Why they gotta make Wolverine an emo pussy? That’s what Hugh Jackman intimates in an interview with MTV where he discusses X-Men Origins: Wolverine’s tone, which he likens to Batman Begins. You can imagine how happy that makes me.
“We are dealing with a character who is probably one of the darker comic book characters ever created,” Jackman said. “The movie has a lot of fun elements, but there are layers of pain and darkness to this character.”
Well, yes and no. The thing I always liked about Wolverine is how he carried the pain, never showing it. Jackman’s making it sound like he’s going to be doing the action movie version of stepping to the edge of the stage and singing a sad song.
He also reveals a shocking truth to fans: there could be more films in the Wolverine series! “There are two conditions for me doing any more: One is will anybody want to see it, and the second is: Will I still have the passion for it?” he explained. “I really wanted to do this spin-off movie, because I felt we hadn’t truly found who this character was… Right now I feel like I could do another ten or eleven.”
