IGN recently interviewed rumored director Duncan Jones about The Wolverine. right now he's only in the running but he chimed in with his thoughts during the interview.
Highlights of what Jones had to say;
I think he's a great character, and I don't want to go dangerous ground here, but I'd say he's more interesting to me than Batman. I think they've made a very successful run of films with that and I think a good Wolverine film could be an amazing thing."
He's got a sense of humour and he's gruff. And he's kind of pissed off at everyone. I like that.
I love the fact that Jones loves making sci-fi movies and he is a damn good director! Everybody in the audience seemes pretty stoked about it too, if he takes the gig that is.
