Following the huge success of the movie The Wolverine, which has made over $400m worldwide, there has already been plenty of talk about a potential The Wolverine sequel being made. Now, The Wolverine star Hugh Jackman has opened up about the possible sequel, admitting that there were some interesting ideas being talked about.
Jackman told EW, "I was on the phone with Jim Mangold last night. There are some really cool ideas that I’m dying to tell you, but that would be giving away a secret that is not even [fully] formed yet. I do want to do it with Jim and with [producer] Lauren Shuler-Donner because we had such a great experience. I’m really proud of The Wolverine."
He added, "I don’t want to dive into another one until we have a compelling reason to do another one. I love the character, he’s kind of like a best friend to me, and I don’t ever want to take [him] or the fans for granted. … I think we’ve got a great opportunity to make something really cool, but it has to be great. That’s what we’re all working toward."
Hugh Jackman has already played Wolverine on the big screen on six separate occasions and will reprise the role once again, for the upcoming movie X-Men: Days of Future Past, which opens on May 22, 2014 in the UK and then on May 23, 2014 in the US.
