There are reasons to be skeptical of 'The Wolverine' - Hugh Jackman's return to the Marvel character that made him famous. For one, director Darren Aronofsky dropped out before shooting (and was later replaced by James Mangold). For another, the last two major appearances of Wolverine have been really crappy movies. Hugh Jackman knows this and that's why he's preaching that 'The Wolverine' will be a very different adventure.
James Mangold's currently filming 'The Wolverine' has one thing going for it: there's no way it could ever be as bad as its predecessor, 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine.' Like, no way. The only direction this character can go is up. With that said, we're cautiously excited to see the further adventures of Hugh Jackman's adamantium clawed mutant warrior, especially since the movie will follow one of the character's most famous and acclaimed storylines.
And thanks to a few set photos, we know that, for at least one scene, Wolverine will look like a homeless person.
James Mangold’s ‘The Wolverine’ has arrived in Australia to begin production, and the director held a press conference with star Hugh Jackman and local media to announce the crew’s arrival. While at the event, reporters were invited to shoot photos of some of the set work. Needless to say, those images raced their way to the Internet for all of us to peruse.
That sequel to the abysmal 'Wolverine' film is still a thing that's happening, and it looks like they're serious because cast members are being announced for the film, set to take place in Japan.
Coming off the high of 'X-Men: First Class,' it's not surprising that 20th Century Fox is ready to have two 'X-Men' films shooting in the next year. We've already mentioned that 'X-Men: First Class 2' (or whatever it's called) will start filming in early 2013, but it seems that 'The Wolverine' is going to be first out the gate with an August start date.
If you stayed through the end credits of ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine,’ you know that Hugh Jackman teased the direction of the inevitable sequel, and that the mutant antihero finally would be heading to Japan. A new image has popped up online that could be a teaser poster for 'The Wolverine' and hints at the film's new location.
