Actor Hugh Jackman has once again announced that he is playing The Wolverine one last time for the upcoming third stand-alone “Wolverine” movie. Appearing on “The Dr. Oz Show” yesterday, Jackman made it pretty clear he’s done with the character:
“It is my last time. It just felt like it was the right time to do it. And let’s be honest, 17 years. I never thought in a million years it would last, so I’m so grateful to the fans for the opportunity of playing it. I kind of have in my head what we’re going to do in this last one. It just feels like this is the perfect way to go out.”
It has been rumored that Jackman will have a cameo in “X-Men: Apocalypse,” but that has yet to be confirmed. It has also been previously reported that ‘Apocalypse’ and “Wolverine 3” will likely serve as the final films of Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie universe.
