Hugh Jackman’s Final Wolverine Film Could Be a Sequel to Days of Future Past

During a recent interview for his new show Blunt Talk, Patrick Stewart revealed that he’s in talks to reprise his role as Professor X in the forthcoming Wolverine 3, also known as Hugh Jackman’s final outing with him portraying Wolverine, also known as possibly an adaptation of the “Old Man Logan” comics storyline from 2008.

Stewart described the role as more than just a cameo, and since 2014’s X-Men Days of Future Past essentially rewrote the X-Men movie timeline, the inclusion of Stewart’s Professor X seemingly opens the door for other members of the “old class” to appear, as well, from Famke Janssen’s Jean Grey to Anna Paquin’s Rogue and onwards. Stewart talks about Jackman playing an older Wolverine in the forthcoming film, which means that we may actually see what happens after those final, rosy, scenes in Days of Future Past. The X-Men are alive and happy and mutantkind and humanity seem at peace with each other. Is there much use for a warrior like Logan in that kind of environment? Perhaps not. And perhaps that’s the point.

Showcasing a post-X-Men generation of mutantkind could also allow for a lot of fun cameos from a number of different X-Men student bodies: Beak, the Stepford Cuckoos, Cannonball and his sister Husk, Chamber, Skin, Glob Herman, Pixie, maybe even Doop. Wolverine 3 could establish a very weird, very interesting, mutantkind. And hey, there is a New Mutants film in development
