I think I'm turning Japanese! - Says Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman

I love Wolverine, you love Wolverine, and best of all, Hugh Jackman loves Wolverine. So much so that it seems he may be pushing for a movie adaptation of the Japanese saga.
From MTV:

"I won’t lie to you, I have been talking to writers," Jackman told MTV News. "I’m a big fan of the Japanese saga in the comic book."

"There are so many areas of that Japanese story," Jackman explained. "I love the idea of this kind of anarchic character, the outsider, being in this world — I can see it aesthetically, too — full of honor and tradition and customs and someone who's really anti-all of that, and trying to negotiate his way. The idea of the samurai, too — and the tradition there. It's really great. In the comic book he gets his ass kicked by a couple of samurai — not even mutants. He's shocked by that at first."

"There's also a great, very intricate story there with Mariko," hinted Jackman in reference to one of Wolverine's lost loves. "And so many cool ways we could go."

This may be the beginning of the Wolverine/X-Men movie that everyone wants to see!

As far back as "X-Men 2," Jackman has wanted to do the Japanese story arc, but he also expressed the need to set the character with "Origins" first.

It's obvious that Jackman really loves the Wolverine character, and I have always thought he has been stupendous in portraying him.
