    Hugh Jackman is just addicted to X-Men seriously which isn't a bad thing at all. He has done great on every other X-Men movie he's been in.

    This is not surprising. I think Jackman will jump at the chance to appear in any X-Men film.

    I'm really tired of wolverine lately. He used to be my favorite character but I can't stand how is everywhere. I really wish they treat cyclops and Colossus with respect. plus I would still get rid of singer as a director writer whatever.

    @ROFLitschristian I agree with not making him the focus to a certain extent. Fassbender was awesome as Magneto so I would like to see more of him but the Days of Future Past storyline focused around Wolverine as he was one of the few left alive.

    Old news is good, but old. Glad to see's they're mixing the new and the old, but please, PLEASE, don't make him the central focus. That's going to be a breaking point for me.

    I do enjoy the X-Men films but so far, the films only focus's on one character...and I want that to end.
    X-Men is a team and needs to be treated like one.

    Non of the X-Men films has let Logan to be the best at what he does. Why should this be any different? I'll tell you why, it's because he so much darker than any of them but no, the studio reps what him to be as soft as a bunny.
    I'm hoping The Wolverine would frighten them. You can't turn a killer into a soft bunny unless the bunny has deadly claws and turn its victims into road kill.

    They have butchered the character that I love too much.
    I want Logan to be a lone, and have him kill targets.

    the true Logan doesn't give a s--- because he's the best at what he does when he's a lone.

    @Lynchian I think it's a good thing. Something needed to happen with the xmen films. The 3rd movie was t very good. This gives them a fresh start in a sense

    I have a hunch that this will become X-Men 4 initially.

    A name tweak and it would make, not much of a difference.
