After the previous promotional images and trailers for Joe Wright’s slightly-delayed Pan movie, you probably don’t even need to see these new character posters to have an idea of what they’d look like. But here they are anyway, in all their vibrant, well-lit and detailed glory. And wouldn’t you know it, but Hugh Jackman is still rocking that sick cartoon villain mustache.

On the master list of characters who deserve exhausting origin stories that go into every single detail about how they came to be, Peter Pan is somewhere near the very bottom. So we can get all smug and dismissive of the new Pan trailer, which has its fair share or eye-rolling moments, or we can get excited that director Joe Wright has a new film on the horizon and hope for the best.

The trailers and images from Joe Wright’s Pan haven’t exactly inspired confidence in the upcoming prequel/origin story of everyone’s favorite lost boy (sorry, Kiefer Sutherland). Just about the only promising aspect is the involvement of Wright, who has a pretty great track record with previous films like Hanna and Atonement. But now Warner Bros. is giving us a little more time to get excited for the film by pushing the release date back by five months.

Director Joe Wright beefed up his upcoming Peter Pan movie, 'Pan,' with some well-known celebs, from Hugh Jackman to Garrett Hedlund to the newly cast Rooney Mara, but for the title role, he wanted some fresh blood -- and he got it! Young actor Levi Miller landed the role of the most famous crow-calling, pirate-grappling, high-flying kid from Neverland.

"Hook! Hook! Give us the Hook!" comes to mind when thinking of the infamous pirate Captain James Hook, played famously by Dustin Hoffman in the Robin Williams-led 'Hook' film of the early '90s. Of course, there's also Jason Isaacs' Hook from the 2003 film, but now director Joe Wright ('Anna Karenina') is helming a new Peter Pan tale for Warner Bros., and word on the street is that Garrett Hedlund from 'Tron' is up to take over as the new Captain.

Hugh Jackman has made intimations that he might be getting tired playing Wolverine, even with 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' 'X-Men: Apocalypse' and 'The Wolverine 2' all being worked on. Perhaps the best way to liven things up is to play a villain for a change, and that might be what he does next as he's in talks to join Joe Wright's Peter Pan update/origin film 'Pan' as the villainous Captain Blackbeard.
