Yep. More Wolverine news. Except this is the part where Hugh Jackman talks the Wolverine sequel he wants to do. And he's not talking about it to just anybody, he is talking about it with writers. The kind of writers that write movies. It is no secret that Jackman wants to take the character Wolverine to Japan in the sequel, but here is what he has to say:
“I won’t lie to you, I have been talking to writers. I’m a big fan of the Japanese saga in the comic book. There are so many areas of that Japanese story. 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, and so many cool ways we could go.”
I think that this would make a much better film, instead of throwing in every possible mutant character you can gather together. It seems like this sequel idea would actually be able to focus more on the character Wolverine than the actual movie that is coming out is supposed to do. I would really like to see this movie happen, just leave all the other people that don't belong in it out. Jackman goes on to say:
“However, it was also another one of my goals that you could see the end of this movie parlaying straight into ['X-Men'], finding that guy in the bar, fighting, drinking, with not much recollection of what’s going on. I thought that was important. However, we’ll find out beginning of May if there’s still an audience for it, if people still like the character. There’s no point in telling the story if no one wants to hear it.”
So there it is. Do you want to see the Wolverine Japanese saga brought to life on the big screen? Or are you done?
