Everyone has been all aflutter over the rumor that celebrated auteur Darren Aronofsky will direct the second X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie, and now it's confirmed, straight from the Logan's mouth. While Aronofsky has worked with Hugh Jackman before and is arguably the best there is at what he does (and what he does is so, so pretty), many are questioning how the dark director will handle the New Avenger. But Jackman himself is quick to point out that Wolverine is far from cuddly, and we wholeheartedly concur; if you ask us, the franchise could easily go a lot darker. In fact, if you look at Logan's comic book history along side Aronofsky's body of work, you'll see a lot of similarities!
Although it's not officially confirmed yet, word on the street is that Twilight: Eclipse director David Slade will direct Wolverine 2. While Wolverine fans worldwide are probably groaning that the director of a girly vampire film may be put in charge of the rugged anti-hero, they should consider two things: 1. Eclipse was one big vampire-werewolf fight. 2. Logan and Edward Cullen have a lot in common. Check out our long list of similarities between the two.
