Hugh Jackman Had a Bad Feeling About His Botched Wolverine Stunt in X-Men Movie That Ended in an Unpleasant Incident

Hugh Jackman wouldn’t want to be reminded of one horrible incident on the sets of 2000s X-Men.

Hugh Jackman in X-Men

Hugh Jackman’s first big role in Hollywood, Wolverine in the first X-Men, eventually became his most popular role. The actor became a household name with the first X-Men and Wolverine has become synonymous with the character so much so that fans can imagine no one else playing Wolverine as great as Jackman.

However when he was hired on the first X-Men, he and no star power and was basically a nobody. While doing one complex action sequence in the film, he felt unsure about it but was not in a position to question it. While performing the sequence, he accidentally knocked out a stuntwoman unconscious and he hated himself for letting that happen.

Hugh Jackman Vowed Never to Repeat a Horrible Mishap on The First X-Men

When Hugh Jackman was cast as Wolverine in the first X-Men film, people were scoffing at the idea of a relatively unknown actor essaying such an iconic Marvel character. However, it was Jackman’s first big role in Hollywood and he was committed to changing the perceptions of skeptical Marvel fans with his portrayal of the character.

Although, he did not have any say about his character’s actions and how a scene should be carried out as he was not an established name at the time. While shooting an action sequence in X-Men, a horrible accidental mistake in the choreography led to Jackman becoming infuriated with himself.

As he told Success, he was unsure about a particular action choreography in the film but was not in a position to make changes. Jackman accidentally punched a stuntwoman in the chin during the scene, which knocked her unconscious. He lost it and was very angry for letting something horrible like that happen.

The actor learned a lot from the incident stating that “Film is important. The people making the film are more important.”. He vowed to never repeat it again and would be upfront if something did not feel right during a film which may cause problems later on.

Ryan Reynolds Calls out Hugh Jackman, Intensifying Their Hilarious Rivalry

As Deadpool & Wolverine soon coming to theatres, the best way to increase the hype of the film is for Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman to build on their brilliant fake rivalry that they have been committing to for years. It seems they are leaning hard on it as part of the promotions for the film, as Reynolds has some not-so-cool things to say about Jackman.

While promoting his new film IF, Reynolds was asked about working with Jackman and him returning as Wolverine after previously retiring from the role. Reynolds hilariously called Jackman a liar and a bald-faced coward for not sticking to his word. He also teased how Wolverine’s arc in Deadpool & Wolverine is one of the fun parts of the film. The actor told AP Entertainment, “Now, I think, I think we all can see that Hugh is a liar, you know? He’s a bald-faced horrible coward and a liar. Uh, here he is, back again. You know, you have to find out how he comes back because that’s one of the most fun aspects of the movie.”

In addition to Jackman and Reynolds, the film will also star Emma Corrin, Morena Baccarin, Rob Delaney, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, and Matthew Macfadyen. Deadpool & Wolverine will hit theatres on July 26, 2024.
