‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ Movie Spawns New ‘Wolverine’ & ‘Weapon X’ Comics


There’s a lot to like about the upcoming debut of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” in theaters (including the ridiculously cool “Wolverine” movie trailer), but one of the best things about the recent surge of comics-based films is the fact that their new, live-action stories tend to prompt new, print-medium stories, too.

This time around, everyone’s favorite Canucklehead will get the spotlight as the May 1 release of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” approaches. And much like they did with the debut of Matt Fraction’s “Invincible Iron Man” series timed to the release of the “Iron Man” movie, Marvel Comics recently announced a pair of new titles featuring Wolverine that will hit shelves a month before the film hits theaters.

After the jump, you can read more about the new Wolverine titles and get a peek at the covers for each project.

First up will be a new, ongoing series titled “Wolverine: Weapon X” written by Jason Aaron (”Ghost Rider”) with art by Ron Garney (”Amazing Spider-Man”). According to Marvel, the series will explore Logan’s ties to the mysterious Weapon X program introduced in the “X-Men 2″ movie and explored further in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” “Wolverine: Weapon X” will kick off in April 2009.

Wolverine and the X-Men

The official site for Wolverine and the X-Men is up and running. There's not much there yet, but I suspect that will change as we get closer to the US air date on January 23rd 2009. Have a look at the site here.

Hugh Jackman: X appeal


If playing a gay entertainer on Broadway led Hollywood to question Jackman’s leading man credentials, his performance as a red-blooded cowboy in Australia has settled the argument.

Hugh Jackman’s face breaks into a wide grin when he sees the tray of sushi I have brought him. Diet features large in this Australian actor’s life. When he was in training to play the mutant action hero Wolverine in the X-Men films he was waking at 4am for his first meal and eating every three hours. 'This is a good way to my heart,’ he says. 'What you eat is everything. I always thought it was about lifting harder, heavier, longer. Now I think you have to eat more and eat leaner.’

We meet on a warm breezy day at his film production company, Seed Productions, based at Fox Studios in Sydney. He is svelte in a black Louis Vuitton shirt and jeans, his tanned face obscured by sunglasses. His thick nut-brown hair is slicked back, emphasising those chiselled features and well-groomed stubble.

Rather than sit inside to talk about his new film, he motions to a grubby table and chair on the grass opposite. In Hollywood Jackman’s reputation as the Mr Nice Guy precedes him. Rachel Weisz went so far as to describe Jackman, whom she starred opposite in The Fountain, as 'a sort of male sex God. He’s so beautiful and such a perfect gentleman at the same time.’

He has lost 9lb training for his starring role in Baz Luhrmann’s new film, Australia, as 'the drover’ – a lasso-slinging whip-cracking cowboy – and he only picks at the sashimi: he doesn’t do carbs after midday. Down-to-earth, with no trace of self-importance, Jackman is an intriguing combination of laidback Aussie charm and flashes of English thespian (his parents are English). He speaks fast in a sunny drawl, quotes Shakespeare and tends to ruminate philosophically on the nature of the self.

Jackman’s career is singular for its versatility. Now 40, he began in musical theatre – leading roles in Beauty and the Beast and Sunset Boulevard in Australia led to a year in London, where he first came to the attention of the British public playing Curly in Trevor Nunn’s Oklahoma! in 1998, for which he was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award. Six years later he won a Tony Award for his portrayal of the gay Australian entertainer Peter Allen, in the Broadway musical The Boy from Oz, which would lead to three years hosting the glitzy Tony Awards at New York’s Radio City Music Hall.
