Having played Wolverine for seven films now you’d have thought that picking a favourite ‘X-Men’ scene as the beloved character would prove to be impossible.
But that couldn’t be further from the truth, because Hugh Jackman had no qualms admitting that his favourite scene as Wolverine came in ‘X-Men: First Class’, and it’s easy to see why.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Jackman admitted, “I think, ultimately, my favourite moment is the came in ‘First Class’.”
And anyone who has seen 2011’s ‘X-Men: First Class’ will immediately understand why Jackman has picked out his one moment in Matthew Vaughn’s prequel.
The scene in question sees Wolverine sat at a bar enjoying a tipple when Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) walk in and prepare to ask him to join their growing gaggle of mutants.
However, before the pair can even get their words out to ask Wolverine, he immediately declines them by exclaiming, “Go f*** yourselves.”
It’s quick, pithy and downright hilarious, and it’s immediately understandable why the Australian actor picked it out as his favourite moment.
Unfortunately, there won’t be many more Wolverine scenes to pick from as Hugh Jackman is going to make his eighth and final appearance as the beloved character in ‘Wolverine 3’, the script of which is still being finished, but is touted for a release on March 3, 2017.
