Hugh Jackman is done suiting up as Wolverine even with Disney on the verge of owning the rights to Fox catalog of heroes. During the press junket for The Greatest Showman, the Australian actor who played Logan over the last 17 years spoke to Collider about the possibility of joining the MCU.
“It’s interesting because for the whole 17 years I kept thinking that would be so great, like I would love to see, particularly, Iron Man and the Hulk and Wolverine together. And every time I saw an Avengers movie I could just see Wolverine in the middle of all of them like punching them all on the head. But it was like, “Oh well, that’s not gonna happen,” and it was interesting just when I first saw that headline — it was just the possibility of it and who knows what’s gonna happen, obviously — I was like, “Hang on!” But I think, unfortunately, the ship has sailed for me, but for someone else I would like to see Wolverine in there.”
Previously Jackman admitted that he would only return if Wolverine was in an Avengers or Hulk movie. “On the table when I made my decision [to stop playing Wolverine], it certainly would have made me pause.” said Jackman “That’s for sure.”
Fans can dream, but it doesn’t seem like Jackman wants to return to the claws anytime soon.
