...Professor X and Wolverine’s father-son relationship, says Hugh Jackman in Collider’s interview with the actor. The film will be written by Jackman and the director of the second Wolverine movie James Mangold, and Patrick Stewart will be reprising his role as the professor.

“I’ll be really honest with you, the actual script in its full form we’re up to about Page 60. Obviously there’s a treatment, so it’s not fully done yet, we’re not fully there. Patrick does figure in it that’s for sure. I think it’s a really important relationship but I want to see signs of that quasi-father/son sort of relationship that has not been seen before, and sides of particularly Professor X that have not been seen before. So we have some really, really cool ideas.”

I surprisingly enjoyed the second film, especially the nutty unrated version, but I have many questions. I wonder how they’re going to deal with the fact that Logan is actually older than the professor. I wonder if there’s room for Yukio to return, since she was the best thing in the previous movie. And, most importantly, how will the ending of Days of Future Past affect the setting for the third movie? Also, will professor’s BFF make an appearance? I mean, he has to, right? He must!
