Is Hugh Jackman Already Done With Wolverine?

So, about Hugh Jackman retiring from Wolverine … it may have happened already.

The actor spoke with MTV at the Toronto International Film Festival about his time playing the wildly popular mutant, and revealed it’s entirely possible his time as Wolverine is already over now that shooting has wrapped on X-Men: Days of Future Past.

“It may be the last,” he said. “By the way, it didn’t hit me until three weeks before the end [of shooting X-Men: Days of Future Past], because we promoted The Wolverine and I came back on set with three weeks to go, and that’s when I went, ‘Well, who knows? Maybe there’s no more Wolverine. Maybe this is it. Who knows? Maybe.’ So I really made the most of those last few weeks. I enjoyed every time I put the claws on. I nicked everything off the set, so Halloween, come to me and I’ll hook you up.”

If Days of Future Past is Jackman’s swan song as Wolverine, it sounds like a pretty epic one: “I keep saying it’s like two movies in one, but with the size of it it’s really three in one. It really is going to blow people away because of the story.”

Opening May 23, 2014, director Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past also stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Halle Berry, Peter Dinklage, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Daniel Cudmore, Lucas Till, Omar Sy, Booboo Stewart, Fan Bingbing, Adan Canto and Josh Helman.

    Well, here’s hoping DoFP is good so he goes out on a high note.

    I said it before, this is Fox going for broke with the X-Men franchise. This is Fox’s attempt at a Avengers level big story. If it fails Fox will let the rights lapse back to Marvel.

    Kinda hope that happens, also at the same time I don’t. I mean, it’d be amazing to see an AvX event in the MCU.

    Not surprised. This dude has been wolverine for 13 years. He’s turned in performance after performance, and even when the script, direction, etc. were all garbage, he made the character real and awesome. He’s earned a lot of good will from the fan community, and I for one congratulate him on what he’s accomplished. I’m looking forward to one last outing for him in the role, and wish him luck in whatever else he chooses to do. As for Wolverine, I see no reason why we couldn’t love somebody else in the role, although I suspect they’ll give us a break from the character after Jackman exits.

    Just can’t see it being over for Jackman until we see the classic Wolverine vs. Hulk…(crossing my fingers)

    That is gonna happen like Sony’s gonna let the rights of Spider-Man lapse. Its a never gonna happen dude. Not with what Fox makes off the franchise each time. Its not Avengers money , sure. But its nowhere bad for em.
