And we don’t mean in the “adolescent boy with a nudie magazine” way.
According to /Film (and more specifically, an interview with MTV), a sequel to this weekend’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine is already in the pipeline. This time, he’s heading to Japan to duke it out with some samarai(s?).
According to Jackman, the Japan storyline is intriguing because his “anarchic character, the outsider, being in this world — I can see it aesthetically, too — full of honor and tradition and customs and someone who’s really anti-all of that, and trying to negotiate his way.” Plus he’ll get to put on those blue jeans again. (Excuse me while I go turn Japanese thinking about that).
(Was that awkward for you?)
Slumdog Millionaire‘s screenwriter Simon Beaufoy was allegedly approached by Jackman to pen the follow-up to today’s release, but no one has been confirmed to write or direct. We know, based on Wolverine’s ending that some other X-Men releases could be coming out down the line as well – maybe even that Magneto origins film that’s been rumored so many times before.
