Will ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Be Hugh Jackman’s Last Movie as ‘The Wolverine’?

The actor says he cherished the last few weeks on set, because he isn’t sure if or when he will return to the screen as Logan.

Hugh Jackman hints that Wolverine may be done after X-Men: Days of Future Past
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.

"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."

X-Men: Days of Future Past was released May 23rd, 2014 and stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page. The film is directed by Bryan Singer.

    @undeadslayer4 Like RDJ for Iron Man, Jackman really owned that role. He was the perfect choice really and I didn't even know who he was when the original X Men came out.

    But Wolverine is one of my least fav X Men ( I know that is blasphemy) because like they seem to be doing with Tony Stark, they really overused his character. I loved First Class because of the real world background setting and because it gave other X Men a chance to shine.

    don't get me wrong, I love wolverine (im an X Men junkie). I just feel he has been overused.

    Jackman is probably just tired of the character doing it back to back. He can do a few other projects and I bet he'll be back. He said in the press for Wolverine that he has been working all these years to make his body look like The Wolverine. I don't think he'd go to that trouble just to stop.

    The X Men franchise will be just fine without him.

    I think he should be Wolverine one more time after X-men Days of Future past. And one more stand alone wolverine film that should be R rating and that well have Logan's Kids in it and fighting Omega red and his son Daken

    Uh-huh! Did hugh Jackman said that he would like to be in the avengers sequels and have a crossover in the series? Cause I doubt that 20th century Fox is gonna let mr. Jackman go, since he's a money maker, and that fans only knows him as Logan. So lets wait and see.

    I think that Wolverine/Jackman deserves to have a good, big R rating solo movie for last time. Maby Omega red battle.

    Jackman is great as Wolverine but he has been at it for over a decade and it is time to say goodbye.

    I'd be okay with it. He could use a break.

    He's played it like a Bond character so it is possible.

    I really hope it is. I mean I could rant about this. But I'm not. This was a actor and character we will neer forget. But I would hope for this to be the last movie. As much as Wolverine can live forever in the comic universe. The movies needs to come to end. In witch I mean strictly Wolverine films.

    @therealGoku I agree with first two. But The Wolverine was not horrible. In fact, compared to the others, it was GREAT. Now there was some issues I had. 1, was how they ended with Silver Samurai as the old man. Maybe it set up for the hurt "ninja" guy who was the girls friend to take up the suit for justice. But still. 2, I also didn't like how they had a little known mutant to be a major player villian. The Viper was not big in comics. But she did fit the story for what it needed. The movie was to be more story driven, than eye candy of super powers which is what Origins ended up being, and X-3. As a comic reader of about 25 years, (I am 33, before I read them I just looked at the pictures, lol); I have to say the story was great.

    - Xmen origins ... MEGA TRASH
    -Xmen 3 .... Writer f*cked up the story
    - the wolverine was horrible... Didn't live up to any of the promises

    I say retire. It's not Hugh's fault he did great. Writers and directors f*cked up the characters and story beyond repair

    I don't want him back for Logan besides we need a rest from the character. The films I've seen don't seem to do the character justice.

    I watched Les Miserables last night and enjoyed Hugh's portrayal, weakest link in it is still Anne. Can't believe she won an award for it,
    the priest singing was off key as well.

    THIS LOGAN'S FUTURE PAST seems like a reality. I mean, it's obvious that Jackman enjoys playing as Wolverine but so did Sean Connery as Bond. I think it will be hard to see anyone else as Wolverine other than him. There is always a stopping point. Besides there are some other awesome mutants that could use some story expanding
