This Is What Could Have Made Hugh Jackman Continue As Wolverine

After seventeen years, Hugh Jackman is saying goodbye to the Wolverine. Logan is set to be the actors final time playing the character and although Jackman has turned down cameo roles in Deadpool 2, he just revealed what could have made him stay on as our favorite mutant.

Thanks to Screen Rant, a Wolverine super-fan was given the opportunity to watch Logan and interview Jackman. In the interview, the fan asked Jackman if he would play Wolverine if the character joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe and his answer was enough to make us wish a deal could be struck.

“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.”

Jackman then went on to confirm that if The Avengers was an option, he wouldn’t have said this was his last time as the character.

“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].”

Hugh Jackman has voiced his hope for a crossover multiple times over the years. It certainly doesn’t seem like this is a real possibility. The X-Men franchise has never been better, meaning Fox is making to much money for any executive to happily share with Marvel Studios. But hey, we can dream.
