Wolverine 2

Post by God Of The Storm on Tue Mar 09, 2010 6:11 pm


Slow news day today, so there are a couple of small news items bubbling up. One is that the script for Wolverine 2 has been handed in, and a January 2011 start date decided for the sequel to Hugh Jackman’s last mutant outing.

Roger Friedman reports that Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Valkyrie) has turned in a script, and that it is, according to Friedman, “a little different than we originally thought.”

The basics are what we expected to hear: McQuarrie’s draft is loosely based on the early ’80s mini-series by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller that helped establish Wolverine as one of Marvel’s major characters.

So what’s different in McQuarrie’s draft? Friedman says he’s been told the film features “a love story featuring a Japanese actress.”

That suggests that the primary female character is switched from being Mariko Yashida, the daughter of Lord Shingen Harada. In the limited series, Mariko was forced into marriage with an abusive man, which Wolverine attempted to help her escape. Shingen drugs Wolverine and challenges him to a duel, who defeats him. Also involved is a female assassin named Yukio, who later became part of the extended X-Men universe.

The female lead could still be the daughter of a warlord, or married to an abusive man. Maybe she’s married to an abusive warlord! More than anything else, I expect the script to make the female lead a more active presence than we saw in the mini-series.

Meanwhile, we still don’t know who’ll direct. Gavin Hood, the man behind X-Men Origins: Wolverine, has said he is not attached, and Friedman mentions that Fox has not yet settled on a director.

Furthermore, with January being ten long months away this script could very easily undergo rewrites. In fact, I would expect at least a couple of minor rewrites done in the next couple months, and if a director with a particularly strong sensibility is hired there could be significant changes made.

I've hear that Jackman always wanted a Wolverine film in Japan. So Silver Samurai should be there.

I don't wanna be mean... but another Wolverine movie???
Geez there are so many characters out there that could have an Origins movie, but they don't...
I like Wolverine a lot, but I hate the fact that always he is the one who gets to be in the spotlight! Geez...
For example, why not make a Storm Origins? Very Happy Laughing

Thank you very much Weather God Smile
Damn I soo much wish they make a Storm origins... her life - in my opinion - is much more interesting than Wolverine's... and her powers to.
And if they would stick to the original Storm story they would make a huge succesfully movie..
But then again, Storm is put apart...

I always thought that Storm would make an awesome movie, if done right. She has alot of history outside of the X-men, and she has a lot to be unlocked about her life. Others may not agree with me, but even if females superhero movies don't do well, I think a Storm movie has real potential.

Yeah in the first place they should involve Claremont! Because without Claremont, Storm would look, like The Weather God said, another female superhero movie...

Poor catwoman, thought it was a pretty cool concept but it was so different from the actual catwoman that the film was just a mess. I liked the movie though...

I thought it was a great film overall and was pretty damn cool to see the Storm cameo pic at the beginning. Yukio was my favorite.
