Filmmaker James Mangold has confirmed that filming on the third standalone “The Wolverine” movie won’t begin for another year.
Mangold posted a tweet today which said shooting on the project, his second film with Jackman in the character following their collaboration on 2013’s “The Wolverine,” will begin early 2016 – a full year out from its current March 2017 release date.
Jackman has a busy 2015 ahead as he has to finish “Chappie” promotion, film “X-Men: Apocalypse,” do promotional rounds for “Pan,” and filming the P.T. Barnum biopic “The Greatest Showman on Earth”.
Patrick Stewart has previously teased that his version of Professor X will team up with Logan in the new Wolverine film which David James Kelly is currently writing the script for.
