James Mangold on The Wolverine: 'Logan gets really pissed off'

By
The Wolverine director James Mangold has insisted that the film pulls no punches when it comes to depicting the character's trademark "berserker rage".

The filmmaker promised a more "pissed-off" incarnation of Logan and said that his aim was to capture the "intensity" of Hugh Jackman's mutant anti-hero.

'Wolverine' still: Hugh Jackman


"The whole point is not about violence or rating; it's about intensity. I wanted to make a film that in a way captures the intensity of his character," he told MTV.

"One of the things that has always been a feature of Wolverine in the comics is that he has a berserker rage, that he has anger and some of his abilities are driven by something more primal.

"Honestly, to get really pissed off - not cute pissed off, not quippy pissed off, not funny pissed off or cigar-chomping pissed off, just pissed off - that can then help drive the fighting, drive the combat."

Jackman will also appear in X-Men: Days of Future Past, the upcoming sequel to X-Men: First Class in which Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are also set to star.

The first trailer for The Wolverine will debut early this year.
