Guillermo del Toro expressed interest in directing, being a fan of the Japanese saga in the "Wolverine" comics. He met with James Gianopulos and Hugh Jackman about directing the film, but ultimately decided he did not wish to spend 2-3 years of his life working on the film. See more »

I'm not really good with reviews so I'll just share my thoughts.
I loved the way the movie started and that was about it. Die hard Wolverine fans will probably like it more, but I think X-men movies are much more interesting. Hugh Jackman plays the role great and I can't imagine another actor replacing him. The fight scenes were also very entertaining and well choreographed, but there was something missing (more mutants?) and I don't know what. There were a bit too much cliché's both plot and character - wise too.
That said - I would gladly watch another Wolverine movie and hope it turns out better than this one. I would recommend the movie, but don't expect "A man of steel" awesome effects and dramatic storyline. Just grab some popcorn and enjoy, BUB!
