Wolverine 3 to be Hugh Jackman’s last film as Wolverine

xmenorigins-wolverineHugh Jackman has confirmed on Dr. Oz that Wolverine 3 will be the last time that Hugh Jackman will play the iconic character of Wolverine. Wolverine 3 is set to come out in 2017 and the actor explained quite perfectly why he is done with his most popular role.

“This will be my last one,” he stated. “It is my last time,”

“It just felt like it was the right time to do it. And let’s be honest, 17 years. I never thought in a million years it would last, so I’m so grateful to the fans for the opportunity of playing it.” He then said, “I kind of have in my head what we’re going to do in this last one. It just feels like this is the perfect way to go out.”

We still are not sure if he will be in X-Men: Apocalypse, but based on his past roles, Wolverine tends to pop up here and there. Hopefully he’ll pop in Deadpool as well, but there still hasn’t been any confirmation.

Many rumors have circulated that the final Wolverine film would be based on The Death of Wolverine or Old Man Logan. Jackman has stated he’s interested in filming the latter.

The Death of Wolverine follows his story where a virus has caused his healing factor to burn out which allows all his enemies to go after him. During the time Logan comes to terms with his past and all the decisions he ever made.

Old Man Logan, the more popular of the two and written by Mark Millar, follows Logan, who is now family man in a dystopian future (50 years later) where the bad guys won causing him to retire. A now blind Hawkeye, a popular theme among Hawkeye comics, asks Logan for help traveling across the country to make a delivery as they run into friends and enemies from the past just so Logan can pay his rent to the Hulk Family.
