Jackman on Wolvie

Hugh Jackman, who is probably one of the greatest entertainer on the planet was talking to MTV about WOLVERINE, recently:

"It feels different... We are dealing with a character who is probably one of the darker comic book characters ever created... The movie has a lot of fun elements, but there are layers of pain and darkness to this character... Tonally, I would put it more in the ‘Batman Begins’ sort of realm... That’s sort of where we’re headed.”

“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? I really wanted to do this spin-off movie, because I felt we hadn’t truly found who this character was... Right now [though] I feel like I could do another ten or eleven.”

See, this is the way to make a good X-MEN movie. You get a solid director like Gavin Hood (RENDITION) and you make that thing nice and dark. You don't mess around and get a commercial director like... well shit, it would be crass of me to name names, so I won't. But definitely not one that rhymes with 'Schmett Schmatner'. All of those guys blow.
Extra Tidbit: Still, X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE? Truly, truly heinous title, guys.
