Some disappointing news has arisen recently for those looking forward to the next Wolverine film with the likelihood that Darren Aronofsky will no longer direct the sequel currently known as ‘The Wolverine’. It had been previously reported that Aronofsky would focus on ‘The Wolverine’ following the completion of ‘Black Swan’, this news gave fans of the X-Men franchise great confidence that the Wolverine series was taking a turn for the better following the lacklustre start with ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’.
Aronofsky has been quoted saying that his increasing awareness regarding the length of time he’d be required to be abroad while working on the film, caused him to become uncomfortable about time away from his family, and that he’d made the decision to put them first and not follow through with this project.
So as Aronofsky no doubt considers what might be the next project that is the right choice to pursue, fans looking forward to the next Wolverine film will have to wait and see who the new director might be.
In the meantime, we have X-Men: First Class to look forward to over the next few months.
