Godspeed to Aronofsky, he's gonna need it if Fox is still in the picture.

it's a shame that NOW they want to think outside the box when it comes to a Wolverine movie ( which is implying that it will be darker? ).

it's a shame because it feels like we are at, or near, the end of the Jackman Wolverine portrayal. This is going to be Jackman's 5th outing as the character ( with the character growing a bit soft and stale in the last few outings ). Realistically, Jackman probably doesn't have that much time left to play the character.

IMO, this news of the new director, creative team, and direction would be more welcomed if this were a reboot done years down the road, in an effort to reintroduce the character of Wolverine with a new ( and shorter....lol ) actor in a darker, grittier story............

Even with this news..........I still can't find myself excited about this film.........

Fox is probably the most difficult studio to work with but I think that the right director can make a good genre film, even within their system.

Bryan Singer did it twice with X-Men and he's very uncompromising when it comes to his films, but somehow he was able to get his vision on screen and produce two critically acclaimed X-Men films.

You just need a filmmaker with a strong enough personality and one who won't back down to studio pressure.

It's too little too late for me also. Anyway, I just can't see Fox allowing a movie that I will like get made.

I just wish Aronofsky GETS the character right and doesn't listen to Fox or Jackman...

And about Jackman's "darker" comments; he said similar things about the first Wolverine movie, and instead we got a McDonald's flick....

Looking at both The Fountain and The Wrestler, Aronofsky definitely understands a character like Wolverine. The struggle and conflict of the warrior, as it were. And if they're going with Logan's adventures in Japan, and falling in love with Mariko, Aronofsky's as good a director as any. He's also very versatile in his visual sensibilities. And if nothing else, we can only hope he doesn't have a scene of needless CGI, with Wolverine admiring his claws in a bathroom.

Couldn't agree more, and if Fox don't interference much we might actually get a good movie.

Great news!

I wonder how much of the established characters/storylines from the previous movie will be carried over to this sequel? I for one would love to see Liev Schreiber return as a more feral looking Creed.

There doesn't even seem to be a continuity to the X-Men films anymore.

"This is Wolverine. This is not Popeye. He’s kind of dark ,But, you know, this is a change of pace. Chris McQuarrie, who wrote The Usual Suspects, has written the script, so that’ll give you a good clue. [Aronofsky’s] going to make it fantastic. There’s going to be some meat on the bones. There will be something to think about as you leave the theater, for sure.”

Ok, if you say so Hugh.

I wish they got him for Wolverine 1. It would have been interesting to see what he would have done with it. But then again Fox's pattern now seems to be getting the right person for the job several films after it would have helped the franchise.

That's close to what I was thinking. I have a lot of faith in Daranofsky(sp?) but Jackman said the same kind of BS about the other movie and that was weak as ****. The escape scene from the Weapon X project didn't compare to the minute of footage in X2. Wolverine was such a girly man in that film too.

hmmm..........that's funny........cuz when I left the theater after seeing Origins..........I was thinking about something too.

Y'know what I was thinking about?

I was thinking about how tired I was of Jackman's Wolverine. How tired I was of the further wimipification of Wolverine. How tired I was of Fox trying to milk every last drop of the X-franchise. And how tired I was of the whole X-franchise started by Singer.

That's what I was thinking about..........

Well McQuarrie writing and Daronofsky directing is terrific news. But I don't doubt the studio will find some way to screw the pooch and make a very mediocre film. Let's just hope not.
