The Wolverine is an upcoming American/Australian superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Wolverine. It is intended to be the sixth installment in the X-Men film series and a stand-alone sequel to the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Hugh Jackman is set to star as the title character with James Mangold directing a screenplay written by Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback, based on the 1982 limited series, Wolverine by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller. The Wolverine is scheduled to be released on July 26, 2013.
However, in October 2009, Ian McKellen confirmed that he will not be reprising his role as Magneto, citing his age as a barrier. X-Men's producer Lauren Shuler Donner recently stated that the movie may never be made. In an October 2009 interview with Empire, Donner claimed that "the studio has a wealth of potential stories, and they have to stand back and decide which ones to make. And Magneto, I think, is at the back of the queue. Maybe it'll get made in five years - who knows?"
I have not seen the movie, so no clue about that guy... But I am reading he has 300, First Class, Prometheus & Inglourious Basterds in his resumeAlso reading now that he is part of the First Class sequel to be released in 2014...
