AceShowbiz - After revealing on the possibility of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" going to Japan for a sequel, Hugh Jackman has opened up more on the potential sequel. Confessing that he has "been talking to writers" in a chat with MTV News, the "Australia" actor went on sharing what story he has in mind for the possible project.
"I love the idea of this kind of anarchic character, the outsider, being in this world - I can see it aesthetically, too - full of honor and tradition and customs and someone who's really anti-all of that, and trying to negotiate his way," the 40-year-old dished. "The idea of the samurai, too - and the tradition there."
The vampire hunter depicter in "Van Helsing" furthermore continued explaining, "It's really great. In the comic book he gets his ass kicked by a couple of samurai - not even mutants. He's shocked by that at first." Aside from the samurai fights plot, he also mentioned one of Wolverine's lost loves. "There's also a great, very intricate story there with Mariko," he said. "And so many cool ways we could go."
"X-Men Origins: Wolverine" itself is a prequel to the "X-Men" trilogy. It chronicles the violent and romantic early life of the titular character, including his participation on the Weapon X program and his complex relationship with Victor Creed. Developed under the direction of "Rendition" helmer Gavin Hood, it has Hugh Jackman returning as the metal-clawed mutant.
The action fantasy movie will also see among others Liev Schreiber and Ryan Reynolds taking the roles of Sabretooth and Deadpool respectively. It will be opened in U.S. theaters this coming Friday, May 1.
