‘The Wolverine’ Director Tweets An Update About ‘Wolverine 3’

James Mangold — director of The Wolverine as well as 3:10 to Yuma — tweeted an update on Wolverine 3, which should be called Wolverine 2, and we’ll all just agree there wasn’t a first one. Anyhoo, Mangold told a fan that the SECOND film starts shooting early next year:

We already know that Hugh Jackman is signed on, and the release date is March 3, 2017. We don’t know yet if Patrick Stewart is on board. Last month, he said he’s been in discussions about a Wolverine movie in which his Professor X and Wolverine would team up. Yes, we would watch that. Especially because Jackman’s recently renewed his excitement for playing Wolverine “until he dies,” thanks to a viewing of Birdman. We know somebody else who wants Hugh Jackman to keep being Wolverine…
