Comic-Con: Surprise! Hugh Jackman and ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’

Hugh Jackman:  ‘It’s badass."  And it was!

In a Comic-Con surprise, and straight from Australia, Hugh Jackman hopped off a plane and jumped on stage with a trailer for "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," and it was a huge hit!  From what I could see, popular characters Sabretooth and Silver Fox were there … and Gambit!!

Jackman enthusiastically bounded off stage to shake the hand of Wolverine creator Len Wein, who was in the audience.  It was a wonderful moment and pretty genuine when he told Wein that he "gave him a career."
