Video: The choice to use Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt" for the Logan trailer certainly sent a message. This is going to be a very different superhero movie than what we're used to. But what happens if you take that song, and the mournful mood it generates, and stretch it back into the previous films?

Logan director James Mangold continues to post interesting bits and bobs to his Twitter account. In addition to another black-and-white shot of Hugh Jackman as Old Man Logan — one that makes it even money that the next Logan trailer uses "Ring of Fire" instead of "Hurt" — there are also some lovely storyboards.
You know, in the other black and white Old Man Logan image we got, I thought he was looking better than ever. This new photo pretty much puts that to bed. I guess the future does not come with doctors. At least not doctors Logan can trust.
The first trailer for Logan dropped this morning, giving us confirmation of the long-standing rumour that comic book hero Laura Kinney — a.k.a. X-23 — will be in the movie. If that name doesn't ring a bell for you, we're here to help: it's because little Laura could end up being the key to the future of Wolverine on the big screen.
Sure he's not looking quite as old as his ancient co-star Professor X did, but here is our first look at the third Wolverine movie's Logan, looking even more worse for wear than usual. A few years of getting beat up over and over again will do that to you!
Video: The filmmakers from Sneaky Zebra are back with a sequel to a 2013 short film called Prop Wars, where countless movie replicas are used in an epic battle between a group of friends. Prop Wars: Prop Harder draws its inspiration from countless blockbusters including Tron: Legacy, The Force Awakens, Men In Black, Evil Dead and even the endless Marvel movies, but half the fun is trying to spot the less-obvious references and nods.
A handful of enterprising engineers and artists are using 3D printers to design and build cheap but functional prosthetic hands for kids who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford them. And taking things one step further, Aaron Brown, a volunteer over at E-nabling The Future (the group behind the 3D-printed prosthetics initiative) took things one step further by designing a set of fake Wolverine claws to make kids wearing the prosthetics feel like superheroes.
Holy crap, this guy made the best Wolverine claws replicas ever. These 12-inch steel blades are fully automatic: they can deploy or retract with the push of a button. I've seen many tries at making these, but nothing as amazing as this these ones. And for sure, you can use these as real — very — mortal weapons.
