PLYMOUTH - Sometimes the supporting characters are memorable. That is certainly the case with this week new release, The Wolverine.
Playing at the Tri-Way Drive In, Wolverine is the latest big screen release of one of the Marvel Comics super heroes. I am a fan of super hero movies, although Wolverine is not one of my favorites. Actor Hugh Jackman captures the character well and I am now a fan. This movie is the latest installment in Jackmanâs movie role as the Wolverine, which he has been cast in since 2000, and has claimed it as his own.
