It's too bad that Darren Aronofsky dropped out of the Wolverine sequel. I was not a big fan of the first film, which kind of meandered through a very thin plot, but Aronofsky's involvement in the second had me hopeful for a more stylish thoughtful flick. There is still hope though - the movie is reportedly based on Wolverine's first solo mini-series by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller (which is what they should have done the first time). That tale truly cemented the character's iconic status and should make for a markedly different film from the rest of Logan's cinematic outings. Interviews with Hugh Jackman indicate a willingness to really try and capture the feel of those issues, and I hope he succeeds at that.
