Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced (3/17/11--Aronofsky quits)

Director Darren Aronofsky revealed the title on Saturday for the new Wolverine movie starring Hugh Jackman. The movie, to be titled The Wolverine, will not be a sequel to the Gavin Hood-directed X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Aronofsky told HitFix that The Wolverine will be a "one-off," or standalone project. The script, written by Christopher McQuarrie, involves Logan beginning a forbidden romance with a Japanese woman whose hand in marriage is, unfortunately, promised to another man. Since Logan won't take "no" for an answer, it puts him into battle with her father and her samurai-sword-wielding brothers.

A release date has not been set yet for the film.

So glad the title is nice and simple, and not something silly like X-Men Origins: Wolverine Rises.

"The" Wolverine? Ugh. Just call it Wolverine 2. Or WOLVERINE: I'M TURNING JAPANESE.

Yeah, I would have called it Wolverine 2. The Wolverine is a lot like The Final Destination. That being said, I appreciate the simplicity.

Re: Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced

He is called "The Wolverine" all the time in the comics...I fucking love it! And the fact that he lost his memory at the end of "Origins" makes it so easy to continue on with no connection to that previous piece of shit and yet still have it make sense within the story. You can "forget" about Origins the same way the character does!

Aronofsky, McQuarrie, Jackman, Libatique, hopefully Mansell et al are making my pants bulge.

Re: Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced

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.

Re: Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced

I really want this conversation to happen:

Secondary character: Who are you?

Logan: I'm The Wolverine

SC: Really? You've named yourself after the Wolverine?

Logan: Yeah, you know wolves and stuff.. me in the wild with the wolves.. that sort of hardcore stuff

SC: Em.. a Wolverine isn't a type of wolf, it's a weasel.

Logan: Yeah.. wolves and stuff and... what? A weasel? I'm named after a weasel?

What Aronosfky means is that The Wolverine isn't a sequel in the traditional sense, meaning it won't directly reference the events of the first film but it probably won't outright contradict the events of the first film, either. You can probably go into watching The Wolverine without having seen X-Men Origins: Wolverine and have no problem comprehending the story.

I agree. The film is shaping up so well I'm just immeasurably excited. It's hard to think at least two movies ago we were getting hacks like Brett Ratner directing these movies, and now we have big name talents like Matthew Vaughn, Darren Aronosfky, and of course Bryan Singer.

This along with X-Men: First Class is getting me excited about X-Men movies again. Honestly, I know this sounds almost blasphemousness considering my reputation, but I'm quite possibly looking forward to both The Wolverine and X-Men: First Class more than The Dark Knight Rises at this point.

Darren Aronosfky directing a Wolverine film starring Hugh Jackman, written by Christopher McQuarrie, shot by Matthew Libatique, and possibly scored by Clint Mansell is just inconceivably amazing. It's an exciting time to be an X-Men fan.

I don't think I've ever seen a comic where he's called 'The Wolverine'.

I guess Wolverine: Tokyo Drift was rejected.

Re: Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced

I am intrigued.

Is this based on the four-part limited series, at all? (Jesus--was it really published in 1982? That makes me feel really, really old. )

It sounds similar, but different.

I think he's been called that in issues. Also, the boxing announcer called him that in the first X-Men film.

It is based on Marvel Brothel.
