Hugh Jackman has sparked talk that he may return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Wolverine! Only two years after appearing to say farewell to the character in the box office success ‘Logan,’ After Jackman shared two intriguing photographs on his Instagram Stories that hinted at his return in a future Marvel film, rumours flew.
On his Instagram Stories, the actor showed fan art of Wolverine by BossLogic, followed by an old shot of himself posing with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.
Following Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox, the studio now owns the ‘X-Men’ and ‘Fantastic Four’ film franchises. While the ‘Fantastic Four’ is rumoured to be part of Marvel’s Phase 4 release schedule, no mention of the ‘X-Men’ has been made.
According to reports on several web portals, Jackman suggested to resuming his role as Wolverine, but in an Avengers film.
If he reprises his role as the clawed mutant, he will set a new world record for the longest live-action Marvel superhero career. Hugh has played Wolverine for a total of 16 years and 228 days, tying Sir Patrick Stewart for the longest time as Professor Charles Xavier.
