wolverine header2 Hugh Jackman Talks Wolverine 2 & Sequels

Hugh Jackman, the man made famous for bringing one of the most popular superheroes to life in the X-Men movies, sat down to talk with Katie Couric at CBS News where they spoke about the character of Wolverine and the movies.

Funny enough, the interview started with Couric kindly dropping the bomb that she’s not exactly a fan which set off a bunch of laughs before they continued to touch on the future of the character and movies.

Hugh reveals that he’s not in it for the money, he doesn’t need that. He’s there because he loves Wolverine, he loves playing the character, and its a ton of fun for him. Check out the interview after the jump.

As the video plays beside Jackman and Couric in the background, Hugh laughingly questions how she couldn’t like it (the scenes shown were of him busting out of the Weapon X facility naked.)

“Why would you miss out on it?” he argued. “A little bit of nudity, I get all of my rage issues out… any rage issues I have are gone! Yeah, you do have fun. I wouldn’t make them otherwise.”

Here’s the video interview courtesy of CBS:

“The whole time from when I began, the one story line that I went and said, ‘That’s a movie!’ while I was reading the comic books, was this whole saga in Japan… It’s really beautiful, different and fantastic. I thought, ‘That’s a movie.’ Now, we’ve done four movies and we haven’t done it yet, so I’m working on that script now. If that comes up to being what I thought it might be, I’ll do that.”

“I always say, ‘oh, I’m never doing another one,’ until I see the script. It has to be something. But in the superhero world, those kind of movies, ‘Wolverine’ is by far the most interesting… So I’ll do eleven more and that’s it!”

Eleven more? That would be a burden on his body but with possible cameos in the growing number of X-Men spin-off movies and a potential X-Men 4, not to mention the likelihood of more than one Wolverine sequel, we will see a lot more of Wolverine in the future.

I’m a fan of Hugh Jackman and I love his passion. It’s unfortunate that they’ve not done better with his character in his solo spin-off but that’s not stopping me from wanting to see Wolverine’s adventures in Japan, a movie they’re currently promising “will stay very close to the source material.”

Are you excited for more Wolverine down the road and what would you like to see from the character and future X-Men movies?

Wolverine 2 is currently in development and we’ll let you know more as we hear it.

  1. Didn’t they promise the same thing for the last movie?

  2. You know what I find totally unfair? It is that they not only did not stick closely to the source material, but they also did not stick closely to the rating. Wolverine is possibly one of marvel’s most bloodiest and violent character, so why not show a bit of blood spur out from the wounds he inflicts, the animation showed it. It just adds impact to wolverine’s bad-ass and dark persona.

    When I watched wolverine, I felt like I was watching a kid’s movie-kind of sucked. Now I am not a fan of bloodly violence, but wolverine, being badass with out bloody violence is not wolverine at all-but hugh does a fantastic job.

    Now the wolverine in japan is seriously bloody-and japan certainly loves its blody violence.

    I guess I just like wolverine comics too much.

  3. I love the whole Japan story-line with Wolverine and I believe it lends itself best for converting in to a movie so I am hopeful.

    The solo movie with Wolvie was ok. I guess I had the same problem with it as everybody else… The plot, Gambit’s non-accent, the rating, etc. I never found anything to complain about with the actors though. Especially not Wolverine and Sabretooth.

    As an end note… considering the problem they’ve had with Storm’s hair in all X-men movies… they could try the mohawk. That was always my favourite.

  4. IREALLY hope its the Japan story .
    It sounds like it probably will be, but Hughs latest comments are indicating the story is still in the development stages ,
    and he is not going to make a firm committment until he gets a look at the final story.

  5. Make more..why not..I hope eventually that almost all of the Marvel & DC characters see the light of day on celluloid!! Great time for fans of the genre that’s for sure..

  6. Iagree with the no blood issue. When they flashed back to Wolvie busting out of the tank(X-men 3?) He had blood all over him. Not even a drop of blood in wolvie origins. Come on!!!

  7. I wish they wouldn’t make any more after that first abomination.

  8. Hopefully he makes the writers follow the comics closely because the hand claws were the worst idea ever from origins.

  9. “Is your bar of soap leaving scum your skin”

    No offense but American Adverts are really cheesy !

    Didn’t see Origins so i can’t comment on how good or how bad it was.

  10. olu,

    couldn’t agree more

  11. about the soap that is :)

  12. Do it right and go bloodier, if they make it for kids it’ll just be average, but give it an R rating and watch it fly.

  13. Love xmen, love wolverine, ABSOLUTELY LOVE the japan story, love hugh jackman, bring on as many wolverines as he is willing to do. Sure the first one wasnt great, but next to the other blockbusters of the year (Read: Transformers2) it was oscar winning material.

  14. I would rather sit through Transformers 2 again than Wolverine ANYDAY.

  15. No movie is like the book!!!
    It’s a fact of life.
    I thought X-Men Origins: Wolverine was good and entertaining. It was missing a few things but I still thought it was awesome. I wish it could have been Rated R so more blood and violence could be in it haha
    Hugh Jackman is amazing and i would love it if he made more X-men/Wolverine movies!!! hahah just to see that beautiful body haha
    No really i think Wolverine is the best superhero person….or anti-hero guy? I don’t know what he is. A tragice hero….yes?

  16. Keep-em honest Hugh it’s on your shoulders now…
