Hugh Jackman Says James Mangold Has “Really Cool” Ideas For ‘The Wolverine’ Sequel
  |  @   |  

James Mangold‘s The Wolverine could have been a bonafide hit had it not been for some unfortunate scheduling. By the time the film made its debut audiences were pretty much superheroed out. But the film still managed to be a relative hit, even giving Fox enough confidence to explore a sequel and give Mangold another opportunity to direct.

The Wolverine is due out on Blu-ray/DVD early next month, so talks of the unconfirmed sequel are still in the works. But Hugh Jackman isn’t one to shy away from talking about the sequel, even if he already feels tired of playing the hero seven times already. In fact some of the ideas being tossed around are “really cool.” Hit the jump to find out more.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jackman said that he has been talking to Mangold on the phone about some of the ideas for a sequel. Of course since nothing is confirmed, the actor couldn’t quite delve into the details of those ideas, but apparently they are “really cool.”

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.

It’s hard to predict where the story could go after what Wolverine has been through in the course of seven films. And while that doesn’t give us many options, Jackman’s interest in revisiting the character is a complete 180 from what he said about reprising it back in June:

“I wasn’t even sure after the first [stand-alone] film if I would do another, I won’t say never, because I’m still loving it. But there would have to be a pretty compelling reason.”

The next time we’ll see Jackman portraying Logan/Wolverine is in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days Of Future Past, which opens in theaters May 23, 2014.
