It turns out that basically ever since we started having Caroline on as a guest, she’s wanted to talk about an X-Men film, and particularly a Wolverine film. If only she’d said something sooner, we might have got around to this one sooner, because it turns out that James Mangold’s first Jackman-starrer that you all forgot about is actually, possibly – whisper it – his best?
Over in the news, meanwhile, we catch up on The Batman casting, Joker’s runaway freight train success, confirmation of Into the Spider-Verse 2, and the latest from Marvel’s TV shows including when we’ll get to see them in the UK.
