Hugh Jackman may be back as Wolverine.
At least, he’s thinking about it…
During an appearance at ACE Comic Con, Avengers star Sebastian Stan revealed that he recently caught up with Hugh Jackman… and the conversation quickly turned to Wolverine.
“I didn’t know what other awkward thing I could talk about, but to be like, ‘Am I going to see you soon?’” he revealed. “I don’t know, but he said a couple things to me and I’ll just leave it at that. Otherwise, I think I’m going to get into trouble.”
Thankfully, he didn’t exactly leave it at that.
“I asked him cause I kept thinking whether or not he said Logan was supposed to be the last Wolverine thing,” he added. “He said to me what’s probably been said out there that he’s been thinking about it and it’s on his mind. So, I don’t know.”
Will Hugh Jackman return as Wolverine?
Well, we don’t exactly know… and neither, it seems, does Sebastian Stan. But it certainly sounds as though Jackman is considering his position. After all, he’s long been trying to get The Avengers and X-Men together on the big screen.
Now that the Fox / Disney deal is in motion, that could well happen.
And I’d hate to think Jackman missed the boat.
Unfortunately, I get the feeling that even if this is on the cards, it’s not going to happen for a long while yet. For one thing, Marvel’s upcoming slate is pretty packed until 2020, and with the X-Men still not a part of the MCU, it would be disingenuous to shoehorn them into one of the upcoming Avengers movies.
Especially as we have no idea what’s going to happen in them yet.
But could the upcoming Infinity War lay the groundwork for bringing these universes together… and could that include Hugh Jackman leaping into the fray as Wolverine?
For now, we’ll have to wait and see. But it’s an intriguing possibility.
