Story details are under wraps. This will be the third solo outing for the popular mutant. It will be the 8th time Hugh Jackman as portrayed the character in a feature film.
The Old Man Logan comic book story has been rumored as the basis for Wolverine 3 for quite some time, but an unconfirmed report from June claimed the sequel will not be based on that comic, which was created by Mark Millar. The Old Man Logan adaptation would be difficult to pull off, since several characters in that story are controlled by Marvel Studios. The story follows Logan, who retires as a superhero and travels the country, where he runs into several different heroes and villains, such as Hulk, Red Skull and Hawkeye.
All that we know for sure about Wolverine 3 is that Hugh Jackman is set to star, with James Mangold (The Wolverine) set to direct from a script by Michael Green. Production is scheduled to to begin in early 2016, with 20th Century Fox setting a March 3, 2017 release date. Do you think Liev Schreiber should come back as Sabretooth in Wolverine 3?Read More
This isn't by any means a confirmation that Liev Schreiber will appear in Wolverine 3, and the actor could just be joking around with his former co-star. Hugh Jackman sent out Wolverine 3 artwork on his Twitter page recently, asking fans what they want to see in the superhero movie sequel. While fans clearly want to see Sabretooth return, we have no clue if the actor and filmmaker James Mangold actually have plans to implement these ideas into the script by Michael Green (Green Lantern).
Production is scheduled to begin early next year on Wolverine 3, with 20th Century Fox already setting a March 3, 2017 release date. Hugh Jackman has confirmed several times that this will be his last time playing Logan. It was recently confirmed that Patrick Stewart will be back as Professor X, but no other cast members have been confirmed.Read More
Sabretooth was originally played by Tyler Mane in the superhero movie that started it all, 2000's X-Men, but the character was most recently played by Liev Schreiber in the 2009 prequel X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It isn't known for certain if Victor Creed/Sabretooth will be brought back, or if Liev Schreiber would even be interested in reprising that role. There were previously rumors that the comic book story known as Old Man Logan would be used for this final Wolverine adventure, but those reports were recently debunked, so we'll have to wait and see what this story will center on.
James Mangold (The Wolverine) is directing from a script by Michael Green. Patrick Stewart recently revealed that he will be back as Professor X, although his character will be much different than previous incarnations. Patrick Stewart teased that his character may have been altered from the changes in the timeline at the end of last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Hopefully we'll get confirmation regarding the actor's role before production starts early next year.Read More
It was first rumored, and then later confirmed by the actor himself, that Patrick Stewart will be returning as Professor X, aka Charles Xavier, in 2017's Wolverine 3. Now, speaking with ScreenRant, Patrick Stewart teases that we may be seeing a Professor X who has been altered by the changing timelines set up in X-Men: Days of Future Past and is probably more influenced by James McAvoy's take on the character. The actor, who has played Charles Xavier in every X-Men movie to date except for X-Men: First Class, doesn't really know too much about this new take on Charles, but he finds himself intrigued by the possibilities.
We all know that Wolverine 3 will mark Hugh Jackman's last turn as the indestructible Mutant Logan, and he only beats Patrick Stewart by one movie in terms of appearances, being the only actor to appear in all 7 X-Men movies that have been released. And it's been teased that will continue, as the actor will surely have cameos, if not a much more substantial role, in the three movies planned for next year, which include X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool and Gambit. Patrick Stewart, on the other hand, will fall way behind, as he's already confirmed that he's not showing up in X-Men: Apocalypse.Read More
20th Century Fox already has a March 3, 2017 release date penciled in for Wolverine 3, with production on this superhero movie set to begin in early 2016. This will mark the eighth and final time that Hugh Jackman plays Logan. He previously starred in X-Men (2000), X2: X-Men United (2003), X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), X-Men: First Class (2011), The Wolverine (2013) and X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).
There was a cryptic conversation between Hugh Jackman and director Bryan Singer at Comic-Con, which appeared to hint that he may appear in next year's X-Men: Apocalypse, but we'll have to wait and see. What do you think about Patrick Stewart coming aboard as Professor X in Wolverine 3? Chime in with your thoughts and stay tuned for more on this highly-anticipated superhero project.Read More
All we know about Wolverine 3 so far is that James Mangold is directing from a screenplay by Michael Green (Green Lantern). Production is slated to begin in early 2016 on Hugh Jackman's Wolverine 3, with 20th Century Fox already slating a March 3, 2017 release date. Hugh Jackman also recently hinted that he could have a cameo appearance in Deadpool, and a cryptic exchange with director Bryan Singer at Comic-Con hinted that Logan may show up in X-Men: Apocalypse as well.
We also reported last month that the Old Man Logan story line from the comics will not be used, contrary to previous rumors. The story followed Logan as he retired from being a superhero, as he wandered across America, running into a number of Marvel superheroes. That comic book story would have been difficult to adapt, though, since Marvel Studios holds the rights to several of the characters featured in that comic.Read More
