Hugh Jackman On Wolverine 2 Story

Hugh Jackman On Wolverine 2 Story

He confirms again the Japanese storyline the film will follow.

Hugh Jackman talked to MTV and confirmed that Wolverine 2 will take place in Japan.

"Japan is where we're heading, [and] we're starting to work on it now. We're in the ... first steps of developing that story," Jackman said about adapting Frank Miller and Chris Claremont's story arc.

He added: "I think the fans love that saga. It's my favorite saga of the Wolverine stories."

A true adaption of the Miller storyline would be amazing, I only hope this doesn't become another cameo movie.

i think this gains more prominance b/c HUGH has always admitted to loving that story and if WOLVERINE is more aggressive with this is could be an awesome sequel. X2 was the only good film in that trilogy anyway, so why not WOLVERINE 2?

here's hoping zak snyder gets a crack at directing. I love what he does with Miller's books. Madness? This is MARVEL!!!!

I heard that Zack Snyder was a candidate to direct the first Wolverine movie but I think he was too busy with Watchmen.

@ShakeNBake - If you don't wanna see it, then just DON'T GO SEE IT!!! Lol. Its that simple. The rest of us, still like seeing Wolverine slice n dice people even if the story line isn't perfect, as opposed to not having a movie at all.

With Christopher 'The Usual Suspects' McQuarrie on board it looks like Bryan Singer will at least be offered a chance to direct Wolvy 2. (I hope that's the official title, lol.)

No more hack international directors taking on a big budget comic adaptation (we're all looking at you Gavin Hood). Yeah, I know Fox didn't give him breathing space but still bad choice.
