I took it like that too cuz I know Jackman knows how that isn't really possible to adapt. I really do think he just meant it's a story about Logan being an old man.

Man, I'd love for them to bring Liev back. He was one of the better casting choices in the X-men franchise.

I'd love to seem him back playing the more feral Sabretooth instead of just "Victor Creed."

I'd like Schreiber back too. I'd prefer more personality than Mane's Creed though.

At least he's not a lackey like Mane's Creed. Like Hardy's Bane over the Jeep Swenson's Bane in Batman & Robin (I did not know that Jeep had died).

Huge Jackedman says the movie will explore the father/son dynamic between Wolverine and Professor X

Patrick does figure in it that's for sure. I think it's a really important relationship but I want to see signs of that quasi-father/son sort of relationship that has not been seen before, and sides of particularly Professor X that have not been seen before. So we have some really, really cool ideas."

"The ultimate plan is let's start shooting next year," he continued. "I'm starting the training, I'm starting the eating and mentally really preparing for it. It's not just me, the studio as well -- I'm trying to do something with this that's a little special, a little different. I've got a very, very strong idea of what that is. I really have known for quite a long time how I want to finish this sort of odyssey that I've been on, this amazing journey. And I won't let it fall anywhere in between. I won't fall short of it."

So sounds like if Singer and Kinberg have their way Wolverine isn't going to be recast in the near future. I'm a bit skeptical as unless they can get Jackman to continue on as the character I don't think I see Fox wanting to go too long without using Wolverine in future X-Men films. Jackman said that the third Wolverine film would be his last time but prior to that he had talked like he didn't necessarily want to step down so I'm curious what will happen.

Wolverine Probably Won’t Be Recast in the ‘X-Men’ Universe When Hugh Jackman Leaves
Britt Hayes

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 — and the Gambit movie). 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.

Jackman has promised that The Wolverine 2 will mark his final time portraying the character, and while we certainly believe him, anything is possible down the line. In an interview with Digital Spy, Singer and Kinberg said they couldn’t imagine recasting Jackman’s role, though they do want to figure out how to keep the character going in the X-Men universe. Kinberg says:

I do think you would want to figure out how to tell more Wolverine stories. So either we would try to entice Hugh to come back and eat more chicken and work out for a few months, or we would have to figure out a creative way to move forward. Honestly, I can’t imagine anybody else playing the part, and there’s not too many characters I can say that for.

So basically at this point, they either have to convince Jackman to stick around past The Wolverine 2, or…that’s it. Singer and Kinberg’s options are limited. If they do recast Wolverine, it would likely be years from now, probably in a new cycle of X-Men movies with an all-new cast. Replacing Jackman so soon after his exit just isn’t happening.

The Wolverine 2 is set to hit theaters in 2017. Meanwhile, we’ll see the next installment of the X-Men franchise when X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27.

Why does that article keep referring to the movie as Wolverine 2? I guess the writer was not a fan of Origins.

I'm guessing the upcoming film is more of an actual direct sequel to The Wolverine whereas The Wolverine didn't directly follow X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Either way though it's incorrect as its the third film.

To be fair, not many people were IIRC.

Maybe they'll introduce X-23 or whatever her name is to replace Logan.

Wasn't The Wolverine retconned out of existence by DOFP like all of the other X-movies (with the exception of FC)?

Though it was sort of implied that Wolverine remembered the original timeline at the end of DOFP.

Is that a different character from Lady Deathstrike that was in X2?

True. I think Logan does remember the events as they were before the reset though. As much as I liked Days of Future Past I sort of dislike that it wiped out the timeline entirely. I mean of all the films only two are really bad and I don't dislike X-Men Origins: Wolverine as much as most people.

Yes, X-23 is a female clone of Wolverine.

Basically marvel kept on getting hate mail from fans who felt a little bit gay after jerking off to wolverine for so long. So they created a female version of him.

I'd love to see X-23, I enjoyed her origin comics quite a bit and actually just read her as the "All New Wolverine" recently.

While X-23 would be kind of cool to see I don't think she'd be a good permanent replacement for the actual character. I'd think Fox would push to recast if Jackman doesn't return whether Singer likes it or not.

Re: Wolverine 3 (D: Mangold) S: Jackman - News, rumors, casting, etc.

20th Century Fox revealed at Toy Fair 2016 that they would be targeting an R-rating for Hugh Jackman's final run as Wolverine next year.

This news follows the massive success of Fox's first R-rated standalone super hero movie, as Deadpool absolutely killed the box office this weekend. They previously dabbled with R-rated comic book movies earlier in 2015 with Kingsman: The Secret Service, which also turned out to be a surprise hit, though not as big a success as the world's new favorite merc.

The news comes from a pamphlet or catalog Fox handed out to guests at their Toy Fair presentation. The logo for Wolverine 3 is featured above the theatrical release date, home entertainment release date, and anticipated MPAA rating. See it below.



The move is an interesting one by 20th Century Fox. There was no doubt they would pursue R-rated movies in the future as they explored the Deadpool and X-Force corners of their X-Men universe but to take a character who has been established as PG-13 for over 15 years now is bold. That said, they could be banking on telling an accurate representation of the Old Man Logan story and Wolverine fans having grown past the age of R-rating admittance.

One has to wonder if these plans were made and revealed today following the success this weekend or if the R-rating was already planned prior to Deadpool's box office explosion. Let's bet on the former. In any case, what are your thoughts on an R-rated finale to Hugh Jackman's run as Wolverine?

We have reached out to FOX for comment, and will let you know as soon as we hear back.

The Wolverine sequel, which will be Hugh Jackman's last, is set for release March 3, 2017.

That just seems dumb. It's Jackman's last turn as Wolvie, wait until they recast the character. No sense alienating younger fans this far into his run.

Also, maybe it's because I haven't seen what an R-rated Wolverine would look like, but he works fine as a PG-13 character... at least Jackman's version.

Having him slash dudes chests open and not show any blood at all is stupid

Hopefully this last one is an R
