Hugh Jackman's Mexico visit canceled

'Wolverine' bow delayed because of swine flu outbreak

MEXICO CITY -- Even the mighty Wolverine is taking precautions when it comes to swine flu.

20th Century Fox said it has canceled Hugh Jackman's scheduled appearance in Mexico City to promote "X-Men Origins: Wolverine."

The U.S. and several other countries have warned citizens to avoid nonessential travel to Mexico, where the number of deaths blamed on the new virus has surpassed 150. Meanwhile, movie theaters in Mexico City are closed to prevent the flu from spreading.

A Mexico premiere at the National Auditorium and media events Wednesday have been canceled until further notice, 20th Century Fox representative Christina Inman said.
