“Wolverine” Is Coming!

wolverine–On May 1st,  X-Men Origins: Wolverine will open in the U.S., with Hugh Jackman in the title role.  Because of his furry nature, Wolverine is a fave of mine, and Jackman portrayed him well in the previous three X-Men movies.

The film is a prequel that will be set roughly 20 years before the initial X-Men flick, and will focus on Wolverine’s violent and rather dark past; this will include his involvement with Sabretooth and the Weapon X program.  Jackman, who felt that Wolverine had kind of mellowed in his last outing, wanted to portray the character as we first met him in Wolverine’s cage match in the initial X-Men flick.  To prepare for the role, Jackman underwent a  weight training and cardio program, and engaged in high-intensity work- outs in character, making noises while exercising!

Hugh Jackman also gave a rousing performance as vampire and supernatural creature hunter Gabriel Van Helsing in the film Van Helsing. –His upcoming flick should be a hoot!

    I’m surprised no one’s written a fanfiction crossover where Logan finally remembers his past _as_ Gabriel Van Helsing: American monster-hunter from Holland, Michigan (the Wolverine State).

      Humor aside, I loved Jackman’s portrayal of a vigorous, kinetic Van Helsing, and ample room was left for a sequel. Dracula himself reminded Van Helsing that they had once been contemporaries, that Van Helsing had lived a number of lives, and had once been a Roman soldier! Van Helsing’s memory of such, however, was incomplete and fragmentary.–Sequel, please!

    That’s why (being serious, now) I am definitely going to see the Wolverine origin story when it comes out on May Day.*

    *Which, by sheer coincidence, is what most of Wolverine’s enemies wind up yelling at the end of a fight with him! ;-D
