Hugh Jackman Chats Next Potential WOLVERINE Film with James Mangold

We discussed how James Mangold and Hugh Jackman may be re-teaming for another "Wolverine" movie, after the success of their latest film venture "The Wolverine". The film racked up over $414 million at the worldwide box office, making it the second-highest grossing film within the "X-Men" franchise behind "X-Men: The Last Stand", which made over $459 million.

Jackman stated, "I was on the phone with Jim Mangold last night. There are some really cool ideas that I’m dying to tell you, but that would be giving away a secret that is not even [fully] formed yet."

With the release of Bryan Singer's upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past", it will mark the seventh time Jackman has appeared as the character. Apparently after that film releases, his contract with Fox is up, so it would have to be renegotiated in order to see him reprise the character again.

The interest is definitely intact however, as Jackman stated, "I do want to do it with Jim and with [producer] Lauren Shuler-Donner because we had such a great experience. I’m really proud of The Wolverine."

On the process, Jackman said, "I don’t want to dive into another one until we have a compelling reason to do another one. I love the character, he’s kind of like a best friend to me, and I don’t ever want to take [him] or the fans for granted.…I think we’ve got a great opportunity to make something really cool, but it has to be great. That’s what we’re all working toward."

I loved the dark and gritty tone set by Mangold and thought Jackman was more fierce than ever in the last installment. Hopefully he doesn't decide to hang up the claws and we get to see him as the superhero again.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
