Hugh Jackman talks ‘the ultimate Wolverine’

Exclusive: “This is *the* story…”

The Wolverine heads up the brand-new issue 209 of Total Film magazine, which features a huge X-Men special.

You can read the full feature - and gets tons of behind the scenes X-access - inside the issue, which is available for just £1.99 on iPad.

But for now, here’s a snippet of what Hugh Jackman had to tell us about ‘the ultimate Wolverine’ when we chatted to him on set.

“This is the story,” he told us, referring to the reverence given to Claremont and Miller’s source material. “It’s probably what I like to call ‘the ultimate Wolverine’ - not an origin story, which we’ve done, but who he is.

“You see him at his most vulnerable in this movie - physically and emotionally. And faced with not only his lowest point, but also this choice of embracing who he is or not.”

The Wolverine opens in the UK on 25 July 2013.

For much more from Jackman and director James Mangold, pick up issue 209 of Total Film magazine, which is out now!
