Hugh Jackman really wants to retire as Wolverine
20th Century Fox has already staked out a 2017 release date for another solo Wolverine film -- following last year's "The Wolverine."
Hugh Jackman seems to believe it will be his swan song as the mutant -- that is, if he even makes it at all.
“I haven’t signed on signed on," he told SFX. "I’m genuinely at that point where unless it’s better than the last one I’m not going to do it."
Jackman started playing the character in 2000's "X-Men," and may be getting too old to convicingly play the mutant warrior who never ages.
"The Wolverine" director James Mangold has signed on to direct the as-yet-untitled film. So far no script has materialized, but the Marvel Comics legend has plenty of interesting stories that haven't been adapted yet.
"Well, of course we’re looking at 'Old Man Logan,' because that may be the only option left at this point!," Jackman said when asked if the next film will be based on an existing Marvel Comics storyline.
If Jackman does decide to make the film, he's still pretty sure he'll hang up the claws afterwards.
"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."
Meanwhile, Jackman will be seen as Wolverine for the seventh time later in "X-Men: Days of Future Past," which opens May 23.
