Well of course they'll do "The Wolverine" first. Fox has already stated that it's still targeting a release for next year.
Which really makes me wonder how arrogant Fox is really... Or they're just plain nuts. 2012 is already swarming with competition - The Avengers
in May, Prometheus
and Star Trek XII
in June (though I doubt it), Spiderman
reboot and The Dark Knight Rises
in July, Totall Recall
remake in August, the new Bond
in October, a new Twilight
movie in November, Man of Steel
and The Hobbit
Holy cow... Well, if McQuarrie's script really IS as good as some people say, then maybe Wolverine stands a chance... James Mangold is a good director (IMO better than Aronofsky), and people do love High Jackman... But still, releasing a new instalment of a shaken
franchise (lets not fool ourselves, FC is by far the least successful X-Men movie to date) in a year in which 6 major franchises
return to the cinemas... We'll see...
