Known Trivia

  • Producer Lauren Shuler Donner approached writer Simon Beaufoy to write the script, but Beaufoy did not feel confident enough to commit.
  • Hugh Jackman is a self-confessed fan of the Chris Claremont-Frank Miller “Wolverine” comic (1982), especially the Japanese saga: “There are so many areas of that Japanese story. I love the idea of this kind of anarchic character, the outsider, being in this world full of honor and tradition and customs; someone who’s really anti-all of that, and trying to negotiate his own way. The idea of the samurai too, and the tradition there – it’s really great. In the comic book he gets his ass kicked by a couple of samurai – not even mutants.”
  • Originally the mutant ninja Psylocke was going to be in this film and Priyanka Chopra was considered for the role, but she was written out of the script.
  • Darren Aronofsky was originally set to direct, but pulled out as the long overseas shoot would prevent him from seeing his family.
  • This will be the first time Wolverine will be in a movie without X-Men attached to the title.
  • Including his cameo in X-Men: First Class, this will be Jackman’s sixth portrayal of Logan/Wolverine, breaking his own record.
  • Jessica Biel was offered the role of Viper but a deal couldn’t be reached and she dropped out.
  • Amanda Seyfried was considered for the role of Viper.
  • Jessica Henwick and Katie Leung were considered for the role of Yukio.
  • Togo Igawa was considered for the role of Shingen.
