Wait Wolverine 2 is a sequel to X-Men 3 story now? So weird. Figured it would've been Wolverine after his first crappy movie hiding out in Japan and leading up to the first X-Men movie.
It takes place after X3. Mangold confirmed that recently in an interview. I think they're just moving away from the spinoff movie altogether.
