Logan is one of my favorite movies ever made. In fact, it’s almost a disservice to categorize it as a comic book movie, as it’s really more of a Western that just so happens to star Wolverine. Granted, while not all of Hugh Jackman’s X-Men entries were as gorgeously cinematic, his send-off was as stunning as fans of the character could’ve hoped for.
Still, despite the near-perfect farewell, Jackman has been constantly asked about tossing on the Wolverine claws once again, especially since Disney acquired 21st Century Fox, therefore paving the way for the X-Men to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
During a recent interview, Jackman was (once again) asked about a potential return to the character and his answer was largely in line with what he’s been saying since 2017: it ain’t happenin’.
“I’m hearing about this from you [Hamilton], and there’s nothing in my inbox from Kevin Feige means it’s probably, no matter what idea I came up with, not on the table,” he explained. “Let’s just be clear that, but now, I realized, before we shot Logan, I was like, we got the idea. We knew what it was going to be-ish, right? And I thought this is it. And that really helped me, it really helped knowing I was going into my last season, that it was my last season that I made the most of it. And it’s still a character I hold close to my heart. But I know it’s done.” [via Jake’s Takes]
As for when you can see Jackman, he’ll be starring in Reminiscence alongside Rebecca Ferguson and Thandie Newton, which hit theaters and HBO Max on August 20. We’ll be interviewing director Lisa Joy over on the Post-Credit Podcast, so make sure to keep an eye out for that one.
