'The Wolverine' was a vast improvement over 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine,' so naturally the critical success of the latest entry in the Wolverine film saga has everyone speculating on the possibility of further appearances from the berserker mutant in the franchise. While there have been rumors that star Hugh Jackman signed a multi-film deal to reprise his signature role, the actor is laughing them off.
With 'The Wolverine' currently in theaters, all eyes are on Marvel's indestructible X-Man and his iconic claws. Although the berserking mutant warrior has always appeared as a squat, hairy Canadian grump on the page and as an astoundingly fit, hairy Australian Hugh Jackman on the screen, the cosplay world doesn't care about boundaries. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the female Wolverine!
By now you’ve likely heard the rumor that Marvel is set to offer Hugh Jackman approximately $100 million to reprise his Wolverine character at least four more times beyond 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' We all love Hugh, and we all love Wolverine, but we’ve still got to ask: Is Jackman as Wolverine really worth that kind of money?
During the production of 'The Wolverine,' star Hugh Jackman constantly hinted that his time with the indestructible mutant superhero was coming to an end once he wraps the upcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' Of course, Fox wasn't going to let one of their most valuable commodities go without a fight, so the big question was how big of a check they were going to cut to try and keep Jackman.
Now, we have an idea and it's the kind of deal that will make your modest bank account roll over and weep.
