Hugh Jackman again unsure about playing Wolverine again after 'Days of Future Past'
Make up your mind, Bub.
Is Hugh Jackman really going to hang up his Wolverine claws?
In a new interview, the Aussie actor reveals that despite earlier reports, he may not be returning as the hero again after next April's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" hits theaters.
Not long ago, it was reported that Jackman was ready to suit up one more time for another solo film with "The Wolverine" director James Mangold, just weeks after the Aussie actor said he was "nearing the end" of his time as the Marvel mutant.
In addition to the "Wolverine" sequel, Fox is also developing the spin-off "X-Force" and the just-announced "X-Men: Apocalypse," either one of which could potentially feature Wolverine -- but perhaps without Jackman.
"I don’t know whether or not I will do this next movie," he admitted to Vanity Fair. "I am really proud of this movie ["The Wolverine"] and I am excited to develop something with Jim Mangold from the beginning because that is a great ride. That’s exciting, to see what we come up with but I have a very high expectation of what it would need to be and if it doesn’t reach those, I won’t be doing it."
At 45 years old -- and having played him in no less than 7 films already -- Jackman may actually keep his word and retire the muttonchops -- but Fox isn't likely to let that get in the way of more Wolverine/X-Men films.
