Hugh Jackman To Play Wolverine “One Last Time”
Hugh Jackman revealed Saturday (March 28) that he will reprise his role as Wolverine one final time.
The 46-year-old took to Instagram, posting a photo of his hand with the Marvel character's signature claws, along with the caption: "WOLVERINE ... ONE LAST TIME."
With the revelation, it seems Jackman will likely not play Wolverine in X-Men: Apocalypse, since the sequel to The Wolverine spinoff serving as his last appearance. It's set for release in March 2017.
Jackman first played the mutant in 2000's X-Men, when he took over the role from Dougray Scott who sustained an injury. He's since played Wolverine seven times, including two solo films, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine.
It's unclear if he'll make cameos in Apocalypse and/or Deadpool.
