"The Wolverine" is in theaters now.
Hugh Jackman's wife originally told him not to take the role of Wolverine. The lesson here: wives are always wrong.
In case you're wondering: actual wolverines do not have sideburns. But they DO have retractable metal alloy-laced bone claws implanted into their bodies by the Weapon X initiative.
This is the fifth time Hugh Jackman has starred as Wolverine, unless you count his awesome cameo in "X-Men: First Class".
This one picks up after "X-Men: The Last Stand". Logan's in Japan, to say goodbye to a friend he saved in World War Two. But the guy offers him a chance to finally be MORTAL . . . by taking away his ability to heal.
The Silver Samurai is the villain, and Wolverine has to take on an army of ninjas . . . which has to suck when you don't have your healing power any more.
Hugh says, quote, "We want people who've never seen an 'X-Men' movie to not be intimidated to go. That's one of the reasons why it's called 'The Wolverine' and not 'Wolverine 5' . . . or whatever it is."
And Famke Janssen returns as Jean Grey, in Logan's nightmares.
Let's examine Hugh Jackman's character with the Top Fascinating Facts About Wolverine.
He can shish kabob without skewers.
He's very predictable at Rock, Paper, Scissors.
Thanks to his temper problems, he's known as the Alec Baldwin of the X-Men.
He personally shaves Professor X's head.
He's constantly competing with Batman for the title of "Most Growly Superhero."
In order to wear his hair like that, he has to pay royalties to A Flock of Seagulls.
He's able to heal himself from everything, except the painful sting of the reviews from the last movie.
We end today’s blog with a parody of MILEY CYRUS'S video for "We Can't Stop" where they took out all the music and added SOUND EFFECTS instead. And somehow, it's even weirder than the actual video.
