The annual Comic-Con always hosts an array of surprises and special treats, but the one presented by 20th Century Fox earlier today (July 20th) was one of the most spectacular ever brought to Hall H. The press conference – and, later, panel – for X-Men: Days of Future Past featured the entire cast! That includes Patrick Stewart, Halle Berry, James McAvoy, Anna Paquin, Ian McKellen, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Michael Fassbender, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Ellen Page, Evan Peters, and Omar Sy along with Hugh Jackman himself. Director Bryan Singer was also part of the panels.
At just over twenty minutes, the press conference – which you can watch in the video above – explores various topics among both the “new” and “old” X-Men cast. In fact, there’s a lot of discussion on collaborating and the experience of working with one another — with Hugh as a sort of binding force between them. It’s a lovely interview among everyone as you can tell they’re quite a close cast. Check it out!
Earlier today (July 20th), Hugh Jackman stopped by the WIRED Café at the 2013 Comic-Con in San Diego. There, he met up with Vice President & Publisher of WIRED magazine, Howard S. Mittman, along with Kevin Feige (aka president of Marvel Studios). Several pictures of Hugh have been added to the gallery, including him on the “red carpet,” posing with a comic book-esque POW! sign, and meeting the two aforementioned men.
Yesterday (July 19th), on day two of Comic-Con 2013, Hugh Jackman stopped by the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego. There, he visited the Xbox One room, which hosted a video interview suite. A couple of pictures from his stop in have been added to the gallery.
Yesterday, July 18th, MSN hosted an exclusive live Q&A with Hugh Jackman and The Wolverine director James Mangold. You can check out several images from the event in the gallery, or a video below. Through the half-hour segment, Hugh and James were able to answer questions from fans around the world (with many surprises in store, like tattoos and Wolverine shrines). Specifically, Hugh discusses some workout tips (there’s no running for him) and what X-Men-universe character he would want to play aside from Wolverine.
Yesterday (July 16th), at Empire Leicester Square in London, Hugh Jackman attened the UK premiere for The Wolverine. Co-stars Famke Janssen, Will Yun Lee, Tao Okamoto, Hugh Jackman, Rila Fukushima and Hiroyuki Sanada were all in attendance along with director James Mangold. Deborra-Lee Furness was also at the event; however, she arrived separately from Hugh and later joined him at the inside red carpet.
On Monday, July 15th, Hugh Jackman attended the Seoul premiere for The Wolverine. After attending the press conference earlier in the day, he headed to Coex in South Korea and was greeted by legions of fans. As far as I can tell, he was the only cast member to attend. A bunch of photos from the event – including Hugh signing autographs and walking the red carpet – have been added to the gallery.
Just pictures for now, but hopefully we’ll get video footage soon!
For those lucky fans attending Comic-Con 2013, you have something else to be excited about: Fox has just announced that they are bringing The Wolverine to the event. Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold are expecting to appear to talk about the film. They’ve also promised “something major,” which some are speculating means an X-Men: Days Of Future Past panel. We’ll find out what that surprise is – and what Hugh has to say at Comic-Con – on the day of the event, July 20th. More info below:
When the official Comic-Con schedule landed last week, one studio’s presentation summary was left blank. 20th Century Fox didn’t reveal what it would be bringing to Hall H on Saturday, but now there’s some information on what big-name stars will be in attendance.
The Wolverine will claw its way into the presentation, with Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold both participating. The film will hit theaters shortly after the Con, on July 26.
The invite for the studio’s press conferences also teases a surprise panel and promises “something major.” There’s speculation that X-Men: Days of Future Past will be the big surprise. The film hits theaters in May 2014.
Fox’s panel begins at 4:15 p.m. on Saturday in Hall H. Comic-Con runs July 17-21 in San Diego.
