The Movie Defenders

The Movie Defenders podcast is a show dedicated to talking about the best things about the films you love, not tear everything down.

Feb 22, 2021

Time to re-live one of the most underrated super hero films of all time... The Wolverine on The Movie Defenders Podcast! We play many scenes right from the film, and look back at the movie largely forgotten in the midst of the birth of the DCEU and the rise of the MCU. James Mangold and Hugh Jackman twice teamed up to bring a Wolverine movie to life, and this was the first. How does it stack up today? Before that we each talk about our top 5 Hugh Jackman films of all time! After that it's time to talk The Wolverine. So make sure you stay down in that silo, don't put your chopsticks upright, and be sure to dip your arrows in poison... it's time for The Wolverine!
