Although Hugh Jackman‘s time as Wolverine appears to be coming to an end with Logan, 20th Century Fox‘s X-Men movie franchise looks like it may just be getting started. Collider reports that Simon Kinberg is in talks with the studio to write and direct the next X-Men movie, rumored to be titled “X-Men: Supernova”.

In the months leading up to the release of this weekend’s X-Men: Apocalypse, many were wondering whether or not Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine would appear in the movie.
