Earlier this week Hugh Jackman said that they were just starting to develop the story for Wolverine 2, and confirmed that they were heading to Japan. In the post I had a mini-rant about Wolverine’s love interests. In short, I think that we’ve seen enough of Wolverine in love (Jean Grey in X-Men 3, Silver Fox in X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and I just want to see him be his badass self without getting revenge over a lost love or crying because he has to stab one of them. He needs to be single. However, these latest quotes from Jackman suggest that not only will Wolverine have a love interest, he will have multiple:
“Parts of that story were pretty dark. I don’t know if it’s the darkest, but I’m going to go out on a limb right now and say I think it will be the sexiest,” Jackman told MTV News. “There’s some female companionship—and not just one—for Wolverine. … My wife might have an issue with it, but I think the fans will like it.”
Of course, with all this talk of what the “Wolverine” sequel will entail, there’s still the question of when we’re likely to see it hit theaters. While Jackman couldn’t offer any firm details, he did hint at a potential release in 2012.
“If you look at the history [of the X-Men movies], it’s been every three years—three years exactly,” he teased. “So that might give you a good hint.”
There’s nothing wrong with a “sexy” X-Men film, I mean we’ve already seen Halle Berry, Anna Paquin and Famke Janssen running around in leather suits. I’d be fine with subtle sexiness like that, however if it turns into MTV/Michael Bay/Brett Ratner/music video type-sexy then I’ll berserker rage on their faces.
