I don’t really have a read on if James Mangold’s The Wolverine has been accepted, rejected or mostly ignored by the general public and fans. I thought it was okayish (my review), but I don’t feel there’s a big clamoring for a sequel. With a bevy of X-Men films headed our way (X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool and Gambit), it seems like the market might be a little saturated. And while Hugh Jackman has been great in the role, it feels like his time may be coming to an end.
Nobody tell James Mangold, since he recently confirmed on his Twitter account that The Wolverine 2 will start shooting some time in early 2016. The most popular rumor has Logan teaming up with Professor X for the film’s running time. A superhero buddy movie? No complaints from me.
Does anyone care about this movie? What other source material of Logan’s can be mined? Why not just re-read Barry Windsor-Smith’s Weapon X for the eighty-second time? The comments await below.
