It’s been a few months since the Illuminerdi revealed that the X-Men are potentially making their return under the title, The Mutants. We haven’t heard anything about the franchise and Marvel Studios’ plans for them since. Well, the latest rumor may be hinting at the return of one icon, Wolverine. Hugh Jackman made Logan one of the central figures of 20th Century Fox’s franchise. It was uncertain if Kevin Feige would try to take a unique approach and leave him out since the character has become synonymous with the actor. Well, That Hashtag Show reports that Marvel Studios is in early development on a Wolverine-centric Disney+ show.
Now, the thing that makes it rather interesting is that they claim that the series will be an anthology series. The first season aims to adapt the iconic Weapon X story and generally act as his origin within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The project is in the very early stages of development. So, there is no talent attached in any way. That Hashtag Show believe they might be aiming to reveal something during this year’s D23 event, which is interesting given that it has been cancelled.
It is a rumor for now. So, we have to take it with a grain of salt. Still, it would be a creative approach. Wolverine has lived a long life, as teased in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. They could use this format to introduce the character and explore parts of his history that weren’t the spotlight of the X-Men franchise. We’ll see if Wolverine will continue to keep the spotlight in future ventures, or if he might take a backseat for some time.
