(CBR) After "The Wolverine" proved audiences both international and domestic are still up for more slicing and dicing Hugh Jackman action, it was a no-brainer when Fox announced that it is prepping a follow-up film with returning director James Mangold. No matter the outcome of 2014's very apocalyptic "X-Men: Days of Future Past," Wolverine will be back for more.

But before Jackman signs on for his seventh feature length outing as Logan, the actor has gone on record with one requirement for the next sequel: "I think we've got a great opportunity to make something really cool," the actor stated in an interview. "It has to be great. That's what we're all working toward.”

With that in mind, here are five great Wolverine stories, spanning a variety of genres, all of which are practically begging to get the Mangold/Jackman big screen treatment.
