However, there’s no more info of the character than that, including whether it’s someone who’s been see in the comics or whether it’s someone brand new. Indeed, there’s been very little info at all about the plot, other than that Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine will reteam with Patrick Stewart’s Professor X.
It’s not even known whether this film will continue with the original movie timeline, or will take into account the changes that happened due to the events of Days Of Future Past. As the recent Apocalypse trailer showed us that Wolverine is set to make a surprise appearance in that movie, it may be that film which helps set up how this new standalone Wolverine movie fits into the overall mythology.
James Mangold is set to direct, with a March 2017 release set.
