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.
