So the Make-A-Wish Foundation put Domenic in touch with Australia's "Kyle and Jackie O" radio show as it hosted Jackman as a guest.

But while the young boy thought Jackman was going to chat with him over the phone, he was in for a surprise.

When they were on the phone, Domenic asked the actor: "What is your favorite [Wolverine] pose?"
