I’ve gone on record multiple times begging Hugh Jackman to one day wear one of Wolverine’s classic costumes from the Marvel comic books. I’m not picky. I’d take yellow and blue, or brown and maroon. Both are amazing, and both would help cement his portrayal of the character as the greatest love letter to X-Men fans cinema could provide.

While there’s a strong contingent of fans who believed Jackman and Mangold finally came the closest to capturing the feral rage of Wolverine in last summer’s The Wolverine, I honestly didn’t anticipate the 45-year-old Jackman to commit to playing the character for the next 5 years, give or take.

I weighed this against the comment that the film’s star Hugh Jackman made at the press event, calling women his character’s “Achille’s heel.” I realized that in The Wolverine women are shown to be as crucial to defining the titular character as his adamantium claws.

What set The Wolverine apart, and helped it earn significantly better reviews than the last standalone Wolverine effort, was that it was essentially a family drama dressed up as a superhero film. Logan travels to Japan and finds himself protecting Mariko, a woman targeted by the Yakuza because she's poised to inherit her grandfather's vast fortune. Every fight scene in the film is about protecting Mariko, or her sort-of sister Yukio. Every heroic decision Logan makes in the film is for the sake of someone he actually knows
