The latest movie poster for THE WOLVERINE focuses on JEAN GREY, who we are led to believe only has a small role in the film. The main question that comes to mind is; how or if WOLVERINE will make any attempts to tie into X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST?
SFX managed to question director James Mangold on any possible crossover between THE WOLVERINE and X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST:
“Clearly the reality is that we are all trying to work together and make things groove together. But the trick is we were making our movie before Bryan came on and before I knew what they were up to in that film. Our agenda was always our agenda and our movie stands alone, so the journey we take Logan on in The Wolverine, we bring to a close.”
Going by this quote alone, I suspect that there may be some truth to the rumor that the only reference to X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST will be in the post credit sequence. As a fan, that’s slightly disappointing as this was FOX’s chance to outdo what MARVEL have done with their films.
