Hugh Jackman confirms that Aronofsky will be directing Wolverine 2

It's all happening.

Vulture sat down with Hugh Jackman last night and got some details about WOLVERINE 2. Jackman started in by talking about how he's got to bulk up, "Expect to see four chicken breasts and a whole pile of steamed broccoli on my plate. I'm starting; I’m having my six meals a day."

He says that with Darren Aronofsky directing this won't be a "usual" X-MEN movie. Wait...yep. He just confirmed Aronofsky. Bonus. Anyway to continue his comment, "This is, hopefully for me, going to be out of the box. It’s going to be the best one, I hope. Well, I would say that, but I really do feel that, and I feel this is going to be very different." I think we all feel that way.

Jackman went on to talk about how Aronofsky's darker directing style will certainly be reflected in the film, "This is Wolverine. This is not Popeye. He’s kind of dark. But, you know, this is a change of pace. Chris McQuarrie, who wrote The Usual Suspects, has written the script, so that’ll give you a good clue. [Aronofsky’s] going to make it fantastic. There’s going to be some meat on the bones. There will be something to think about as you leave the theater, for sure.”

Damn this is exciting!

REAL STEEL got brought up as well. He had some small problems with the robots, "There were a few little mishaps, but mainly just me being clumsy and hitting them and knocking things over. I had to pretend like I knew exactly how to run these things and put my hands in the back and figure them out, and, of course, I was pathetic."
