NY Mag’s Vulture blog recruited Marvel: The Untold Story author Sean Howe to chat with Chris Claremont about the Wolverine movie;
So, what did you think of the movie?
The first two acts were kick-ass, and they set this up to be a really exceptional, different movie. It was like the film took this giant step forward. I liked that it focuses on the essence of who Wolverine is and what he does. Hugh Jackman is eloquent, and he owns the character at this point. It’s a surprisingly multidimensional performance. The third act wasn’t bad, per se, but it was a different tone.
Howe is careful to note that Claremont didn’t create Wolverine—Len Wein and John Romita did—but it’s nice to see an OG Bullpenner spotlighted for a change.
