The Wolverine hits theaters next week, but Hugh Jackman and Co. came down to San Diego to discuss the character, where he fits into the larger X-Men universe, and much much more.  He was joined by director James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma) and producers Hutch Parker and Lauren Shuler Donner. Check out the videos below for the entire show. Also, if you haven’t seen the footage from the X-Men: Days of Future Past conference, do so now.

Conference highlights;

  • Mangold and Jackman reveal that even though the trailer might give us the impression that Logan voluntarily gives up his powers, he does not.  
  • Jackman says that Donner is the reason he is Wolverine. She believed in him and pushed for him since the first X-Men.
  • The panel discussed the importance of the international film market.
  • Mangold stated that the Wolverine you see at the end of the film is a very different Wolverine than the one you see at the beginning, and that the Wolverine at the end is ready for the events of Days of Future Past.
  • Wolverine is very effected by the events of X-Men Last Stand, particularly killing the love of his life Jean Grey.
  • Hugh Jackman says there will be an after-credits scene that sets up X-Men: Days of Future Past.
