Hugh Jackman Says The Wolverine 3 Will Explore Xavier and Logan’s Relationship. Everyone should know by now that Patrick Stewart will reprise his role as Professor Xavier in The Wolverine 3, but he may have a bigger role than we originally thought, according to Hugh Jackman.
Collider got the chance to get some interesting scoop from the Aussie actor regarding his last run as the clawed mutant. It was already confirmed that Charles Xavier would fit into the plot of James Mangold’s follow-up to The Wolverine, but Hugh Jackman states that the film would explore the father/son like relationship between the two friends and witness a very different Xavier.
I’ll be really honest with you, the actual script in its full form we’re up to about Page 60. Obviously there’s a treatment, so it’s not fully done yet, we’re not fully there. Patrick does figure in it that’s for sure. I think it’s a really important relationship but I want to see signs of that quasi-father/son sort of relationship that has not been seen before, and sides of particularly Professor X that have not been seen before. So we have some really, really cool ideas.
So it’s safe to say that the script is coming along well, but we won’t know more until production starts. Jackman seems to want a script that would give Logan a proper send-off. What do you guys think? Wolverine 3 is scheduled to release in theaters March 3, 2017.
