thewolverine-featurette2With the ever-expanding X-Men universe, are there any direct ties between the upcoming “The Wolverine” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past?”

“The Wolverine” director James Mangold admitted in an interview with SFX that he worked closely with “X-Men: Days of Future Past” director Bryan Singer. However, “The Wolverine” will be a stand alone movie.

“Clearly the reality is that we are all trying to work together and make things groove together. But the trick is we were making our movie before Bryan came on and before I knew what they were up to in that film,” he said. “Our agenda was always our agenda and our movie stands alone, so the journey we take Logan on in The Wolverine, we bring to a close.”

“The Wolverine” will be in theaters on July 26.
