Are you not quite ready to say goodbye to films about Wolverine? Well, this news might break your heart a little bit more, as it was revealed last month that we almost got a movie about the life of a young Logan.
During an interview with Uproxx about the latest Kingsman movie, Matthew Vaughn shared what his initial plans were for his segment of the X-Men film universe.
“I didn’t want to do Days of Future Past next. I felt that one should be in a trilogy and Days of Future Past should be the finale of that story,” he said. “I would have done a film in-between where you meet the young Wolverine and a new character, and then in Days of Future Past became the young Wolverine and the old Wolverine and just really blow it out.”
Vaughn went on to say that ultimately, the studio had the final say, and Fox wasn’t interested in pursuing this direction with the franchise. Of course, this wasn’t the only thing in the way, as it is rumored that Vaughn discovered a project similar to Kingsman being created by another studio, causing him to want to get the Kingsman franchise going as quickly as he possibly could.
Tom Hardy could've been a young Wolverine
Rumor has it that Tom Hardy was in the running to play a younger Wolverine. While speaking with Deadline, Vaughn has this to say.
“Why don't we do another, one set in the '70s, because of Young Wolverine, and then the third one is Days of Future Past, where you're seeing the Young Wolverine with, let's say it's Tom Hardy, and Hugh Jackman and all the other characters were together.”
As for Hugh Jackman? Well, the idea of casting Hardy has earned his seal of approval, saying, ““He’s younger than me for sure, I think Tom Hardy would be a great Wolverine.”
