I would. Actually, another lose-adaptation of a Japan-centric story could be cool. Chris Claremont's Kitty Pryde and Wolverine could be neat.

Bring Ellen Page back for juicier role with Jackman as Logan. Reworking the story to include Yukio and Mariko.

The Wolverine is already at a worldwide of 140 million on a 120 million budget, so not at all impossible.

Also, are we to believe that Fox is turning down merchandise revenue "for the children"? in any case, we'll find out the truth next summer when DOFP opens. If there are shelves of Rocket plush toys and no DOFP t-shirts, we'll know who is in control of X-Men tie-in merchandise.
Nothing automatically changed with the Disney merger with Marvel regarding Fox's film rights and merchandising. Hasbro's license with Fox runs through 2017. Sony's deal regarding merchandise was an independent deal they struck with Marvel/Disney.

I don't understand the confusion. Fox purposefully hasn't come out with kid-friendly merchandise for either First Class or The Wolverine. That might change with DOFP but it's their call, not Marvel's. They have the contract with Hasbro regarding toy tie-ins for their movies, just like they are the ones responsible for licensing their film properties with other companies.

I'd much rather see Yukio in an X-Men film. Imagine her in an x-costume, sure it might be treading on Psylocke's territory, but I'd accept it.

I REALLY hope they keep this as the bluray cover.
Yeah me too, kind of gives it a stand alone feel against the other X-Men film covers aswell. It's such a good pic, wouldn't mind it on a T-Shirt.

keep it small, but im all for it. Especially if they can create a great story around Sunfire, and maybe Psylocke. Maybe the villain is Omega Red? or hell bring back Sabretooth gosh dangit!

I'm sort of torn on this.

On hand I like this standalone story it work so well on its own, Wolverine finding his purpose again and wanting to get back in the fight for DoFP, the setting of Japan is so perfect to.

But then more Wolvie and more Yukio.............

The early Wolvie tales, he's always had some kind of a sidekick...

Jubilee, Kitty Pryde..And there was also one very memorable Wolverine story where he sorta team up with that kid from power pack.Forgot her name.One of my fav Wolvie story ever.

Yeah the two of them work together so well, be interesting to see if a sequel is a possability after its cinematic run.

I guess demand will dictate if it happens. I wouldnt be against it thats for sure, especially if we got a proper SS in the film in some way.

yeah, i think it needs a sequel... we need to know what happened to Yukio, and why she's still not following Wolvie around.

I dont read much of the current stuff nowadays, tend to stick to the movies, but I think he did go through several changes, I think he died but his son took his place or something like that, basically passed down another generation.

Quesda regime just got too much for me.The whole white Phoenix some go on and on about I know nothing about.That must have came after i quit buying marvel comics or from new X-Men after I quit buying them.

I apologize for my confusion. My knowledge of the film industry ended when I quit my theater manager job after college. But I do have experience reading financial statements - in a prior job I proofread and edgarized statements for real estate LLCs before filing. And Its highly unlikely Marvel would state that they had control over their merchandising agreements if this wasnt the case.

I read your linked articles - thank you - and there was nothing in them that refers to FOX having a say in regards to licensed merchandise. And while I appreciate FOX wanting to limit childrens exposure to more adult themed product, it makes no sense to me that they would willingly abandon a licensing strategy that had proved so successful for the first four X-Men films.

XM:FC, in my opinion, was no more "mature" than the films in the original trilogy, and not that different in maturity level than the two Marvel Studios films released that summer. But while Thor and Cap merchandise was, for the first time, prominently displayed in stores, I couldn't find an XM:FC t-shirt.

As I stated, the proof will come next summer. If merchandise is not sparse or nonexistent for a film FOX is positioning as an Avengers style blockbuster, I will admit my error.

yeah...Not a fan of the current state of marvel creative decisions. Still bummed that i can't read Wolverine comics now because i just don't enjoy the character anymore because some of the creative decision made for that character.,

I just don't feel like reading: 'The further adventures of headmaster Logan'...if you know what i mean

Remender, Bendis, Brian Wood and Jason Aaron are all fantastic writers imo. This is the best X-men has been in awhile. I recommend checking out alot of the curren runs. Something in there for everyone.

Uncanny X-Men (Cyclops team), All New X-Men (Original 5 focused), X-Men (all female X-Men), Wolverine and The X-Men(Wolverine lead) and Remenders Uncanny X-Force (best X book you will read) are all solid.

I love jason Aaron run..well, up until Wolvie goes to hell arc, after that, it got really weird with dragons and what have you, that's when i say eff it and quit...after collecting faithfully ever since his very first mini. Or maybe i was just still pissed off because the whole headmaster thing and that was the last drop.

i'm reading SOME of the new Marvel stuff on and off...i'm meaning to get that all female x-team book...i hope it's good. Read the Bendis new X men stuff...and it was surprisingly good ..and i quit reading X-force after the first team incarnation ( with X-23, Warpath etc) What's Brian wood's book? i liked his Northlanders series...

I think the last 'big storyline/crossovers' from Marvel that i enjoyed was the Hope Saga...the second coming crossover was one of the best x-men story IMO
