WOLVERINE Shooting in Vancouver

It looks like the Man of Steel won't be the only superhero visiting the filming hotbed of Vancouver this fall. 20th Century Fox and Marvel's next team effort of The Wolverine will also be shooting north of the border under the directorial guidance of James Mangold.

The revelation from The Vancouver Sun comes just a day after a casting call for Warner Bros. Superman revealed that Snyder would be shooting from September to January 2012 in and around the same area. With the production window on the next Wolverine film rapidly approaching, we should expect more casting confirmations in the near future.  Hugh Jackman returning to his title character seems to be the only confirmed cast member at the moment.

Here's what the Sun had to say:

Hugh Jackman and the cast of Wolverine 2 will be heading to Vancouver in November to round up a star-studded year of Hollywood blockbusters filmed here in B.C. Filming of the action flick is set to take place Nov. 11 to March 1, 2012 at Canadian Motion Picture Park in Burnaby, where scenes from Twilight, Supernatural and Fantastic Four were filmed.

Mangold is directing from a screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie. The writer's story will reportedly center on Logan beginning a forbidden romance with a Japanese woman whose hand in marriage is, unfortunately, promised to another man. Since Logan won't take "no" for an answer, it puts him into battle with her father and her samurai-sword-wielding brothers and Silver Samurai.

James Mangold to direct? Cool! I would vastly prefer him to Aranofsky.

Maybe Wolverine'll stick his claws up Superman's butt.

Anyway I'm glad to hear they've finally set things to get underway. For a while it seemed the film was going to be stuck in DH

What I find ironic is, Supes is being filmed in Vancouverwhile the Avengers is being filmed in Cleveland - Guess were Superman was created?

Thats right, In Cleveland! Damn DC you guys try to screw everything up.

Meanwhile i thought the majority of this movie was going to be filmed in Japan? Last time I looked, Canada is pretty damn far from the home of Mt Fuji.

With Aronovsky the movie was either going to be insanely good or insanely bad with almost no chance of landing anywhere in the middle.  I was all for taking the gamble, it couldn't have been worse than Jackman's last 2 "X" flicks.  Now, I just don't know.  At least comments attributed to Aronovsky indicated that he understood the ugly brutal aspect of Wolvie, especially from his solo series.  I don't want this to suck and it doesn't have to so fingers crossed.

I find it very ironic that Wolverine will be primarily shot in Vancouver despite taking place in Japan, and yet the reason that Aronofsky fed the public on why he was leaving the production was because of how long they'd be shooting in Japan.  Doesn't pass the smell test for me, which once again shows Fox's meddling in a director's vision for an X-Men film.  I still hope it's good, and considering the writing and directing talents behind the film, it has that chance.
