Hugh Jackman Reveals That They Have A Story For THE WOLVERINE 2

Hugh Jackman Reveals That They Have A Story For THE WOLVERINE 2

Or "The Wolverine 3" I guess, if you count X-Men: Origins! Anyway, last we heard they hadn't settled on a plot for the next solo Logan flick, but while chatting to Latino Review Jackman reveals that he and director James Mangold are actively working on the story. Course, he doesn't say what that is..

The last time Hugh Jackman was quizzed about the next solo Wolverine movie he wouldn't even reveal if he'd signed on to star in it yet, but I think the following video interview confirms that he has now at any rate. Not only that, but he reveals that he and James Mangold have found a story and are actively working on it. He doesn't drop any hints as to what that story may be, but he does say that it will once again take the character in a "completely different head space, world space, in every way somewhere different that you haven't seen him before".

Obviously there are lots of great Wolverine stories out there, but based on what Jackman says here -- and keeping in mind that it'll likely be very different to the last movie -- any ideas what comic arc they might be basing the next flick on? Sound off in the usual place.

Wish we could see him with Alpha Flight :(
batz11 - 5/9/2014, 7:05 AM
I wonder if Wolverine will be in it?...
JBatesyFilmreviews - 5/9/2014, 7:05 AM
When he says a different 'world space', I would be surprised if it wasn't on the lines of Old Man Logan. Would be a good way to allude to this fox marvel universe by mentioning the fantastic four etc

@GliderMan- as much as I loved that Sabertooth... Anything from Origins Wolverine just won't work. It never fits in with the X-men continuity and never made any sense
JoJo1982 - 5/9/2014, 7:06 AM
Cool, funny I was just watching The Wolverine unrated a few days ago..... still one of my faves now (well theb first 2 hrs)
JoeMomma29 - 5/9/2014, 7:07 AM

I would love a Alpha Flight movie!
SuperCat - 5/9/2014, 7:07 AM

MexicanSuperman - 5/9/2014, 7:12 AM

JoeMomma29 - 5/9/2014, 7:13 AM

I did not even pay attention as long as Jerry is behind the wheel the Cowboys will not go anywhere fast.

man, i really got a soft spot for Hugh Jackman.
I don't like his version of Wolverine, actually
but look how happy he is to get another Wolverine movie, the guy genuinely loves the character. right on Jackman, Wolverine doesn't love u back, but it's hard to say if Wolverine truly loves anyone. so you're in good company at least.

I hope this is his last one for a while, but that it's left open for him to come back in 20 years to do one.

Also i hope that Wolverine in this movie is left in a time loop where he has to live out his life from a certain point to another point of seemingly unending torture, again and again and again, never remembering all the other times. but always faced with the same decision before looping back....
1. experience the sweet bliss of death
2. saving the soul of a specific person, probably Jean Grey from what they've set up so far, and living out the repeated torture of what his life will bring him all over again.

and he always chooses the second option.

Please no costume. Please no costume

I hope they call The Wolverine 2. that would end any doubts that these movies have nothing to do with crap Xmen Oeigins Wolverine.

Samething with The Incredible Hulk, whenever they do anther one they should call TIH 2 and not make up another name because it will look like its either another reboot or its the second sequel from the 2003 Eric Banas hulk which I didn't like.
brazilianbatman - 5/9/2014, 7:28 AM
isn't Jackman I little to young to be old man Logan? He is in his mid 40s and the old Logan seems to be on his 60's by appearance.

Isn't DoFP actually The Wolverine 6?
arsonjack - 5/9/2014, 7:30 AM
bring on the wolverine
Ineedrevelation - 5/9/2014, 7:32 AM
Don't bring back Liv Schriber. Worst Sabertooth there ever was.

As a matter of fact, recast Wolverine already. We know who it needs to be...

Wolverine's mask is stupid and would never work in a movie. His mask is almost as bad as Hawkeye's.
MercwithMouth - 5/9/2014, 7:32 AM
I think @JoeMomma has had too much coffee this

Awesome news. The Wolverine was fantastic. Mangold really understand who Logan is as a character. Gimme more.
fettastic - 5/9/2014, 7:33 AM
He's all but said they're doing a version of Old Man Logan, which is a great idea, especially for a swan song.
CoulsonLives - 5/9/2014, 7:33 AM
I'm glad they didn't call it Wolverine 3 ;)
njpantherfan - 5/9/2014, 7:35 AM
Serious question: how do you do Old Man Logan when you don't have the rights to the Hulk, Hawkeye, Mysterio, or any of the parts of that story that make it great?
fettastic - 5/9/2014, 7:37 AM
They won't call it The Wolverine 2, they'll call it "The Wolverine: Absolution" or something.
