Hugh Jackman is featured on this Sunday’s issue of Parade Magazine, and he confirms a few things about THE WOLVERINE, saying “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.”
Rumors previously swirled that Jean Grey actress, Famke Janssen had filmed a cameo for the movie. Will the Phoenix resurface in a flashback, dream or create ties with the upcoming X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST? Or is he hinting at an entirely different cameo? Only time will tell!
Hugh also joked about his ripped abs featured in the film, saying “I keep thinking, “Come on, you spend millions on CGI, can’t you throw a quarter million my way for visual effects so I can eat pizza and drink beer and still look great?” No, I had to do it the hard way. Let me tell you, at 44 it’s not getting easier.”
