Hugh Jackman reveals why he returned to play Wolverine after seven years

Ahead of the release of the movie Deadpool & Wolverine, Hugh Jackman, who reprised his character from the X-Men series after seven years, shared with Rotten Tomatoes the reason behind his decision to finally return.

I was on my way. I was just driving, and literally, just like a bolt of lightning, came this knowing, deep in my gut, that I wanted to do this film with Ryan for Deadpool and Wolverine to come together. And I swear to you, when I said I was done, I really thought I was done.

The actor added that ever since he watched Deadpool, he had thought that it would be interesting to get the two characters together. He added that he knew that fans wanted it, and ever since he put on the claws, fans have talked about the two of them coming together on screen.

Fans are thrilled to witness the magic of Shawn Levy, Hugh Jackman, and Ryan Reynolds on-screen. On the one hand they are excited for Deadpool & Wolverine, and on the other, they have also been looking for updates pertaining to the fourth installment. In an interview with Total Film, the director shared he’s keen on getting Tom Holland for the next. He explained,

The thing about Deadpool is that I think he makes everything more interesting because of his audacity. But boy, I’d love to see Deadpool and Spidey. That’s a movie I’d love to make. I feel like Tom Holland would run circles around everyone else.

Producer Wendy Jacobson suggested she’d like to see She-Hulk villain Titania alongside Deadpool. She explained that the character is hilarious, razor-sharp, and can do improv. She mentioned that Titania seems like a character who can work well alongside Reynolds’ Deadpool.

Wolverine fans are not happy with the probable recasting

It took Hugh Jackman years to finally agree to appear as Wolverine for Deadpool & Wolverine, and now, the news about the director pushing Spider-Man for the next part of the movie has disappointed the fans. One of the users shared the new pictures released from the movie and wrote, ‘I see pictures like this, and it makes me understand why they are hopelessly holding onto Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine for as long as they can.’

Another user pointed out that sometimes some actors just own the characters they have played. They mentioned several examples, like Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool, Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, Chris Evans’ Captain America, and more. They added that in a similar way, Jackman will always be Wolverine. Another X user stated, ‘It’s one of the most uncastable roles, Hugh Jackman is Wolverine.’

Another fan in the comments wrote, ‘If it’s not broken, don’t fix it’. While users also mentioned that Hugh Jackman genuinely loves playing the character and wants to continue to do so, a user mentioned that Jackman’s eventual replacement will have massive shoes to fill.

Cosmic Marvel on X reported that Deadpool & Wolverine will be released two days earlier in Japan, i.e., July 24th, 2024. Whereas for the rest of the world, the movie will be released on July 26, 2024.
