Hugh Jackman's Cinematic Journey as 'The Wolverine'

Find out how Russell Crowe, Mike Tyson and die-hard Comic-Con fans inspired Jackman to make this role his own.

The Wolverine

With Hugh Jackman about to hit the big screens for a fifth time as Wolverine, it is hard to imagine anyone else playing the role of the superhero. However, it almost never came to pass. Jackman met his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, when they both starred in the Australian TV show Corelli, and she has played a key role in helping him choose all his acting roles ever since.

In a recent profile of Jackman on 60 Minutes, it was revealed that Furness originally did not want her husband to take on the role, but Jackman overruled his better half and decided to go for it. She has since relented, but that decision has paid off handsomely for Jackman, as his starring role in X-Men catapulted him on to the A-List, where he has resided ever since.

To celebrate the cinematic release of The Wolverine - check out the awesome trailer above - we are going to take a look at the other movies where Jackman clawed up to kick ass and take names.
