Recently, Hugh Jackman expressed a desire to continue playing Wolverine until he dies — or until Fox decides his time is up. It looks like that time is fast approaching, as Jackman himself has announced that The Wolverine 2 will be his final outing as the iconic X-Men character, although whether or not he’ll appear in X-Men: Apocalypse remains uncertain.
The Wolverine 2
Considering the box office success of The Wolverine and the upcoming release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, few fans were worried about the seeming cinematic immortality (13 years is a long time!) of Hugh Jackman's take on Marvel's least-merry mutant. Still, fans will take comfort in Deadline's report that Jackman, along with The Wolverine director James Mangold, are both in negotiations to return for The Wolverine 2.
