Hugh Jackman has never been lacking in the muscle department. But for his role in The Wolverine, he wanted to be as jacked as ever. So, what do you do when you need to get huge? You get advice from The Rock. Jackman consulted the Fast and Furious star on a new training regiment and followed it during pre-production, gaining a pound of muscle daily. This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which follows your favorite Canadian superhero!

Throughout Wolverine's many appearances in the X-Men movies over the years, he's never worn a costume even close to the one from the comics. That almost changed in The Wolverine. In a scene that wound up being deleted, Logan is on a plane traveling back to the United States from Japan. He's handed a briefcase and inside is his classic yellow-and-black suit from the early days of the comics. Unfortunately it was cut from the film, so you probably shouldn't expect to see that costume in the next Wolverine movie.
