Hugh Jackman has said on multiple occasions that he is done playing Wolverine, after the perfect send-off that was Logan. Before Logan’s release, however, Jackman said last February that he would only reconsider retirement if an agreement could be reached to allow Wolverine to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe:
“If that was on the table when I made my decision [to quit], it certainly would have made me pause. That’s for sure. Because I always love the idea of him within that dynamic, with the Hulk obviously, with Iron Man but there’s a lot of smarter people with MBAs who can’t figure that out [laughs]. You never know.”
Now, in 2018, a current MCU actor has shared a story about chatting with Jackman concerning him returning as Wolverine in the MCU, though Jackman’s answer was more coy than definitive.
We Got This Covered shares that Sebastian Stan, who plays Bucky aka The Winter Soldier in the MCU, told the story about an exchange he had with Jackman:
“Recently I happened to be sitting next to Hugh Jackman. I didn’t know what other awkward thing I could talk about but to be like, ‘Am I going to see you soon?’ He said a couple of things to me and I’ll just leave it at that. Otherwise, I feel like I’m going to get into trouble with somebody.”
“I asked him though because I kept thinking whether or not Logan was supposed to be the last Wolverine thing or whatever and he said to me he’s been thinking about it and it’s been on his mind. So, I don’t know, he may be.”
So, maybe we will see Hugh Jackman appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after all, though I still wouldn’t bet on it.
