According to the following report on Cinema Confidential, "X Men" may spawn a spin-off featuring Wolverine. "While I was speaking to a Fox Studios representative, I asked a question regarding a possible X-Men 3 and 4. He told me that the principal cast have only signed to a two picture deal and that a third and/or fourth X-Men film would have an astronomical budget. With that said he then went on to say there will be a really good chance that a spin-off franchise will spawn from this “X-Men” craziness. The subject of the spin-off franchise will be none other than Wolverine himself."
