20th Century Fox scoops up domain names for possible Wolverine 3 titles

06.13.2016

Hugh Jackman Wolverine

Our first look from the set of the WOLVERINE 3 brought us a very beard-y Hugh Jackman in what looks to be a kind of riff on Mark Millar's Old Man Logan storyline. As you can imagine, that wouldn't exactly make for the most exciting of titles, so 20th Century Fox has picked up a few domain names that might suggest the direction they're headed. The first is www.thedeathoflogan.com, with the second being www.wolverineweaponx.com. Now, it's not unusual for several domains to be picked up before a film comes out, so it's entirely possible that neither of these will make up the title for Jackman's last hurrah, but the latter certainly seems likely. As an added bonus you can also see some new pictures of Patrick Stewart on-set with Hugh Jackman, looking equally beard-y!

Director James Mangold did a hell of a job with 2/3 of THE WOLVERINE, so I'm hoping he has a really great story on his hands for what's being touted as Jackman's last portrayal of the character. I mean, it couldn't be any worse than ORIGINS, right? In any case, it's great to see Jackman back in the role he was born to play. Just in case you weren't quite sure how ripped Weapon X will be in this film, Jackman was also goodly enough to throw up the following pic on his Twitter account. Time to go berserker, baby!

The as of now UNTITLED WOLVERINE SEQUEL is scheduled to hit theaters on March 3, 2017.

Since this film was announced to be Jackman's last I've been referring to it as 'Death of Wolverine'.
I still think that's what it'll end up being called.

I'm going to get insanely down-voted for this, but I really liked Origins, and find it to be one of two X-men movies that are worth watching. First Class being the other. I am honestly curious as to why people crap on Origins so much. From what I see, it is mostly tied to the handling of Deadpool's character. While I think what they did with him was crappy, it did not ruin the whole movie for me. I wasn't that big of a fan of the character to begin with. It was a well-shot, action packed

It was a well-shot, action packed Wolverine movie, in my opinion. It is much better than The Wolverine by a landslide! (again...in my opinion) So, why all the hate? Just because of Deadpool's character?? In curious.

So much wrong with Origins. Yes, being the first was the handling of Deadpool. Throwing Gambit in there was also an insult to the character and didn't make any sense to the general plot, simply to the fact they wanted to slip him in there.

In my mind, I wanted the first twenty minutes like the graphic Wolverine Origins novel. Where it shows Logan discovering his animalistic mutant abilities. Why he's drawn to nature, why he feels at home with a pack of wolves and stalking their pray.

The scene of him in the bathroom with the obvious cgi claws was hard to watch and the adamantium bullet to the head so he forgets his memories was a sloppy (new way), to steer away from how it actually went in the comic books.

The only highlights in my mind that should have stayed in the script from a re-write....The war scenes were decent, Liev was excellent as Sabertooth and having Logan all recluse like, as a logger in Canada.

Boy I completely disagree with you and I could go into detail - I imagine Leadhand83 nails it, but I do respect your opinion, your explanation of it, and lack of "all y'all motherfuckers are stupid who don't like origins!!!!."



But it is pretty bad. Deadpool actually has very little to do with the problems for me, but I guess he could be a metaphor for all of them.

ahhh the adamantium bullet. yeah i forgot all of that. i remember reading evert's review of the movie - he panned it. he didn't seem familiar with the character and panned the character and I emailed him saying that Wolverine is actually a great character, a great antihero, the movie just missed the mark.

but do you guys remember the comic con trailer that was leaked? it scares me still to this day because of how awesome it was.

I can agree that the script/film was sloppy in several places...especially with the bullet issue, shoehorned-in Gambit (which I didn't mind...it was a decent fight scene and a fun cameo) and horrible cgi claws. However, I am not one who will completely destroy a film if it differentiates from the source comics/characters, unless that film is completely horrible! I didn't find Origins horrible at all. Sloppy? ...yes...cheesy? ...in parts....but as a whole, it was an entertaining time for me.

Sloppy? ...yes...cheesy? ...in parts....but as a whole, it was an entertaining time for me. Liev was awesome for sure, and I liked the look/feel of the movie and the way it was shot/colored. Also, the action scenes were done well, even if the laws of physics were thrown out the window! It is one I re-watch occasionally, compared to most of the X-Men films, and one of the few times they seemed to get the character of Wolverine right, in terms of mood/style. Before Origins came out, I felt the X-men movies made him into a complete wuss! This film made him more of the character I grew up reading in the comics.
It is not a superb film by any standard...it's just not the complete train-wreck most reviewers made it out to be. At least not in my opinion!

I don't think I ever saw the Comic Con trailer...will have to look it up!

