The legacy of Original series from x men movies is very complicated. they were reven redeemed In front Sam Raimis spiderman, and the current boom in superhero success can easily be traced back to them. Even some of the stars, like Patrick Stewart, are still repeating their roles with new films. But above it all hovers director Bryan Singer, who in the past few years was accused by several men sexual misconduct. Singer has denied these claims.
Arguably the greatest legacy, however, is Hugh Jackman. Singer cast the then-unknown actor as the main and most popular character, Wolverine, and he not only became an instant starHe held on to the role for decades. He will even do it again in 2024 dead pool 3. Now, however, Jackman has addressed one aspect The Singer controversyand while the statements are not special Goodthat he addressed her at all and with such consideration is commendable.
Speaking to The Guardian about his last film The sonJackman was asked if he witnessed any of this Singer’s toxic behavior on set. So he replied with tThe Guardian delivery notes: “‘That was my first film in America, you have to understand; it was all so new to me,’ the actor claimed. ‘I think it’s fair to say that…’ He pauses. ‘There are some stories, you know… I think there are some ways of being on set that wouldn’t happen now. And I think things have changed for the better.”‘ He then added, ‘There is far less tolerance for disrespectful, marginalizing, bullying, oppressive behavior. There’s zero tolerance for that now and people are going to speak up and I think that’s great.”
Jackman seems to be saying here that Year 2000 Hugh Jackman, an actor who had hardly acted in anything, didn’t quite know how or if to address these “stories.” Which obviously isn’t a good excuse, but it makes sense. “Year 2023 Hugh Jackman” has significantly more pull, impact and experience. It also speaks to the power dynamic that runs through all of Singer’s allegations — tHIn doing so, he had used his influence to manipulate those around him.
Stepping back somewhat, Jackman had positive things to say about the films and experiences beyond the director. When asked if any of the allegations against Singer tarnished her legacy, he responded as follows. “You know, that’s a really, really complicated question,” Jackman said. “There is a lot at stake. X-Men was, I think, the turning point in terms of comic book movies, and I think there’s a lot to be proud of. And there are certainly questions that need to be asked, and I think they should be asked. But I don’t think I know how to answer that elegantly. I think it’s complex and in the end I look back with pride on what we’ve achieved and the momentum it started.”
Jackman will reprises his role as Wolverine in dead pool 3which is scheduled for release on November 8, 2024.
