Hugh Jackman had a double hat on this new Wolverine movie: he was both lead actor and producer. So, it was an ideal occasion for him to put forward his vision of Wolverine which is much closer to the comic canon than what we may have seen in the previous X-Men movies:
The character has always reminded me of Dirty Harry or Han Solo. He’s a good guy, not a nice guy. He’s got a lot of flaws, which I think is what people find so attractive about him and the X-Men. He’s struggling with who he is and what he wants. He was one of the comics’ first anti-heroes.”

Hugh Jackman is epitomizing the role of Logan / Wolverine to such an extent, that if I ever meet him I’d almost expect him to show me his adamantium claws. Hugh Jackman as Wolverine rules!
