Even if Hugh Jackman still has James Mangold’s, “The Wolverine“, coming out in 2013, which I plan to see, he’s not yet, done with the character. Jackman is currently in negotiations, to return as the Wolverine once again in Singer’s, “X-Men: Days of Future Past” the sequel to “X-Men: First Class”. Jackman has played the Wolverine character too much. From the original X-Men trilogy to the “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” film.
How much longer is Jackman planning to keep playing this character? The man is 44 years old now, and I can see him stopping somewhere at 55 – 60. He is talented and I can’t see no one else playing the Wolverine but, Jackman.
The Wolverine has always been my favorite Marvel character. He must love this character too much and you can tell. Will Jackman’s appearance in “Days of Future Past” will be a big one? I don’t think so, sounds like it maybe a cameo appearance to me but we’ll wait and see. “Days of Future Past” is getting even more interesting. I thought “X-Men: First Class” was great, hopefully this film will be even better, now that Singer is back at the helm.
Edit to add: I forgot, Hugh Jackman did have a cameo in “X-Men: First Class” too, but he wasn’t quite the Wolverine yet…
First Darren Aronofsky drops out of the “Robocop” reboot, next he drops out of the “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” sequel. Him and Hugh Jackman seemed very excited and pumped for the project, but Darren no longer wants to do it. Why? Because he thinks filming the movie would keep him out of the USA for too long. He doesn’t want to be away from his family for a long time.
For your information, “Wolverine 2” will be filming in Japan, where the movie will be taken place.

That really is too bad. I was really looking forward to Darren’s take on Wolverine too. The film will suck who ever takes over now. Darren would have made it a great movie too. Sad. 😦
Director, Darren Aronofsky ordered Huck Jackman, that he needs to add 25 lbs of muscle, for the next, “Wolverine” film, before they start filming in the Spring. Jackman admits that is going to be very difficult for him to do. He couldn’t figure out how he would do it. So what does he do to find out how? He calls up Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to get fitness advice from. Dwayne gained 25 lbs. of muscle quickly for his role of his new movie, “Faster”. The secret is build muscle for six pound a week, 6,000 calories a day. That means a lot of eating and a lot of hard work in the gym.

I know some people are going to say that this is impossible to do. No one could add 25 lbs of muscle in that quick period of time, but believe it or not, it can be done successfully. How can it be done? Well, I think Hugh Jackman is gonna do a lot of work. Do a lot of brutal training. That means, lots of heavy lifting. Doing lots of cardio. Eating a lot of protein and calories. Maybe supplements too if he plans on doing that. I’m sure Hugh Jackman will hire personal trainers to help him reach that goal.
Jackman is a very built guy, but looks like Aronofsky, wants him to be even more jacked for this role. Sounds like this is going to be a violent action movie. More violent than the last Wolverine movie.
It is possible to gain lbs. of muscle in a quick period of time…because I did it myself. Maybe not 25lbs in one whole year, but I know I gained a 8-10 lbs of muscle quickly. When I first got into bodybuilding, I weighed about 140 lbs. Now I’m 150 lbs, exact. I’m not fat ’cause I eat good and do a lot of cardio, so I know I’m gaining muscle big time. People assume it takes years to build a good physique but if you do it right, you can get some good muscle in a year.
I’m sure Jackman would do this with no problem at all!
I’ve had mixed feelings on the upcoming new “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” movie, a spin off movie from the X-Men series where Wolverine gets his own movie, played by Hugh Jackman.
Anyhow, this film comes out May 1st, just a few months after the Oscars in Feb. Now you see exactly why the Oscars wanted Jackman as the host. 🙂
The movie “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” looks pretty fuckin’ sweet. I absolutely loved the trailer!!! The movie looks promising. I’ve had worries that the film would suck, but after seeing the trailer here, I love what I see here so far. I’ll definitely see this in May too.
I love Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and I love the X-Men series. So this film here is going to be great with just Wolverine alone and not the other X-Men characters.
“X-Men Origins: Wolverine” looks to me it’s the beginning of the character of how he first turned into a mutant.
Enjoy it here:
1. “The Dark Knight” will be huge for the Oscars, since Hugh Jackman has experience playing a comic book superhero character, he played Wolverine in the X-Men trilogy and he is also starring in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, a film where Wolverine gets his own movie. The Academy figures this will help hype up “The Dark Knight” for the Oscars if Jackman hosted the show.
2. Hugh Jackman does have award hosting experience, he hosted the Tony Awards a couple of times, an award show for theatre. He hosted the Tony awards around the time when Jackman did the play “The Boy From Oz”.
3. Other than a film actor, Hugh Jackman is a theatre actor as well. He goes back and forth from theatre to films. Jackman has done musicals on stage and he can sing, I imagine the Ocars hired him for the host so he can do a singing segment to open the Oscars and to tell some jokes as well. Will he do X-Men the musical? LOL!!!
