Hugh Jackman talks Wolverine
Hugh Jackman has been talking about X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Last we heard there were a lot of people being cast as mutants, leading us to wonder how different it would be to the other X-Men films. Jackman has been talking about just that, about the tone of the film, and the likely hood of any more Wolverine films.
Talking to MTV Movies Blog Jackman said the film will be different to the first, but not drastically so. And that the tone of the film will not be unlike a previous big blockbuster.
It feels different, but I don’t think its going be night and day...We are dealing with a character who is probably one of the darker comic book characters ever created. The movie has a lot of fun elements, but there are layers of pain and darkness to this character...Tonally, I would put it more in the ‘Batman Begins’ sort of realm, that’s sort of where we’re headed.
So it looks like it will have a different feel to it than the X-Men films. Interestingly we could also be seeing more Wolverine films in the future as well, depending on two things.
There are two conditions for me doing any more: One is will anybody want to see it, and the second is: Will I still have the passion for it? I really wanted to do this spin-off movie, because I felt we hadn’t truly found who this character was...Right now I feel like I could do another ten or eleven.
Are you up for more Wolverine films, or is that dependent on the success of this one? And is a Magneto film something you're happy to see? Surely the appetite for X-Men films and spin offs has a limit?
