Hugh Jackman has a huge announcement teased for this week for the Today show. What exactly that announcement is, is anyone’s guess at this point. Many fans will probably be holding out hope that the actor is announcing a return to the role of Wolverine for the MCU, but we’re not holding out hope of that happening.

As you can see, it’s a very mysterious video, and no one really knows what it is at this point. For those of you we mentioned who are holding out hope that it has something to do with a potential Wolverine return for the actor, we direct you to his comments he made earlier this week – in which he was asked about doing a potential Deadpool movie crossover:
“No, but Ryan is relentless. He keeps coming back to me in all these ways, shapes and forms. I just said, ‘You know, I just don’t think the world really wants to see Deadpool with Wolverine.’ Maybe a cameo from Deadpool? I just think it runs over it for Deadpool.”
He was also quoted as saying this back in 2017:
“The moment I had the thought, I was super charged, super excited, absolutely sure I wouldn’t play it again and very nervous, because it’s 17 years.”
That sounds pretty final to me. Maybe Ryan Reynolds talked him into doing it? At the end of the day, Logan was a good way to go out as the character, as the movie was even nominated for an Oscar in the best screenplay category. That should tell you just how good it is, as superhero type films never get nominated in those categories.
A return is still unlikely. But hey, stranger things have happened before. Consider us intrigued, for whatever Hugh Jackman has planned to announce this week.
