wolvie-hc“X-Men Origins: Wolverine” opened the summer movie season with a lack of critical or fanboy acclaim, it did however make a sizable chunk of money, so of course a sequel is in the works. There has been little reason to hope the follow-up would be any better. That all changed this week with the news from the Hollywood Reporter that Oscar-winning screenwriter/director Christopher McQuarrie (“The Usual Suspects“, “The Way of the Gun“) has signed on to write the movie.

Not only is McQuarrie a talented writer himself, he’s planning on working directly from the comics. The first Wolverine mini-series by the legendary team of Chris Claremont and Frank Miller will be McQuarrie’s template. The four-issue storyline depicts Wolverine’s struggle to come to terms with his bestial side while in Japan and is widely regarded as one of the best tales in the character’s history.

The last couple of Batman movies have shown that a faithful translation of existing storylines and themes can have spectacular results. Hopefully, that trend will continue with the next Wolvie flick.
