I've said it before, I'll say it again: sequel titles that are just the previous movie title followed by a number are lame. The Wolverine
isn't much better, but it least it avoids the number syndrome.
Besides, Wolverine 2
would be as illogical a title as Rambo III
, because the first film wasn't called Wolverine
, it was called X-Men Origins: Wolverine
And what do they mean, not a sequel? Just that it won't be directly referencing any events or plotlines from the previous movie? Or that it will be in a different continuity altogether despite having the same star? It sounds like just a bit of spin control to distance themselves from the previous film.
