Is this the end of Wolverine? Hugh Jackman, who has already played the Marvel superhero in 6 films, may be retiring from the comic book movie game. The actor revealed that the recently wrapped "X-Men: Days of Future Past" could potentially be his final outing as fan favorite Wolverine, a role he first took on in 2000's "X-Men." If Jackman is indeed finished, fans will just have to look forward to the inevitable big screen reboot of the adamantium-clawed mutant.
