The Wolverine director James Mangold has opened up about his decision to set the movie after the events of the X-Men 3 film. James says that, while The Wolverine does not act as a direct sequel to X-Men 3, he did feel that it was the perfect place for Logan to be in the movie.
Hugh Jackman ripped as Wolverine
Mangold told Entertainment Weekly, “It’s set after X-Men 3, but I wouldn’t call it a sequel to X-Men 3. You have a choice the second you enter a world like this with a huge amount of comic books, backstories, three movies, a Wolverine origins movie … You have decide where you’re going to exist in relation to all these other things, particularly if you’re working with an actor who actually played the character in other films.”
He added, “I felt it was really important to find Logan at a moment where he was stripped clean of his duties to the X-Men, his other allegiances, and even stripped clean of his own sense of purpose. I was fascinated with the idea of portraying Logan as a ronin – the definition of which is a samurai without a master, without a purpose.”

James continued, “Kind of a soldier who is cut loose. War is over. What does he do? What does he face? What does he believe anymore? Who are his friends? What is his reason for being here anymore? I think those questions are especially interesting when you’re dealing with a character who is essentially immortal.”
The Wolverine sees the return of Hugh Jackman as Logan and it has also been rumoured that Famke Janssen could be set for a cameo in the film, although this has yet to be officially confirmed. The Wolverine is set to be released on July 26 in both the US and the UK.
