuggets as our guest this past week. He even dropped the rumored FIRST Marvel/FOX film post merger. You won’t believe who’s in it and who will be playing the role of a certain Canadian-clawed mutant.

Spider-Man/Wolverine Crossover In The Works?

Will Hugh Jackman Reprise the role of Wolverine in a crossover with Tom Holland’s Spider-Man?

“The muscles were flexing to take these third and fourth tier characters and lift them,” Gomez revealed when asked how the Disney/Fox merger would impact the MCU going forward. “It’s going to be a little easier with X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool.”

But then Gomez dropped the “inside baseball” bombshell of exactly what the bigwigs at Disney were planning to unveil

“The big win is a Hugh Jackman Wolverine with Spider-Man. Why? Spider-Man is the number one superhero merchandise generator ever. So combining those two characters…and Hugh is willing to do it.”

There’s been some debate on Secrets of the Sire as to whether Hugh Jackman needs to hang up the claws. Co-hosts Michael Dolce and Hassan Godwin have debated back and forth whether this merger, combined with he storyline in Logan, is the perfect opportunity to cast someone new in Jackman’s iconic role. But Gomez revealed the thought of Jackman reprising the role is just too good an opportunity to pass up at this point.

“[Wolverine] will have to evolve into another actor at some point, but there are a number of opportunities in the [Marvel] cinematic universe [waiting] to happen.”

Hugh Jackman’s turn as Wolverine may not be over

“In the twilight of Fox they are doing interesting things with the franchises.”

We tackle all the #ComicBookMovie #OscarNoms including the shocking nom for Logan with our resident Transmedia guru Jeff Gomez.

Download the podcast in to find out more on this episode of Secrets of the Sire.

Segment 1: Logan
Logan has made waves for its nomination for Best Adaptive Screenplay, what does this mean for comic book movies to come. We are now entering “late stage” for Fox movies, how will that affect its future releases? And where does Wonder Woman fit into all this?

“If you were to go back and watch X-Men origins and Wolverine, and then I told you two movies later they’d be up for an Oscar? I’d say you’re joking” – Hassan

Segment 2: The Oscars
How does the age of the academy influence voting? Are we into a new generation of voters? Do social movements have an impact on academy nominations? We are going through the Oscar nominations to see how comic books have influenced pop culture as comic influenced movies start to move outside of just the special effects category.

“If you were dressed up in a costume with tights, there was no way you’d get nominated for an Oscar.” – Jeff Gomez

 

Segment 3: The Last Jedi
Hardcore fans weren’t the happiest with The Last Jedi, to say the least, but Jeff Gomez says there is a method to their madness in his article “The Self Disruption of Star Wars”. How does the new direction the franchise is taking effect the characters within the story? And how does the demand for a new film every year play in

“So what do you have to do to please hardcore fans now that you have such a bigger audience to engage with? In order to do that there is a process called self-disruption where you break some of your “toys” to fix them” – Jeff Gomez

Segment 4: Disney/Fox Merger
Jeff gives insight into a potential Disney/Fox merger saying it’ll be “huge for fanboys” and how that might dictate Marvel’s plans for the MCU in the coming years. With a bunch of movies getting new release dates including Deadpool and The New Mutants, what does this say about the direction Fox is heading?

“In the twilight of Fox they are doing interesting things with the franchises.”
