"X-Men 3" Writer Discusses "Wolverine"

by | June 26, 2006 | Comments

Busy screenwriter Simon Kinberg ("Mr. & Mrs. Smith," "xXx: State of the Union") has been hard at work penning the upcoming "Wolverine" spin-off movie, and he recently dropped a few hints and tidbits that the fans may appreciate.

From iFMagazine: "What was working with the Wolverine character like knowing they are planning a "Wolverine" movie?

Kinberg: "Wolverine" doesn’t exactly come after X3 so what happens to him is not terribly relevant to his own movie. We did talk about a couple of characters that they wanted to save for the "Wolverine" movie spin-off. I can’t tell you who they are, but there was really only one we wanted to use for "X-Men: The Last Stand," and they said they’re not going to have a big enough part to risk losing them for "Wolverine." Sabretooth will be in there, but I don’t know in what form. I think his relationship with Wolverine is under explored. I like X1 a great deal, I thought the tone was fantastic and thought the X-Men were great, but I was a little under whelmed by the Brotherhood in that movie. I thought the secret island lair and Magneto’s plot were confusing to me, and Sabretooth and Toad were not as strong as Mystique."
