Hugh Jackman is Blackbeard in first images from ‘Pan’

NBC's “Peter Pan Live!” isn't the only tale of the boy who never grew up coming in the next 12 months.  Warner Brothers is currently hard at work at an origin story for the character, and today we've gotten the first set of images.

Front and center here in the images first published by Entertainment Weekly is Hugh Jackman, who leads the cast as the villainous Captain… Blackbeard.  Yes, not Hook, Blackbeard.  Hook is present in the movie (though not in these images) and is played by Garrett Hedlund.  The other face you do see in the pictures below is that of Levi Miller, who is playing Pan himself.

“Pan,” due out July 17, 2015, is directed by Joe Wright.  It also stars Amanda Seyfried and Rooney Mara. 

Tell us what you think – are you done with origin stories or are you intrigued by these first images?
