Wolverine: X-Men 4

It’s been almost 3 years since the release of the X-Men The Last Stand, the third installment in the series of X-Men movies based on the comic book characters. In a few days time it will be the 1st of May.

In some countries the 1st of May is known as May Day but in South Africa it’s known as Worker’s Day. But I digress – it’s also the international release date for Wolverine, the 4th installment of the X-Men movies where we’ll learn more about Wolverine’s character and past.

I’ve enjoyed the previous three movies so I’m looking forward to watching the fourth. Some may not have realised or know this but not all have been directed by the same person. The fourth is no different, as it’ll be directed by Gavin Hood. Who? I’ll explain in a second.

South Africa is making another name for iteself amongst the celebrities of Hollywood. First it was Charlize Theron who made South Africa proud by appearing in many block-buster movies and winning herself an Oscar for her performance in Monster. Now, Gavin Hood, another South African, former actor from a local TV-series called The Game, the director of the Oscar winning film, Tsotsi and now director of, what I’m sure will also undoubtedly be, another block-buster movie, Wolverine

Apparently, Hugh Jackman approached Gavin Hood directly for the director’s role of the movie as he was impressed with what Gavin had done with Tsotsi. Gavin’s never directed an action movie so this will be interesting – I know he’ll make us proud!

  2. Wow .. SA has been making a lot of good news lately. Congratulations to Gavin Hood for being chosen to be a part of such a huge movie.

    I recently watched clips of Charlize Theron in “The Burning Plain.” She was very good. I can’t wait until the movie is released.
