It's once again stated by Hugh Jackman that his days as Wolverine are numbered.

Talking with SFX, Jackman says he's 99% sure that he is done after the sequel to The Wolverine - if he does it.

When questioned about where he wants to go with the character, Jackman responded:

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.

Jackman continues, again with mention that the script for the sequel needs to be right, and he says better than The Wolverine. Jackman also notes that he is not signed on to the sequel.

I’m excited to see what we can come up with, but I haven’t signed on signed on. I’m genuinely at that point where unless it’s better than the last one I’m not going to do it.

If the script is as good? Hm. I don’t know if that will get me across the line, man. I think it has to be better. I can still see where we can improve on the last one. I love the intimacy of that story, I liked the small stuff, I liked that it was a little unexpected. I don’t want to get into specifics, because it just upsets people, but there are certain parts of that story where I felt we were predictable. And I don’t think you need to do that with Wolverine. What’s exciting is that you can make it a more interior story, and people actually prefer that. And that was good to show and convince everyone – especially everyone who greenlights the movies!

Hugh Jackman can next be seen as Wolverine o May 23rd when X-Men: Days Of Future Past gets released.
