Hugh Jackman came out of nowhere to land the role of a lifetime in X-Men, and it was a wonderful star is born moment when he exploded on the screen. No one in America had heard of him before, but there was no doubt he was the right person to play Wolverine. (The character was originally going to be played by Dougray Scott, the villain in Mission: Impossible 2, but he had to back out when that shoot went way over schedule.)
We just reported here on TGD about Ant-Man moving into the July 17, 2015 release that’s been vacated by Batman Vs Superman. As you probably know by now, the release date of B V S has been pushed back nearly a year, and the only other competition that day is a reboot of Peter Pan.
As Robert Downey Jr’s renegotiations for the next two Avengers films have proved, it’s very important to have your stars signed up for future superhero movies well in advance. In fact, when an actor is picked to play a superhero these days, he or she usually has to sign on for at least three movies, which is a good thing in this day and age, because you’ll know you’ll be employed for years.
Some time back, we reported on TGD that the teaser posters for Wolverine were getting stolen all over Los Angeles, and it does indeed have a very arresting image, done in Japanese sumi ink style, because the story takes place in the far east.

A long time ago when John Travolta’s popularity was at its peak in the 70’s, Paramount edited out seven minutes from Saturday Night Fever so it could play on a double bill with the PG rated Grease.
The Wolverine will be a foreign-language, non-origin, historical, detective noir, dramatic superhero film.
While out promoting Real Steel this weekend, Hugh Jackman described how the plot of The Wolverine will differ from previous X-Men films.
In the near future of Real Steel, human boxing has lost its appeal, and in its place has risen an industry of new warriors, those who build, train, and control humanoid robot boxers for the ring.
Dreamworks recently released a featurette for their new film Real Steel. In this short video, star Hugh Jackman and Director Shawn Levy explain the background of the robot boxing movement featured in the tale.
When the first X-Men movie was making a mad-dash rush to the finish line, everything was so top secret, trying to get any advance word on anything was impossible.
