“As excited as (the fans) are, I can tell you it'll exceed those expectations,” he said. “I feel it's that good. I'm very, very excited about it.”
The Australian actor also touched on his fondness for Wolverine – a role he first played in 2000.
“He's like a best friend, Wolverine,” he said. “He's the beginning of my career here in America and he's still there. It's been 14-years and I can't believe it.
"And I love the character. I love playing him and I'm probably loving him more than ever.”
