Will The Wolverine be the biggest hit of the X-Men universe? We won’t know till the film opens (reportedly in 2012) but it certainly might be our biggest Wolverine: Hugh Jackman tells EW that director Darren Aronofsky has already asked him to gain 25 lbs of muscle — “which is more than I ever have for the role” — before filming begins next spring. “It’s not easy for me,” he says. “Because I’m actually quite long and lean.” For advice he turned to none other than The Rock! “I had a chat with Dwayne Johnson, who did 25 pounds for his movie,” Jackman says, referring to Johnson’s latest, Faster.

SPIDERMAN STARTS SHOOTING WITH EPIC CAMERAS
John Schwartzman, cinematographer of Sony’s upcoming untitled Spider-Man movie, revealed on the RedUser.net forums that shooting started on Monday for the film and that they are using Epic Digital Cameras, much like how The Hobbit will be shot in 3D:

We shot in 3D with 4 Epics mounted on 2 3ality TS-5 rigs today, we did 22 set ups, including running high speed and the images look stunning! I do believe the sensor is iso 800 minus 1 stop for the mirror in daylight and iso 640 in tungsten light but that is really for every dp to determine for themselves, Brook Willard and I figured 640 tungsten but that’s just a number.
