If Hugh Jackman's recent chatter about The Wolverine promises one thing, it's that the filmmaking team won't make the same mistakes that blighted X-Men Origins: Wolverine .
We all thought that one was a bit masculine, right?
“I think we've got the chance to nail the character this time, to do the hole-in-one. We haven't managed that yet. On the last movie we complicated it with too many other characters. And there'll be more women this time, which is good. The last one was so masculine!” Jackman told The Guardian .
Oooooo-K. Please tell us less masculine doesn't mean less action? If this thing turns into some kinda weepy-eyed, touchy-feely, 'What's wrong with Wolvie?'-type flick you can count us out now.
“The new film will go more into the character. I don't think we've ever seen his rage expressed properly. We're letting go with this one of the whole 'Who am I? Where did I come from? Oh no, I've lost my memory' thing. I feel like that's sent us all to sleep. 'Yeah, whatever pal. We're bored! Fine, you were a sushi chef, whatever it was, can we just get on with the story now?'" Jackman added.
Sounds like we're back on track. But watch out Wolverine, we're jacking into Cerebro to track the movements of this one very closely.
