While promoting 'Real Steel' at the San Diego Comic Con, Hugh Jackman also reveals that the filming for the 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' sequel would be kicked off in October.

Hugh Jackman has surprised fans with several tidbits on the highly-anticipated sequel of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". While making an appearance at this year's San Diego Comic Con to promote "Real Steel" on Thursday, July 21, the 42-year-old actor told the crowd gathering who the villain will be in "The Wolverine".

"I'll fight the Silver Samurai in it so that should be exciting," spilled Hugh as quoted by ScreenRant. He also revealed that the shooting is scheduled to start in October with most of the filming taking place in Japan. Additionally, he gushed, "Chris McQuarrie has written a fantastic script and it should turn out really good."

"The Wolverine" has "3:10 to Yuma" director James Mangold replacing "Black Swan" Darren Aronofsky in the helming duty. This second Wolverine movie will be set in Japan with incorporated elements of ninja storyline. 20th Century Fox has yet to set a release date, and there is no word on who will play the Silver Samurai.
