08.11.09 by Ryan
After the box-office success of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a sequel was immediately put into production. Hugh Jackman spoke to MTV to briefly update the progress on the Wolverine sequel:
Japan is where we're heading, [and] we're starting to work on it now. We're in ... the first steps of developing that story. I think the fans love that saga. It's my favorite saga of the Wolverine stories. That's a movie I've longed to make from the beginning, so that's where we're heading.
The story Jackman is referencing is a four-issue comic book series written by Chris Claremont and drawn by Frank Miller in 1982. In it, Wolverine heads to Japan to confront a lost love and ends up battling her father and a ninja clan called The Hand.
