In the a long time since going up against the part, Hugh Jackman has spellbound groups of onlookers in his depiction of Logan Howlett, A.K.A. Wolverine. In any case, for a timeframe, another Australian A-Lister practically played the part. Furthermore, now, he’s at long last uncovered why he didn’t.
Russell Crowe as of late clarified why he turned down the part of Wolverine in 2000’s X-Men. Things being what they are, it needed to do with a part Crowe had effectively taken around that time – Ridley Scott’s Gladiator. Crowe’s character in the film, Maximus, was related with wolf symbolism – something that the performing artist accepted would feel repetitive in the event that he went up against the part of Wolverine.
At last, that parallel didn’t wind up having as large of an essentialness, as the vast majority of the wolf-related minutes in Gladiator did not make the finished edition. At the end of the day, Crowe pointed Singer toward throwing Jackman in X-Men.
