Jackman: “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.”
Wolverine 3 begins shooting in early 2016 and Jackman is set to appear in one or two more times before his farewell. Hugh Jackman, who has played the iconic claw-wielding mutant a record seven times, and will be missed on the future of Fox’s beloved X-Men franchise.
