SAN DIEGO -- Hugh Jackman, star of the three X-Men movies and the upcoming X-Men Origins: Wolverine, made a surprise appearance on Thursday during Fox's presentation at Comic-Con International.

Following are highlights:

* Jackman said he just finished filming and there was "no way" he wouldn't bring Wolverine to the convention.

*Jackman went into the crowd and shook the hand of Wolverine creator Len Wein, thanking him for the character who "made my career."

* Jackman said even with playing the character for the fourth time, there's still a lot of explore.

* "All I'll say is the movie is big, it is action-packed and if there are two words to describe a Wolverine movie, it's bad-ass," Jackson said, adding "you're going to see a lot of berserker rage."

* Jackman then presented a clip from the film, showing Stryker and his recruitment of Wolverine and other mutants.

Blob and Deadpool were shown, and the appearance of Gambit brought squeals from the audience. "I knew you guys would be happy to see Gambit," Jackman said.

A major fight with Sabretooth was shown.

At the end, Wolverine says, "I'm gonna cut your goddamn head off. Let's see how that works."

* Jackman said there will be a panel at WonderCon for the movie.

* Look for more on the panel soon here in The Continuum.
