Warner Bros. has released the first images of Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard in Pan, the Peter Pan origin film (via Entertainment Weekly).
In the prequel, Blackbeard is the captain of a flying ship that has been kidnapping orphans of war. One of these orphans is a boy named Peter, played by Levi Miller, who will, someday, become Neverland’s hero. Meanwhile, the man who will one day become Captain Hook, played by Garrett Hedlund, is descibred as a “dashing Indiana Jones-like figure.”
“This isn’t exactly the Neverland story you know,” says director Joe Wright.
