Hugh Jackman is set to play the character Wolverine one last time in a third standalone film in 2017. Jackman has already revealed a few things about the project, teasing the Old Man Logan storyline, as well as Patrick Stewart returning as Professor X. Whilst promoting Pan with Collider, Jackman has now given an update on how far into development the film is, as well as discussing how it will explore the Father/Son relationship that will be explored between Wolverine and Professor X.
“I’ll be really honest with you, the actual script in its full form we’re up to about Page 60. Obviously there’s a treatment, so it’s not fully done yet, we’re not fully there. Patrick does figure in it that’s for sure. I think it’s a really important relationship but I want to see signs of that quasi-father/son sort of relationship that has not been seen before, and sides of particularly Professor X that have not been seen before. So we have some really, really cool ideas.”
The untitled Wolverine sequel is set for release on March 2nd, 2017 and will reunite X-Men co-stars Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart, while The Wolverine director James Mangold return for directing duties.
