Hugh Jackman a vulnerable Wolverine

Jun 30 2013, 4:20am CDT | by

Hugh Jackman's character is ''vulnerable in every way'' in 'The Wolverine'.

The actor reprises his role as the clawed anti-hero for the upcoming 'X-Men' spin-off movie and says it includes a much deeper exploration into the character than previous 'X-Men' films, or 2009's 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'.

He told SFX magazine: ''In this story, he becomes literally vulnerable in every way. Not just emotionally, but physically vulnerable, and those implications were fun to play.''

'The Wolverine' takes place after the events of 2006's 'X-Men: The Last Stand' and sees the nearly indestructible character isolate himself in Japan as he grieves the death of close friends and his love interest, Jean Grey [played by Famke Janssen].

Jackman added: ''You see Logan [Wolverine's real name] at his lowest point at the beginning of this movie; the tragedy of his wasted life. For the sake of not only himself but everyone around him, he thinks it's better to be away because when he comes back to the world, there's destruction and pain.''

Director James Mangold admits he was attracted to the film because of Wolverine's personal struggles, rather than just making a straight superhero action film.

He explained: ''I have a hero who has lost everything and everyone, some at his own hands. In some cases the casualty of being [nearly] immortal is that you outlast the mortals you love and you have to go on forever without them. For me, finding a character in that predicament of being lost emotionally, but not depressed, was the classic predicament of Westerns and samurai films.

''It's a man of violence, who has violence in his past and is trying to separate himself from the world so no one gets hurt, but ultimately gets called upon to use that power and violence for good. It's absolutely the trajectory of our film.''

Why Superhero Movies Need Better Villains

Sep 12 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: ign

It's often said that a hero is only as strong as his villains. What's the point of a superhero who doesn't have evil to battle against, after all? Would Batman be as memorable if it weren't for villains like Joker, Two-Face, and Catwoman? Would Wolverine still be the best there is without Sabretooth or Mystique or Lady Deathstrike pushing him to persevere? Comic fans will agree that super ...

Sep 8 2014 5:24pm CDT | Source: Collider

We were talking Real Steel 2 well before the first film even came out, but now, three years later, we’re still without that sequel.  However, that doesn’t mean director Shawn Levy isn’t thinking about it.  In fact, he said he’s been “quietly developing” it for years now. The first film starred Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up boxer who turns to robot boxing to make a living.  After his robot is destroyed in a fight, Ch ...

Pop quiz: Did you know that Real Steel grossed almost $300 million worldwide at the box office? What's that? No, I'm not mistaken. I'm definitely talking about the 2011 Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots-meets- Pacific Rim boxing robots movie starring Hugh Jackman.

With X-Men: Days of Future Past being both a hit and much better than most people expected, the gears are moving fast for X-Men: Apocalypse.  As the title and the post-credits stinger at the end of DOFP imply, the primary antagonist will be the supervillain Apocalypse.  The story will follow the First Class gang along with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine into the 1980s.  We also know from the treatment page teased last month that the Four Horseman will again ...
