‘Logan’ Director James Mangold on Laura Spinoff; Hugh Jackman On Wolverine Being Recast

Speaking with THR, Logan director James Mangold had a few things to say about a Laura-spinoff (the feisty mini-Wolverine cloned from Logan’s DNA), along with a statement from Hugh Jackman himself on someone picking up the mantle of the adamantium-clawed X-Man.

Mangold has said “We’re just working on a script,” and spoke about having a female-centric superhero film post-Wonder Woman:

Patty’s [Jenkins, Wonder Woman director] success with that film only solidifies more for studios that there’s less to fear with a female protagonist. The more that keeps getting hit home, that ends up giving me more space turning around and going, ‘Well, here we are with a female protagonist. That’s incredible. And what are we going to do with her?’ And that’s where we are with that right now, dreaming.
Hugh Jackman states he’s retired from going berserker mode as the animalistic Wolverine, saying he won’t be involved in any capacity on any future endeavors.
No, I won’t be a producer on a Laura sequel. But I will be lining up on the Thursday night at 10 p.m. to watch it though. She is just phenomenal.
And then about someone else donning the trademark claws and rogue attitude:
I know someone will. I hope it will be recast.
There’s no doubt that Wolverine will indeed be recast, it’s just a matter of when and who. So — who do YOU want to see pick up the mantle? Let us know in the comments below!
