How long will Jackman continue on as Wolverine? From the sound of it, he doens't plan on stopping anytime soon, saying he, as the studio, is taking a wait-and-see approach to each project. Many have speculated he might give up the role soon, not having a current contract, but Jackman says since his first two picture deal ended he's been working film to film. So far he says there is not even a script for the next Wolverine film, but has already spoken with Jim Mangold about Wolverine's future.
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.
I don’t want to dive into another one until we have a compelling reason to do another one. 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, for one, hope to see Jackman continue on another movie or two. Despite his age (and height), he carries the role well and is definitely Wolverine in the minds of most movie-going fans.
So what direction would you like to see Wolverine go in his next solo effort? Any classic stories you would like to see them take on?
