Before the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Hugh Jackman said that he was pretty positive that he wouldn’t be playing Wolverine much longer. But now that the actor is appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse and starring in a third Wolverine solo film — which will mark his ninth time playing the hero on screen — he seems to have changed his tune. Jackman says he wants to play Wolverine forever, and with that attitude and his massive appeal, Fox just might let him.

Yesterday, Sir Patrick Stewart revealed that he would not, as was widely suspected, be returning for ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’. He did, however, tease his involvement in the next ‘Wolverine’ movie saying, “we have been talking about a Wolverine movie, which would team Hugh Jackman and myself together.” He offered no further details, so we took this rumor straight to the man himself, Wolverine, and asked Hugh Jackman for some details.

We spoke to Hugh Jackman earlier today for his upcoming movie ‘Chappie’ (we’ll have much more on that movie soon), and as we were making small talk, we asked Mr. Jackman whether he had heard the news yet about Marvel and Sony Pictures coming to terms on an agreement that would allow Spider-Man to crossover into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He had not. He was very surprised.

Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine in the 'X-Men' movies for so long that it's hard to imagine anyone else in the role at this point. Heck, it's hard to believe that he wasn't even the first choice for the role and only nabbed it after Dougray Scott had to pull out at the last second. But before they ultimately cast a (at the time) relatively unknown Australian actor, the first 'X-Men' movie pursued one of the most famous Australian-born actors in Hollywood for the role.
Yep, Mel Gibson could have played Wolverine and concept art exists to prove it.

In case you didn't know by now (or if your mom didn't make it a point to tell you, since it's like, one of the only facts she probably prides herself on knowing about actors), Hugh Jackman has some musical theater chops. Oh, you didn't see 'Les Miserables'? The 'Wolverine' and 'X-Men' star recently took that talent to BBC Radio 1 to perform a cover of the 'Les Mis' song "Who Am I," repurposed with lyrics about his on-screen alter ego, Wolverine, and the results are, well, okay, they're pretty charming.

'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.
