Real Steel star Dakota Goyo is in another of Hugh Jackman’s films: Rise of the Guardians. While speaking to The Star for the soon-to-be-released DreamWorks Animation picture, he mentioned his previous co-star several times — including whether or not there will be more robot boxing adventures:
On getting involved with Guardians: “It happened two years ago. DreamWorks Animation asked me if I wanted to do the part, and of course I’m going to take it. It’s a great opportunity. There’s so many successful people in [the film]: Isla Fisher, Hugh Jackman, Alec Baldwin, Jude Law, Chris Pine; so many successful people that I’d love to be like someday.”
On Hugh’s transition to Bunnymund: “I think it was really funny how he was Wolverine at one point and now all of a sudden, he’s a bunny. I think that’s hilarious.”
As for whether Goyo will actually be working again with Jackman — in the flesh, that is — in a sequel to Real Steel, which pleased critics and audiences as it raked it almost $300 million worldwide, the young actor is understandably coy.
“There may be [a sequel]. I’m not allowed to say. There may be, there may not, I’m waiting to hear,” Goyo said. But, he added with more certainty, “it will be amazing.”
