Seems that fish out of water gender role comedy Avon Man is going to have to do without all that Hugh Jackman charm. The film about a manly man finding success in the female dominated home based business has lost their primary lead as Jackman has pulled out… to do Wolverine 2!
Hugh Jackman has left the project Avon Man, of which he has recently been attached to star in after his robot flick, Real Steel.
The site presumes, as do we, that this is because he is ready for the mutton chops and claws again for Wolverine 2, which rumor has it is going into production next year.
I am really eager to see Wolverine 2 just out of the morbid curiousity that they might pull it out of the X-Men tailspin the films have been in since The Last Stand.
I didn’t hate The Last Stand, and I did enjoy about half of Origins Wolverine. But they were not up to par with the first two X-Films and this franchise deserves better.
There is a lot of positive buzz around First Class lately, but I would really like to see them recover from Origins Wolverine.
Hell, I’d like to see them remaster Origins Wolverine with some dialogue changes like Stryker suddenly knowing that an admantium bullet will wipe Logan’s memory, or just saying that Weapon XI isn’t Wade Wilson. And fix the damed fake looking claws in the bathroom scene…. I hope someone got fired over those highschool hack effects.
Those things alone would improve the film about 90%
