Hugh Jackman still wants Wolverine to join The Avengers

05.19.2014by:

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST star Hugh Jackman recently took it upon himself to get people in frenzy again. The Wolverine actor suggested that he THE AVENGERS onscreen for some dream team action.

IGN asked him who he'd like to see the character team up:

"I would love to see him as part of The Avengers". "Because there's a great dysfunction among that team, and I think Wolverine would fit right into that. He'd like that."

And when it came to which of the Avengers he’d fight first he said:

"There's no doubt he'd get in a fight with Hulk at some point. Those two bad, rage-filled characters are going to square off at some point. It would be quite fun. I don't know how much fun to shoot it would be because I'm sure I'd be on the worst end of it, but hey, he can heal."

If I was ever an actor in a couple of superhero franchises like Hugh Jackman, every interview I ever had I would toss out ideas for crossovers and sequels. You would never be out of the spotlight! I’m not suggesting that's why Jackman said these things; I just know I would be that much of a diva.

Jackman basically said the same thing last year so here’s hoping someone is listening because I think it wold be pretty cool to see Wolverine stand with that group of heroes. He’s been playing the character of Wolverine for over 14 years and has more of less been playing with the same friends in the same park for the majority of that time. Another playground might have an Iron Man, that's all I'm saying.

Would you like to see Wolverine join The Avengers?

Make it happen make it happen!

I have a feeling Marvel is already ahead of the curve on this. I think within the next five years all of their franchises are going to join for one superly epic movie. With Apocalypse coming up in every franchise of Marvels, I don't think this is a long shot...

Interesting idea

How good is Jackman at acting like he has no legs?

Hulk movie

I've said before stand alone Hulk movies don't work. If it's a standalone Hulk movie involving Wolverine hunting him however...

I don't think Jackman is a diva at all. I think he's putting forth crossover speculations just as any commenter on a forum might; because it seems he's as big of a fan of the material as others are. I think Jackman has at least a one more X-Men movie in him, one more Wolverine, maybe two more Wolverines if they do Old Man Logan, then I think I'll be ready for a new Wolverine. B

But honestly, there doesn't seem to be any diminishment in his passion for the character, and frankly he just

But honestly, there doesn't seem to be any diminishment in his passion for the character, and frankly he just looks more and more the part as he ages, so I'll always pay to see Jackman as Wolverine. Those wishing for a reboot ought to be careful what you ask for, look what happened to Spiderman.

Definitely an awesome idea and even better one would be a whole xmen/avengers crossover. Which I have been saying to my friends for at least a year now and every body thinks its crazy and to big in scope but I disagree. People that would watch it would be followung this marvel movie universe and know the charactets so its not like you need a bunch of character development, I am all about it being close to 3 hours long, and we are about to see an xmen movie spanning different time periods with

As far as Jackman playing wolverine? I'm up for that until the end of time. He's been perfect in the role and I dont want to see it fucked up.remember when Keaton was no longer batman? Kilmer was alright actually a descent choicr I think but whoevers idea it was to put clooney in a batsuit should be publicly executed. Andi have a feeling affleck replacing Bale isv just as much a hair brained idea. Lets keep Wolverine real!

Jackman definitely seems like that much of a diva. But they've been in the same space before, I think it's a fair idea, I'd just rather see someone else as Wolverine. It's like if Nicholson just kept playing the Joker. Don't get me wrong Jackman was great for the time but I think we're long overdue to see what other actors do with it.

Not interested in Wolvie in the Avengers but I'd love to see him go toe to toe with the Punisher. Punisher shot his face off, his balls off, ran him over with a steam rolling and was going to burn him alive until an army of midgets showed up and they had to team up to stop them. Classic Garth Ennis.

Yeahp...never happening..well not atleast with Hugh as Wolvy. There would be too much disconnect, especially when there is a pair of QuickSilver and Witch in both Marvel and Fox's universe and both pairs are so different.
I for one won't buy the idea that from where Hugh's wolvy comes there is that goofy looking Quicksilver...
Maybe when in 5 or 10 years Xmen reverts back to Marvel they'll cast a new Wolvy in a Avengers 4 or maybe 5 ..

I had figured Jackman to be the kind of guy who did Wolverine for the money, but wants to do more "serious" roles. But here he is, with more appearances than any other Superhero character.

Don't forget that Sam Jackson has also played Fury in the Agents of SHIELD TV show twice... I'm pretty sure that counts.

It would definitely give way to some great dialogue such as:
Hulk: "You won't like me when I'm angry"
Logan: "Yeah, join the club, pal"

It's be so awesome. I know they are owned by different companies, and they both have a "my dicks bigger than yours" type of thing, by it'd seem like it'd be so profitable. Just the avengers vs x men. I guess with one character (Wolvie) and then all the avengers, they'd never be satisfied with how profits would be divided, with each studio thinking they deserved more. And then they wouldn't be able to just do one movie, which is all I really want. I also don't want x-men and avengers

And then they wouldn't be able to just do one movie, which is all I really want. I also don't want x-men and avengers universes to completely combine. That's way to much. DOFP and A2 and 3 have enough cut out for them with their characters. And I guess Marvel studios already have their overall plan, but man one movie would be cool. I wish Wolvie 3 would be him vs hulk (someone said that before me), and if not, fuck it, just do what those Asylum studios do and make The Amazing Bulk and have him fight Wolvie. I assume Disney/Marvel has rights over Red Hulk? Well, I never thought Sabertooth was given justice for a possible W3 film, or maybe omega red? But he has to team up with either cyclops and or gambit

That would be his send off

If he pulled it off I think that would be a great way to send Jackman off as the character.

Copyrights issue kinda prevent this from happening. Sad. But can't Fox make X-Factor movie instead? With Wolverine, X-23, Warpath, Psylocke, it should be a hit.

Those characters would be more X-force than X-factor. And they already announced that they're planning on making an X-force movie.

Civil War

The story that could handle this would be the Civil War storyline. No real need for villains and a perfect place to merge Avengers/Spiderman and Wolverine (X-men) and possibly reboot the actors and characters in the process for each studio. I know it would never happen but it would be amazing if they could pull it off.

Agreed... But no changing Spider-Mans costume to that weird thing Tony made for him.

Well in my dream version at least.

In a PERFECT comic book world, this would happen. Hopefully one day us fans get to see this happen, but I'm not holding my breath.

I mean, both franchises seem to be doing just fine without the crossover, but if there is one character that truly deserves a crossover with the Avengers, it's Wolverine (at least in my opinion and more so then the new Amazing Spider Man at this point).

Andrew Garfield has also said he hopes Spider-Man will be able to have a team-up with the Hulk at least. We can dream.

Fox will NEVER let this happen because they suck but I'd love to see him show up in The Avengers 3. I'd also like to see Garfield's Spider-Man show up in that movie as well but Sony would also NEVER let that happen.

It's not Fox and Sony who are saying no, it's Marvel/Disney.

Think about who has more to gain and loss in that deal.

Fun to think about but don't want it, Marvel has done great things on their own, hero's they liscensed out don't deserve to piggyback.

Do you want an Avengers movie that takes place in the same cinematic universe as X-Men Orgins: Wolverine?
