So what do you think of this first movie trailer of The Wolverine? Are you impatient to see Wolverine 2? Share your thoughts below!
Must be a picture from a flashback scene because his claws aren’t infused with adamantium. If you take a closer look you’ll see indeed that they’re just bone claws. But adamntium or not I wouldn’t want to get close to his claws: Wolverine is still a dangerous beast, and he looks enraged on that pic!
Besides this picture there’s also news that Wolverine 2 is actually a sequel to the X-Men trilogy and not a prequel:
“Where this film sits in the universe of the films is after them all. Jean Grey is gone, most of the X-Men are disbanded or gone, so there’s a tremendous sense of isolation for him.”
Director James Mangold
The X-Men disbanded? Does he really what he’s talking about? :-/
Actor Hugh Jackman confirmed that Director Darren Aronofsky will helm Wolverine 2. He also added that the movie sequel to Wolverine will based on a script by Chris McQuarrie (who wrote The Usual Suspects).Hugh Jackman is currently training to get back in shape, and filming should begin in March.
The first Wolverine is maybe not yet out but get ready for Wolverine 2. In a recent interview given to MTV (here) Hugh Jackman, who plays the role Logan aka Wolverine in the upcoming X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie, has talked about the direction a Wolverine sequel may take:
Below a transcript where he talks about what should be done in the Wolverine movie sequel:
“The most intriguing thing to me was the Japan story. I love the Japan story. I wanted to do the Japan story from around X-Men 2. Can you just picture Wolverine in Japan with the triads and the samurai? It’s just genius. Comedically and dramatically, I thought, ‘This is awesome!’ But how can you do that before you explain his origins? If we tried to mix the origin and Japan together, it wouldn’t do justice to either. So you can tell by the answer where I’d like it to go.”
I totally agree with Hugh Jackman: the Japan plot sounds damned appealing! I really want this japan story to go through for the Wolverine sequel.
