We're running a little behind reporting this news, but it's always better late than never. In an interview with Empire magazine, The Wolverine director James Mangold revealed that his film won't be another prequel adventure as X-Men Origins: Wolverine was. While that Wolverine movie movie showed us events from Logan's past, none of the film's action took place past the late 1970s. By contrast the three X-Men movies were set in present day, placing them sometime in the 2000s.
"Where this film sits in the universe of the films is after them all," Mangold told Empire. "Jean Grey is gone, most of the X-Men are disbanded or gone, so there’s a tremendous sense of isolation for him."
This revelation comes as a surprise. In the Marvel Comics universe, Logan had his adventure in Japan while a member of the X-Men. As well, Empire published a new image from The Wolverine which shows Hugh Jackman's Logan sporting bone claws, which means that there will be at least one scene set before he received the adamantium that covered his skeleton.- Empire.

While attending the San Diego Comic-Con, Hugh Jackman addressed a question about who his on-screen nemesis will be in the next Wolverine picture. "I'll fight the Silver Samurai in it so that should be exciting," the actor said.
Introduced in the early 1980s as an adversary for the hero, The Silver Samurai is a skilled samurai warrior who is also a mutant. His power is to create a field that can surround any object, making it virtually indestructible and deadly. This power gives the samurai's swords an extra edge against his opponents.
Jackman also indicated that the plan is to start filming The Wolverine in October.- Dark Horizons. Comment on this Scoop (1)

A new name has emerged to direct The Wolverine: James Mangold, the guy that helmed last summer's Tom Cruise/Cameron Diaz action-comedy Knight & Day. Mangold was apparently the top candidate of a short list that included Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) and Gavin O'Connor (Warrior).
Fox still wants The Wolverine to begin filming this fall, but they better make sure that they make the new deadline. The reason? Hugh Jackman just signed to star in a new big screen adaptation of Les Miserables for Universal, and that studio wants to go into production before the end of the year.- Deadline.

At the press junket for his new movie Black Swan, director Darren Aronofsky told Hitfix that the title for his Wolverine sequel is The Wolverine. No number 2, no X-Men Origins prefix...just The Wolverine. To provide further evidence that his movie will be different from all previous outings for the character in movies, Aronofsky also referred to his movie's storyline as a "one-off."- Hitfix.

Hugh Jackman has started training to get back into Logan shape for the Wolverine sequel. "Expect to see four chicken breasts and a whole pile of steamed broccoli on my plate," the actor told Vulture's reporter while attending a NYC gala last night. "I'm starting; I'm having my six meals a day."
Jackman also commented on what seems like a done deal: getting Darren Aronofsky to direct the picture. "This is, hopefully for me, going to be out of the box. It's going to be the best one, I hope....Well, I would say that, but I really do feel that, and I feel this is going to be very different."
Taking the commentary on what Aronofsky will bring to a superhero movie, Jackman added, "This is Wolverine. This is not Popeye. He's kind of dark... But, you know, this is a change of pace. Chris McQuarrie, who wrote The Usual Suspects, has written the script, so that’ll give you a good clue. [Aronofsky’s] going to make it fantastic. There’s going to be some meat on the bones. There will be something to think about as you leave the theater, for sure."- Vulture. Comment on this Scoop (0)
