Did anyone like X-Men Origins: Wolverine? I ask not because I'm being a cynical jerk who hates everything, but because I'm genuinely curious. I've yet to meet anyone who enjoyed that offensively soulless, corporate exercise of a motion picture. I hate a lot of things, but I'll take the migraine-inducing, socially irresponsible auteurism on display in something like Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen over the creatively bankrupt further adventures of a character who wore out his welcome about two thirds of the way through X-Men: The Last Stand.

Despite one the biggest second week box office drops ever, X-Men Origins: Wolverine made enough dough to warrant another outing with Hugh Jackman's hairy and anti-social mutant. The Hollywood Reporter's Showbiz 411 Blog is reporting that the script is finished and filming will commence in January of next year.
