Director James Mangold Says Wolverine 3 Footage Coming Soon


Hugh Jackman's third and final Wolverine solo film, which is still untitled (rumored to be Weapon X) at this time and will also probably be the last X-Men film that Patrick Stewart appears in, wrapped principal photography last month, and director James Mangold is already hard at work in the editing room, cutting and piecing the film together.

Aside from Mister Sinister (a.k.a. Nathaniel Essex) and probably X-23 (a.k.a. Laura Kinney) appearing, much of the film still remains shrouded in secrecy; however, Mangold assured an excitd fan that the veil of secrecy will be lifted "very soon."

"Working on it every day in edit room, Vince. You'll hear and see things very soon," Mangold tweeted. "Glad you're pumped & I hope we surprise you."

When might "very soon" be? Best guess? In a few weeks. Why? Because the next big film Fox has coming out is Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, being released on September 30, so I imagine a teaser trailer could be attached to it.

The film stars Hugh Jackman (X-Men: Days of Future Past) as Logan/Wolverine and Patrick Stewart (Star Trek: The Next Generation) as Charles Xavier/Professor X. The cast also includes Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl), Richard E. Grant (Game of Thrones), Stephen Merchant (Movie 43), Eriq La Salle (ER), Elise Neal (Scream 2), and Elizabeth Rodriguez (Orange is the New Black).


The film is being directed by James Mangold (The Wolverine), based on a script by Michael Green (American Gods) and David James Kelly (Mind Mgmt).

Wolverine 3 is set for a March 3, 2017 release from 20th Century Fox.
