Hugh Jackman On Teaming Up With THE AVENGERS And A Clash With HULK

It's no secret that Hugh Jackman loves his role as Wolverine and would love to appear in more X-Men films. He has even expressed interest in teaming with the Avengers, which he briefly talks a bit more about.

Hugh Jackman is praised as being arguably one of the greatest actors to ever appear in a comic book movie, with seven appearances in FOX's X-flicks. Not only does he wish to continue with the franchise in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse and 2017's Untitled Wolverine sequel, but he also wishes he could appear in an Avengers film alongside Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, and others. This could potentially become a reality if it wasn't for X-Men being owned by a different studio. "I would love to see him as part of The Avengers," Jackman said in an interview with IGN. "Because there's a great dysfunction among that team, and I think Wolverine would fit right into that. He'd like that." Of course, a defining moment of an Avengers film with Hugh Jackman's Wolverine would be a battle between him and the Hulk. "There's no doubt he'd get in a fight with Hulk at some point," he says. "Those two bad, rage-filled characters are going to square off at some point. It would be quite fun. I don't know how much fun to shoot it would be because I'm sure I'd be on the worst end of it, but hey, he can heal." He also admitted that as far as banter goes, he'd like to face off with Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark. And in a separate interview with Spotlight Report, he was asked if he was aware of the X-Men comics in which the X-Men lived in the Australian Outbacks, Australia being Jackman's home country. He said that he never knew about those comics, and thought about the possibility of a film being made based on the story. “That’s a great idea. I’m so gonna read those, thank you for that! I’d love to film that,” said Jackman. X-Men: Days Of Future Past hits theaters this week, so make sure you get your tickets and get out to the theater!

Yeah , then he can team up with Harry Potter and the dudes from the Raid 2.
0megaDaGod - 5/19/2014, 6:29 PM
Since the rights will likely never revert, they need to find a way to make this happen
Starfox - 5/19/2014, 6:31 PM
Please Disney Make Fox an offer they can't refuse LOL. or at least try to settle on a plan to to share the rights. :)
superherofan21 - 5/19/2014, 6:31 PM
New Avengers film with Hugh Jackman and Andrew Garfield. Please make it happen.
HulkbusterNYC - 5/19/2014, 6:32 PM
Damn that would be cool as [frick] to see wolverine in the avengers
OpticBlastWins - 5/19/2014, 6:32 PM
He knows his place at least. Hulk would tear his ass up
JoJo1982 - 5/19/2014, 6:33 PM
Marvel studio should give him a chance

Actually starting to feel sorry for him
MrBlackjack - 5/19/2014, 6:34 PM
Damn, Jackman is the man.
ruadh - 5/19/2014, 6:34 PM
Man, how long has he been playing this character and only just now someone told him about the Australian period of the X-Men? That's what I feel is the last good part of the comics.
Irvin88 - 5/19/2014, 6:36 PM
Stupid film right. It's a shame these characters belong to different film studios. Smh but maybe one day
sKeemAn - 5/19/2014, 6:37 PM
Hulk vs Wolverine, live action on screen. Total fangasm!! I'm getting chills just thinking about it.
Jollem - 5/19/2014, 6:37 PM
wolverine being in a 'vengers movie might be cool. hulk being in an x-men movie would be cool, too
0megaDaGod - 5/19/2014, 6:45 PM
It is kinda sad that he's always talking about this

You can tell he'd really love to do it, but it'll likely never happen
TheTrueBatfleck - 5/19/2014, 6:46 PM


BRING IT
TheTrueBatfleck - 5/19/2014, 6:46 PM
Hulk Vs is probably the best Marvel Animated movie IMO. Specifically Hulk vs Wolverine.
batmanvsuperman - 5/19/2014, 6:48 PM
Yea that would be awesome it gotta happen
Jollem - 5/19/2014, 6:48 PM
yeah, the hulk vs. wolverine part was more of a wolverine movie, tho. which was cool
dougieisrollingthejays - 5/19/2014, 6:51 PM
For all you say about hugh not really being wolverine. He's a really great guy, he's made CBM's better. Although I still think fox has just taken a dump on the xmen
Jollem - 5/19/2014, 6:52 PM
hulk vs. thing and wolverine vs. thing would be pretty sweet to see

spidey vs. juggernaut

iron man vs. a bottle of scotch

white queen vs. appropriate clothing

rooney mara vs. me in a hot tub
blackandyellow - 5/19/2014, 6:56 PM
It's a little weird to see the Hulk as a gay dude with AIDS in the HBO commercials.

