Last year it was revealed that Hugh Jackman is set to unsheathe his adamantium claws one final time in 2017 as he reprises the role of Logan for the as-yet-untitled Wolverine 3, which will reteam him with The Wolverine director James Mangold.
Speaking to Collider to promote his new film Eddie the Eagle, Jackman has spoken about his last X-Men outing, revealing that the script is all but complete, but he’s wanting to have it perfected before they push ahead into production.
“We have a script. A full script. To tell you, two days ago I got that the full finished—well, it’s not finished, but we’re getting super close—as you can see by the rate of my facial hair. That might give you a good clue that perhaps…yeah, it’s sooner rather than later. I don’t have a firm date yet. My thing and I’ve told you and I’ve told everyone, it’s my last one, for me I want it to be perfect, so the moment I know it’s perfect, bang, we’ll go.”
Wolverine 3 is slated for release on March 3rd 2017, and is heavily rumoured to take inspiration from the Old Man Logan storyline.
