    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.

    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! :lol:

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

    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.

    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.

    I am intrigued.

    Is this based on the four-part limited series, at all? (Jesus--was it really published in 1982? :eek: 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.

    Cute.

    See, this is one reason it bugs me that they cast someone as tall as Hugh Jackman in the role. Wolverine is called that because he's small and scrappy like a wolverine. As far as I know, the movies have offered no alternative explanation for why someone who's 6'3" would adopt that name.

    If there is a chance that we will get Patch in this movie, I'll be even more excited.

    it sucks. why not called it 'Wolverine 2'? it's no different to Star Trek II being the next movie after the motionless picture but a stand-alone flick.

    'The Wolverine' sounds crap.

    thank christ the new Bat-flick didn't get called 'The Batman', that would've been lame with 'the wolverine' as well...

    I can't work it out either. I agree with your spin comment. But I can't help wondering if it means that the movie might be set post X3?

    You're so fickle. :p

    Unless they have a reason, they probably won't give it any definite time frame. It could happen either before or after for all it matters.

    Any guesses on which random mutant cameos will be in the movie?
