Okay, so, first of all, I am so fucking excited about Logan getting a “Writing (Adapted Screenplay)” nomination. So excited. Like, I know it’s a long shot, given how much critical praise stuff like Call Me By Your Name is getting, but there’s a chance! And this has literally never happened before for a superhero movie.
(I have to say, it feels really appropriate that the first script nomination for a superhero movie is for an XMCU flick, especially the one that says goodbye to both Sir Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman, both of whom were backbones of the franchise.)
But holy shit have the other comics and geek presses have buried the lede on this one. CBR says “Logan, GOTG2 Get Oscar Nominations,” Comicbook.com says “Logan Gets Nominated for an Academy Award,” WGTC (an outlet I used to write for, FFS) says “Oscars 2018: Logan Nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay, Wonder Woman Snubbed.” The only outlet that seems to get it is Screenrant, and they only put their article up like 20 minutes ago. It’s a good article, though, I’m impressed by its thoroughness.
Anyway, I’m super excited, and also tonight you can expect reviews of Incidentals vol. 1 and #5, since those come out tomorrow and I live for Lion Forge’s Catalyst Prime line.
