The Wolverine to be 'Stand Alone' Movie Possibly to Integrate Character Back into X-Men: Days of Future Past
|Fox / Marvel|
At the beginning of this month, 20th Century Fox confirmed the X-Men Origins: First Class sequel will be titled X-Men: Days of Future Past and will attempt to use the time-traveling story line from the comics in order to create a more cohesive cinematic universe for the mutants. Producer Bryan Singer also said his first two X-Men films will be integrated (somewhat) into this as well.
This creates an interesting set of thoughts about Fox's plan and they obviously want to create a movie universe similar to what Marvel Studios has done with The Avengers and all their solo movies. Now in order to do this, Singer and director Matthew Vaughn have chosen to go a route similar to what director J.J. Abrams did with his Star Trek reboot by using time-travel to change the course of what has happened in past movies. This will help to create a whole new universe and the potential for new stories as well.
Smart Fox, very smart. Especially when you consider that Wolverine star, Hugh Jackman, has confirmed The Wolverine movie will be a stand-alone flick and not associated with the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie. Since The Wolverine is its own movie, this could be a telling sign Fox plans to rejoin Wolverine back into the X-Men big screen universe.
Of course the exact story from the comics will not be seen on the big screen but you can be sure several themes will be sourced for Jackman to potentially be back in the next X-Men sequel. Then there's the assumption he could be in the ensemble movies moving forward.
That last part is just a speculation by us here at The Daily SuperHero but why not bring Wolverine back into the fold with the new cast of the X-Men movie? And who doesn't want to see Jackman face-off against Michael Fassbender's version of Magneto too? Sounds like a no-brainer to us.
