Hugh Jackman teases "one last time" as Wolverine

03.28.2015

It wasn't too long ago that Hugh Jackman said that he hoped to play Wolverine until he died, but if a new photo he posted on his Instagram is any indication...his time as Wolverine may be nearing its end sooner rather than later.

 

WOLVERINE ...ONE LAST TIME. HJ

A photo posted by Hugh Jackman (@thehughjackman) on

In regards to which film could end up being his last outing as Wolverine, it's assumed that WOLVERINE 3 will be the one to send Hugh Jackman off in a blaze of glory. That film won't start shooting until next year as Jackman is busy filming EDDIE THE EAGLE and WOLVERINE 3 director James Mangold is prepping THE DEEP BLUE GOOD-BY.

It's not yet confirmed whether Hugh Jackman will be making an appearance in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, but seeing as how Jackman has appeared in every X-Men film to date...it'd be mighty strange if he didn't at least make a cameo. Could that be what he's strapping the claws on in this photo for? An appearance in DEADPOOL also isn't out of the question as it's something Jackman has said he was open to in the past. Personally, I'd like to think he just puts the claws on at home and stands in front of the mirror posing. I mean...that's what I'd do.

Who would you like to see take over the role should Jackman leave?

Man I hope someone else plays Wolverine. And someone else writes for him along with it. The character is such a bore.

Based on his role in Warrior I think Tom Hardy make for a great Wolverine if and when the torch is passed on to a new actor.

James Mangold's 'The Wolverine' was an amazing film. I can't wait to see Hugh play Wolvie one last time. I was hoping that we'd see him play the character for another 5-10 years, but I'm ok with him passing the torch to another actor after this new Wolverine film.

Sure - let's get the currently slated X-Men movies and another solo Wolverine title out of the way then reboot with a different take on the characters. First Class was a great attempt at a reboot but re-merging it with Singer's movies kind of scuppered any real chance at progress. DOFP was good, but bringing back the old cast again turns the franchise into a dead end.

Not cool, can't he play him until he dies like he previously stated. He IS Wolverine. That being said, if Jackman's reign does come to an end, I would like to see a short stocky actor take over this time. Nothing against Jackman he made the role but his tall lean muscular frame was technically not ideal for Logan. I always thought a young Harvey Keitel would of been awesome. Part of the appeal of Wolverine is him being undersized but willing to stand up to anyone including monstrous sized Hulk.

He's losing the hand, like in the Age of Apocalypse comic, in the new flick. Just letting you know...

TBH Jackman can play Wolverine as long as he wants and I'll watch. He literally IS Wolverine, no one else can be in my mind. One of the great movie characters!

I'd be fine with that....

I've loved his portrayal of the character, but at some point we need a break from X-Men movies. If they want to keep introducing side characters with their own films, fine but we are on our 6th X-Men film in the last 15 years with two casts playing the same characters, plus 3 Wolverine movies and now a Gambit film?

Seriously, know when to say when....

I don't think we need a break from X films, but from those X characters. There are just so many that are good that havent even been touched. I'd love an X Force with Psylocke (character I want to see the most next), Cable, Angel/Archangel, and Phantomex. Even Deadpool. I'd even love an age of apocalypse storyline over a bunch of films

I'd love to revisit the characters from DOFP. The future X-Men (including a grown-up Bobby Drake) were far cooler than anything we've seen since Nightcrawler (not counting the brief appearance from Quicksilver).

I think he was great. I'm also ready for another take on the character.

The original choice

Next Wolverine = Dougray Scott

Or If they want to go younger Ben Whishaw. Sure he'd have to spend hours in the gym but the pay off would worth it.

Failure to which, Josh Holloway.

Ben Winshaw? are you out of your fucking mind? Do you know what either wolverine or Winshaw look like? Thats like saying Elton John should play Roseanne.

I don't believe it.

We always get these stories of an actor claiming they're done with a role, but it never lasts. Damon said it with Bourne Ultimatum, yet he's coming back for another one. RDJ said a similar think about Iron Man except for the Avengers films, but then he got added to Civil War. Stallone said something similar about Rocky Balboa but the character will be in Creed, Unless there is a complete reboot of the x-men series, I'm sure Jackman will be back.

Correction, RDJ has only expressed that he's okay with Marvel's strategy of replacing actors as they age (probably because he intends to parlay that into a producing/directing role in the future). But he's said nothing about being "done" with the character. On the contrary, he's one of the few actors whose contract length is irrelevant, since he'll likely play Stark till they drag him kicking and screaming from the role. Hell he even volunteered to be on Agents of Shield. WILLINGLY :P

Ugh

That is a terrible image. Tbe claws look like Jackman's children made them on an Atari 2600. You can do better Wolvie.

You sound like a moron. The claws look exactly what they are suppose to look like claws. It's metal that's been carved and shaped to look like claws.

A claw is a claw. What is it you want them to look like?

Didn't he say he would play the character until he dies?!

Wtf, one month ago he said he will play Wolverine until he dies. Now he is saying one last time?

I think he's actually referring to that hand, which he will be losing in Apocalypse if they stick with the comic storyline

I can't imagine who can replace Hugh Jackman. I'd Love to see him back as Wolverine but all the activities and exercises he must keep in order to keep in Wolverine shape must be very very tiresome. Still, if he can do an Old Man version of Wolverine as a swan song, that'd be really great. As for his replacement, I can't think of one now.

It would seem to me that he would reasonably have at least 3 more times. Wolverine 3, Apocalypse, and Old Man.

The guy looks more like Wolverine as he ages. No need to replace him anytime soon.

I love Wolverine and Jackman's portrayal of him, but wolverine has been the main protagonist of most of the x-films to date (bar first class). I would really like for the character to have a bit of downtime when Jackman's done, to allow them to develop and give some much deserved attention to some of the other characters. Been re-reading a lot of classic uncanny x-men recently, and it's hit home that Storm is such an incredible character with so much depth in the comics, I really hope they give

And gimme some Psylocke soon please :)

Anthony Starr please!

He's a badass on Banshee, and he'd make a great Wolverine.

Very interesting recommendation, never even thought of him but can easily see him in the role.

I completely agree!!! He's a total badass on Banshee and I think he could rock the Wolverine Hairstyle well.

It'll be a sad day for us film fans when Jackman stops being Wolverine. I say let him keep playing the character until he doesn't want too anymore.

And as for who to take over the role after? No one.

I'm happy to see some closure coming to these characters assuming this is gong to be a real thing and I'm hoping the people in charge can see past the box office numbers and be satisfied knowing that these characters left an impact and should remain untouched for a while afterwords. Who should wear the claws next when Jackman leaves, nobody should, not for a long while, let the films have their stay.
