With the franchise’s leading man possibly bowing out after the next film, here are five game plans Fox can use to keep the X-films rolling.
The actor stresses that even involvement in the Wolverine sequel isn’t guaranteed, saying it will depend on the story. However, he teases the possibility of an adaptation of “Old Man Logan.”
Hugh Jackman says Channing Tatum, who’s already expressed an interest in playing Gambit, might be a good choice to succeed him as Wolverine.
James Mangold confirms he’ll start shooting another Wolverine movie following Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse.
Star Hugh Jackman won’t confirm that he’s signed on for a sequel to The Wolverine, but concedes, “I think we’ve got a great opportunity to make something really cool.”
A deleted scene from James Mangold’s The Wolverine provides a long-anticipated glimpse of Logan’s classic comic-book costume.
The Wolverine star Hugh Jackman says his time playing the claw-popping mutant is drawing to a close, unless there’s “a really good reason” to continue.
One of the screenwriters of The Wolverine reveals he tried to find a way to reteam Logan with Rogue in director James Mangold’s film. “There’s something special between them,” Mark Bomback says, “so I was trying to bring Rogue into it, but it just didn’t get there.”
Hollywood analysts predict that James Mangold’s The Wolverine will earn between $75 million and $80 million domestically in its opening weekend. Starring Hugh Jackman, the film debuts Friday.
