With a world wide take of $413 million, it is a no brainer that Fox and Marvel will want a third solo Wolverine film. The man that Fox wants is James Mangold, naturally to direct. Here is what Collider is reporting.
“Mangold is in talks with 20th Century Fox to return for aWolverine sequel and to write the treatment. Unsurprisingly, all plot details are being kept under tight wraps, but it’s possible they don’t even know what the plot will be at this point. The Wolverine used Logan’s most popular solo story—his time in Japan—but now they’re free to either work from scratch or loosely pull from any plotline from the character’s 39-year history”.
The other issue, one would think, is what about Hugh Jackman? The star has given no indication that he wants to walk away from the role in which he is synonymous with. So Maniacs, what is the next Wolverine story that you would like to see jump off the page? “Old Man Logan” is pipe dream at best, well at least until Marvel gets all their characters under one roof. Perhaps something original? Sound off below!
