The Wolverine Slices to Top Spot: Weekend Box Office Report

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Hugh Jackman and his cinematic alter ego, The Wolverine, topped the last weekend in July’s box office with $55 million in its first week of release. Expectations for the film were higher than its actual earnings, so we may have seen the last Wolverine solo film. Of course, Jackman will be back in the X-Men fold with the highly anticipated X-Men: Days of Future Past, but The Wolverine may be it for our ripped and dangerous hero.

Perhaps if the people who run Hollywood could allow themselves to take some creative risk and Hugh Jackman could be persuaded with a good script what could happen is there could be what in Marvel comics was called at team-up inn which Wolverine could team up with say Hawkeye, or Black Widow. Such team-ups if done right would give an extra financial dimension to the screen character. A team-up certain to generate interest at least from Marvel comic fans would be a definitive team-up movie about Daredevil and Electra and it would actually be in my view good with Afleck and his wife Jennifer since they both play the parts before and could do it again better if they had the appropriate script. Think about it. Phadreus
