Hugh Jackman teases 'The Wolverine' start date

After numerous delays and the loss of director Darren Aronofsky, The Wolverine appears to be moving forward. Hugh Jackman told a Toronto radio station, 98.1 CHFI, that the production will begin this fall. “We’re about to shoot another … movie,” Jackman said. “We shoot in October so it will probably come out a year after that.”

According to Fox, however, nothing is etched in stone just yet, as they are still in negotiations with director James Mangold (Knight & Day).

    Um, yeah. Remember when he said that “Wolverine Origins” would be “badass”?

    So… when he says this one is great, which he will, we can just go ahead and skip the movie, right?

    • I agree

      What? Where’s LOL to tell us that “America loves crap?” I guess he must be excited about the prospect of yet another terrible “Wolverine” flick (he DID like “Green Lantern” after all) and is busy making out with the poster of Hugh Jackman he has pasted to the wall as “Fresh Horses” plays in the background. Yes, I can see it quite clearly.

    No Aronofsky = No interest.

    have faith in mangold.

    Darren Aronofsky had given me real hope for this thing; even without him, I’m hoping that something of the script/story that attracted a director like Aronofsky in the first place still survives. The character deserves a better movie than Origins was.”

    I finally saw the Wolverine – Origins movie. My god it was awful! How do you put that many hot and talented actors in a film and still have it be so mind-numbingly stupid? Also: worst use of Ryan Reynold’s abs ever.

    I liked X1 and X2, hated X3 and X4, didn’t expect to like X5, but I did, so I’m not sure what to expect with this movie

    I love Jackman but he’s too old for the character. The X-men characters really are supposed to be in their teens and early twenties. They don’t really age in the comic book.

    To Robert Sass,
    Jackman’s character is in his early 30’s as a near-immortal mutant with a healing factor that retards aging. He’s not too old for the role now.

    / Thank you for the sensible ictrique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some study on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned a lot more clear from this post. I’m incredibly glad to see such fantastic information being shared freely out there.
