Hugh Jackman has been Wolverine and he’ll be the only one as far as his die-hard fans are concerned. X-Men completes 20 years today and it would’ve been incompleteness without Hugh Jackman posting anything about it.
In the era of superheroes, it was Hugh Jackman who made them cooler instead of heroic. There was no particular ‘formula’ makers followed to pen Hugh’s Wolverine.
Hugh Jackman took to his Instagram and posted, “So here’s the thing. When the studio asked if I could be in shape to play #wolverine in 3 weeks … I might over-promised. But wouldn’t you have too? Happy Anniversary X-Men universe. #xmen”
Hugh Jackman recently had a conversation with Anne Hathaway for Variety. He talked about his film Bad Education.
He said: “Yeah. I’m taking a pause because I don’t think I’ve told anyone, but I’m going to tell you — I don’t mind telling people — I went up to him just before we started filming. I said, ‘I’ve spent most of my career thinking that my job if I’m No. 1 on the call sheet, is to kind of be like the quarterback. Like, give me the ball, coach. I got this’.”
He also added about the director of Bad Education, Cory Finley: “Because of who Cory was, I could tell who he was as an artist. I made the choice, to be honest with him. I would say to him, ‘I feel really self-conscious today’. Or I’d stop the take and go, ‘This is really bad. Can we just stop for a sec? I just feel nervous’. I would pull him aside and say, ‘I know this is one of the three really important scenes. I just feel that pressure.’ I’ve always felt it. I’ve never said it because I thought I’m (A) a bit embarrassed and (B) that’s not going to help anyone.”
