Hugh Jackman Reveals That Bryan Singer BANNED Comic Books From The Set Of X-MEN

We already know that Bryan Singer failed to pay much attention to the source material during the making of X-Men, X-2 and Superman Returns, but check out what Hugh Jackman had to say to about him BANNING comic books on the set of the first movie after the jump.


ComicBook.com have posted an excerpt from Hugh Jackman's interview with EW about The Wolverine, and the Academy Award nominated actor revealed a very interesting story from back when he was first cast as Logan by Bryan Singer for X-Men. The director apparently banned comic books from the set of the movie as he didn't want the actors to be influenced by them instead of the script for the movie. That explains a lot. Regardless, the cast still managed to find a way around this as the comics secretly found their way around the set ("Through the trailer door would come comics," the actor recalled). It was in fact during the production of this movie that Jackman read Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's Wolverine series that the upcoming solo movie is based on.

On a related note, Singer has now removed the Tweet in which he seemingly made either a dig at Marvel or a simple reference (it depends on how you decide to read into it) to Quicksilver being an Avenger. Popular theories for this include Fox not wanting moviegoers to think that the two versions of the character will be related to one another or that Singer was given a dressing down for the negative backlash which followed his apparent swipe at Joss Whedon's plans for the speedster and his sister, the Scarlet Witch. You can see the original Tweet below.
