Warning: There are potential spoilers for The Wolverine below.
Fox Creative Consultant Mark Millar once referred to The Wolverine as Fox’s answer to Iron Man, meaning the start of an expanded and interconnected universe. Now it appears they’re really trying to answer Iron Man.
JoBlo is reporting on a small re-shoot for the film in Montreal. According to their source, a short scene was being filmed, potentially for a post-credits stinger like Nick Fury’s appearance in Iron Man, that saw Logan entering an airport and being greeted by Patrick Stewart as Professor Xavier.
Now, this raises many points if it turns out to be true. The first of which is that The Wolverine has long been confirmed to take place after the events of X-Men: The Last Stand, and if you recall Xavier died in that film. If you think back further though, the post-credits scene in that film teased Xavier’s “revival” in the body of his braindead twin brother on Muir Island. Xavier would be able to walk in his “new body” and JoBlo‘s sources report that he was in fact not in a wheelchair for the shoot.
Why is Xavier coming to visit Logan at an airport? Could it be to setup the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past? Treat all of this as a rumor for now, but feel free to sound off with your theories below!
