Hugh Jackman would've kept playing Wolverine if he'd joined The Avengers

Hugh Jackman would've kept playing Wolverine if he'd joined The Avengers

So even if Jackman isn't planning on suiting up as Wolverine again, we're betting on at least one more appearance before Reynolds finishes his run playing Deadpool.

Logan isn't released until next Wednesday (1st March) in the United Kingdom, but it is already getting rave reviews from critics who were at last week's Berlin screening (where we reviewed the film), and from other parts of the film world too - it's quite remarkable.

In a live Facebook question and answer session created to promote the upcoming Logan, Hugh Jackman was asked whether he's at all willing to return to his most iconic role for a team-up movie with Ryan Reynolds' popular Deadpool character.

While Disney/Marvel and Sony worked out their differences on that issue to collaborate on a new series of Spider-Man movies, it seems that studio Fox (home to the X-Men and Fantastic Four) never will.

At the moment, honestly, if I really did have [the other Marvel characters] there, I probably wouldn't have said this is the last. As I've lived with that idea over the past few days, I thought: "'Yeah, it's absolutely right that we should both of us just move on now.' The franchise won't die [without us]".

First, let's state the obvious.

In a role that wasn't even his to begin with, because Dougray Scott was originally cast before dropping out to do Mission: Impossible 2 instead, Jackman it his own, and its now nearly impossible to imagine anyone else in the part. He should not be judged in any way shape or form for wanting to move on, no matter what you think about the quality of the more recent X-films. She's played in Logan by Dafne Keen, but it remains to be seen exactly how closely the big screen version of the character will stick to the source material.
