I mean, seriously, is this just some random guy they found hanging out on a street corner or something? What's so special about him? Is he blackmailing someone?

Re: THE WOLVERINE - Reviews and Discussion Thread

I'm glad they are getting a different writer for the next one. One of my qualms with The Wolverine was the writing. It featured strong performances and good direction, but the writing left much to be desired (especially in the third act).

Although his "body of work" doesn't really inform us whether or not he's actually talented or not. We'll just have to wait and see.

It should also be noted that Hugh Jackman is confirmed to reprise the role of Logan/Wolverine for what might be his eighth or ninth appearance (depending on if he appears as Wolverine in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse). I think we can safely say he will be one of the only -if not the only - actor to play a superhero for such a long duration. Why do I have a feeling that this next solo Wolverine movie might be his last?

Maybe he just knows someone personally. Or someone watched that one short film and liked it. Just because he has only one item in his IMDB entry doesn't mean that's the only thing he ever did. But it's still weird. Some people struggle forever, and some just randomly fall upon it.

It's unlikely but might they consider acknowledging Hugh's age and doing Old Man Wolverine as a film before rebooting or recasting?

Jackman is only 45. They could go on another 10 - 15 years before having to do that.

Re: THE WOLVERINE - Reviews and Discussion Thread

Well, by the time Apocalypse and Wolverine 3 are under his belt, he'll be heading for 50. So one more solo outing could see him doing that storyline, though he'd probably look a fair bit younger than OMW looked in the comics. As I say, it's unlikely but it might be one way of dealing with the fact that Hugh's not getting any younger.

Re: THE WOLVERINE - Reviews and Discussion Thread

I would love to see Old Man Logan used as the source material for The Wolverine 2 or Wolverine 3 or whatever you wanna call it. It is probably fairly unlikely, though.

Hugh Jackman himself has even admitted that he can't keep on playing this character forever. I think he mentioned the work out regimen to get into shape as Wolverine is getting tiresome as he gets older. I know he loves playing this character, but he expressed doubt about returning for another solo movie, so I think his time is close to being done playing the character.

I can see this next solo Wolverine project being the last time he'll play the character. If Fox is smart, they will promote it as such to boost box office sales. WB was smart to play up the fact that The Dark Knight Rises was Christopher Nolan's last Batman movie even though we're going to see Batman again in 2016.

Not a fan of "Old Man Logan". I'd rather see a story set in Madripoor with Logan in his "Patch" persona done on the big screen.

Old Man Logan is probably too impossible to pull off regardless without seriously compromising the story. A story set in Madripoor is much more likely.

It's really not that unusual. He probably has a couple of unproduced spec scripts floating around Hollywood that the agency people etc. really like. The new writers of Star Trek 3 don't have any produced credits to their name, either.

Despite it's flaws, X-Men Origins: Wolverine isn't a horrible movie. It's not great, either, but it's far from terrible. It's like Green Lantern: so much potential, so little done with that potential.
I liked X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It's not as good as any of the movies that have Singer's involvement but it has its good points. In particular, I think it has some great casting with Liev Schreiber, Danny Huston, Dominic Monaghan, & Ryan Reynolds.

Hopefully it will be about Wolverine facing Omega Red in Russia!
Isn't Omega Red a fish oil vitamin supplement?

Why did Jackman bulk up so much for X-Men Origins: Wolverine?
In X-men 1,2 and 3 he wasn't so muscled, and I didn't find it really necessary

Jackman, via IGN Movies, says he's not yet signed for a third Wolvie flick, and that "if I did another one, I’m 99.9 percent sure it would be the last."

Sounds no Wolvie in Apocalypse, then.

I'm pretty sure he is signed for Apocalypse, and Wolverine 3 would be after Apocalypse.
