James Mangold Confirms He’ll Direct The Wolverine Sequel After X-Men: Apocalypse

Wolverine Origins

You just never know when a filmmaker might be in a sharing mood. A fan on Twitter decided to ask James Mangold for an update on the next Wolverine movie, which we already know he’s committed to (though Hugh Jackman, apparently less so, at least right now).

Mangold obliged, and it looks like we’ll have The Wolverine 2 as a potential follow-up to 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse.

Does he mean after it’s finished shooting? After it releases? The timeline still isn’t entirely locked down, and who knows what other comic book movies Fox will slot between one and the other, but as of right now, it looks like we may be getting another Wolverine movie by 2017 or 2018. You gotta think Jackman will just be so over it by then.
