Movie News: Hugh Jackman Wants to Continue as Wolverine

Recent months have seen Hugh Jackman regularly talk about it being time for him to hang up the claws and step away from the Wolverine role. He even went as far as to say that after X-MEN: APOCALYPSE and a third solo Logan flick that he would more-or-less be done with Weapon X. Well, it appears he’s had a change of heart.

Speaking to IGN, it seems that the finished X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST has given Jackman new excitement. “At one point I said I was pretty sure [that a third Wolverine movie would be his last film]. But I’m less sure as it goes along. Because after seeing this movie, the whole thing feels fresher to me than ever.”

He added, “And during this movie… I don’t want to spoil anything, but it’s kind of like a clean slate. So who knows where it’s going to go. As long as I have the passion for it and the fans will have me.”

With expected appearances in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE and a third solo outing for his character, that would bring Jackman’s appearances as Wolverine to an impressive nine. Safe to say, it’ll be interesting to see where the Wolverine character is left at the end of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is released on Thursday, with X-MEN: APOCALYSE confirmed for a 27th May, 2016 release. At this stage, a third Wolverine movie is pencilled in for 3rd March, 2017.
