Considering that Wolverine 3 is supposed to be the last appearance of Hugh Jackman as the Wolverine, one would expect FOX to pull out all the stops when it came to adding all the bells and whistles fans, and Jackman, would want. Everyone expects the storyline to be based on the Old Man Logan plot created by writer Mark Millar and artist Steve McNiven. Another rumor that is consistently popping up is that Patrick Stewart‘s Professor X will be making an appearance. Recently Stewart confirmed just that.
While promoting his new Starz show Blunt Talk Stewart talked with Collider who asked him about Wolverine 3:
There is a project in development. I understand that Professor Xavier will be making more than an appearance, however, and that intrigues me… And the idea of an old Wolverine – I’m really looking forward to Hugh Jackman getting old. You know, damn him. He looks so great!
There’s been a lot of time hopping in the X-Men franchise and it seems that trend will continue, unless Professor X is going to be really old in Wolverine 3. I’m glad he’ll take a much bigger role than just a cameo.
Where will we find Wolverine if they use the Old Man Logan plot?
No one knows what happened on the night the heroes fell. All we know is that they disappeared and evil triumphed and the bad guys have been calling the shots ever since. What happened to Wolverine is the biggest mystery of them all. Some say they hurt him like no one ever hurt before. Others say he just grew tired of all the fighting and retired to a simpler life. Either way he hasn’t raised his voice or popped his claws in fifty years. His old friends would barely recognize him now.
