Wolverine to Japan

Usually the words, good news and Teen Choice awards don't go together, but just this once they do.

After accepting his award for Choice movie actor for Wolverine, Jackman gave some details on the sequel, "Japan is where we're heading, [and] we're starting to work on it now. We're in ... the first steps of developing that story." This is really exciting news, since fans were originally hoping that the Wolvie series would get to that story. Apparently he knows this as well, "I think the fans love that saga. It's my favorite saga of the Wolverine stories. That's a movie I've longed to make from the beginning, so that's where we're heading." Honestly, I really think it's everyone's favorite saga.

I remember when I first got into comics around 9, and my Dad had this huge fascination with "Weapon X". I never really got into it until later on. I still actually own some of the originals. When I saw WOLVERINE: ORIGINS, it was a letdown. Everything about it was goofy for the most part. It seemed a little rushed really, especially with the Deadpool plot.

The Japan story is the one told by Frank Miller and Chris Claremont, where Wolverine ventures to Japan to find his love, Mariko Yashida. Logan is a ronin, a samurai without a master. In the series while searching out his love, he battles with The Hand and Japanese underground crimelords. It's an amazing storyline if you haven't already read it, and deserves good onscreen treatment.

Even though I laughed through the majority of Origins, I am one to give a second chance and hope that they do this one right. Or I might just loose it.
