Men: Chris Claremont Wanted Bob Hoskins To Play Wolverine


With the latest X-film, Logan, it's sad to see Jackman go; as this is, allegedly, the last time he'll don the adamantium skeleton; and what a big disappointment his swan song has turned out to be.

The film also stars Merchant, Richard E. Grant and 11-year-old Dafne Keen, who plays the role of Jackman's daughter and young mutant X 23. I've loved the character since his first one-panel appearance in Incredible Hulk #180, way back in 1974. Yes, we become sad and regret in life but nothing to the degree that owns this man (his character in the film).

Windows 10 will let you ban non-Store apps
There just weren't enough ARM-based software to complement the virtually non-existent apps on the Windows app store back then. Technically, there is no reason why it can't run traditional desktop apps, except for the fact that Microsoft says so.

And, of course, it wouldn't be an X-Men movie without loads of subtext about discrimination, racial superiority, and eugenics, but Logan is smart enough to let those themes exist as background elements in a history that is only alluded to rather than made the central focus. "I was anxious it was getting limited for me, and directors I wanted to work with were not so interested" in hiring him for non-superhero acting roles, Jackman says, though his fears were quelled when Woody Allen and Darren Aronofsky approached him - for Scoop and The Fountain respectively - and not the other way around.

Set in the near future, the film follows a tired Logan (Jackman) as he cares for an ailing Professor X (Sir Patrick Stewart) in a hideout on the Mexican border. I always felt that there was a deeper story about this character. This one line from Hugh has left us stumped and we have started imagining SRK as Wolverine already. If a requirement for playing Wolverine is sick dance moves, then Khan's got the part. (This feels a little pointed, doesn't it?) Like Logan she also has retractable blades, and even a little extra something that makes her even more of a skilled fighter. She (Dafne Keen) steals numerous scenes even though she doesn't speak for a large part of the movie. He has played the confident ladies' man, the tortured amnesiac, the self-deprecating hero and the inspirational mentor.
