The Wolverine 3 may be getting a new title - here are the options

From X-23's possible involvement (opens in new tab) to Logan facing off against the Reavers (opens in new tab), there is plenty of rumour and speculation currently surrounding Wolverine 3, and the latest bit of scuttlebutt concerns the title of the movie. According to various sources, 20th Century Fox have registered two potential titles; X-MenFilms.com (opens in new tab) is reporting that Wolverine: Weapon X (or Weapon X for short) will be the title, while Crunchbace (opens in new tab) is reporting on the slightly more spoilery The Death of Logan title, with thedeathoflogan.com redirecting to Fox's website.

The Wolverine sequence in X-Men: Apocalypse (opens in new tab) had Hugh Jackman's mutant in full Weapon X mode, so it's not a surprise to see Fox considering it for the title. I would be surprised if they dropped Wolverine from the title entirely; that name is simply more familiar to cinemagoers who have watched the X-Men films over the last decade, and many of them won't know Logan's comic book history.

Of course, the title doesn't matter nearly as much as what the movie contains, so here's hoping we get some concrete news on Wolverine 3 - or whatever it winds up being called - soon.

Directed by James Mangold and starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, and Elizabeth Rodriguez, Wolverine 3 will be released in cinemas on March 3, 2017.
