5 More Fox Franchises That Could Use A Wolverine Appearance
It surprised some fans when, earlier this week, it was suggested Hugh Jackman's Wolverine could appear in X-Men: Apocalypse, logging his eighth opportunity to play the mutant hero within a sixteen year span. That's an incredible run, but worrying, since you'd like to think Jackman and company's energy was instead focusing on that third Wolverine solo film, which apparently will be Jackman's last go-round as the hero.
Frankly, it reeks of desperation, given that you really don't need to cram Wolverine into everything. Trust me, that desire hit Marvel Comics in the 90's, and it was so bad you can't even go back and enjoy reading 90's comics ironically. But whatever the case, Fox is going to thrive on Jackman as Wolverine seemingly forever, so why not use him to boost other Fox franchises? And so we ask, which other Fox franchises deserve a little bit of Wolverine themselves?
TakenThe Premise: When young Kim Mills goes out to the mall with her friend Jubilation Lee, neither of them expected to be hunted down by Sentinels. Now, Kim's father Bryan Mills realizes his special set of skills isn't enough, and he has to seek out a mutant who is the best there is at what he does, though what he does isn't very nice. Together, they visit Madripoor, where the two of them proceed to murder each and every single local until they find the girls.
A post-credits sequence is dedicated to the "good people" of Madripoor for "providing the inspiration to keep going within all of us" and "surviving through your civil war."
