This goes up on Art Attack at 8 AM CT, there's still time to send in those super important queries. Some of us, however, aren't lazy bums like you and have already submitted our own. So before you get to it, make sure you're not being redundant.
Here are my questions. I tried to keep things interesting without compromising my journalistic integrity:
I patiently await Mr. Jackman's responses.
Naturally, there are THOUSANDS of people asking questions already. 90% of which are some variation of "What other Marvel superhero would you like to play?" "Will Wolverine be in Avengers 2?" And, "Why are you so fucking awesome?" I skimmed the rest and came up with a few I thought were particularly sad/hilarious.
Wes is one of many asking training-related questions under the quaint misapprehension any knowledge gained will help him resemble the incredibly jacked Jackman. Meanwhile Eric is clearly forgetting Jackman's turn as the sinister Wyatt in Deception and the dastardly career criminal Jean Valjean in Les Miserables.
Finally, good luck with that, Karime.
What is this shit? "Central theme" of The Wolverine? How about, "He's a stone mutant badass who hates ninjas?" But seriously, I'm sure the psychological transition from "invulnerable murder machine" to "slightly less invulnerable murder machine" and back again will be subtle and rife with meaningful symbolism.
Sentinels. Dark Phoenix. Weapon X. Cyclops + Iron Man + Magneto. In issues set in the future, he also ages, only much more slowly than humans. However, none of these are likely to happen in The Wolverine, unless the stupid movie is four hours long.
And Sofiane has obviously been spoiled by The Avengers.
Floyd and I could hang. And John's question isn't nerdy at all. According to TSR's old Marvel Super Heroes game, Cap's shield (erroneously referred to as a "vibranium-adamantium" alloy when in fact it's a "vibranium -experiemental steel alloy") is endurance 3000 compared to true adamantium (1000). I mean, who doesn't know that?
And Tyler wins this week's Pete Hammond award for shameless bootlicking. Kudos.
The Wolverine opens July 26. You still have a few hours to get your questions in. Or, you know, do something productive.
