He'd be an interesting Dr. Strange.

chujong - 5/20/2014, 9:28 PM
Love Hugh Jackman! He seems so cool. Guy is freaking too awesome for words!
TonyChu - 5/20/2014, 9:28 PM
I was at the barbershop watching his ESPN interviews and he had all the barbers and everybody debating. Who would win Iron Man, Batman, Hulk, or Wolverine? Had me cracking up.

CENA SUCKS!!!!!!!!!
John Cena Sucks John Cena Sucks John Cena Sucks John Cena Sucks John Cena Sucks

You can't really hate Jackman.

What he projects in front of the camera during interviews is a pretty down to earth and humorous guy.

He comes across as being pretty cool.
Now I don't know about his private life, but I'd hope this was the real him.

This movie is going to be huge. The promotional team for this movie are [frick]ing killing. Why doesn't Marvel Studios do this? Isn't ESPN owned by Disney.
TheBigBoss917 - 5/20/2014, 9:40 PM
@TonyChu The answer is Batman.
JoeMomma29 - 5/20/2014, 9:57 PM
@ GoldenOne

Please stop posting videos of that dude, he is fricking annoying not even funny to say the least. The only thing I am impressed with the dude is how he manage to con that many people to subscribe to him.

Also please tell me what that has to do with comic books, CBMs, or graphic novels? It is a just a stupid rant about a old dudes at the gym............

I love Hugh as Wolverine, but he would make a great Dr. Strange.
0bstreperous - 5/20/2014, 10:11 PM
I saw the movie guys and though ill be seeing it again at midnight I have to confess its no x-2

Hugh should always wear his hair like logan





rubbish78 - 5/20/2014, 10:24 PM
He is so much fun! Love him =D
Amazing512 - 5/20/2014, 10:27 PM
CENA SUCKS
Jollem - 5/20/2014, 10:28 PM
almost x-men time. i so excited
0bstreperous - 5/20/2014, 10:35 PM
And although I thought first class was blasphemous the ending to this fstrengths strilm doesn't really do anything for me

The film was well paced but a bit dull quicksilver will make you smile but mystique has some cringe worthy scenes imo

All in all no single actor carries the film they play off each other's strengths

I didn't feel it had a distinct xmenesqe resolution to the past conflict

Again I've had a couple weeks to reflect

AstroZombie - 5/20/2014, 10:41 PM
John Cena just shit his jorts.
GliderMan - 5/20/2014, 11:01 PM
Honestly I really wanna see Hugh Jackman's Wolverine with the Avengers. I would nerd the [frick] out.
soforizo - 5/20/2014, 11:20 PM
Damn... I keep thinking about Ed Norton. What a contrast!
This is how you do it Ed!


BlindJustice - 5/20/2014, 11:57 PM
What if Hugh Jackman bought the rights to the Wolverine character and then sold them to Disney with one stipulation... That he plays Wolverine and joins the Avengers. Damn that'd be awesome.

Jollem - 5/21/2014, 12:21 AM
no, no, no. no wolverine being a'venger and no spidey being a 'venger. they have been 'vengers, but they really aren't 'venger staples
kevberg - 5/21/2014, 12:32 AM
Oh man .. Hugh didnt just do that on a whim.. bet this is a wrestlemania 31 lead up or something. no point for him to do that unless there was one.
TheAmericanPatriot - 5/21/2014, 12:49 AM
@ TonyChu


Batman will get his overrated ass handed to him then all the DC Commie Fanboys will complain that he didn't have any prep time.
0megaDaGod - 5/21/2014, 12:55 AM
He REALLY wants to be in Avengers. LOL

Gotta love Jackman, even if his Wolverine has been more miss than hit
mgeoff88 - 5/21/2014, 1:03 AM
Hugh Jackman is a really cool guy. I'm glad he decided to stick with playing Wolverine longer.

After DOFP, he seems a lot more excited and passionate about the X-Men movies.

@GoldenOne I didn't get your article... I'm not sure if you're joking with Gusto? Or if you're actually mad at him?

Btw, the guy in the video has no balls. Him saying he's worried about getting traumatized over seeing old men naked in a gym bathroom... I've seen things 100x worse than that. Guy is in his late 30's and he is acting like a damn cry baby. He should be ashamed of himself.
mgeoff88 - 5/21/2014, 1:28 AM
@TheAmericanPatriot You sound like a broken record. Referring to DC fans as "commies" doesn't make any sense at all. Superman stands for truth, justice, and the American way. Wonder Woman wears star spangled short shorts to honor her new home, the USA. Hal Jordan/Green Lantern works for the USAF for crying out loud.
Cartoon22 - 5/21/2014, 1:48 AM
I got that reference
konoyaro - 5/21/2014, 1:56 AM
Jackman is THE COOLEST.




but i don't know,some of these promos are getting a little too silly IMO...
arsonjack - 5/21/2014, 2:03 AM
hugh jackman what a class act
McGee - 5/21/2014, 2:53 AM
Jobu - 5/21/2014, 3:03 AM
Clearly Hugh is a solid bloke.
grif - 5/21/2014, 3:48 AM
the man is clearly making a shit load of movies outside of wolverine and xmen. what a career.
UltimateHunt - 5/21/2014, 3:50 AM
What happend to WWE,? Their is no reap badass athlete. You die a hero or live long enough to become the villian--- thats certain guys. And wwe is death
UltimateHunt - 5/21/2014, 3:51 AM
^^^^Certain? Wtf? I meant John Cena**
Kyos - 5/21/2014, 4:08 AM
Hugh is great! I'm not excited about X-movies anymore, but I really like him.
marvel72 - 5/21/2014, 4:30 AM
john cena vs the wolverine wrestlemania 31.
marvel72 - 5/21/2014, 4:32 AM
i really want wolverine in the avengers,then we would get the fight that would be better than batman vs superman?

WOLVERINE VS THE HULK!
ManDeth - 5/21/2014, 5:07 AM
Enough of the WWE already. Wrasslin is a throwback to the 1800's and early 1900's where people had few entertainment options and looked to fake fighting for a bit of fun.

It is sad that some still watch such insignificant and outdated garbage like the WWE which is fake fights and fake feuds with fake characters. If people like to watch fighting try watching the real thing. Not Vince McMahon's fake fighting freak show.
