Hugh Jackman Struggles With a Sword in 'Pan' Blooper

The sword is not mightier than the adamantium claw.

It’s a lesson Hugh Jackman learned while filming a scene in “Pan” that saw his sword-wielding pirate Blackbeard struggle to slice through a cloth screen in a new blooper clip from the forthcoming Disney movie he shared Monday on Instagram.

“Was gifted with bloopers from the making of @panmovie,” he captioned the outtake clip. “There’s a treasure chest of these sensationally embarrassing moments! Joe Wright you are genius! #PanMovie #DiscoverYourNeverland”

Known to slice through any object like a knife to warm butter with his Wolverine character’s indestructible set of metal claws, as pirate Blackbeard his rusty weapon falls short.

“Pan,” the live-action, very grim re-imagining of Disney’s 1953 animated film stars youngster Levi Miller in the titular role–fulfilling a prophecy as the boy leader who will bring the downfall of Jackman’s villain Blackbeard. Costarring Garrett Hedlund as Hook and Rooney Mara as Tiger Lilly, the action-adventure, opens Oct. 9.
