It was announced prior to filming that Logan would be Hugh Jackman's last appearance with his ever-entertaining on-screen partner; the adamantium claws. Jackman has portrayed the role of X-Men's Wolverine for 17 years now, so I, like many other fans, was sad and excited about his final appearance as the character - which had been revealed to be based upon the 'old-man' version of the Marvel comic book favourite.

Hellboy 3: A Netflix Original Series?

We've not seen Hellboy on-screen for around thirteen years, so it's fair to say it's been a while, unless you, like myself, have revisited them since because they're genuinely quite good, very true to their comic origins and display some of the top tier CGI and make-up transformations in cinema.

[pause]
Little: Is your name 'Blue'?
Juan: [laughs] Nah.
[pause]
Juan: At some point, you gotta decide for yourself who you're going to be. Can't let nobody make that decision for you.
