    WOLVERINE 2 IS NOT A DIRECT SEQUEL?


    The internet this morning has been buzzed with some of surprise revelation by Darren Aronofsky regarding the upcoming planned sequel to last year's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. In an exclusive interview with Hit Fix to promote his latest project Black Swan, director Aronofsky managed to nibble some key details about the Adamantium-powered superhero sequel.

    It appears that the sequel will not carry any numbers along with it. Is this something of a new trend? Lately, we were informed that the new Mission Impossible may not have the number 4 to carried in its title. Nevertheless, this is what Hit Fix mentioned about the title change:
    The film that he's directing is officially called "The Wolverine," and there won't be a number attached to it. In our interview, he referred to the movie as a "one-off," and he emphasized that the film isn't a sequel in any conventional sense.

    With that the new Wolverine movie is heading towards a standalone, as the perfect that many would prefer while may not have the typical sequel as its backbone that has little connection to the X-Men franchise.

    Twentieth Century Fox is seemingly working diligently to distance themselves from the poor conclusion to the X-Men trilogy in The Last Stand as well as the disappointing critical response to X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Not only that, the tone may be ambient enough to distinct itself from the ongoing Matthew Vaughn's prequel of X-Men: First Class movie.

    There won't be much surprise for the key plot since many have knew that the setting of the second movie will be in Japan. The screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie will focus on Logan in the midst of a romance with a Japanese woman who is married to another man. To win her hand, he must literally battle her samurai-filled family. It’s based on the Chris Claremeont/Frank Miller mini-series from 1982.

    The new Wolverine movie will start shooting next March in New York and Japan. Obviously, the movie may be well-prepared for 2012 release.
