5 Reasons 'The Wolverine' Can Make Up for 'X-Men Origins'

X-Men Shared Movie Universe

Even though The Wolverine is a standalone film, it was recently confirmed that there is a post-credits scene that teases where the studio intends to take the X-Men franchise - as they look to build a larger universe of X-Men films (similar to Marvel Studios' Avengers shared universe).

This movie in particular may not be a launching pad for such a plan (like Iron Man was to Marvel back in 2008), but the prospect of a tease for the future is more than enough to generate interest among moviegoers, as Fox will quickly shift gears to next summer’s ambitious X-Men Days of Future Past.

With an X-Force film currently in development, the studio obviously has big plans to do more with their Marvel properties. The Wolverine’s button will provide us with that first look and it will be interesting, if nothing else, to see what directions they take.
