There have been rumours going around that Wolverine has been delayed because Kidman and Jackman’s Australia has taken up all of the filming stages. However, people with common sense will realise big studios do not turn up and find that filming locations are unavailable. They are booked months in advance to avoid this type of problem. Eventually Fox released a statement saying:
“We are still planning to begin principal photography in January. We have every intention of keeping this on schedule. Australia is a Fox production as well, so we will work with that area of our production group as best we can to make both production schedules work (not to mention availablility of our star of both – Hugh Jackman).”
Jolly good. Now for the good stuff. IESB got word that Maggie Q has a role in the film. This good looking lady has had roles in the latest Die Hard film and Balls of Fury. She will also be joining Jackman in upcoming The List, so no doubt Wolverine was talked about on that set.
Maggie will be playing Silver Fox, Wolverine’s love interest. According to Wikipedia
Silver Fox is a lover of Wolverine who first appeared in Wolverine vol.2 #10, where she is apparently killed by Sabretooth. However, her death is later revealed to be an induced memory of Wolverine’s. In actuality, she is a member of “Team X,” the best covert ops team the CIA had to offer, and is one of a few female victims of the Weapon X project. Fox betrays Team X and becomes a member of Hydra, a subversive terrorist organization. She is later, finally, killed by Sabretooth under the control of the telepathic Psi-Borg, and Wolverine buries her body outside the cabin they once lived in together.
