Hugh Jackman talks XMen Origins: Wolverine

Hugh Jackman recently sat down to talk about XMen Origins: Wolverine, and from what I have read, this movie is really shaping up to be very cool.

Superhero Hype offers:

Jackman is deep into shooting an X-Men spinoff and new Seed project Wolverine in Sydney with co-stars Liev Schreiber and Ryan Reynolds.

“I’m used to these movies now,” he says. “They’re big and there’s a lot involved, a lot at stake, so it’s always high pressure. But Gavin Hood, our director, is a real force. He’s an Oscar-winning director (for Tsotsi) and he’s used to working under different kinds of pressure and stresses.”

Jackman hand-picked Melbourne youngster Kodi Smit-McPhee (Romulus, My Father) to play Wolverine as a young man.

This spells out a lot of good things to me about this spinoff. The XMen movies did sometimes focus a little too much on Wolverine. However as much as they focused on Logan, they still didnt get into the heart of the stories that made him such an interesting character so I think it is a good idea to give him his own movie.

This will serve to show us a lot more detail into Wolverine’s past as well as getting to see him throw down with great iconic nemesis like Sabretooth and Deadpool. Both fan favourites.

Furthermore Jackman gives his endorsement to the young actor who will play Wolverine as a child. So we will get plenty of flashback stuff too. I hope this really helps to flesh out his story.

This will be the climax to the geekgasm that the comicbook fanboys have been getting foreplay with in the XFilms.
