X-Men 3: Wolverine 1

It appears as though Fox have hired Joss Whedon to write the script for X-Men 3 (or X-cubed as the annotation will be). While he will be writing it, the directorial reigns will be taken up by Jonathan Mostow of Terminator 3 fame. Apparently Marvel want X-cubed out of the way to finish off the trilogy and then they'll jump in with the first in the Wolverine franchise. The movies will go on hiatus until a young auteur is identified to take over and do a trilogy based around both the Onslaught and Apocalypse storylines. Of course, when they get around to making Onslaught the Avengers and FF movies will be done so most of the Marvel stable will be onscreen.

As for the storyline for X-cubed, everyone is staying tight lipped, but one of the characters will be Jamie Maddrox using an unknown star who won't command lots of cash for being on screen so many times.
