Wolverine News: The Sequel is Confirmed!

With such a tremendous opening for ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’, Variety has confirmed what we were all hoping.

There will be a ‘Wolverine’ sequel and it will take place in Japan.

Variety’s phrasing is a little odd, “Actor to star in ‘Wolverine’ sequel, ‘Carousel’.”

Or as Groucho Marx would say, why they’re calling the sequel ‘Carousel’ I’ll never know.

Ahem.

Monday’s box office was released today as well, pushing the ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ total to $90.5 million, tying it with ‘Madea Goes to Jail’ and ‘Space Cowboys’ as the #479th domestic grossing film of all time, having clawed past ‘Trading Places’, ‘Legally Blonde 2’ and ‘Waterworld’.

And with official international box office in at $73.1 million, ‘Wolverine’ has now amassed $163.6 million worldwide, clocking in as the #463rd grossing film of all time worldwide. That ties ‘Wolverine’ with ‘The Forty-Year-Old Virgin’ and just ahead of ‘The Sound of Music’, ‘Dick Tracy’ and ‘The Spiderwick Chronicles’.

  1. I love all the good news regarding the movie. It really does life my spirits as a Wolverine fan.

    Thanks for the update buddy.

  2. I am grasping for any good news, and am pleased to see that a sequel has been confirmed. Now, I just hope a completely different creative team is amassed for the next Wolverine movie and that that project will be a success without reservations.

  3. Agreed, Pamela! A new creative team would be beneficial. I believe the script was the limiting factor for the first film. I hate to always go back to Dark Knight (it’s either the current comic film measuring stick or it should be), but its flawless script set the foundation for a solid movie. Look for holes in that script… I’ll be shocked if you find one! That’s what Wolverine needed a compelling and intelligent script. DiG, you should call Marvel, they need you!

  4. Any chance we could see the director of Dark Knight work on the Wolverine sequel ? =(
