Hugh Jackman Reveals The Only Way He Can Return As WOLVERINE

Marvel’s Logan was released earlier this year, and so far, in my opinion, out of all of the comic book movies released this year – it was my favorite. That’s not to say that Wonder Woman and Spider-Man: Homecoming weren’t great, because they were, it’s just that wanting to see an R-Rated version of Wolverine was much higher on my list of priorities, and the fact that it delivered (in the opening scene nonetheless) made it even better.

If you haven’t seen Logan yet (why the hell are you even here?!), there are obvious spoilers that follow.

For those of you who are still here, you already know what happens at the end of Logan. The character dies. It was expected as Hugh Jackman revealed that it would be his final film.

In a recent interview with Digital Spy, however, he had this to say about the character returning:

[Wolverine’ll] come back, just not with me. Well, except on Saturday nights at my house. I dress up! When my kids are not doing their homework, I dress up and the claws come out [laughs]. I just have to do that [raise an eyebrow] with the claws and it works!  Definitely someone else will play the role [of Wolverine], it’s a great role. You know, it’s like a Bond or it’s like a Batman, those kinds of roles. Other people will play him for sure.

So you’re saying there’s a chance?! Well, probably not. He played the character for 17 years, and the fitness and diet regimen finally wore him down. He did, however, offer his advice on a potential replacement in an interview:

“That’s a great question. I haven’t given it a lot of thought. I’ve been asked the question a lot and I’m always like “I don’t want to make it too easy on the studio to replace me.” I’ve still got one more to do. I’m sure they’re already talking about it, that some actor out there they’ve already said “shhhh… keep it quiet but we want you next. He’s younger than me for sure, I think Tom Hardy would be great.”

Whoever they cast, I think it’s safe to say that they’ll wait a while before they do it. Though, with Fox, you never know.

    Apologies Mr. Jackman, but I gotta disagree with ya. Yes it is kinda like James Bond or Batman, but there will only ever be one person who has truly and really played that part well, sure they will find other people to portray that character, but they won’t ever do as good or even close to as good a job as the original actor that played that character. Christian Bale as Batman for instance, no one will ever even come close to bein’ that good of a Batman, and Wolverine as well, sure they probably are gonna have someone portray that character at some point, but Hugh they won’t ever do it as good as you did cus some people are born to play parts and you sir were born to be Wolverine.

      Dude are you new to comic books. Bales Batman was not the first Batman or Best Batman at all. Most fans think the first two Bale movies were great but were far from a true portrayal of Batman( or Joker) from the comics. It’s nice that youre so closed minded you believe whatever iteration you think is great is the “only” one but it’s not. That’s called hyperbole.
