The Return Of Wolverine
Recently, Hugh Jackman, the actor famous for the portrayal of the clawed mutant anti-hero Wolverine, opened up on the matter regarding the inevitable return of the character to the silver screen. Jackman hung up the claws earlier this year, after Logan and the seventeen years run as the character.
While making an appearance on Lorraine Kelly’s ITV breakfast show to promote his latest movie The Greatest Showman, Jackman spoke on the mutant’s return in the future X-Men films. He also joked that he still dresses up as Wolverine to get his kids to do their homework,
“He’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!”
Comparison With The Batman and James Bond
Jackman also went on to liken the role of Wolverine to Batman and James Bond. The roles have seen many actors take on the role of the caped crusader and the iconic British spy,
“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.”

After seventeen years in the X-Men film franchise as Wolverine, Jackman exited the role with the critically-acclaimed Logan this past March. The R-rated movie saw an older Logan on the run from the Reavers in 2029 as he protects and helps Laura Kinney aka X-23 to escape from the clutches of Transigen program.
