All good things must come to an end, and it looks as though a major chapter in superhero cinema is verging on conclusion. During a recent interview with MTV, rather casually mentioned that his upcoming turn as the adamantium-filled super-badass Wolverine in 's X-Men: Days Of Future Past might be his last. Click through to the video for the full interview. In the meantime, here's the text:
It may be the last. By the way, it didn't hit me until three weeks before the end [of shooting 'X-Men: Days of Future Past], because we promoted 'The Wolverine' and I came back on set with three weeks to go, and that's when I went, 'Well, who knows? Maybe there's no more Wolverine. Maybe this is it. Who knows? Maybe.So I really made the most of those last few weeks. I enjoyed every time I put the claws on. I nicked everything off the set, so Halloween, come to me and I'll hook you up. I keep saying it's like two movies in one, but with the size of it it's really three in one. It really is going to blow people away because of the story.
Obviously there's no way to know for sure whether DoFP will be Jackman's last at bat for team Wolverine, as even he isn't 100% sure, but it does get me thinking. Jackman is not getting any younger and it can't be getting any easier to take on the physical challenges of portraying this character. It was really only a matter of time before he hung up his claws. It might actually be a tremendous boost to this character to have some fresh blood injected on screen.
So here's the question, if Jackman is really out...who should replace him? Leave your suggestion in the comments below.
