So far the X-Men spin-off movies that focus on Wolverine have been nowhere near as good as the regular X-Men franchise. Without much dissension, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is regarded abysmal. And while The Wolverine was a huge step up, it still felt like it was missing something.
But since Wolverine 3 is going to be the last time Hugh Jackman puts on the claws, he wants to make sure it’s the movie fans have been waiting for. In a recent interview, Jackman talked about Wolverine 3 development, opening up a bit about how Professor X (Patrick Stewart) factors in, and also reaffirming his dedication to a quality story, so much that he’s not yet guaranteeing that the movie will happen just yet.

Despite having a March 3, 2017 release date, we’ve heard very little about The Wolverine 2.

There have been rumors, of course, but with three X-Universe films coming out before that – X-Men Apocalypse, Deadpool and Gambit – we really don’t know where Wolverine will be once his next solo film is released.
The director was asked, via Twitter, when the film would shoot. He offered up a concrete, albeit obvious piece of information. The Wolverine 2 will begin filming in early 2016. Read more about the Wolverine 2 update below. Read More »
