Fox Rebooting X-Men? Hugh Jackman Teases Last Wolverine Movie
Despite stating a month ago he would like to play Wolverine as long as possible, Hugh Jackman has just posted a rather interesting message on Instagram.
"Wolverine... One last time," Jackman stated.
It's unknown if the statement is in regards to X-Men: Apocalypse or the sequel to The Wolverine, but it suggests Hugh Jackman is finished with Wolverine following his next appearance.
Jackman hasn't been confirmed for Apocalypse as of yet, but has been said to be a part of The Wolverine 2 along with Patrick Stewart.
Jackman's cryptic message lends credence to Fox possibly rebooting the X-Men franchise and bringing the characters into the here-and-now (as the movies are set within the past).
Jennifer Lawrence just said that X-Men: Apocalypse will be her last X-Men movie as well, and Nicholas Hoult also said X-Men: Apocalypse is the last X-Men movie that he is signed on for, but did add he would like to keep making them.
Update: Director James Mangold has confirmed the tease is for The Wolverine 2.
X-Men: Apocalypse has a May 27, 2016 release; The Wolverine 2 is due out in 2017.
