While doing press at the Toronto International Film Festival this week, Hugh Jackman revealed that the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past may be the last time we see the actor as Wolverine.
Hugh Jackman hints that Wolverine may be done after X-Men: Days of Future Past
"It may be the last. By the way, it didn't hit me until three weeks before the end [of shooting X-Men: Days of Future Past
], because we promoted The Wolverine
and I came back on set with three weeks to go, and that's when I went, 'Well, who knows? Maybe there's no more Wolverine. Maybe this is it. Who knows? Maybe.' So I really made the most of those last few weeks. I enjoyed every time I put the claws on. I nicked everything off the set, so Halloween, come to me and I'll hook you up."
20th Century Fox hasn't announced a sequel to this summer's The Wolverine, which has earned $361 million at the worldwide box office, so there may be some truth in what the actor is saying.
When asked if Logan in X-Men: Days of Future Past is affected by the events of The Wolverine, the actor had this to say.
"Yeah, even more than in X-Men 3
, when he was reluctant to becoming a member of the team. Now he's owning that warrior within him, owning that Wolverine nature. Everything is so cataclysmic at the beginning of that movie, it's all hands on deck, and he's certainly right there."
