Hugh Jackman Discusses His Favorite Superhero Movies, And There Is No X-Men

Australian actor Hugh Jackman has made many a hit film with a solid career on the stage before breaking into movies. His role as Wolverine in the X-Men franchise made him a global superstar. Considering that Jackman’s going to return to the role of Wolverine at least one more time, after planning to retire from the character, it’s clear Jackman loves Wolverine, but his favorite superhero movies aren’t in the X-Men franchise. In fact they’re not even Marvel. Both of his favorites are from DC.

Hugh Jackman has revaled that his favorite superhero movies belong to the two big names in DC. He called seeing Richard Donner’s original Superman a “game changer.” As far as more modern superhero fare, Jackman loves the same Batman movie that the rest of us love, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. The actor explains…

My favorite superhero movie? Growing up, the first Superman. That was a game-changer. Dick Donner movie, Christopher Reeve. I’m gonna say, I’m thinking one of the Nolan Batmans. Dark Knight? I’m gonna go Dark Knight.
