I started following Hugh Jackman on Instagram a couple months back. Around that time he buzzed his head and showed off some pictures of him with a big black beard trimmed in a very swashbuckler/piratical fashion. He said he was Blackbeard but I just took that as some sort of jest and figured his new look was for another movie.
I was so wrong.
He’s actually playing Blackbeard.
In a Peter Pan movie.
He published this photo on Sunday.
Blackbeard has some pretty swords.
Anyways, it got me wondering what this movie was all about. I thought it’d be about Blackbeard (which would be really cool) but, as mentioned earlier, it’s for a new Peter Pan movie called Pan. Here’s the synopsis via IMDB:
The story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland. There, he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny — to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan.
Not sure how Blackbeard got to Neverland but whatevs. At least this Blackbeard has a black beard. Crazy, I know, but some shows just don’t get it.
