As you may or may not be aware, Hugh Jackman holds the record for the most times portraying a single comic book superhero (seven at present–soon to be eight). He’s the best at what he does–and what he does is play a goddamn pitch-perfect James Howlett/Logan/Wolverine.
But even Jackman knows all good things must come to an end and whatnot. We’ve talked about his future as the animalistic Canadian antihero once or twice before, and a few months ago IGN‘s Scott Collura sat down with the (apparently super nice) actor and discussed, among other things, the likelihood that he’ll be passing the adamantium claws to a successor anytime soon: (more…)
The Wolverine is just a few months away, and I have to admit that I (like many of you out there) am a bit aprehensive about whether this one is going to stink or not. The last Wolverine film was so mind-numbing that I’ve managed to black most of it out for the sake of retaining my sanity. To address our fears, none other than Hugh Jackman has stepped forward to talk about the film and how it, at least to him, does the character justice. Unfortunately, EW is being stingy with their video, so you’ll have to click on Hugh Jackman’s head above to link your way over there
Check out The Wolverine when it hits the screens next month on July 26th.
Thanks to ComicBookMovie for the heads-up.
