Hugh Jackman on the ‘Avengers’ & ‘Wolverine 3’

While doing press for his upcoming movie ‘Chappie’, Hugh Jackman talked about the possibility of Wolverine appearing in the ‘Avengers’ movies, and ‘Wolverine 3’.

After the news that Spider-Man will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe films under Disney, a lot of talk has turned toward the possibility of Fox allowing its X-Men properties appear in this films as well. Hugh Jackman recently spoke with MTV, telling them that he hopes that one day Wolverine appears in these movies.

“I like to think there’s that possibility for all of it, and I would even like to think more that it doesn’t happen out of necessity. When someone’s run it into the ground or something. I optimistically love the idea of, “What the hell, Batman versus Iron Man versus Wolverine!” Let’s just chuck ’em in. We’ll see what happens, but maybe as these things go on more and more they’ll want to and need to do all that stuff. I’m optimistic, I’d think it’d be great, but hey, it’s not my billions of dollars behind this promise. [laughs] It’s easy for us to speculate, “Why did they do that?!”

He also talked about the validity of Patrick Stewart’s claim that he also be in the upcoming ‘Wolverine 3’ film and what he thinks about the relationship between Wolverine and Professor Xavier.

“I’m not going to deny that he’s not…Let’s just say, I’d be thrilled if he was part of it because I think that relationship is key. It’s one of the keys. It was the key at the beginning and I think there’s a long way to go.”

Jackman also spoke about where the script for the movie is at this time and how much of the movie is inspired by a specific comic.

“It does draw on some comic book stuff. There are some things, but in typical fashion, sort of one main one with a few bits here and there and then opening it up. Jim [James Mangold] and I, we’ve been talking about it, he has a treatment. But I mean, we’re a way out from it so we’re in really good shape with it. I’m really, really excited about it.”

Sophie Turner Talks Jean Grey & ‘X-Men’

Sophie Turner is speaking out for the first time since she was cast at Jean Grey in the upcoming superhero movie, ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’. Last month, director Bryan Singer announced that Sophie Turner  was cast as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, and Alexandra Shipp as Storm.

While doing press for Season 5 of ‘Game of Thrones’, Sophie Turner revealed that she thinks she got the role because of her character on the show Sansa.

“I think maybe one of the reasons that they chose me for [Jean] is because they saw the dark side of Sansa. Maybe they’re thinking, ‘Oh, Phoenix, Jean Grey.’ I definitely see a lot of parallels in there. “[Jean] struggles with her power… and not being accepted in the human world. I think in terms of [Game of Thrones], that’s kind of the way Sansa felt in that she really wanted to be a normal princess/queen and live a normal life — and she doesn’t, because of all this havoc happens. I think Jean, in a way, feels that.”

She also spoke about Famke Janssen’s Jean Grey and how she plans to put her own spin on the character.

“I think Famke played Jean incredibly well, but also, I’m playing a younger version of her. I want to emulate Famke in a sense, because she has to seem like the Jean in the first two movies, but I’m also going to put my own twist on her. I think I’m also going to take inspiration from the comics. I don’t know, we’ll see.”

Sophie Turner will join cast members Jennifer Lawrence James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Channing Tatum, Oscar Isaac, and newly announced reprisal of Magneto by Ian McKellen when production begins in April.

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ comes to theaters on May 27, 2016 and stars Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Oscar Isaac, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Channing Tatum, Tye Sheridan and Ian McKellen. The film is directed by Bryan Singer.
