Last night saw Marvel announce Spider-Man will be a part of the MCU Universe first appearing in a Marvel Studios film before getting a new solo movie.

Now Hugh Jackman, who plays Wolverine for FOX, weighs in on Logan potentially joining the Marvel movie universe (via

There’s so many forces at play there, man, beyond what anyone would want. The thing I’ve always loved about the comic-book world is how the fun thing was how a writer of a comic book could just pull all these characters together and what became a Friday-night discussion of ‘it would be cool to see Batman fight Wolverine’ and bang, Monday morning they’re working on it, you know. But that’s an idealized world.

As Jackman seemingly says, any chance of Wolverine being a part of some big Marvel crossover obviously wouldn't be up to him, but the "many forces at play," - meaning the corporate executives.

Previous comments made by Jackman included he wanted to kick Robert Downey Jr.'s ass on the big screen; he said he wanted to join the Avengers and battle the Hulk, and also was optimistic about there being a shared movie universe.

Hugh Jackman is thought to be featured as Wolverine in X-Men: Apocalypse and in a sequel to The Wolverine which might see Logan teaming up with Patrick Stewart and Professor X.

Jackman will also be featured in Chappie on March 6th.