sKeemAn - 5/19/2014, 7:03 PM
@batfleck

I with you on that.
batz11 - 5/19/2014, 7:04 PM
I really wished the studios would do a "thank you" to all the fans that have made these movies such huge successes...amazing way to do that, have a giant cross-over movie event...combine the Spidey, FF, X-Men and Avengers in one film, Civil War? Or even something new, who'd care...that'd probably be too much though for one movie..I'd really take just one cross-over, and yes, it would be X-Men, specifically Wolverine in the Avengers...it would be a nice gesture by Fox to let Hugh do that for his last film, as a "thank you" to him!
BANE5000 - 5/19/2014, 7:05 PM
Yeahhh Hugh, sorry thats never gonna happen...but on the upside it ever does, atleast we know Marvel Studios may give him a proper costume from the comics since FOX is still convinced comic inspired suits look to silly and unbelievable on the big screen...jokes on them huh :]
WinterSoldier33 - 5/19/2014, 7:05 PM
i would like to see magneto vs avengers
batz11 - 5/19/2014, 7:06 PM
^ now that'd be awesome
MCUfan1 - 5/19/2014, 7:22 PM
Wolverine vs Hulk would make a billion in two weeks.
JDUKE25 - 5/19/2014, 7:41 PM
Yeah if they can't do a crossover with the X-men, maybe they could at least "borrow" Wolverine.
kevberg - 5/19/2014, 7:44 PM
yeah thats box office gold. I dont think they'd be able to make it happen-- im sure there have to be some crazy profit sharing deal or something--and that wouldn't go down.



Of course a long time ago , the studios let there be a King Kong vs Godzilla--so there is a faint precedent.
kevberg - 5/19/2014, 7:49 PM
To be fair--The outback story was a muddled mess because of the all the crossover "EVENTS" at the time. they never really resolved that thing well. They started the Outback story, then they'd have an EVENT, then go back address the outback story--then hop a gateway portal to another EVENT, Then pick back up after and so on...

DeusExSponge - 5/19/2014, 8:14 PM
In a serious fight, would Wolverine actually stand a chance against Hulk?
Ramiel - 5/19/2014, 8:25 PM
I'd love to see Jackman and Garfield in an Avengers flick. Maybe they can help the Avengers, along with GOTG, take down Thanos.
champjohnson29 - 5/19/2014, 8:26 PM
If the X-Men, Spider-Man and Fantastic Four characters (or at least a portion of them) were written into an Avengers movie. That movie would make at least $2 billion. And if 20 years from now, a genius decides to make a Marvel vs. DC movie, that movie would make billions upon billons!
Ramiel - 5/19/2014, 8:28 PM
Deus,

Thor easily took down Wolverine, so Hulk should have no problem whatsoever.
staypuffed - 5/19/2014, 9:04 PM
BLAH BLAH RIGHTS REVERT BLAH BLAH [frick] FOX BLAH
sameoldthing - 5/19/2014, 10:00 PM
Someday it WILL happen..we may all be old as shit or dead as dirt,but these characters will be onscreen together one day.
ISleepNow - 5/19/2014, 10:36 PM
The crossover between studio franchises that I'd love to see would be a scene between Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark and Peter Dinklage as Bolivar Trask
JediPhilosopher - 5/20/2014, 12:47 AM
A bigger universe is a better one imo. It should be able to happen. That people don't have the freedom to do so is an indicator that something is wrong in government thinking about these things.
JediPhilosopher - 5/20/2014, 12:53 AM
A fight purely between Hulk and Wolverine would be pretty one-sided.
billnye69 - 5/20/2014, 5:04 AM
I'd pay money for Wolverine to never be in another movie.
Ruhail - 5/20/2014, 5:10 AM
Won't happen.