Well since you asked. I have been a fan of Wolverine for the last 30+ years. I know him better then any other character and have read just about every Wolverine comic book printed up until around 2005. The real Weapon X story is amazing and should have been told exactly as it was portrayed in the comics. That horrific excuse of a movie is an insult to any self respecting Wolverine fan. They literally got NOTHING right from his back story in terms of key characters who were involved and why he

They literally got NOTHING right from his back story in terms of key characters who were involved and why he was there. Even from a technical aspect it sucked. They could have have gotten everything right about his story and it still would have been a horrible movie. The pacing was weird, there was not special about the effects and the fight scenes were utter shit. I could go on and on but I don't have 8 hours to kill.

"Director James Mangold did a hell of a job with 2/3 of THE WOLVERINE"
That sums things up pretty perfectly.

I don't doubt that this film will have echoes of Old Man Logan, but I think it'll be a far-less faithful adaptation than Days of Future Past was. That story line features a lot of characters that Marvel holds the rights to and, while they could just be replaced with other X-men related characters pretty easily (i.e. replace Hulk with a reality controlling mutant like Jamie Braddock

I think that we're instead likely to get something along the lines of what Marvel did with Winter Soldier, include the broad strokes of the iconic story but actually base most of the plot on a different, likely lesser-known run (in that case Nick Fury vs. SHIELD).

They could easily replace Hulk with Sabertooth and that would help Logan come full circle with his brother. Also a perfect send off. But I doubt it'll happen.

What @bealzf basically said....

If you go to the first source link, you'll see a photo of a little girl, she could be potentially Wolverines clone X-23, which was created by Mr. Sinister.

Also, I've heard The Reavers, will be the main villains.

what link is that? i need to check it out. I mean, it's just the smartest business move. Create a female wolverine clone, they can kinda battle in this movie, but the important thing for the franchise, is that she becomes the next wolverine. you get a star like an emily blunt, you don't have to recast Hugh Jackman and have all those problems, you get a different character with her being a clone, but laura still has all the badass wolverine stuff. you aren't losing the wolverine brand, you

oh just jared. yeah she's all over the place. i'm surprised the article hasn't pointed that out. at the least, she clearly looks like more than an extra or someone he saves for a scene.

I know right, it could totally work?!
I'm just reaching here, but I think they may be going that route with Mr.Sinister/Weapon X blood/X-23.

I haven't seen Apocalypse yet. But I heard about the end credits. And I don't even remember what all Sinister does. Is he the comic creation of Laura? It's really not a reach though, the only thing that's kinda far fetched is Apocalypse was in the 80's, Sinister steals the blood and it takes him....at least 30 years to grow an 8 year old? if that's the girl? but that type of stuff doesn't bother me. From what I've read, this film is going to put an end to Jackman's Wolverine, but Fox

it's almost like the dark knight returns - it's great, and the animated film is the best batman film i've ever seen. but to have that movie starring ben affleck, it's too confusing for people not familiar with the material.

I like how he has bloody knuckles from his laws. But how far into the future is this? Seems like Professor X has been alive centuries. Doesn't look too much like Old Man Logan. Then again there's no way they could've license it from Marvel.

i'm not complaining but those pictures don't seem very post-apocalyptic. there will probably be some shout outs to fans of old man logan, but i don't think they will make a movie that's basically a stand alone, one shot universe. they will make something they can build up to in the timeline before or after, and i'm guessing it'll have X-23. i think it'd be a mistake on the franchise not to.

I was going to write something similar, if they are doing the Old Man Logan story, they're definitely abandoning the post-apocalyptic world of it and doing their own thing. But that's understandable since there is just no way for them to do it properly without all of the Marvel licenses.

i don't think it has to do with the licensing so much. you could follow the structure of the comic. hulk would clearly be sabertooth so that things would be full circle. and magneto would be president. maybe have a twist where we think somebody else like trash or someone is president and then we find out it's magneto. you could almost cut out the other parts, or add juggernaut and dr doom, who haven't existed in this timeline? but people are confused and complaining already about the X

Wolverine is now...old man logan." It's just too odd to be apart of a universe. they would almost need to recast wolverine specifically and only for this movie. or just do a badass animated movie. i'm not saying one is better than the other or anything, i'm purely saying that this is a huge film for FOX, and they will do everything they can to make sequels/prequels to it, and I would do too. There's a HUUUUUGE door for x-23 right now and It'd be silly to miss out on it. And it's not as forced as just a female recasting of a male lead. Doing Old Man Logan is too secluded from the universe.

Maybe he can still be tricked by some villain to kill some heroes or something. I always liked that, though was his sense of smell also tricked?
