Hugh Jackman is Claw-Pawed Perfect

Hugh Jackman is Claw-Pawed Perfect

Hugh Jackman looks ready to slice someone up in this first look still of the upcoming X-Men Origins: Wolverine, out May 1.

EW writes the movie will tell “his own creation story, which traces how Logan’s macho rivalry with Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber) and his thwarted love affair with Silver Fox (Lynn Collins) set the stage for his transformation into Wolverine.”

Producer Lauren Shuler Donner explains why Hugh‘s character was given a spin-off movie: ”It wasn’t always part of the plan, but Hugh brought that character to vivid life.” She also recalls one of water-tank scenes where his character is injected with adamantium: “We tortured the man. he is an animal. A normal person could not do that.”

    I like Hugh Jackman as Wolverine but Wolverine as a character was always my least favourite X-Man in the tv series so I really have no inclination to see this no matter how good it actually is. I’ll wait til it’s on telly.

    If they’d done a Cyclops, Magneto or Beast film, I’d have been there front row, 1st day of release!

  • lua

    Oh I would love to see Beast! On another I will see this, but only because Hugh Jackman is too hot for words

  • Megan Fox

    Jackman is a great actor, but for this movie, it’s like watching one of the Spice Girls doing their first solo concert.

  • Mark my words

    I know Logan now for 30 years and I was really worried when I read about an X-Men movie in 1999.
    But also the lack of physical resemblance Hugh Jackman was “my Logan” come alive.

    Now, 10 years after, I am afraid again.
    Will he be able to stand a believable prequel of the X-Men films.
    And Logan´s story is quite a challenge.

    He is my favourite actor, a radiant hope between all those Hollywood Zombies – and if he can do that, he will be able to do almost everything…as long as they don´t made the movie only stuff for actionhungry teenagers and forgot what made the Marvel comics unique when I started reading them: The human beings behind the mutation.
