Hugh Jackman Hinted The Next 'Wolverine' Installment Will Be His Last
Hugh Jackman's recent post on Instagram stirred speculations from his followers and X-Men fanatics as to whether the actor will be retiring from his iconic Wolverine role soon.
According to The Wrap, the Australian actor posted a picture of his hands rested on the table, the other hand exposing his signature adamantium claws.
"Wolverine... one last time," as the caption goes.
Sources believed that Jackman is talking about the sequel of the 2013 Wolverine movie that is scheduled to be released in 2017 and will be directed by James Mangold.
However, MTV said that some sources also believe that Wolverine will also be included in the casting of Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse or in Deadpool (starring Ryan Reynolds).
Last year, sources have remembered the 46-year old Australian actor saying that the next Wolverine installment will be different from the previous ones.
I'd probably move it to a different visual palette. We are looking at a lot of different storylines. No one has jumped out," he said in an interview.
According to The Rollingstone, Hugh also hinted last year about his decision to retire from his role that he has been keeping for seventeen years since the first X-Men film in the 2000s.
"If I did another [Wolverine film], I'm 99.9 percent sure it would be the last, so that will inform what it is for me," he once said.
The news source further quotes earlier reports from IGN saying that the actor thinks that it is possible that his iconic role will continue with other actors playing it like what happened in the Spider-Man series.
Further, it is also said that Hugh Jackman's decision would eliminate him from taking any Marvel Universe superhero roles in the future.
Amidst speculations about the actor's retirement, sources are yet to confirm Hugh Jackman's camps.
