‘THE WOLVERINE’ IS NOT A SEQUEL
According to a resent statement from Hugh Jackman, the lastest installment to the Wolverine brand, The Wolverine, is not a sequel to 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
“We’ve deliberately not called it Wolverine 2 because we want it to be placed and feel like a standalone picture. With an all-new cast and setting it in Japan, it’s going to give us a whole new visual aesthetic. The approach to character means we won’t be overloaded with mutants and teams and the like, so it’ll be more character-based. I think in many ways it will feel like a completely different X-Men film.”
