Making kids dreams come true is sometimes easier than you would think. Heck, if I got to meet the man with Adamantium bones I think I would be living out a dream myself. That’s exactly what happened when 9-year-old Domenic was invited on the “Kyle & Jackie O Show” to talk to the hosts about living with cystic fibrosis. During their conversation the topic of comics came up and it wasn’t long before the con was in play.
The hosts steered the talk towards the character of Wolverine, Domenic’s favorite, and then asked him if he would like to talk directly to Hugh Jackman himself on the phone. Without hesitation the young fan dove into a line of questioning as soon as Jackman was on the line. It was then that Domenic asked Jackman about his favorite Wolverine pose.
His response was, “Hang on a sec, mate because I’m going to find a really cool way to show you.”
Wolverine himself then burst into the room and gave the boy the best surprise of his life. It was all part of a dream come true meeting organized by the Make-a-Wish Foundation. At the end Jackman then gave Domenic some passes to a show he is in and the two are now friends for life! Watch the video to see Domenic’s awesome reaction at the moment of his surprise.
Who knew Wolverine was such a friendly guy! Actually, Hugh Jackman is pretty well known for his charity work and dedication to his fans. It’s always awesome though to see when such larger than life celebrities take the time for their fans. What do you think about Jackman’s surprise visit? Please share your thoughts and the story with your friends and family!
