Hugh Jackman thought of quitting X-Men

London, (ANI): Hollywood actor Hugh Jackman contemplated quitting X-Men franchise after the third movie, because he felt his character 'Wolverine' had gone "too soft" and was lacking the much-hyped rage. The Oz hunk thought of stepping down after he thought his character was not developing the way it was meant to.

"One thing I never felt we got with Wolverine that I really wanted to get is that berserker rage which is talked about in the comic books," The Daily Express quoted Hugh, as saying. "It felt like Wolverine had got a little soft by X-Men 3 and I wanted to take it back to that bad a** quality. He's tough, he's gruff, he's not politically correct - he doesn't say the right things.

"There has to be complexity to this character. He's very tough but there's a lot of pain, history to his life that you find out about. It's not pretty. "He's a flawed character. That's what I like about it, that's why I'm doing it for the fourth time or else I wouldn't," he concluded.
