Hitfix while talking to Darren Aronofsky about his upcoming film ‘Black Swan’ which stars Natalie Portman managed to get a small update on the next Wolverine film which Aronofsky is attached to.
The film is officially called ‘The Wolverine’ with no numeric or sub-title attached. Aronofsky referred to the film in his interview with Hitfix as a one off, rather then a sequel, at least in the normal sense of the word.
I’m a little mixed on the approach he seems to be taking, given that ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ didn’t really deliver a great instalment, and had more than its fair share of problems it’s probably a good thing that any sequel distances itself somewhat and can be treated largely as an independent story irrespective of how the other films in the X series tie together.
On the other side however, it is part of an established franchise, there are four films so far with two more on the way, most of which have a strong connect so it’d be nice to see some sense of continuity maintained or at least as little contradiction as possible across all the films.
Without much in the way of details to go on at this stage it’s hard to say so we’ll wait and see how ‘The Wolverine’ shapes up over the coming months. In the meantime you’ll be able to see Aronofsky’s latest directorial efforts in ‘Black Swan’ which is released on Thursday 13th January.
