Hugh Jackman Teases Old Man Logan For THE WOLVERINE 3; Says He’s 99.9% Sure The Next One Is His Last
Everyone was excited last year when Fox seemed to right the ship in the solo Wolverine movie department. The Wolverine, not only was a pretty good box-office success, but it also was a hit among critic and fans as well. When it was announced that Fox was moving a head with another X-Men movie, the big question was would Hugh Jackman return as Logan?
Obviously if you have been following the Days Of Future Past movie you know that Jackman is in the film. However, he still has taken a pretty staunch stance that any given X-Men/Wolverine movie could be his last. When talking about The Wolverine 3, this is no different. “I still am very ambitious for the character,” he explained. “And tonally I feel like we corrected the ship with the last one. But I feel we can still go further, in a way. If I did another one I’m 99.9% sure it would be the last, so that will inform what it is for me.”
The story is another concern for Jackman as to whether or not he would do another Wolverine film. A couple weeks ago, X-Men producer Simon Kinberg teased that they were thinking about doing doing a story that fans of the comics love. Jackman also confirmed that they are kicking the tires on it by saying, “Well, of course we’re looking at Old Man Logan.” He also went on to joke that they are looking at doing that story because, at this point, that’s the only one left. He did say that not one story has jumped out to them and screamed adapt me. Jackman went on to explain, “You can tell from my answer that we’re still working it out. I’m working with Jim Mangold, which is exciting. Jim came on board The Wolverine after Darren [Aronofsky] left, so he inherited it. And of all the things that Jim can do, one of the great things he does is develop scripts. I’m excited to see what we can come up with, but I haven’t signed on signed on. I’m genuinely at that point where unless it’s better than the last one I’m not going to do it.”
Based on all his answers from this and previous interviews, Jackman may really be getting close to hanging up the claws. He revealed that the only thing that is keeping him coming back is that each story is better than the last. So, whenever that stops being the case, you can expect to stop seeing him as The Wolverine.
