new-wolverine-home-page On Friday, one of the biggest movie extravaganzas will hit the big screen -- X-Men Origins: Wolverine Hugh Jackman , who has been on a one man media tour, plays the popular Wolverine character.  However, even Wolverine can't stop the swine flu.

Jackman's highly anticipated trip to Mexico has been canceled due to health concerns of the swine flu.  According to The Hollywood Reporter :

"20th Century Fox said it has canceled Hugh Jackman's scheduled appearance in Mexico City to promote 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine.'

The U.S. and several other countries have warned citizens to avoid nonessential travel to Mexico, where the number of deaths blamed on the new virus has surpassed 150. Meanwhile, movie theaters in Mexico City are closed to prevent the flu from spreading.

A Mexico premiere at the National Auditorium and media events Wednesday have been canceled until further notice."

Sad to hear for Mexico - they have to deal with the terror of the swine flu and can't even see Wolverine !  Well, good thing for fans of BET Hugh Jackman will be at 106 & Park this Friday and we will have a review of the film the same day.
