It's not really a sequel to...anything. It's marketing speak to "set up" the movie for fans who weren't sure whether this was still a "prequel-period" film. Mangold only wanted to do the film if he wouldn't have to deal with timelines, inconsistencies, potentially conflicting characterizations, etc.

Setting The Wolverine in the present day, post-everything else, easily establishes that freedom.

CS/SHH!: Well in the first film...(Bale sees the guy asking the question is wearing a Superman T-shirt.)

Bale: Are you doing that on purpose? You woke up this morning and went "right." (laughing)
