Logan is set to be Hugh Jackman’s final performance as Wolverine but in a recent interview with a super-fan, the actor revealed that he would have continued to play the role if Wolverine was a member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.This isn’t breaking news. Jackman has stated multiple times over the years that he would love to join the MCU. Unfortunately it seems like Marvel and 20th Century Fox will never come together to make this a possibility.
Read the interview below:
In a perfect world, film rights aside, if you were offered the chance to be in an Avengers movie, would you be on for that? Would you be excited for it?
Hugh Jackman: If that was on the table when I made my decision, it certainly would have made me pause. That’s for sure. Because I always love the idea of him within that dynamic, with the Hulk obviously, with Iron Man but there’s a lot of smarter people with MBAs who can’t figure that out [laughter]. You never know.
What other characters or story arcs from comics, that haven’t gotten a chance to get into the movies, would you have like to have seen or seen come through?
Hugh Jackman: I don’t know. This was the one that I really thought…When I spoke with the guys who created Old Man Logan – a lot of people think, “Oh this is Old Man Logan.” And I’m like, “Well….” The inspiration for that was Unforgiven. That’s what we have in common. But there’s no Hulk babies in this one [laughter]
Hugh Jackman: At the moment, honestly, if I really did have them there, I probably wouldn’t have said this is the last. It just feels like this is the right time [to leave the character].
