Hugh Jackman Promises The "Definitive" Take On Logan In THE WOLVERINE
Despite playing the character in the X-Men trilogy, his own solo spin-off and Matthew Vaughn's prequel, Hugh Jackman reveals that he believes The Wolverine to be his chance to deliver the "definitive" take on the Marvel character.
"I still don't think we've seen the definitive Wolverine," confessed Hugh Jackman in a recent interview with Empire Magazine. The actor has played the iconic Marvel character in FIVE films, and while his take on Logan is loved by fans and critics alike, he's determined that he and James Mangold will both finally deliver THE Wolverine this summer. "And the longer I play the character, the more the desire to get him right grows. The more I speak to fans and explore his world, the more it means to me. Look, there's no question that it's a great role." So, what's changed and why does the Australian actor feel like now is the time to give the fans the Wolverine they truly want? "I didn't fully understand that when I went in, you know? The pressure now is way more. I feel I understand why there's the passion. I understand the character and the legacy and I don't feel, up until this movie, that we've completely lived up to that. So that's what I intend to do." Just another reason to look forward to The Wolverine, eh? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts on Jackman's comments in the usual place!
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
