Next year, Marvel's mutant superhero known as Wolverine will turn 40. That's four decades of stories. Four decades of being one of the most popular comic book characters on the planet. Four decades of amazing comics and more than a few lousy comics. And, of course, four decades of trivia.

'The Wolverine' Director James Mangold on Making a New Kind of Superhero Movie

'The Wolverine' is not what you expect. It is very much a self-contained, somewhat “smaller” superhero movie. More straightforward thriller/noir/espionage film than CGI-heavy slugfest. It's less of a surprise, however, when you look at director James Mangold's body of work.
From 'Cop Land' to 'Girl, Interrupted' to '3:10 To Yuma' to 'Walk the Line' to 'Knight and Day' (which I really liked, by the way) to 'Identity' to 'Heavy,' he's had a go at nearly every genre. Now he's teamed up with Hugh Jackman, taking Logan from atop a hermit's mountain to the bullet trains of Japan.
I had the good fortune to speak with Mangold recently, and he really knows his stuff when it comes to movies.

As you know, a Wolverine one got made and the much talked about Magneto movie did not. However, a statement from a certain influential comic book writer has the internet buzzing again -- what became of that Magneto movie? Will it ever actually get made?
