Hugh Jackman Defends Wolverine and Talks The Japan Theme Sequel!

Hugh "Wolverine" Jackman stands up to Katie Couric when she puts her foot in her mouth by revealing that she is not the targeted demographic.

"Why would you miss [out on] it?" Hugh argued. "A little bit of nudity, I get all of my rage issues out... any rage issues I have are gone! Yeah, you do [have fun]. I wouldn't make them otherwise."

Well, it's got to be about something. Might as well be about fun.

Hugh is still taken back by the age range of Wolverine loyalists out there:

"It still amazes me that people come up to me from all over the place, all different types of people and all different types of demographics," he said. "It's always strange to me though when people say, 'Oh, my son loves it!' And I go, 'How old is your son?' And they go, 'Three!' I'm slicing people's heads off here!"

On Japan being the next shooting location for the Wolverine sequel:

"The whole time from when I began, the one story line that I went and said, 'That's a movie!' while I was reading the comic books, was this whole saga in Japan," he described. "It's really beautiful, different, and fantastic. I thought, 'That's a movie.' Now, we've done four movies and we haven't done it yet, so I'm working on that script now. If that comes up to being what I thought it might be, I'll do that."

Now Hugh understands he can not play Wolverine for the rest of his life. So how many more Wolverine movies will hit theaters you ask?

"I always say, 'oh, I'm never doing another one,' until I see the script. It has to be something. But in the superhero world, those kind of movies, 'Wolverine' is by far the most interesting," he confessed. "So I'll do eleven more and that's it!"

Many thanks to MTV for providing the above video.
