Hugh Jackman teases X-Men 'fun'

Sep 19 2013, 12:12am CDT | by Bang Movies

Hugh Jackman's Wolverine will have ''fun'' with Michael Fassbender's Magneto in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'.

The actor has revealed the time-bending movie will allow for some humorous scenes when his clawed superhero travels back in time to save the mutant race.

Jackman has only ever acted opposite Sir Ian McKellen's elder version of villain Magneto in the original 'X-Men' trilogy, but will come face-to-face with Fassbender's younger incarnation in the new film.

He told MTV News: ''It's fair to say we don't get on that well. I get sent back to the past and he has no idea who I am, but you can imagine Wolverine has a bit of fun with that.''

The blockbuster movie directed by Bryan Singer will see stars from the two 'X-Men' franchises - the original trilogy and 'X-Men: First Class' - unite, with Jackman being joined by Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Halle Berry and a host of other A-list actors.

However, he insists the movie isn't just a money-grabbing attempt to copy Marvel's superhero team-up movie, 'The Avengers'.

Jackman said: ''I think some people are saying, 'Ah, this just sounds like an excuse to get all these actors together and make an 'Avengers'-style movie.' But the truth is that it's a great script and Bryan is very ambitious to make the best movie of them all. He's got the biggest cast, the biggest budget, and he started it all, so it's his legacy. He's a fan of time-travel movies, and the detail that's gone into it is incredible.

''I'm quietly confident that it will be the biggest and the best of them all. When I sat there on that panel at Comic Con, and looked down at all the actors, you think, 'This might be one of the best ensembles ever assembled.' ''

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 supervillains are integral to the succes ...

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 de ...

Real Steel 2: The Director Knows The Sequel Is Living On Borrowed Time

Sep 8 2014 4:55pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

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. The movie was actually somewhat of a surprise, receiving an average review of "meh" at best for the plot and story, but lots of praise from audiences and critics ...
