Hugh Jackman discusses “The Wolverine” trailer

March 28, 2013

While chatting with MTV, Hugh Jackman discussed the various elements from yesterday’s trailer for The Wolverine. He talks about the exciting bullet train sequence, the character “Viper”, and Jean Grey’s “presence” in the film. Below is what Jackman had to say:

On Viper:

“Viper is a badass, for someone who plays Wolverine, who is pretty badass. … She’s not your girl next door. You’re going to end up kind of loving every minute she has on screen.”

On the Bullet Train Sequence:
“It is insane. It was insane to shoot it. It was, again, one of those brilliant ideas. One of the most emblematic things about Japan is the bullet train. I can’t go on the bullet train without any incident. It was hairy, shooting that stuff. To re-create what that is like, the kind of winds at 300 miles per hour, let me just say, looking back at some of the footage, I thought, ‘It’s time for a facelift.’ ”

On Jean Grey:
“There’s no doubt that the most important relationship in his life is — we’ve seen through the movies — is his relationship with Jean Grey. Yes, we saw her die at the end of ‘X-Men: The Last Stand,’ but in this movie, she has a presence, which I think is vital to the movie, particularly for him confronting the most difficult thing within himself.”
