While Hugh Jackman is currently getting positive buzz for his work as Jean Valjean in Tom Hooper’s musical adaptation of Les Miserables, he is also looking to get Wolverine back in the good grace of X-Men fans. In collaboration with director James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma), Jackman is set to bring another standalone film for the character after the utterly forgettable X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Speaking with Parade, Jackman revealed a couple tasty details about the film:
You want to get me into trouble, don’t you? [laughs] Okay, the movie takes place after X-Men: The Last Stand. My character is at his lowest. He is supposed to be able to heal himself, but he may encounter someone who has worked out a way to really hurt him. And there is a cameo from one of the past X-Men in it.
Since the movie would take place after X-Men: The Last Stand and the character is at his “lowest” point, it wouldn’t surprising to see Famke Janssen as Jean Grey appear in some kind of flashback. What do you think?
The Wolverine opens July 26, 2013.
