This proposed follow-up to the massively successful origin story will closely follow the fan favorite story arc from Frank Miller and Chris Claremont, which finds everyone's favorite mutant heading East, where he learns Eastern philosophy and a new set of fighting skills. Jackman stated, "Japan is where we're heading. We're starting to work on it now. We're in the first steps of developing that story." About the Miller and Claremont story arc, Hugh said, "I think the fans love that saga. It's my favorite saga of the Wolverine stories. That's a movie I've longed to make from the beginning, so that's where we're heading."
