Wolverine fans might have to wait longer than they originally anticipated for a sequel to Hugh Jackman's pretty awful (yet highly successful) X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie. Hey, at least it's happening. Maybe. Right?
Perhaps the announcement that director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) had left the project this past March despite production being ready to begin on 'The Wolverine' was a bad omen for the film. Now it seems Wolverine fans will have to wait even longer for a proper movie about the popular X-Man. According to Hugh Jackman, production on 'The Wolverine' has been pushed to 2012, following the filming of his next project, 'Les Miserables.'

“I think Les Mis is my next movie — in fact, I know that — and then after that we’ll shoot it,” the actor told Leicester Square TV at the U.K. premiere of Real Steel. “We start shooting next year.”
Even though this isn't the best news for Logan fans, the good news is that the actor still really digs the character. According to the interview with Leicester Square TV, Wolverine is "eternally fascinating" to Jackman.
"He's eternally fascinating to me...why? He's [a] dark, tortured, interesting, flawed character who somehow [feels the need] to carry the weight of the world on his shoulders and I sort of feel like we haven't nailed him [yet] and I really want to get him."
Hey, at least his heart is in the right place, right?
