No More X-Movie Sequels for Jackman?

An Aussie source has an interesting interview with Hugh Jackman talking about the future of the X-Men franchise... "While Jackman says he may do another sequel, depending on the success of X-Men 2, it will likely be the last time he battles the bad gu

ICEMAN and Pyro were introduced to X-Men movie-goers, as opposed to X-Men comic book buyers, in the first film when Rogue (Anna Paquin) tentatively attended her first lessons at Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters.

There, for a brief moment, Pyro (Aaron Stanford) played with fire, while Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) doused it with his ability to radiate intense cold.

This time round, the two young men have matured enough to have far greater parts to play in the story, even to the point where Rogue gets over her infatuation with Wolverine to direct her affections towards Iceman. It's a romance fraught with difficulties since she has the power to suck out the life force of anyone who touches her.

Meanwhile Pyro's ability to manipulate fire threatens to overwhelm his understanding of Xavier's teachings.

The story deals with the threat to Mutants from the villainous human Stryker (Bryan Cox).

He's aided and abetted by the Mutant Deathstrike (Yuriko Oyama) who, like Wolverine, has adamantium claws and amazing healing powers.

Other Mutants include:

 Nightcrawler (Alan Cumming), a blue-skinned, yellow-eyed Mutant with powers of teleportation

 Collossus (Daniel Cudmore), who can change his flesh to organic steel

 Siryn (Shauna Kain), who can unleash eardrum-piercing sonic screams

 Shadowcat (Katie Stuart), who can pass through ceilings and walls

 Jubilee (Kea Wong), who can control fireworks, and the fork-tongued Artie (Bryce Hodgson).
