Following yesterday's news from Fox that 'Wolverine 3' will be released in 2017, following 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' we now have even more news about the upcoming 'Wolverine' sequel, which seems to be picking up steam pretty quickly even though its release is still a few years away: Hugh Jackman will indeed return as your favorite Canadian mutant, and David James Kelly will be providing the script for the newest installment.

‘Wolverine 3′ Shooting After ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ Says James Mangold

Twentieth Century Fox had a good thing going for it with 'The Wolverine,' which is saying something, considering most comic book fans have at least a handful of issues with swallowing some of their other superhero properties (e.g. 'Fantastic Four,' an oddly looking Quicksilver in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'?). So with 'Wolverine 3' continuing the legacy of the adamantium-clawed badass on screen, director James Mangold will hopefully churn out another success for the studio, but how far in the future might we see this in theaters?

‘The Wolverine’ Extended Edition: How Director James Mangold Made 2013 the Best Year for Superhero Films

The Wolverine Extended Cut
Fox

Recently, Fox screened the new director’s extended cut of ‘The Wolverine’ and hosted an interview with the film's director, James Mangold. Aside from the added 12 minutes of additional scene and violence, the extended cut highlights 2013 as the year Hollywood finally cracked how to make great comic-book movies. Though there has been amazing films made from the pages of Marvel and DC -- this year produced ‘Iron Man 3,’ ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘The Wolverine’ -- what makes these so special is how they've been informed by previous cinematic misfires.

Director James Mangold Confirms ‘Wolverine 3′ Will Follow an Existing Comic Storyline

When word arrived that director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman were in talks to return for a 'Wolverine 3' (we'll call it that for the time being, even though we hate that it reminds us of the existence of 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'), we openly wondered what existing storyline they would use for the film, or if they would tell a completely original tale. Mangold himself put to rest the notions that they would create their own 'Wolverine' story saying they "absolutely" will be adapting a popular comic storyline.

Which X-Man Almost Made It Into ‘The Wolverine’?

Arguably one of the most successful differences between James Mangold's 'The Wolverine' and Gavin Hood's flop of an 'X-Men Origins' tale was preventing the floodgate of various mutant appearances from diluting the story of Logan. The new character additions worked well, and aside from the post-credits scene, which saw the return of a couple familiar faces, Famke Janssen's Jean Grey was the only mutant from movies past. However, screenwriter Mark Bomback originally tried to squeeze in another well-known character into the film but ultimately scrapped the idea.

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

The Wolverine James Mangold Interview
20th Century Fox

'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.
