Hugh Jackman Says He's "99.9%" Sure WOLVERINE 3 Will Be His Last Time Playing Logan

Of course, Jackman has said similar in the past..but while speaking to SFX he comes across like he might just mean it this time. Also, he reveals that he and director Jim Mangold are looking at the Old Man Logan arc for possible plot inspiration for Wolverine 3.


We know that James Mangold is on board for another solo Wolverine outing, but the man who would reprise that role for a record eight time is still insisting that he hasn't signed on the dotted line yet. He does sound pretty positive about it however, and while speaking to SFX magazine Jackman responds to a question about where he'd like to take the character by admitting that if he does return, it may well be his last time donning the claws and sideburns. "I don’t know yet. We’re talking it through. I still am very ambitious for the character. And tonally I feel like we corrected the ship with the last one. But I feel we can still go further, in a way. If I did another one I’m 99.9% sure it would be the last, so that will inform what it is for me." The Aussie actor also says he's pretty sure the next flick would not be set in Japan, and most interestingly names Mark Miller's Old Man Logan run as a possible plot for the third movie. "Of course we’re looking at Old Man Logan, because that may be the only option left at this point! [laughs] We are looking at a lot of different storylines. No one has jumped out. You can tell from my answer that we’re still working it out." Obviously it'd have to be a pretty loose adaptation of that story, considering the majority of supporting characters are under the Marvel Studios umbrella!
