Production On ‘Wolverine 2’ May Get Pushed Back To 2012
  |  @   |  

Well, the good news for fans wanting to see Wolverine 2 (also called The Wolverine) has been few and far between since Darren Aronofsky was forced to leave the film.

That trend continues, with word that Twentieth Century Fox is pondering maybe pushing production back from fall of 2011 to spring of 2012. Despite the sequel promising to tell Wolverine’s Samurai storyline in Japan, fans haven’t seemed all that thrilled about the movie after X–Men Origins: Wolverine angered the masses, and so the delay probably wouldn’t bother anyone. Plus, the wait wouldn’t be all that much longer for those of you who do happen to be interested in seeing how they try and make it up to the fans.

Speaking of Japan, it also appears that shooting the film there””as was planned and assumed necessary to convey the proper tones and subtleties needed for the Samurai storyline””might not happen as well. Because of “weather–related considerations,” finding the right locations is proving to be difficult, so Fox may instead need to shoot it in Canada, or at least shoot in both Canada and Japan.

Another obstacle that could delay production is star Hugh Jackman, who also needs to film Les Miserable. Fox could be forced to wait until he finishes filming that project before finally being able to get Wolverine 2 underway.

Once things do get moving again, the movie will be directed by James Mangold, who also directed Knight & Day, Cop Land, Kate & Leopold, Identity, 3:10 to Yuma, Girl, Interrupted, and Walk the Line.

I vote for Fox to let all this play out as it will, and move forward with the Deadpool everyone wants to see. The one that could, if done right, really make up for the first Wolverine.

  2. Not so excited about a Wolverine sequel. Deadpool needs to be a priority and he needs to be done right this time!

  3. if it is anything like the last one, I wouldn’t be surprised if the swords used were lightsaber like, wolverine can fly and Omega Red is his dog that wears a purple cape and shoots laser beams from his eyes.
