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.
Though Hugh Jackman and others have outright denied it, many fans still believe Wolverine 3 is going to be based on the classic Marvel comic story 'Old Man Logan', written by Mark Millar. One of the detracting factors from this becoming a reality is the fact that the comic book featured characters owned by Disney and Marvel Studios. Ones they're probably not willing to share. Hawkeye, who is a key player in Marvel's The Avengers, is also the secondary character in 'Old Man Logan'. Other characters include She-Hulk, King Pin, Red Skull and Black Bolt, just to name a few. Well, Mark Millar doesn't think that matters. In fact, he believes the story is strong enough to stand on its own without the help of these other Marvel owned characters.
Over the summer, Hugh Jackman asked fans to send him ideas for Wolverine 3. At the top of everyone's wish list was seeing 'Old Man Logan' brought to life on the big screen. During Comic-Con this past July, Hugh Jackman joked that it was going to serve as the basis for the script, and some fans took him a little too seriously. As far as we know, 'Old Man Logan' simply isn't happening. But Mark Millar hints that it should. Speaking with IGN, he explained how it could definitely work.Honestly, the continuity stuff is the most boring side of it. I kind of like it, keeping it in the X-Men universe a little, too, because comic fans are different from the mainstream world. I know this stuff backwards because I've lived my whole life loving this stuff, but most people don't know the entire minutia and everything so I think keeping it simplified and keeping it generally X-Men universe is a smarter thing to do.Read More
As you can see, nothing about Wolverine 3 is set in stone. The plan is for a 2016 shoot and a 2017 release, with that sounding on track as of now. Perhaps it will change, but we doubt it. What do you think? Does it sound like Hugh Jackman is on his way to having a career best movie under his belt with Wolverine 3?
Wolverine 3 comes to theaters March 3rd, 2017.Read More
Hugh Jackman made waves on the Internet yesterday when he mentioned Tom Hardy as a possible replacement for indestructible mutant Logan after Hugh's done with the character following Wolverine 3. As everyone knows by now, Wolverine 3 will be the final time Hugh Jackman dons the claws for 20th Century Fox and their X-Men franchise. Fans have continuously speculated about who may be called in to assume the position after 2017. And some even believe Fox may have a contender waiting in the wings. Fan art maestro BossLogic has taken it upon himself to show the word exactly what Tom Hardy would look like suited up in the inevitable reboot. The results are pretty impressive.
A lot of fans believe that Hugh Jackman is irreplaceable as Wolverine. But that has never stopped Hollywood from rebooting one of its more popular characters. No one can escape the reboot machine, not even Han Solo, who will be recast with a younger actor in an upcoming Star Wars Anthology movie set to hit screens in 2018. Audiences are growing accustomed to seeing new actors step into iconic roles. And if the casting right, fans may even embrace a new Logan. But should it be Tom Hardy?Read More
The story behind Wolverine 3 is shrouded in mystery. We've heard various rumors that it will and won't be based on the Old Man Logan comic book arc. What we know for a fact is that it will be Hugh Jackman's final turn at playing the indestructible mutant Logan. We also know that it will feature Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Charles Xavier (aka Professor X) in what has been called a co-starring role. Now, we know something else about the movie. The main root of the plot will be firmly centered around these two long-standing Marvel characters and their relationship to one another.
While both X-Men: Apocalypse stars Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy have stated that they would like to continue on with the roles of Magneto and Professor X following this latest sequel, Wolverine 3 will more than likely mark the last time we see Patrick Stewart in the role of Charles Xavier. So it's nice to see him get more than just a cameo. The two characters have had a strong friendship, both in the comic books and on the big screen, so it will be nice to see a different, more intimate side of that being shown.Read More
It isn't known if 20th Century Fox is actually mulling over who may replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, especially since production won't begin on Wolverine 3 until early 2016. We still don't have any confirmed plot details for Wolverine 3 yet, but there have been rumors that X-Men Origins: Wolverine star Liev Schreiber may be reprising his role as Sabretooth. James Mangold is directing from a script by Michael Green.
Tom Hardy is no stranger to the superhero world, having played the villainous Bane in 2012's The Dark Knight Rises, although he has yet to star in an adaptation of a Marvel comic book. We reported in August that the actor is attached to star in the DC Comics adaptation 100 Bullets, but it isn't known if he would even be interested in taking on the Wolverine role. Hugh Jackman was 32 years old when the first X-Men came out back in 2000. If in fact Tom Hardy does sign on at some point, the 38-year-old actor would be a bit older than his predecessor when taking over the role.Read More
