How did Hugh Jackman actually become Wolverine? Marco provides answers to this question in his video, among other things. Hugh Jackman actually wasn’t the first choice for Wolverine, even though it’s hard to imagine any other actor in the role today.

After his first audition, Jackman himself was actually convinced that he wouldn’t see his DC colleagues again. In the video you will find out why he later cast the role and why we have actor Tom Cruise to thank for that.

Hardly any time to get used to the new role

Hugh Jackman was then cast in the role so spontaneously that the actor was still in his self-discovery phase for the role during filming. One reason why he always feared being fired. It’s lucky for the films and fans that this didn’t happen, because X-Men became a huge success – thanks in part to Jackman.

In the video, Marco then talks about Jackman’s personal journey in the DC Universe. How the actor can still embody the role of Wolverine so well at the age of 55, who his role models are for the mutant’s fighting style or how Wolverine went from a “small supporting character from the original to a larger-than-life figurehead of several generations of X-Men”. .
