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."
