|Wolverine v Tony Stark...yeah we'd watch that fight!
The Aussie musical hardman Hugh Jackman has thrown down a quote saying Wolverine from “X-Men” could beat Robert Downey Jr’s character Tony Stark, aka “Iron Man” in a fight. Shocking.
Jackman has started filming the sixth installment of the “X-Men” and while speaking to ScreenRant revealed that he would love if Disney-Marvel and Fox’s legal departments would allow the “X-Men” characters to appear in “The Avengers” movies.
He said, “You know, obviously we have people from - one of the great things about this movie is that a lot of people from Marvel are here and it seems a lot more inclusive than it has been in the past. I don't know what's happening behind the scenes, but I think it's fantastic. I actually just asked the other day, I said, 'I don't know what the legal situation is, but why don't these companies come together? Why isn't it possible?'" he asked ScreenRant.
"Because personally, I would love to mix it up with Robert Downey Jr. and Iron Man and kick his ass. It'd be great. [Laughs] There you go. There's your quote!"
Jackman also praised Kevin Feige, the producer of “The Avengers” saying he made him feel very welcome on set before he was cast as Wolverine.
He said, “I think it'd be fantastic. I loved The Avengers. I love what they do with it. Kevin Feige, by the way, I can tell you, is one of the true gentlemen of this business. And I say that from when he was on [the first] X-Men, and I don't even know what his role was, officially, associate producer maybe? But, when I first auditioned for Bryan [Singer], Dougray [Scott] was playing the role. Bryan... I think I was sent there by the studio. I don't think he even knew I was coming, and it was one of those auditions you walk out going, 'Well, I know this isn't happening.' Instead of just putting me on a plane, I remember him taking me out, him and Tom DeSanto took me out to a restaurant because I had to stay overnight. It was too late.
“They took me out for dinner. I remember thinking, I go, 'Well, I know I'm not in this movie, so you guys are true gentlemen.' They were really nice. I know how busy they were. They were already filming at the time, and I know I really wasn't doing it.”
