Wolverine 2 – Sequel Set In Japan?

X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2 - Sequel Set In Japan?
Audience tracking is suggesting a huge opening weekend for X-Men Origins: Wolverine, so what can you expect from Wolverine 2 if expectations are met?

Hugh Jackman is the first actor since Christopher Reeve to play the same superhero in four movies. And he says he’ll keep playing the character as long as the fans want him. This is partly because his own production company produced the last two X-Men movies (big money), and partly because his career hasn’t really ignited outside of the role. Of course he may enjoy it too.

And Jackman’s very clear where he wants Wolverine 2 set –

“I want another one. Yeah, damn it. Of course. The most intriguing thing to me was the Japanese saga. I wanted to do the Japan story from around X-Men 2. Can you just picture Wolverine in Japan with the triads and the samurai? It’s just genius. Comedically and dramatically.”

“I love the idea of this kind of anarchic character, the outsider, being in this world — I can see it aesthetically, too — full of honor and tradition and customs and someone who’s really anti-all of that, and trying to negotiate his way. The idea of the samurai, too — and the tradition there. It’s really great. In the comic book he gets his ass kicked by a couple of samurai — not even mutants. He’s shocked by that at first. …There’s also a great, very intricate story there with Mariko.”

** SPOILER ** Indeed, one of the scenes after the credits of X-Men Origins: Wolverine shows Wolverine “drinking to remember” in a bar in Japan. The head of Fox Studios has said these secret endings hint at where the series would be headed. ** END SPOILER **

Besides Wolverine 2, you may see any of four potential spin-offs. The script for X-Men Origins: Magento is completed and waiting to see how Wolverine fairs at the box office. There is also the strong possibilty of a Gambit movie, and/or a Deadpool movie. And then there’s X-Men: First Class, which focuses on the youthful mutants in Professor X’s first class – it’s said that Wolverine will feature there in at least a cameo.

What do you want to see happen in Wolverine 2? Which of the 4 spin-offs would you be most interested in seeing? Leave your comments below.

    A lot of different options are possible for the next movie, I wonder how the directors figure out what’s next.

    What I really want to see again is Gambit and maybe another human jumper (teleporter). The deadpool villein I don’t think they should build too much on, he’s too much like a machine and to me just no that of a cool character. Kinda creepy though. The original dude that he was at the beginning was cooler because he actually talks.
    “Guys! they’re all dead, you can come in now.”

      Deadpool would be able to talk, if you watch beyond the credits, you see deadpool’s alive and the stitches across his lips tore, then the lips healed… just so you know 😛

    Why not bring back PROFESSOR X CYCLOPS AND JEAN in X MEN 4. Keep that story going now that we know magneto is getting his powers back like they showed at the end of the movie and also find a way to put professor x back in his body..oh yeah he’s dead but true x men fans know who can bring dead people back. that way you can bring gambit into the franchise….oh and the mutant i was reffering to who can bring back the dead is SYNISTER

    bring on all those films just do them right,have bryan singer come back.do the sentinle story in first class with sinister,and have apocalypse in the magneto film,and do a district-x film with bishop as a detective chasing wanted mutants and have beak,chamber,husk,and prosimian show up as well as other cameos of ones who don’t show in the other films that would be a master film right there if fox would pull it head out of it @$$.we also need a x-4 to bring cyclops back or at least give the others more screen and there story and a better ending that does not leave it open.

    I would like to see a x men 4, wolverine 2, and a deadpool movie. I have always been a fan of the x-men, wolverine 2 i think would be bad ass every one wants to know more about his origins, everybody likes deadpool the merk with a mouth as long as he is actually the crap talking deadpool this time, that was my favorite thing about him. It kinda sucked they had his mouth sewed shut in origins.

    I want to see them throw in a lot of characters in any of the movies. In Japan, they should at least have Sunfire, Silver Samurai and even Psylocke and The Hand.

    what about doing more with wolverines brother? sabertooth would be a fun one to follow, or even storm…. i suppose that wolverine 2 would follow up some on sabertooth, and if it does, i hope that they show why he ended up more animal than man in X1. Also, I hope that if an X4 is made, they bring sabertooth back, he never actually died in the first one, you know because a cop was mauled “as if by a bear” after the fight between sabertooth and wolverine
