Director Maneesh F Singh to attempt to recreate a Wolverine-like character from ‘X-Men’ for his OTT web series project


MUMBAI: Speaking to a daily in Mumbai, director Maneesh F Singh said he is working on a new OTT release web series based on a fictional mythological story and is attempting to recreate a Wolverine-like character – from the famous Hollywood X-men film franchise, in the Indian project.

“One of my all time favourite Hollywood characters is Wolverine from the ‘X-Men’ film franchise played by Hugh Jackman. The character has an aura of its own and it is primarily due to Jackman’s persona and acting skills. When we started working on a mythological project for a fictional web series, one of my first suggestions was to incorporate a Wolverine-like character. And that is how the flying wolf with a monkey-like tail was born. We are still working at the drawing board stage. There is a lot of animation and VFX involved in this project and a lot of planning goes into the creation and preparation of the characters,” Maneesh F Singh said.

Meanwhile, according to an agency report, Hollywood star Hugh Jackman, who played Wolverine in the ‘X-Men’ film franchise, recently opened up after more than two decades, speaking about how playing the Wolverine character took a toll on his voice.

Jackman will once again be seen playing Wolverine in the upcoming Ryan Reynolds starrer ‘Deadpool 3’ which will release in theatres on September 6, 2024.
