The pandemic-induced Marvel fan film boon continues with Wolverine in Close Shave COVID-19 seriously derailed everyone’s plans for 2020, but with studios either massively delaying their new films or shifting them to streaming services, it’s particularly proven to be a real existential crisis for movie theater chains. While playing it safe undeniably was the right move on Hollywood’s part, there’s no denying the impossibility of cinemas turning a profit when literally every major superhero IP (because, really, what other blockbusters are there these days?) suddenly evaporates from your release calendar into thin air like, hm, there’s gotta be a major pop cultural reference we can shoehorn in here somehow. Oh, well. Never mind. And yet, perhaps because of this big-budget superhero flick drought, we’ve seen a boon of excellent fan-made short films. From a long-awaited Gambit caper to a really solid Miles Morales tale, the pause in mega-releases from Disney and Fox have incidentally allowed up-and-coming filmmakers to really shine. Now, we can add a Wolverine mini-adventure to that list with the seriously fun short Close Shave.
