“Q & A With Hugh Jackman and James Mangold for The Wolverine
James Mangold: This film situates itself after the three X-Men movies that exist and finds Logan at a point when the X-Men are gone, Jean Grey is gone, a lot of the ties he had to the world are gone. It was very important to me, I wanted to place this movie in a story where Hugh and I could allow it to create its own world. Not having to answer to another movie or hand-off to another movie, that we could kind of do what we wanted to do and take him where we were going to take him. I also think it’s a really interesting place to find Logan, which is at this moment when almost every intimate connection he’s had to the world is destroyed or broken.
Hugh Jackman: He’s definitely at his lowest point at the beginning of this movie. You’ll see him more vulnerable than you’ve ever seen him before. So it’s a fantastic place to start and having Jim there has been amazing. We worked together before on Kate & Leopold, but he pushes me, probably like no one else does. It’s been good.
Mangold: We have a lot of fun. For me, making a lot of dramas…on one side it’s a different sort of challenge, and on the other, it’s not a challenge at all, meaning that my goal is to try and bring the realism and acting you might find in a straight drama with the intentions and conflict, where it doesn’t feel tongue-in-cheek, but rather committed and real.
Q: How did you grow that awesome facial hair?
Jackman: [Laughs] I’m not sure I’m proud of it. It’s something I inherited from my father; luckily not the back hair as well. This is part of my heritage, that’s one thing I can do relatively easily. In fact, in my sleep I can do it. [Laughs]
Q: If you could have any mutant power, which one would you pick?
Jackman: Definitely teleporting for me. Obviously, the amount we travel around, the ability to be *bang* anywhere would be fantastic.
Mangold: Mind-control, some kind of getting in peoples’ minds. As a director…
Jackman: You’ve already got that! [Laughs]
Mangold: Just knowing what people are thinking, that would be scary…”
