Hugh Jackman changes his mind about retiring as ‘Wolverine’


Hugh Jackman, who has played Wolverine in seven X-Men movies, has suggested recently that he might depart the role after Wolverine 3. However, it seems now that he is open to doing even more movies.

Speaking to Collider, Jackman said: ”It’d be great to leave people wanting more and also great to leave on your own terms rather than getting that phone call, ‘Now listen, Hugh, thank you so much for all you’ve done’…”

But he also added: ”I’m enjoying this more than ever. Right now I don’t want to leave and as long as it keeps going in this direction I probably won’t.

”But I’ve made that promise to you, it’s not something I will stick around at and stay at if I feel it’s dropping off or if I don’t feel that urge to go and do it, because I know there’s 10 million actors out there who would love to play the part!”

    I don’t mind Wolverine, but I wish he would take more of a backseat in the X-Men films. Wolverine was the hero in the first film, although Jean saved everyone in the second, the story was still revolving around Wolverine and his past, he was the hero in the third and playing the X-Men savior in the forth. Wolverine overload.

    Sean Connery was Bond for a long time as Roger Moore was. Maybe Hugh wants to continue because he enjoys the work and this film renewed his faith.
    They focus on Logan too much, there isn’t an i in team.
    Thats why Joss Whedon would also be good for it as well.

    So long as it feels like he is choosing to play the character out of passion and not for the money. And so long as his age doesnt catch up to him, i don’t mind him being Logan.
    Well maby let it catch up and then give us old man logan as a retirement pressent 😀
    All the talk about his height and such realy can’t gt me going, if you want the comic book logan.. read a comic 😉

    what hes saying is… “i wanna be, i’m gonna be your “Wolverine” for as long as i can. or for as long as the fans want me to be. i wanna do what Robert Englund did with freddy after all those yrs. between now and then. i dont really know what my future holds for me but im gonna take it 1 step at a time, “Logan” is not hanging his claws up yet.
