When the Wolverine comes out at Comic Con and says that he only has three words, and those words are Old Man Logan then you better listen. Even though there has never been any official announcement, you have to take what was said a little seriously. The Wolverine movies are suppose to be hand in hand with the X-Men movies so now that everything from the original movies have been fixed the future of Wolverine is unknown and Old Man Logan could very well be a possibility.
Recently IGN sat down with the writer of the comic Old Man Logan Mark Millar. During the interview the topic of the next Wolverine movie came up and Mark had this to say
Obviously I know what the final Wolverine movie is going to be, so I can’t say, but I can just say what Hugh Jackman said. Hugh Jackman walked out on stage at Comic-Con a few months back and he said, ‘I’ve got three words for you: Old Man Logan.’ and everyone went crazy and everything.
So he didn’t deny it, but he also didn’t come out and say it so there must be some truth behind what was said. Do you think that someone went to Hugh Jackman and said to tell the audience Old Man Logan for no reason?
Another recent story came out about Hugh Jackman saying that he won’t begin the third Wolverine movie until the script is perfect and gave some interesting facts
I’ll be really honest with you, the actual script in its full form we’re up to about Page 60. Obviously there’s a treatment, so it’s not fully done yet, we’re not fully there. Patrick does figure in it that’s for sure. I think it’s a really important relationship but I want to see signs of that quasi-father/son sort of relationship that has not been seen before, and sides of particularly Professor X that have not been seen before. So we have some really, really cool ideas.
So in Old Man Logan there isn’t any appearance from Professor X, so I really have no idea whats going on now. I’m still on the Old Man Logan train, but they may be changing up the story a little bit like they did with Day of Future Past. This may also be because the deal they struck with Marvel won’t allow the Hulk be a part of that story line.
