According to Super Hero Hype, the Darren Aronofsky Wolverine movie will simply be called The Wolverine.  It will not be a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and will not feature the Russians invading Colorado.  Instead, it will be a one-off, stand along project featuring Logan involved in a forbidden romance with a Japanese woman.

The Wolverine isn’t the worst title I’ve ever heard, but maybe, just maybe, they should consider dropping The, and simply call it Wolverine.

  1. Wonder if they’ll have The Silver Samurai as Yokiro’s kin in this one. The Wolverine stories set in Japan were some of my favorites.

  2. Sooo… it’s Wolverine and Lady Deathstrike eh? And that promotional pose looks silly, yes. “Ok Hugh, now look like you’re running with your arms, and keep your feet planted. Yes! Like that!” lol

  3. Well, the whole Japan thing sounds good. That’s one of the few Wolverine stories that ever intrigued me, with him balancing his animal nature with a bushido code of honor, and the inner struggle that represents.

    Also, I can’t help but hear the title in Rodrigo’s “Stan Lee” voice. “Ish da Wolverine!”
