‘Wolverine’ Will Join ‘X-Men: First Class’ Sequel?

Wolverine may join up with X-Men: First Class For a while, there was a rumor going around that Hugh Jackman was bringing The Wolverine into X-Men: First Class for a cameo. While that was shot down (but still a possibility if they are indeed keeping it a surprise), producer Bryan Singer, director of the first two X-Men outings, has confirmed that there is a strong possibility Hugh Jackman will reprise his role as Logan in a future follow-up to X-Men: First Class.

This is what Bryan Singer had to say on the matter.

"I think there would definitely be room. I think it would be a very exciting thing. This universe has to establish itself first, but that would be a very interesting and fun thing."

Bryan Singer also claims that he is not scared of having an X-Men movie without The Wolverine.

"It's a completely different film. Xavier and Magneto are important characters as well. It's just a different X-Men film. I obviously love the character, but you can't not do it just because he's not in it."

The Wolverine was released July 26th, 2013.

X-Men: First Class was released June 3rd, 2011.

    well i for once liked Logans short cameo in First Class, it was funny! So i am open for another cameo. as i do agree bane5000 on what he said. that is what they should do.

    in my own words, they make "first class" 2 and 3. (and then maybe make wolverine 3. ) then make x-men 4,5,6. where the team rebuilds/reforms and cyclops becomes the leader..

        Nothing against Jackman, he's entertaining, but I agree with those that say this movie and it's sequels needs to be about the rest of the team and leave the Wolverine in his own movies.

          That's good, Wolverine is still one of the coolest characters in the Xmen universe.

            It looks like X-men is divided into two movies.

            One focuses on Wolverine and other X-men!!!!!!!!!!!!

                  But even then, that would have been in the 70's...not the 60's.

                    Dotn get me wrong i love Wolvie i mean hes gret but he was NOT around the X Men at that time...maybe if he shows up in an Alpha flight cross over but noit as an X Men member.

                          @shuabert Exactly, It just wouldn't fit in with the continuity. I say just scrap the idea...

                            I have no problem with Jackman showing up in prequels, but they would have to be careful how they did it if they want the continuity to line up with the other films. They made sure to not have Wolverine and Xavier meet in Xmen Origins because in the first X-Men film they're (apparently) meeting for the first time. If they have Wolverine join the X-Men at some point in the past it will make the 2000 film make no sense. He would have to be worked in subtly, perhaps meeting some of the characters but never interacting with the team or Xavier himself.

                              I say let this new trilogy be about X-men characters sans Wolverine, maybe tease his future appearance in the last film of this trilogy to tie in his coming into the first film, leave Wolverine to his solo movies for the time being

                              im sure the franchise will still be ok without having to jump and put him in a First Class sequel already

                              ...Im still hoping if they do plan to do the sequels in different decades 60's,70's and 80's, we get a young Storm with the mohawk for the 80's sequel :D

                                  They might as well just call this a rebooted series.

                                  Jackman owns Wolverine.

                                    Enough with the x men, Wolverine rides solo.

                                      @felipe-11 Hes a decent director but il admit most of his movies are a bit slow paced.

                                        Not sure about this. Im a huge wolverine fan, But im not checking out First class due to the fact that wolverine's not in it. I mean taking Wolverine out of an X men movie is like Taking Captain America out of an Avengers movie or Batman out of a JL movie, I mean you can do it but your taking out the main draw of franchise.

                                          @felipe-11 It wasn't half as good as the actual story. I'll give u the Usual Suspects. Even though it's the most overrated film of the 90s, it's by far his best film.
