Wolverine is getting all the attention–and all the action–these days. 20th Century Fox has followed his story and has featured his character prominently in most of the X-Men movies. He already got his own spin-off movie with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and he’s got another one slated for a 2013 release with The Wolverine.
That’s probably why Hugh Jackman is in no hurry to shave off his signature sideburns. He recently sat down with director James Mangold for a live chat, and the duo talked extensively about The Wolverine and where they were going with it. You can view the whole live chat in its entirety in the video above, but it’s extremely long, so you’ve been warned.
Here are a couple of interesting things to note from the live chat: there’s going to be more action (at least, according to Jackman), the story arc is going to be a really interesting one (since Jackman’s always wanted to cover this in the franchise), and Wolverine’s true power lies in his rage (or so, they say.)
At the end of the chat, a teaser poster for The Wolverine was released, and it looks pretty bad-ass. Sort of what you’d expect for the movie. You can check it out in the gallery below.
The Wolverine hits theaters on July 24th, 2013.
