Old Man Logan Sequel?

Last night, Mark Millar announced on the message board for his website that he has plotted the sequel to "Old Man Logan". The project hasn't been formally pitched to Marvel yet but will most likely be approved. Millar was originally offered to pen another story but while writing notes came up with the sequel for "Old Man Logan".

For those of you not familiar with the original story, here is a description from Marvel's solicitations. "MARK MILLAR and STEVE MCNIVEN—who last teamed for the monumental CIVIL WAR—bring us the most important WOLVERINE story of the 21st Century. Nobody knows what happened on the night the heroes fell. All we know is that they disappeared and evil triumphed and the bad guys have been calling the shots ever since. What happened to Wolverine is the biggest mystery of all. For 50 years, no one has heard hide nor hair from him…and in his place stands an old man called Logan. A man concerned only about his family. A man pushed to the brink by the HULK GANG. A man forced to help an old friend—the blind archer, HAWKEYE—to drive three thousand miles to secure his family’s safety. Get ready for the ride of your life, Logan." Think of the movie "Unforgiven" but replace Clint Eastwood with Wolverine.

The original was phenominal  and I only have two requests for the sequel. First that Steve McNiven returns as the artist. Second, MORE T-REX VENOM!!!! That was too awesome of an idea to only be in one scene. I highly recommend that you go out and buy the hardcover collection of this story. I'll post more details as they are announced.
