Wish I had little bit of Logan's healing powers: Hugh Jackman

Posted March 03, 2017

"He walked out into the audition and just nailed it and they put him on a plane to Vancouver within 24 hours to start shooting X-Men", Claremont said about Jackman. Like, I love playing it, but I love it more than ever.

To this, Hugh replied, "I think I'll be fine with it. It may be hard on me to watch whoever plays it next, I don't know, but - I don't know, when you see this movie, the successor may already be there, right?" He said that he would teleport himself to India for Shah Rukh Khan and Sachin Tendulkar. I told him I am in.

That wasn't the case with "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" (2009), Jackman's first solo Wolverine movie, which botched the adaptation of Wolverine's secret origin as a young, sickly and wealthy 19th century Canadian boy named James Howlett who later would mutate into an indestructible force. "It's the first time in 17 years where I haven't known there was something on the horizon, and creatively, that's probably a good thing".

At the very least Wolverine (Logan to his friends) is back for one more slash-fest, though one wonders how much longer an ageing Hugh Jackman can keep lashing out in anger?

He added: "With this film, "Logan", we can delve deeper into this humanity". Stan Lee created the X-Men, but Chris Claremont helped make them into the characters we know today. Veering away from the standard female superhero trope, she is the most ruthless, savage, and risky character in the film.

But even critics would agree that "Logan" is a dramatic movie, as it has shown more depth for the iconic character.

Spending his nights driving a limo around the American Southwest and his days in Mexico caring for a decrepit Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart), Logan is once again pulled into a conflict he'd rather avoid when he becomes the grudging protector of a feral little girl (Dafne Keen) with abilities remarkably similar to his own. It's arguable X-23 is the best part of "Logan", showing Jackman's devotion to telling the best Wolverine story he could without demanding all the glory.
