Will the Next WOLVERINE Movie Shoot Back-to-Back With X-MEN: APOCALYPSE?

Will the Next WOLVERINE Movie Shoot Back-to-Back With X-MEN: APOCALYPSE?

You heard it right folks, in a recent interview with Collider, Hugh Jackman revealed the possibility of those two films shooting back to back as well as whether or not he will appear in Brian Singer's X-men: Apocalypse. Read on for more...

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."

How high was he when they did this interview?
arsonjack - 5/10/2014, 1:41 PM
commitment Jackman
CherryBomb - 5/10/2014, 1:42 PM
Yeah they should.
He is getting old and his role is very physical. It'll be nice to give a nice send of with Wolverine and maybe not have to wait too long to see it.

One italic to rule them all.
CinemaHero - 5/10/2014, 1:47 PM
I'm sorry McNyagano... I can't help it... XD

Omega and DrDoom

Starfox - 5/10/2014, 2:00 PM

I hope they shoot back-to-back

Wouldn't be surprised, definitely make sense. Don't necessarily take the wording as shooting back-to-back, but will definitely be close. He's not getting any younger and has to stay well in shape for the character, makes sense to do them as close together as possible...

Hopefully they give a worthy send off in Wolverine 3

I had a feeling I was going to walk in on a fun discussion lol.

Why does that Snickers advertisement fit with that High picture so well?
MarkV - 5/10/2014, 2:04 PM
Why do threads keep disappearing? There was an intesting one about Batman vs Superman that went *poof*
AlexanderLykins - 5/10/2014, 2:06 PM
Hey McNyagano! You got any MCU news saved up?
AlexanderLykins - 5/10/2014, 2:09 PM
nailbiter111 deleted it and told Starfox to add more to it.
AlexanderLykins - 5/10/2014, 2:10 PM
Hopefully Starfox gets it back up.
WeaponX93 - 5/10/2014, 2:10 PM
Good. Give us two more good films before you bow out.

McNyagano - 5/10/2014, 2:12 PM

Let's just say I'm seeing Guardians very very soon;)
HulkOnion - 5/10/2014, 2:12 PM
Hes so high his eyes are redder than Bishop in DOFP
Starfox - 5/10/2014, 2:13 PM

I would post it again but I gotta get some work done pretty soon. I just wished we got tips on how to fix the article before its just gone LOL.
AlexanderLykins - 5/10/2014, 2:17 PM
How early can you tell people details about the movie? I think I remember people saying you sent select people messages with Captain America: The Winter Soldier details. If so, could you do that for me for this movie?
AlexanderLykins - 5/10/2014, 2:20 PM
Anything you could give would be appreciated.
McNyagano - 5/10/2014, 2:24 PM

I'll send a short non-spoiler review (1 or 2 paragraphs short) to you and a few people I trust here, they know themselves;)
AlexanderLykins - 5/10/2014, 2:26 PM
That would be great! All I really would want to know is if you liked it or not.
fedeferruzola - 5/10/2014, 2:26 PM
We don't need another Wolverine solo film, I want X-MEN 4 and 6.
Lucasberg - 5/10/2014, 2:30 PM

I have been following your comments and I believe you've already seen the movie. I am also aware that you are not sold out to one thing or another (Marvel vs DC vs Fox blah blah) and therefore I think your opinion of films hold validity.

All of that said.... I AM DYING TO KNOW WHAT YOU THOUGHT OF THIS MOVIE - Like on a scale from Superman III to Dark Knight/Avengers (scale from 1 - 10) .... what would you give this movie?
WinterSoldier33 - 5/10/2014, 2:34 PM
x men apocalypse will be awesome

x men days of future past has a 8.9 on imdb so thats a good sign since avengers has a 8.2
McNyagano - 5/10/2014, 2:36 PM

Honestly, haven't seen it yet:) The only films I have seen that haven't been released yet are Malificent and Godzilla. Will see DOFP on Monday;)
billnye69 - 5/10/2014, 2:36 PM
Why did you edit it. It was awesome the way it was. :(
Emjeed - 5/10/2014, 2:37 PM
Nice find McNy!
WinterSoldier33 - 5/10/2014, 2:45 PM

all i want to know is if my prediction that the little girl is anya maximoff

Brainiac13 - 5/10/2014, 2:45 PM


The actor is getting on with his strict training regime for Pan after revealing he has undergone more treatment for skin cancer



WinterSoldier33 - 5/10/2014, 2:52 PM

also can you please send me the short summary to
Darlene1974 - 5/10/2014, 3:14 PM
I hope they will do it back to back!!!...
WB gotta do 2 X-films a year!!!
maninfinesuit - 5/10/2014, 3:27 PM
I seriously doubt it will still be 'Bryan Singer's X-MEN: APOCALYPSE' by the time they get around to shooting it.
typicalfanboy - 5/10/2014, 4:36 PM
Jackie, again? Uncle!!!!
mgeoff88 - 5/10/2014, 4:51 PM
Shooting back-to-back? Usually when a studio does that, it ends up hurting the movies.

I wouldn't complain about getting two X-Men movies a year, but not if it means rushing the movies into production, which could possibly negatively affect the quality of the movies.
ThrotTheUnclean - 5/10/2014, 5:03 PM
God damn cancer sucks. I hope he can fight it off for good.
MightyZeus - 5/10/2014, 6:14 PM
If The Wolverine sequel is being shot back to back with Apocalypse then i think it's a brilliant idea. I actually don't want to see Hugh Jackman retire as Wolverine because the man is amazing in the role.
case - 5/10/2014, 7:01 PM
Skin cancer? Definitely an Aussie.
ThePowerCosmic - 5/10/2014, 7:18 PM
Omega Red for the next Wolverine film or GTFO!
