OK, so he doesn't use those words!
But Hugh Jackman is totes assuring fans that his new film The Wolverine is going to be infinitely better! He says:
"I think one of the keys to me in signing on to this movie was that we had a very strong idea and we had a strong approach to the story. That we really went from something new and different, and the moment the studio agreed to call it The Wolverine, I was just thrilled, rather than saying Wolverine 2. This is a standalone movie."
So what made X-Men Origins: Wolverine less than desirable for a sequel? Hugh admits it just wasn't that good! He says:
"I think for whatever reason, there were a number of things working against us at the time in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. We all put our heart and soul into it, I just honestly when I watched it I went, I still don’t feel like we’ve really delivered who my vision of who this character is."
Aw, that's the nicest way he could possibly have phrased it! What a sweet guy!
We didn't work with any of the people involved, so we'll just say it sucked. It doesn't mean that the people involved weren't awesome- it just seemed thrown together!
We're glad to hear this go around, they've taken their time! And learned from past mistakes!
