XXX: Jackman discusses metaphorical nature of 'X-men 3'

by Jeremy Hooper

   Regarding the plot of X3, the upcoming third installment of the X-men film franchise in which the mutants will discover a "cure" for their superpowers, star Hugh Jackman is quoted by the AP as saying:

"If you could actually get rid of your special power which alienates you from the rest of the world, would you do it?" said Jackman, who reprises his role as Wolverine. "It's a metaphor very much about intolerance, I think, fear of anything that's different. If you could choose to not be Jewish or not be gay or not be African-American. Life maybe is not as easy if you're a minority. Would you take the opportunity to change that if you could?"

Further supporting our theory that the changing of one's sexuality is as fictional a concept as Cyclops choosing to stop shooting laser beams out of his eyeballs.

Keeping with the gay metaphor, we hear rumors that the metamorphosis-encouraging villain of the film will run an "ex-mutant" camp, the misguided anti-mutants will constantly claim that the deviants' "lifestyle" is a choice, lawmakers will use the right to inter-mutant legal love as a political football, but thankfully a new character, ActivistJudge Boy, will step in and save the day. All which will serve as setup for X4: Mutant Marriage Supreme Court Hearing.

Be sure to look for EX-Gay 3 X-Men 3 in theaters this summer. No word if the season's other big super hero blockbuster, Superman Returns, will also have gay allusions within its plot; however, we are hearing that the "Kryptonite" in the film has been renamed 'HateCrimeonite.'
