Wolverine News

Screen Rant got sent exclusive information from Empire on the anticipated "Wolverine" film.

Here are some snippets.

Hugh Jackman on ramping up the action in upcoming X-Men Prequel "X-Men Origins: Wolverine":

“We ended up doing quite a lot of it. I wanted the fight scenes to be a little more brutal- I want people to wince a bit more.”

Hugh Jackman on drawing inspiration from De Niro:

“I had this image in my head of De Niro in that remake of 'Cape Fear', You were terrified of that character from the moment he took his shirt off…; you knew he was this coiled spring that would rip your head off, no matter how nonchalant he acted. That’s who Wolverine is.”

"Wolverine" co-star Liev Schneiber [Sabretooth in the movie] on Jackman’s improved physique:

“Hugh’s a monster right now!.”

"Wolverine" director Gavin Hood dismisses rumors of a troubled production:

“If nobody were talking about us, we’d be in trouble… On every film, you experience the joy and the strain of collaborative work.”

This (and much more) will all be in Empire magazine, hitting stands in January.
In other news, Coming Soon confirmed that an official "Wolverine" trailer will be shown on Dec. 12, 2008, showing in front of "The Day the Earth Stood Still."

And in an interview, Hugh Jackman explained his thoughts on possibly bringing back "Wolverine" for a sequel solo film.
