Is This the Name of the Third Wolverine Movie?
Ever since Wolverine 3 was announced, fans have been clamoring for an Old Man Logan adaptation, which would be perfectly suited to Hugh Jackman's last time putting on the claws. But now, a rumored title is making the rounds, and it's not quite what you might expect.

According to a new report from Gamezone, the new film will be called simply "Weapon X." They only cite vague "sources close to the project," so take it with a grain of salt, but they claim that the sources are "reliable," and that we will be getting confirmation of the title, as well as a new poster and the first footage, at San Diego Comic Con this summer.

The report is definitely unconfirmed, but it's hard to say how likely it is to be true. On the one hand, Weapon X seems to be more related to Wolverine's origin story, and recent pictures of Jackman sporting a telltale trucker hat and beard fanned the flames of the rumors that Old Man Logan would be central to the film's storyline:

But then again, even if these rumors are true, this doesn't necessarily mean that Weapon X isn't the title. "Old Man Logan" isn't especially flashy for the title of a big Hollywood blockbuster, and the final installments of trilogies tend to hearken back to the origin story in some way. Plus, if the Weapon X program plays a large role in the film, that could open the door for X-23 to take over for Jackman's Logan in future movies.

Wolverine 3 is slated to open in theaters on March 2, 2017.
