Hugh Jackman Talks The Wolverine Sequel Plans

“I don’t want to dive into another one until we have a compelling reason to do another one,” he explains. “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… 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.”

To date, Mangold’s The Wolverine has grossed $414.7 million at the worldwide box office and is the second-highest grossing film in the “X-Men” franchise behind X-Men: The Last Stand‘s $459.4 million.

Including the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, the film will mark Hugh Jackman’s eighth appearance as the character on the big screen. What do you want to see happen in the new movie? Sound off below!
