Hugh Jackman is slashing his way back to his star making role as a razor-clawed mutant in the latest installment of the X-Men franchise "The Wolverine." Only this time the character's human side will be explored in an effort to draw in a new audience. "One of our things with this movie is that we want people who've never seen an X-Men movie to not be intimated to go. And it's one of the reasons why it's called 'The Wolverine' and not Wolverine five or three, or two or whatever it is," he said. For the record, this is the sixth time Jackman has reprised his role as Wolverine, which according to press notes, is "the most times a single actor has ever played a comic book hero." He is currently in production on the seventh film. Jackman filmed the first installment back in the early 2000's and said he remembers it well. "I walked on set and someone in the crew said, 'Oh Elvis is in the building,' and my hairstyle practically. And the director Bryan Singer overheard it. And he said, 'cut, cut, cut, cut, what, Elvis. Ok, let's go back.' And we shut down for the rest of the day and spent the rest of the day in the makeup trailer trying to redo the hair," he told Reuters. The film follows Logan, also know as Wolverine, to Japan where he ends up fighting to save the life of a beautiful heiress while teetering on the brink of becoming a human being and even death. "The Wolverine" will be released in U.S. theaters on July 26th.
