X-Men 2 Prequel: Wolverine by Brian K. VaughanAt the end of the first “X-Men” movie, Professor Charles Xavier told Wolverine he might be able to help him uncover his lost memories. This one-shot, a sort of prequel to the second film, tells the story of Wolverine’s trip to an apparently abandoned military complex that may contain the answers Wolverine seeks, as Xavier has found a link between it and Wolverine’s adamantium-laced skeleton. Traveling to the site, Wolverine encounters Sabretooth, and learns that they have more in common than was previously believed.

This issue whetted appetites for the X-Men movie sequel “X2,” and also hinted at additional details of Wolverine’s origin.

Producer Lauren Shuler Donner first thought of a prequel based on the young X-Men during the production of X2 ; producer Simon Kinberg later suggested to 20th Century Fox an adaptation of the comic series X-Men: First Class , although the film does not follow the comic closely. Singer, who had directed both X-Men and X2 , became involved with the project in , but he could only produce and co-write First Class due to his work on other projects. Vaughn, who was previously attached to both X-Men: The Last Stand and Thor , became the director, and also wrote the final script with his writing partner Jane Goldman.

Principal photography began in August and concluded in December, with additional filming completed in April
