That clever Star Wars X-wing knife holder you've probably bought as a housewarming gift a few times doesn't actually seem quite as clever — or injury-causing — compared to this alternative that makes it look like Wolverine's hands are busting through your kitchen countertop.

It's easy to forget that the current series of X-Men movies started with Matthew Vaughn. Six years ago, the Kick-Ass and Kingsman director made the reboot X-Men: First Class, and was getting ready to make its sequel before semi-mysteriously dropping out. And while Vaughn and others have previously dropped a few hints about that departure, new details make it even more disappointing.
Ant-Man and the Wasp might be on the lookout for another size-changing superhero. Woody Harrelson reassures people about Ron Howard's vision for the Han Solo movie. Flash set pictures reveal a big costume change for Wally West and a deep DC cut. Plus, new footage from War for the Planet of the Apes. Behold, spoilers!
Video: Logan was a beautiful, brilliant, heart-wrenching film that sucker-punched us in the feels like no other X-Men film ever has. If you don't agree, that's fine. it's okay to be wrong.
Get the tissues ready, because our favourite Mikey Neumann has broken down in spectacular fashion the sheer artistry of Wolverine's farewell.
No one disputes that James Mangold struck gold when he cast Dafne Keen as X-23 in his hit film, Logan. You can even watch her audition and see why he made that choice. She was amazing.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, our roundup of the shiniest toys currently threatening that pile of money you have in your back account. This week we have an incredibly detailed Wolverine figure, Spider-Man: Homecoming's weirdest new Spider-tech made robo-flesh, and some unique DC comics statuettes. Hide your wallets!
We hear stories about actors being cast as superheroes who have never picked up a comic book all the time, but Hugh Jackman took this a step further when he showed up for his Wolverine audition back in the late '90s for the first X-Men movie. He didn't even know wolverines existed — and he found out in the most delightfully awkward way.
Video: Despite being Hugh Jackman's final outing as Wolverine, the real star of Logan turned out to be Dafne Keen. Finding a very young actress to not only share a screen with Jackman, but sometimes outshine him, sounds like a nearly impossible task. But after you see this clip of Keen's audition, you'll realise casting her must have been a very easy choice for director James Mangold.
California senator Kamala Harris is the second black woman ever elected to the US Senate, a huge policy nerd, an unabashed proponent of dropping f-bombs, and, as luck would have it, a huge X-Men fan. So when she was asked recently about the future of the American job market, she saw an opportunity to use Logan as a teachable moment.
If the world were ever to suddenly become overrun with evil, sentient, terrorist bears, who would you call for help? The Avengers? The X-Men? They're all busy with Secret Empire. No, see, when you've got a killer bear problem to deal with, there's really only one man for the job: Image's Shirtless Bear-Fighter.
The gut-wrenching, excellent Logan finally hit theatres last week — and while there may not be a post-credit stinger to tease the future of the X-Men movie universe, there is still a lot to talk about. And probably be sad about, too. So consider this your moment, if you've seen the movie, to let rip about what you think comes next.
Caught Logan this week and confused about the timeline? Fair enough, really. Between various origin stories and chronology-twisting instalments, the X-Men series isn't kind to those who like their films linear.
Some industrial cutting machines use a thin metal wire carrying an incredibly strong electrical charge to cut through steel like it's softened butter. That's probably what inspired the Hacksmith to create a wearable pair of Wolverine claws connected to a car battery. They're not quite as deadly as Logan's adamantium claws are — unless you happen to be wearing them.
Anyone who's seen the trailers could easily guess that Logan is the best solo Wolverine movie, but it's more than that. It's a legitimately special movie that just happens to star superheroes — a film that wouldn't be out of place at the Academy Awards. And it's still just as badass as any Wolverine fan could want.
