Sebastian Stan talked to Hugh Jackman about Wolverine in the MCU

LOGAN marked the end of a long career as Wolverine for Hugh Jackman, hanging up his claws after 17 years. However, ever since Disney bought 20th Century Fox the notion of the X-Men teaming up with the Avengers has been a topic of discussion. Would this at all change things for Jackman? Would he ever come back? Well, Winter Soldier actor Sebastian Stan had to find out.

While on a panel with Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie at the ACE Comic Con this weekend, Stan brought up how he found himself sitting next to Jackman recently. Stan didn’t give up all the details, but he did say he asked Jackman about whether the two could be working together soon – if you catch my drift.

Recently I happened to be sitting next to Hugh Jackman. I didn't know what other awkward thing I could talk about but to be like, “Am I going to see you soon?” I don't know. But he said a couple of things to me and I'll just leave it at that. Otherwise, I feel like I'm going to get into trouble with somebody.

Stan continued, talking about how Jackman mentioned that the whole Fox/Disney deal has indeed been on his mind:

I asked him because I kept thinking he said whether or not that was, Logan, was supposed to be the last Wolverine thing or whatever and he said to me, well I think he publicly said out there, which was like he's been thinking about it and it's been on his mind. So, I don't, he may be.

Jackman has said in the past he would have perhaps reconsidered stepping down as Wolverine had there been a possibility to do a movie with characters like Hulk and Iron Man. After the deal with Disney, Jackman commented on the matter again but reaffirmed that his time as the clawed character is done.

Fans have been losing their marbles over all the possibilities that can come out of the Fox/Disney deal, including seeing Jackman return. But I think Jackman knows his time is done, and I agree with him. He left on such a good note, and bringing him back would undermine it all. It will be hard to imagine someone else as Wolverine, but the time will come, and now with Disney at the wheel, perhaps it will sooner rather than later.

On second thought, I take that back! Bring Jackman back, bring Jackman back! I don't like change!
