Hugh Jackman compares Wolverine to Bond and Batman
"He'll come back, just not with me," he said, via Digital Spy. "Well, except on Saturday nights at my house. I dress up!
"When my kids are not doing their homework, I dress up and the claws come out. I just have to do that [raise an eyebrow] with the claws and it works!”
Further commenting on other actors playing the mutant in the future, Jackman added: "Definitely someone else will play the role [of Wolverine], it's a great role.
"You know, it's like a Bond or it's like a Batman, those kinds of roles. Other people will play him for sure.”
One obvious replacement for Wolverine is Dafne Keen’s Laura Kinney — better known as X-23 in the comics — who appeared in Logan. Should the X-Men series take place after Logan, Laura taking up the Wolverine name would be excellent.
However, with X-Men: Dark Phoenix and Deadpool 2 apparently taking place on different timelines, perhaps we should just expect another Jackman-like person to take over.
Meanwhile, the first trailer for The Showman, Jackman’s next major musical project, was released online, co-starring Zac Efron.
