Good start with McQuarrie writing 🙂 Wolvie, Gambit and Rogue are my faves…Cannot wait for Deadpool...

MTVSplash!:

When Hugh Jackman told MTV News that some exciting people were attached to the “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” sequel, we didn’t expect to find out about any of them this quickly—but some big “Wolverine 2” news has hit the wire!

…In a repeat of their “Wolverine” pairing, Jackman will produce the sequel alongside Lauren Shuler Donner. No stranger to the X-Men universe, McQuarrie was one of several uncredited screenwriters on the 2000 “X-Men” film, which he worked on alongside his frequent collaborator, director Bryan Singer. While McQuarrie’s attachment is certainly interesting on its own, what it could mean about a potential return to the franchise for Singer is also worth contemplating….

Will Bryan Singer be back as well?

…Back in May, the director told MTV News he “would love to return to that universe,” making a decision to rejoin Fox’s X-Men franchise that much more likely—especially with so many uncertainties surrounding a potential sequel to his most recent comic book movie, “Superman Returns.”…

…trades are abuzz with news that Hugh Jackman will return (and produce) for a second movie about comic-book character Wolverine….

The film ended with one of two teasers, depending on your theater: One showed Deadpool’s survival, and the other followed Wolvie to Japan, echoing a famous storyline in the comic books from the 1980s.

The second “Wolverine” movie would follow that plot, with the Marvel Comics superhero learning the code of the samurai. Chris McQuarrie, who wrote the first “X-Men” movie, has been tapped to write this one as well…
