Whilst promoting X-Men :Days of Future Past, Hugh Jackman and the producers sat down with Collider and discussed the future Wolverine film and Days of Future Past's follow-up, Apocalypse. Here's what they had to say:
Collider: One of the things people don’t realize is that you went from shooting The Wolverine to this…
HUGH JACKMAN: I did Prisoners in between.
Collider: But it was pretty close.
JACKMAN: Pretty close. It was about four months in between.
Collider: Is that something you’d want to do in the future, let’s say for X-Men: Apocalypse and another Wolverine sequel? Or is that something where you think that’s too much?
JACKMAN: No, in a weird way that has crossed my mind if that’s the way things play out, because physically, even though I was complaining about it because I found out about [X-Men: Days of Future Past] a month before I finished The Wolverine, so I was already planning on my cheat meals. It’s much easier because it’s tough to get there, physically, but once you’re there, it’s easier to maintain it.
Producers Donner and Parker had a few words to say on the matter. When asked about the shooting shedule, Donner said, "Well, we announced Apocalypse to come out in 2016, so that means we have to shoot next summer. And then we’d have to shoot our new Wolverine movie either before or after that. I think after because it will come out after." Parker added, " And as much as you have an ambition for these things, it is, as you said about Hugh, getting a script that everybody feels is ready and right. Because that is the foundation on which everything is built. So I think the goal will be Apocalypse for 2016, which means at the latest [filming begins] in summer 2015, and then the same thing with Wolverine, either before or after, but based on the script."
