Hugh Jackman Provides Update On Status Of ‘The Wolverine’ Sequel

While we know that director James Mangold will return to direct and that this will be his last outing as the character, the details regarding the next solo outing for Hugh Jackman as Wolverine have been a bit scarce.  Promoting his latest film Eddie The Eagle at Sundance, Jackman provided an update on the status of the film which is currently set to hit theaters next year.

As far as when they’ll start shooting, Jackman stated that they don’t “have a firm date yet.

My thing and I’ve told you and I’ve told everyone, it’s my last one, for me I want it to be perfect, so the moment I know it’s perfect, bang, we’ll go.”

Very curious to see where they take this film in a post-Days Of Future Past world. There’s been rumors that the film will take influence from the Old Man Logan storyline but those are currently just rumors at the moment. Let us know your thoughts on Jackman’s comments and what you hope to see in the next solo Wolverine film in the comments section below.
