Hugh Jackman Pumped For Aronofsky's Wolverine

‘The planets are finally aligned to make a great movie’

Hugh Jackman is starting to make the rounds talking about how excited he is for The Wolverine and had a bit of a sit down with the folks at Hero Complex to talk about it. The actor has long called the role of Logan as the one that truly put him on the map and gave him the career that he has so he's wanted to continue with it and make it something special, though obviously fans and critics alike didn't care much for what went on with X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The Fox having successfully wooed Darren Aronofsky to the project and Jackman enthused to be working with him again after The Fountain, he's coming right out and say ‘The planets are finally aligned to make a great movie.’

Jackman talks about his original casting and how he was devouring the comics to get a feel for the character after getting the role and the way he came across the Japan storyline that was the real cementing of the character for many long time comics fans and his belief that it was the story that needed to be told, though there was the feeling that they had to do the origin story first. And while knowing that a lot of people didn't care for that particular flick, he's still standing behind it but knows he has to get out in front of it a bit by saying, "Straight off, it’s not a sequel, it’s a stand-alone, and I think we’re going to make one that people will describe as the best of the bunch."

Click on through to get more of his thoughts on the combination team of writer Christopher McQuarrie and Aronofsky as well as what he's going to have to do with the diet that's required to get ready for the role here.

Jackman rocks, I only see good things for Him in this movie.  He plays a charcter that is in a comic book, i think that is pretty impressive.  You can't go talk to a super hero to learn about the character.  Ican't wait, i liked the last Wolverine move, critics who coments on them?

Wolverine sucked b@lls !!!!! It didnt even come close his origins except for adimantium. Too many flaws to point out...

I'm with you Loco, my fave Wolverine story and his first solo outing in his own mini if memory serves. This story put him on the map outside of the X-Men. Taking place in Japan and away from the X-Men will help it stand out as a stand alone story, no need to worry about any continuitry issues for the most part.
