LOGAN Director James Mangold Wants to Make an X-23 Film and Says He'll Work With Hugh Jackman Again
Even though Logan is the last time that we'll see Hugh Jackman in the role of Wolverine, director James Mangold still has plans to work with him again. They seem to make for a great creative team, so I don't think fans would have any objections to seeing them make another movie together one day. While talking to We Got This Covered, Mangold said:
“I definitely know that Hugh and I will work together again.”
There's no word on when that will happen or what kind of film project that will be, but it seems like it's only a matter of time. Mangold went on to say that he'd definitely be down for making another comic book movie, and he's keen on working more with the character X-23, who makes her big screen debut in Logan. He said:
“I would love to see an X-23 film and that is something I would definitely be involved with.”
X-23 is certainly a badass character. I have no idea what Fox's plans are with the character beyond Logan, but it certainly looks like she's going to be a scene stealer in the movie. I'm sure that if Logan does well at the box office and fans express their excitement for X-23, then Fox will most likely move forward with something involving her.
There has been speculation about X-23 taking on the mantle of Wolverine in the upcoming X-Men films, but given the fact that Logan is not set in the same cinematic universe as the X-Men films, who knows how that would actually work.
Personally, from what I've seen of X-23, I'd love to see another movie that centers around her character! Until we get any additional updates on that, we still have the movie Logan to look forward to!
