IESB has the scoop direct from Fox Film Group president Tom Rothman. Their coverage said, “Hugh Jackman recently alluded that the Wolverine spin off film may be a prequel, how accurate is that? Although he says he will get in trouble if he tells, just between him and her, yes it’s a prequel.”
Actor Brandon Routh was interviewed by Fox News and spoke about the reasons behind the film’s thesis and title. “It’s nice to watch the character mature, rather than just to start over again,” Routh said. “He gets to continue his journey, which is exciting, I think, for fans, instead of retelling again what we’ve seen in many different versions. We really get to see what’s next and watch him evolve as a human, well, as an alien, but on Earth, like we evolve. We get to watch Superman evolve and learn about relationships and love.”
