Twentieth Century Fox has begun negotiations with James Mangold to return for another installment of The Wolverine, with Hugh Jackman bringing back his signature character with the razor sharp adamantium hooks. This comes after The Wolverine played very strongly overseas, enough to now sit as the second highest grossing X-Men film of all time. The film has grossed $413 million worldwide, with $132 million domestic and $280 million in international revenue.

 

Here it is right now. Mangold is making a deal to write the treatment, with X-Men franchise matriarch Lauren Shuler Donner producing. The storyline is being kept under tight wraps. I think Mangold did a bang up job on his first superhero film. When I met him at Comic-Con San Diego, he said he tried to veer from the usual superhero formula–if hero doesn’t succeed, world is doomed–and instead make it a character-driven storyline. There were plenty of action pieces, samurai swordplay and reasons for Logan to work up that famous temper, but at its core the film worked because the stakes were subtler and the storytelling somehow more intimate. Mangold is repped by WME and Management 360, Jackman by WME.

 

I'm up for it.

If they retcon Sabertooth's demise from X-Men and bring back Liev Schreiber I am for this.

2016 or 2017? FOX has never had 2 CBM in a year. What about FF2, X-Force, DOFP2 now this will they go to 2 a year? Elektra/FF in 2005, DD/X2 in 2003 so it has happened before.

Fox already has a packed summer 2016 with Dragon 3, Anubis and possibly ID4 Forever but I think July 29th would be good although it does depend on the competition somewhat, maybe March or April instead?

I think Fox is pretending origins did not exist.

Yes and no.

 

It's The Wolverine ii because X Men: Origins was a prequel (and it sucked).

But in any case, they are acting like X-Men Origins did not happen, so story-wise, this is The Wolverine II.

Maybe Fox will go for Christmas 2015. 

Why not put every movie in Christmas 2015?

for fucks sake, why not just only make X-Men movies now. Who is asking for another solo Wolverine movie.
