Eddie the Eagle looks like it could be this generation's Cool Runnings, maybe, sort of — anyway, it looks charming as all get-out thanks to Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman, two actors who have charisma just seeping out of their pores. Although it's not a huge blockbuster movie with superheroes, it is a heartwarming sports dramedy, which makes Eddie the Eagle's new ad debuting during the Super Bowl sort of a no-brainer.

Aside from Hugh Jackman’s “Old Man Logan” tipoff during last year’s Comic-Con, we don’t know much about The Wolverine 2.

Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine for over 15 years. He’s appeared on screen as the iconic X-Men character in seven films, including his uncredited cameo in X-Men: First Class, and by the time The Wolverine 2 rolls around, we can round that number up to eight (and that’s not including the potential for cameos in X-Men: Apocalypse, which he’s denied, as well as Gambit). Fans have been wondering if Wolverine will be recast once Jackman exits the franchise, but according to Bryan Singer and producer Simon Kinberg, that’s not likely to happen.

The account of Eddie the Eagle’s inspirational flight provides fodder for the upcoming sports picture appropriately titled Eddie the Eagle. Taron Egerton, fresh off of a hot year with roles in Kingsman, Testament of Youth, and Legend, steps in to portray the quixotic athlete Edwards, and he’ll joined by Hugh Jackman as the fictitious Bronson Peary, a former great who sees potential in this upstart and agrees to coach young Eddie.
