Hugh Jackman's Wolverine Threequel To Shoot In 2016
The X-Man ain't going anywhere...
Hugh Jackman has made it clear that he won't be hanging up his adamantium claws any time soon, so it's no surprise to hear that Wolverine 3 director James Mangold has confirmed that dates for the shoot have been locked in.
He revealed the news via Twitter, when a fan asked when filming on the project was due to start. Mangold's response - "Early next year" - was short but very sweet. The as-yet untitled film is due to hit cinemas in March 2017.

But before going solo once more, Jackman is set to reprise the role of Logan in Bryan Singer's upcoming X-Men sequel, Apocalypse, which starts filming in Montreal this May.
And if what he told MTV last month is anything to go by, he could pop up in Ryan Reynolds' upcoming Deadpool movie, too.
"They are definitely enemies in the comics and they always spark off well together, so I'd be open to that idea," he explained.
The actor currently stars alongside Sigourney Weaver in Neil Blomkamp's sci-fi Chappie, which hits cinemas this Friday.
