After the success of the opening weekend for X-Men Origins: Wolverine a sequel was immediately green lit. We haven’t heard much since but recently director Darren Aronofsky was added and on November 14 the title was official announced.
And the title is …….The Wolverine
Best known for small budget psychological thrillers, the addition of Darren Aronofsky to the Wolverine franchise was initially a curious one. In a recent interview Aronofsky revealed that the second Wolverine film is not a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but will instead be a one-off story.
The rumoured story of the screenplay, written by Christopher McQuarrie (The Way of the Gun, Valkyrie and Usual Suspects), will feature Logan battling a samurai-filled family to win the hand of a Japanese woman who is married to another man. It’s based on the Chris Claremeont/Frank Miller mini-series from 1982. This most likely means we get to see the classic battle between Wolverine and the Silver Samurai
