Rumors that Jackman's last "Wolverine" film will be based on the "Old Man Logan" storyline by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven have circulated since last summer. The storyline saw an aged -- and retired -- Wolverine doing battle with maniacal future versions of Marvel characters in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Kinberg's confirmation of the setting lends credence to the earlier rumors.
