At the San Diego Comic Con International, the Fox movies panel showcased X-Men series of films. Hugh Jackman was the first on the dais and clued the public on what would happen to Wolverine in the next installment. He revealed that the next movie may show an ageing wolverine coming to terms with a life full of a busload of problems.

The actor has played Wolverine in 7 movies yet and is slated to play the character in two more movies. At the San Diego Comic Con, he talked about the long story of playing Wolverine since the first X-Men film. He then decided to talk about the third movie in the wolverine series, which may end up being the last movie in which he would play Wolverine.

The movie will probably feature an older Wolverine. Hugh Jackman hinted that the story may be based on Mark Millar’s “Old man Logan” story line. He said, “I’ve got three words for you guys: Old Man Logan,” and told the audience that this will be his last time putting out claws. The story will take place in far future, probably even fifty years into the future, where the United States have been divided into super villains and the world is in a pretty bad state. Wolverine is purportedly the only remaining X Man and things have taken the turn for worse. I suppose the greatest surprise here is that Wolverine, who hasn’t aged much in four hundred years, has begun ageing now and has reached a mature age so quickly.

For those not in the know, Old Man Logan is a comic book story by Mark Millar, who coincidentally is involved as a chief consultant on all the Marvel movies at Fox, and artist Steve McNiven. It ran from 2008 to 2009 and was a big seller with the comic book crowd.
