The world said goodbye to Wolverine this year, but don't for a second think you won't be seeing someone slashing their claws through heads for the foreseeable future, as long as FOX has their way. Logan director James Mangold is already working on a script for a spinoff, featuring Dafne Keen as Laura Kinney aka X-23. The director claims the success of Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman will lead the way to a solo X-23 movie.

"Patty's success with that film only solidifies more for studios that there's less to fear with a female protagonist," says Mangold. "The more that keeps getting hit home, that ends up giving me more space turning around and going, 'Well, here we are with a female protagonist. That's incredible. And what are we going to do with her?' And that's where we are with that [the Laura script] right now, dreaming."

Hugh Jackman won't be a producer on that film either.

"No, I won't be a producer on a Laura sequel," he says. "But I will be lining up on the Thursday night at 10 p.m. to watch it though. She is just phenomenal."

He's also ready for a new Wolverine.

"I know someone will. I hope it will be recast," he says.
