No Wolverine film has been announced by Marvel Studios yet, but ideas have leaked about his MCU franchise. Specifically, Patch.
First of all, Marvel Studios wants to incorporate different sides of Wolverine from his lengthy comic-book history.
Madripoor in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is no mere Easter egg.
In other words, Marvel Studios is previewing the future.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige enjoyed Wolverine’s pirate adventures as “Patch” in Madripoor.
They will be adapted in at least one of the upcoming Wolverine movies.
Madripoor was introduced in New Mutants No. 35 (1985).
The issue was written by Chris Claremont with art by Steve Leialoha.
His Madripoor adventures were inspired by Milton Caniff’s Terry and the Pirates comic strip from the ’30s and ’40s.
Wolverine: Leaked Details on Marvel Studios Patch Film
At the time, Wolverine’s Patch stories were a refreshing change of pace.
Although it was not a reboot, it was a new look for the character both visually and in genre.
Furthermore, It was more of a stripped-down approach for Wolverine.
It went beyond the mostly science-fiction scenarios of the X-Men.
Insiders reveal that villains like Tyger Tiger and (more info on that later) are among the baddies Wolverine will tangle with.
Of the two, Tyger Tiger will have the more prominent role.
Tyger Tiger, otherwise known as Jessan Hoan, is a crime lord in Madripoor; furthermore, she will be a love interest for Wolverine in the MCU.
Leaked Details on Marvel Studios Wolverine Patch Film
In 2019, I scooped that Wolverine could possibly face the Hulk in Canada for his initial MCU solo film.
Sources explained that Madripoor is discussed for his second.
Marvel Studios maps out their projects years in advance.
This shouldn’t be a shock.
Nevertheless, it isn’t just the location of Madripoor that is the revelation here.
It’s the style they’re going for, a rollicking pirate movie.
No, there is no intention of echoing a Johnny Depp vibe here.
Marvel Studios will push the envelope of PG-13 violence in Madripoor.
After seeing the bloodletting on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, there’s no doubt Disney can pull this off.
Logan Was An Ending, This Is A New Beginning
However, those expecting the melancholic Unforgiven tone of Logan shouldn’t expect that there.
Logan was an ending; this is a new beginning.
Wolverine will then move on to a different place and film genre.
After all, Marvel Studios wants to keep the character fresh.
Hugh Jackman’s portrayal of Wolverine as a likeable rogue will remain even if he is recast.
Don’t get me wrong: if there is a new actor, he is going to leave his own individual mark.
Feige simply wants him to be true to the comics.
