'Wolverine 3'

After nearly two decades of playing the same film character, Australian actor Hugh Jackman will make his last stand in 2017 as the adamantium clawed X-Man in "Wolverine 3."

Directed by American James Mangold, the film will reportedly pull inspiration from the "Old Man Logan" series of comics. If true, we'll likely see Wolverine battling against various supervillains who have managed to take control of the United States. Rumors are swirling that American actor Liev Schreiber, who played Sabertooth in the first "Wolverine," may also return as a possible nemesis.

Thanks to the success of "Deadpool," there's also a very good chance this last solo outing for Jackman will earn an R-rating. So for those fans eager to see what Wolverine can really do to the bad guys, this may be the X-Men film to circle on the calendar.
