THE WOLVERINE Sequel Will Explore The Father/Son Relationship Between 'Xavier' & 'Logan'

We already knew that Patrick Stewart would be making an appearance as Charles Xavier in the follow up to James Mangold's The Wolverine, but from the sounds of things he's going to have a much bigger role than we thought. Find out what Hugh Jackman had to say on that and more...


Collider has managed to get some very interesting updates from Hugh Jackman relating to his final time the claws and muttonchops as everyone's favourite mutant berserker, Wolverine.

It was previously all but confirmed that Charles Xavier would factor into the plot of James Mangold's The Wolverine sequel, but according to Jackman the "quasi-father/son relationship" between the two long-time friends will be explored, and we'll be seeing something "very different" from Sir Patrick Stewart's take on the wheelchair-bound Professor.

The Aussie actor also says that, although he's very happy with how things are coming along, he doesn't want to fully commit to shooting the movie until everything he envisions for his last turn as Logan is just right.



“I’ll be really honest with you, the actual script in its full form we’re up to about Page 60. Obviously there’s a treatment, so it’s not fully done yet, we’re not fully there. Patrick does figure in it that’s for sure. I think it’s a really important relationship but I want to see signs of that quasi-father/son sort of relationship that has not been seen before, and sides of particularly Professor X that have not been seen before. So we have some really, really cool ideas.”


There's still persistent rumors that this will be a loose adaptation of Mark Millar's Old Man Logan, but - aside from Jackman's taken-out-of-context SDCC quotes - nobody involved has offered any confirmation of that yet. Could Xavier take over Hawkeye's role in that story, perhaps? let us know what you think of all of this in the usual place.
