Aside from Hugh Jackman’s “Old Man Logan” tipoff during last year’s Comic-Con, we don’t know much about The Wolverine 2. Director James Mangold is returning to the helm of the upcoming sequel, which doesn’t yet have a formal title, though it is expected to hit theaters in 2017. According to a new report, we may be learning a lot more about Jackman’s final outing as the iconic X-Men character as filming is set to begin this spring.

Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine for over 15 years. He’s appeared on screen as the iconic X-Men character in seven films, including his uncredited cameo in X-Men: First Class, and by the time The Wolverine 2 rolls around, we can round that number up to eight (and that’s not including the potential for cameos in X-Men: Apocalypse, which he’s denied, as well as Gambit). Fans have been wondering if Wolverine will be recast once Jackman exits the franchise, but according to Bryan Singer and producer Simon Kinberg, that’s not likely to happen.
Happy Deadpool trailer (aka Christmas) eve, everyone! Ahead of tomorrow’s new trailer debut during the NBA on ESPN, 20th Century Fox has premiered a brief teaser with the help of none other than Wolverine — sorry, Ryan Reynolds, but Hugh Jackman stole your thunder and posted the teaser himself.
Hugh Jackman has remained steadfast that the upcoming third Wolverine movie will be the next and last time he plays the iconic X-man on film, after sitting out the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. But it turns out there may be more to that story as Jackman may indeed be filming a role for Bryan Singer’s upcoming X-Men adventure.
A couple of weeks ago, Hugh Jackman revealed a teaser image for The Wolverine 2 on Twitter and asked fans what they’d like to see in the new sequel. It’s Jackman’s last outing as the beloved X-Men character, and it makes sense that the actor would want to deliver the best possible story for Logan yet. We know the plot is (somewhat) based on Mark Millar’s Old Man Logan comic, but as Jackman reveals, there were a couple of things in particular that his fans really want to see.
Although he was on the set of X-Men: Apocalypse, we won’t be seeing Patrick Stewart’s elder Professor X in Bryan Singer’s upcoming sequel. But there is good news for fans of Sir Pat Stew, as the actor has revealed that Charles Xavier will reunite with his old pal Logan for The Wolverine 2.
Even though he previously said he’d love to play the character until he dies, Hugh Jackman has recently maintained that The Wolverine 2 will mark his final appearance as the iconic character. After how pleased we were with The Wolverine, we’re hoping the sequel can provide a proper send-off for Jackman, who has just revealed the first teaser image from the film.
We were greeted with an unexpected — but totally welcome — surprise yesterday at 20th Century Fox’s Comic-Con panel. Hugh Jackman was the first to arrive on stage for the X-Men: Apocalypse portion of the evening, where he once again confirmed The Wolverine 2 as his last Logan outing. We weren’t expecting much in the way of news from the sequel, but then Jackman said three words: “Old Man Logan.”
First, a quick history: last year, Hugh Jackman himself said he would be in both X-Men: Apocalypse and The Wolverine 3. Then the actor said he would love to play Wolverine until he dies, if Fox would let him (pretty sure they would). And then he said The Wolverine 3 would be his final appearance as the clawed mutant hero, and he began acting coy about additional appearances in interviews. So, is he in X-Men: Apocalypse or not? We might have a legitimate answer now.
We’ve been hearing for some time now that Hugh Jackman will be reprising his role as Wolverine for cameo appearances in both Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse — because how can you have an X-Men movie without Wolverine? The actor has appeared in every X-Men film to date, so it makes sense. Jackman himself has finally addressed the rumors, but don’t expect a straightforward answer.
