I would, however, have liked to seen a much shorter man be cast as Wolverine. Jackman is listed at 6' 2 1/2". I would have liked to have seen a much shorter man's take on the role.
Marvel sold the rights, so there's nothing they can do about it. Besides, why would you want to see a midget with claws fight onscreen. Or a suit like he wears in the comics. It would look ridiculous and nobody (the general audience who know almost nothing about him) will take the character serious. Sabretooth (X1) was taller than Jackman so he was still a runt.
