Hugh Jackman has been talking a lot about stepping away from his Wolverine role recently. It's bound to happen, but it doesn't sound like it will until he's finished with Wolverine 3. In a previous interview, the actor was asked if he would come back for the third movie, and he said "I am not signed on, but if I was a betting man, there's a good chance. Yes."
That movie may be the very last time we see Jackman kick ass as the popular comic book character. In a recent interview with SFX, the actor was asked about where he would like to take Logan in Wolverine 3, and this was his reply:
"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."
He then goes on to say that they are looking at Mark Millar's Old Man Logan comic run as a possible story for the third movie.
"Of course we’re looking at Old Man Logan, because that may be the only option left at this point! [laughs] We are looking at a lot of different storylines. No one has jumped out. You can tell from my answer that we’re still working it out."
I would love to see them adapt Old Man Logan. That series is amazing, and if this is going to be Jackman's last Wolverine movie, I don't see why they wouldn't do it. I'm excited to to see what the ultimately come up with!
