Bryan Singerthe director of X but trilogy, recently came under fire for his behavior on stage and now one of his most famous stars, X but mainstay Hugh Jackman, talked about his experience with the director. While X but The trilogy that Singer directed may have paved the way for superhero movies going into the next decade, his methods may have been less than palatable.
Already in 1997, Singer has been the subject of a number of accusations and lawsuits. In 2014, a new crop of allegations emerged. Singer was eventually relieved of his duties as director of Bohemian Rhapsody after more allegations began to surface. He has not directed a film since then.
Jackman, who of course portrayed wolverine at Singer X but movie, recently spoke with The Guardian. When asked about his experience on set, including whether the director’s subsequent troubles and the allegations against him have changed his perspective on the films, he shared the following:
You know, it’s a really, really complicated question, there are certainly questions that need to be asked, and I think they should be asked. But I guess I don’t know how to elegantly answer that… I think it’s complex, and at the end of the day I look back with pride at what we’ve achieved and the momentum that started.
Jackman added “There are some stories, you know… I think there are some ways of being on set that wouldn’t happen now. And I think things have changed for the better. There is far less tolerance for disrespect, marginalization, bullying, any oppressive behavior. There’s zero tolerance for it now, and people are going to speak up, and I think that’s great.”
Jackman is currently preparing his return to the X-Men in 2024 Deadpool 3.
