Star Trek Sequel Hits in 2012, Wolverine 2 is Shooting in 2011
I think Hollywood can only see two years into the future. Now that it's 2010, that means it's time to start scheduling movies for 2012. Last year they didn't go beyond 2011. Anyway, first things first, ComingSoon has learned that Paramount has set a June 29th, 2012 release for the untitled Star Trek sequel. I would call it Star Trek 2, but I was already informed previously that this is technically the 12th Star Trek movie, so that title wouldn't be inaccurate. In related 2012 news, SHH found a video with Hugh Jackman chatting about shooting Wolverine 2 starting early to mid-2011. Therefore we can also expect that to hit in 2012.
I don't think these are the very first movies to get 2012 release dates (The Avengers is scheduled for May 4th; Pixar and DreamWorks also have some movies scheduled for 2012, too), but they are two very highly anticipated sequels that we now know will be hitting two or so years from now in 2012 (just before the world ends). We already know that the Wolverine sequel will be about Logan traveling to Japan and training with samurai, but as for the Star Trek sequel, we don't know anything about it at all. Hell, we don't even know if J.J. Abrams will be back to direct or not. Hopefully we'll find out an answer to that question soon. Excited?

I trust Star Trek the sequel will be nicely done, i really hope Wolverine is done properly this time.

Anyone excited for a Wolverine sequel should kill themselves now.

they really have nowhere good to go with the wolverine prequel franchise. i am a fan of jackman as wolverine though. i want to say i'd like them to take the franchise FORWARD as in post x-men, but i don't know how they would do it. I know they aren't going to do this, but early on I thought that they would have the avengers team be Capt. America, Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, and Spider-man, but they couldn't really take the last two franchises there... I wish they had a way to work them in though

I'm excited for Wolverine 2 but I think I'll watch it first and then suicide unless it's a good movie. I'm a huge fan of Jackman as Wolverine (no one will ever manage to play that role better than him in possible future remakes. It'd be like doing a remake of 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly', with some poor guy playing Eastwood's part) and I think the sequel will be a better movie than the first one. At least it has to be.

Wolverine was decent but it fell short, and I'm willing to see Wolverine 2. Star Trek 2 HELL YEAH!

Another Wolverine??? I wish I had $$$ to waste like these guys do. I mean, why bother with a sequel to a reeker like that??? it was best stated in a review on this same subject at another site..."you cant make a plie of sh*t look any better by piling another piece of sh*t on top of it..." same goes for that hack JJ Abrams and his "bromance-in-space" abomination of Star Trek...what a world...

I am looking forward to Wolverine 2. The first one was good, not the best, but good.

If someone told me a year ago today that Star Trek would be sooo much better than Wolverine, I would thought they're out of their F'n mind.

Wolverine had to be the biggest disappointment I ever had as a moviegoer. I don't know how they will be able to fix it. I guess the studio will try and fix it by having wolverine fight ninja's and drink saki. JJ Abrams made an enjoyable Star Trek Movie which is a difficult task. I hope he directs the next one.

@7 slaphappypimpflappy JJ Abrams is a hack? Since when? People overwhelmingly loved Star Trek along with pretty much everything else he's done. Do agree w/ you on Wolverine though.

Stoked for Star Trek 2!!! Now another Wolverine movie is just depressing.

excited only for The Avengers...then there's madagascar 3, the hobbit, tintin, indiana jones 5, spiderman, iron man3.....the list goes on and on...i need a darker version of Superman :D...

Star Trek 2 should be solid, I don't see why it wouldn't be at least bearable, the first Abrams one was so good I forgot I was watching a geek show. Wolverine was a bit of a shiny exploding storm of neon, it could do good if it was closely centred around Logan himslef and not a bunch of cheesy mutants, but that's not going to happen so bring on the lazoooooooooooooooooors and explosions.

Star Trek 2. Good! I need me some more Zoe!

The producers of Trek 2 and W2 are already looking at agents submissions for cast for these sequels. Mine submitted me for W2 as I'm here in Sydney anyway, but I'll get her to put me in for Trek 2 as well. Got a screen test for Fury Road in June though, after my audition just before Christmas, so fingers crossed.

#16 If your agent has already gotten hold of casting briefs for these movies and submitted you already, that's great, but you won't get any kind of response for the producers or their casting director for at least 6-9 months. Still your agent seems to be doing her job - who is she? I'm in Perth and maybe I can get my agent here to refer me, if yours is looking that is.

16 and 17: I assume you guys have your O-1 or greencard right? Not telling you your business but you need those if you want to work over here. But you seem to be Aussie's and they seem to have an easier and quicker time getting them so I wish you well.

OH GREAT WOLVERINE 5,i suppose it can't be no worse than WOLVERINE 4,japan,silver samurai & some ninjas could be good like the first 20 mins of wolverine 4,maybe fox should give it back to marvel studio's.
tobi,leader of the akatsuki on Jan 10, 2010
to solve that star trek two or twelve title problem may i suggest STAR TREK (1)2. just a thought.
salber on cinema on Jan 10, 2010
j.j abrams for the avengers.
tobi,leader of the akatsuki on Jan 10, 2010
There's no point in scheduling beyond 2012 anyway. End of the world and all.
Matt on Jan 10, 2010
they are are making the wolverine 2 movie to show the connections between Nick Fury and Wolverine and the missions he had to do and maybe they might show how William Stryker learned how to add mutant powers to mutant . so........most likely we are goin to see Sinister and a glimps of Apocalypse but i can't wait to see it as well as captain america, spider-man , thor, and star trek
kingdavid on Jan 10, 2010
Star Trek I will be waiting for... Wolverine I did like the first one, so I think I'll see the second one. Though I think thay have "crashed" all the things that X-MEN stand for. I am a Cyclops fan... I wantta see a spin-off of him.....

J.J. Abrams, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman need to surpass Star Trek (2009) and rectify the mistakes that they made because as much as it was a tremendous film, I was still privately disappointed because it could have easily have been so much better. The Orion Syndicate as the villains, larger all-star cast as well as many cameos including by William Shatner and Lady Gaga, larger space battles with more starships, bringing back Chris Hemsworth, Jennifer Morrison, Rachel Nichols, Winona Ryder and Diora Baird, Kirk having better fighting skills and several human love interests played by Hollywood’s most beautiful young actresses, no cut scenes and the Jerry Goldsmith theme music from the Star Trek Insurrection end credits as well as the album version of ‘Where My Heart Will Take Me’ used at the end.
