The interpreter lost the opportunity to give life to the mutant, but luck smiled on him and he became a star

At this point, more than two decades later, it is difficult to imagine a world in which Hugh Jackman is not Wolverine, but that was the initial plan. The actor, who after seven years returns to give life to the mutant in Deadpool and Wolverinewas not originally chosen for the role.

“The first time Hugh Jackman auditioned, he didn’t sign”revealed in 2022 the screenwriter of X Men (2000) David Hayter, who was involved in the casting process. “He was great, but he was the nicest guy in the world and he was very tall and very handsome, so we didn’t see him as Wolverine”.

Precisely these were the main complaints from fans of Marvel’s mutants when Jackman’s signing was announced. Over time, however, the actor became everyone’s favorite.

‘Deadpool and Wolverine’ is going to take a weight off your shoulders: You don’t need to watch 24 years of Marvel to understand it

X Men, the first film in the saga about Marvel mutants, was released in 2000 and Bryan Singer was behind the cameras. The one chosen to give life to Wolverine was Dougray Scott, but an accident cut short the plans. “Tom Rothman, the head of Fox, said he was going to be Dougray Scott, so we signed him while he was doing Mission Impossible 2 and Tom Cruise He kept calling us saying: ‘We need you a little more” Hayter recalled.

As he added:

When we were going to shoot the movie, we hadn’t seen Wolverine or tried on the suits, so we sent designer Louise Mingenbach to Australia to do it and it turned out that she had been in a motorcycle accident while filming ‘Mission: Impossible 2’ and had lost about 150 pounds. It was not going to work

So, with this scenario, the studio opted for Jackman. What initially seemed like a wrong decision turned out to be a success. Jackman has given life to the character in the original trilogy of mutants, made up of the films X Men (2000), X-Men 2 (2003) and X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). Also in a solo trilogy about his character X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), Wolverine immortal (2013) and logan (2017). Lastly, she appeared in the prequel saga with a cameo in X Men First generation (2011), a starring role in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) and a brief return in X-Men: Apocalypse (2016).

The actor said goodbye to the character after logan, considered one of the best superhero movies of all time. After seven years, he returns as the mutant in Deadpool and Wolverine. The film arrives in Spanish cinemas on July 25. Ryan Reynolds steps back into the role of the Merc with a Mouth and Shawn Levy steps behind the cameras. Matthew McFadyen and Emma Corrin make their debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in this film. On these lines don’t miss the trailer.
