Blackbeard is the main antagonist of the 2015 fantasy adventure film Pan, prequel to the Peter Pan story.
He was portrayed by Hugh Jackman, who also played X-24 in Logan and Vincent Moore in Chappie in his own second villain role in his cinematic career and also will portray Scar in the 2019 live-action remake of The Lion King.
He was the leader of the Pirates, and as described by his first-mate Bishop that he was the "Pirate of all Pirates", thus indicating that he was much more greedy, arrogant, and calloused amongst the Pirates of Never Land. He commanded the pirates to kidnap the children of Lamberth's Home for Boys, as well as Peter, to preform labor in the Mines of Never Land in search for Pixels or Pixie Dust for his personal gain.
Blackbeard is portrayed as of being capable to weild a gun and sword as shown in various scenes in the film. Despite appearing pleasant in his own decietful way, deep down the character was manipulative, selfish, arrogant, and shows a very abrasive attitude towards the children and his crew. He himself told the children and the miners that he shows no mercy and that he doesn't give any second chances, as seen in one of the movie scenes, when three boys (including Peter) are on the plank, he mercilessly kicked them or either jump in the plank in order for the child to bounce and jump to his death. He also killed several natives including the Chief, Princess Tiger Lily's father. Blackbeard was said to be in love with Peter's mother, Mary, but due to her sweet and loving personality the Fairy Prince took her away. Thus the result of Blackbeard's attitude driving Mary to love the Prince instead of him, which made Blackbeard produce hatred to the fairies and kills them or use them to make him young again. Thus furthering his agenda towards becomimg more sadistic than he already was. Blackbeard share several traits with Captain James Hook from Peter Pan (2003).
