Wolverine Movie: First Picture!

Wolverine Movie: First Picture!

Here is the very first picture of Hugh Jackman in the new X-Men spin-off movie, Wolverine.

“I know it seems odd given, you know, the guy is already half animal,” Hugh tells USA Today. “But with all the success of the X-Men, you feel the pressure to keep pushing it further.”

Wolverine will be a prequel to the X-Men movies and show a more vulnerable side to the superhero.

“I think one of the reasons the X-Men took off is that it connected in a way nobody saw,” Hugh adds. “They’re mutants with powers. But they’re also outcasts for being, and everyone connects with that on some level. And who wouldn’t want the power to get back at the people who ostracized you?”

Hugh also mentioned that Wolverine‘s nemesis Sabretooth “is going to play a big part in it. And there will be a good bit of cameos [of new and familiar mutants]. But you can’t give too much away, because fans are pretty hard-core. Their expectations go up a level every time you come out with a new film.”

Wolverine slashes its way into theaters on May 1, 2009.

    WOW! Looking good! This movie is going to be fantastic. Just wish it wasn’t more than a year before it hits the big screen.

  • SofiaRocket

    I like Hugh, but I’d prefer to see him in a romantic love story movie!

  • Jocasta666

    Comic fan here. Jackman is PRECISELY how I envisioned Wolvie years ago when I first read the Xmen comics.
    And I’m 50 years old and excited.
    And as for Jackma…rowr.

    That is all.

    He is the perfect Wlverine—–but the muscles are a bit much…

  • Silia

    Good news!Can’t wait to see it!

  • RON

    “the muscles are a bit much”???? Stupid comment black. Wolverine is 5ft3 and weighs 300 pounds of solid muscle in the comic book, Hugh is not buffed enough but he’s doing a good job so far.
