Hugh Jackman And James Mangold In Talks For ‘The Wolverine 2′

The Wolverine
20th Century Fox/Marvel

Considering the box office success of The Wolverine and the upcoming release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, few fans were worried about the seeming cinematic immortality (13 years is a long time!) of Hugh Jackman’s take on Marvel’s least-merry mutant. Still, fans will take comfort in Deadline‘s report that Jackman, along with The Wolverine director¬†James Mangold, are both in negotiations to return for The Wolverine 2.

Plot details are more or less nonexistent for the sequel, although The Wolverine‘s ending certainly established a status quo that could be explored. Fox’s X-movies aren’t exactly beholden to intense continuity rules, however, meaning anything is possible. X-Men Origins: Wolverine covered a lot of bases for the character, so it seems likely that a new film could push the character’s clawed narrative forward in a way that hasn’t quite been done since the first three X-Men films.

Something tells me we won’t be seeing a “The Wolverine: The Patch Chronicles 3D” in the coming summers, but one can always dream…
