The Wolverine 2 To Hit 2017 Or 2018?

Turns out Hugh Jackman may be slipping back into his Wolverine outfit sooner than expected.

As we already know, filmmaker Bryan Singer is about to release “X-Men: Days of Future Past” this May and is already looking towards directing “X-Men: Apocalypse” sometime next year in time for a 2016 release.

Meanwhile, Jackman and his “The Wolverine” director James Mangold have been throwing about talk of doing a follow-up to last year’s stand-alone Wolvie film. However, they didn’t intend to move forward until they had something great in mind.

Looks like they may have figured it out. Responding to a fan on Twitter, Mangold says scheduling wise: “We are figuring it all out. At the moment, I’m shooting The next #Wolverine after #XmenApocalypse.”

That would put “The Wolverine” on target for a 2017 or 2018 release. Mangold is currently looking towards directing the mystery tale “The Deep Blue Goodbye” as his next film.
