Men: Chris Claremont Wanted Bob Hoskins To Play Wolverine

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).

Russia, China Veto Resolution Imposing Sanctions on Syrian Regime, Egypt Abstains
The draft envisaged a ban on supplies of all types of helicopters to the Syrian government, army and government structures. Russia's deputy United Nations ambassador Vladimir Safronkov said such criticism was "outrageous" and "politically biased".

John Lewis to axe 387 jobs amid 'structural change'
John Lewis is to cut 387 jobs as part of its efforts to limit costs as the retail sector prepares for a more hard year. In an attempt to cut costs and be more efficient, John Lewis is now in talks with 773 of its staff about redundancy.

Steelers place exclusive franchise tag on Le'Veon Bell
As a result, he tallied 261 carries en route to 1,268 yards on the ground and seven touchdowns. Colbert said that if the team were to franchise tag Bell, it would do so in this way.

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.
