2012 Release for ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2′?

Hugh Jackman is 'Wolverine'

MTV caught up with Hugh Jackman after X-Men Origins: Wolverine won the Teen Choice Award for the best action/adventure film over the weekend.

They posted a snippet of their interview a few days ago in which Jackman confirmed development on the sequel had started and that it would be based on the Japanese story featured in the 1982 Chris Claremont and Frank Miller four issue miniseries Wolverine.

They’ve now posted another snippet from the same interview in which Jackman says the sequel will be the “sexiest” yet and hints at a 2012 release date.

Watch the snippet after the jump.

If you missed the first snippet of the interview, you can watch it here.

    Oh, great.

    I want to be excited for this; I really do.

    But all that fudging near the end–”pretty close”, “lots of new mutants” . . .

    They’re going to make me cry. Again. And not in a good way.

    well i think it will be cool because all the x-men films were cool but people didnt like x-men 3 and origins wolverine for sum reason but the the writer of x-men 1 is writing wolverine 2 so people might not give this bad reviews. i think each x-men film gets better and better i dont care if other people dont like it x-men origins wolverine is my favourite marvel film.

    lady daeth strike, how about x-23,omega red and silver samrai.


    I love the idea that the next x-men movie is going to be taking place in japan also i am a big fan of the marvel comics and silver samari should be the bad guy in the movie just like in the comic book and i think this movie is going to be a sussess also wolverine is my favorite x-man and should have new mutants like omega red, arcade, quicksilver, or graydon creed and wolverine’s love interest should be Mariko the woman he fell in love with in the comic book.

    The most important thing is HUGH JACKMAN must reprise the role as James Howlett/ Logan or Wolverine. He is well discipline and serious about the role. Job well done, Hugh. Two thumbs up!
