So have you heard? You are right, if you have heard that there will be a Wolverine movie spin-off from the X-men movie franchise. Of course, Hugh Jackman will continue to play Logan also known as our favorite Wolverine. Many questions have been asked at Yahoo! Answers as to where there will be a 4th X-men movie? Based on sources, there will not be one at least for now! This will be a big disappointment for X-men fans including myself.

But you never know what will happen right? After all, X-men characters never really actually dies (at least most I guess).

When will the Wolverine Movie be out?

At the moment, Hugh Jackman has another commitment to a movie. And so we will not be seeing the Wolverine movie in the cinemas until at least year 2008.

Plot Summary:

As shown in the first 2 X-men movies, they briefly mentioned about Logan’s past. It is assumed in this movie that we will learn more about his secret history before the Weapon X project. For those who are not familiar with the Weapon X program, it is actually a government project contracted by the Canadian government. Captured mutants are mostly used in the experiment to enhance their super abilities and also mutate humans. The Weapon X project has produced familiar characters such as Wolverine, Deadpool, Sabretooth and so on.

In the movie, Wolverine seeks revenge for the death of his girlfriend against Sabretooth also known as Victor Creed before he went through the Weapon X program. So it is no surprise to see Sabretooth being cast as one of the main villains in this Wolverine movie. It is also said that William Stryker from the X-men 2 movie will also be cast as the other main villain, if you recall he was the one in charge of the Weapon X program.

Other News:

David Benioff has been hired to write the screenplay for the Wolverine movie. For those not familiar with his name, you may recognize his work in Troy where he also wrote the screenplay. He is also a big Wolverine fan since he was 9 years old. Brett Ratner who was the director for the X-men 3 movie is negotiating to take up the Wolverine movie, but it has not been decided yet.

Side Note:

Do expect changes from the plot summary above because there is still time to make changes along the way. Based on a Latino Review of script done by David Benioff, characters such as the Blob, Forearm, Silver Fox and more are also part of the Wolverine movie cast. Unfortunately, Latino Review was taken down after request from 20th Century Fox. There is also news about a possible Magneto movie coming up too!
