Origins: Wolverine is superhero film based on the
fictional Marvel Comics character Wolverine, due for
release on May 1, 2009. The film is directed by Gavin
Hood and stars Hugh Jackman as the title character.
It is a prequel to the X-Men film trilogy, focusing
on the mutant Wolverine and his time with Team X,
before Wolverine's skeleton was bonded with the indestructible
metal adamantium. The film was mostly shot in Australia
and New Zealand.
roughly twenty years before X-Men, the film will
focus on Wolverine's violent past, and his early
encounters with William Stryker (Danny Huston).
The Weapon X program and his interactions with
other mutants will be explored, including his
complex relationship with Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber).
Jackman as Logan / Wolverine, the mutant and future
X-Man. Jackman, who played Wolverine in the previous
films, has also become producer of the film via
his company Seed Productions, and earned $20 million
for the film. Jackman underwent a high intensity
weight training regimen to bulk up for his role.
He changed the program to shock the body into
change and also performed cardiovascular workouts.
He woke up each morning a 4am to eat one of the
small number of protein-based meals he was allowed
each day. Jackman worked out in a Queenstown gym
where he would arrive daily at 6am. He stayed
in character and made noises while exercising.
Software is developing a video game based on the film,
which Activision will publish. Marc Guggenheim wrote
the script. The official trailer of the film has been
confirmed to be released on December 12
speculated that there could be a sequel, which may
be set in Japan. Such a location was the subject of
Claremont and Miller's series, which was not in the
first film as Jackman felt “what we need to
do is establish who [Logan] is and find out how he
became Wolverine". Jackman stated the Claremont-Miller
series is his favorite Wolverine story. He added another
Wolverine film would be a follow-up rather than continuing
on from X-Men: The Last Stand. The inclusion of Deadpool
and Gambit also leads to the possibilities of their
investigating film leak of X-Men Origins: Wolverine
