Hugh Jackman heavily hints at MCU Wolverine’s potential return
The internet crashed yesterday as they took a look at Hugh Jackman’s Instagram story, which featured a pair of images, Boss Logic art of a Wolverine claw and Jackman hanging out with Kevin Feige, the supreme overlord of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The idea, of course, is that Jackman doesn’t imply so subtly that after “stepping down” from the role with the death of his character in Logan, he might be ready to return either as a cameo, once. that the multiverse would open up that would allegedly bring us characters like multiple Spider-Men from past eras, or perhaps becoming the MCUs real Wolverine, permanently removed from the FOX universe.
If we want to have a non-alarmist explanation for this, it is reported that Feige and Jackman are good friends, as Feige helped Jackman start the role of Wolverine, a role he played in at least nine films, if you will. count the cameos, since the year 2000.
Jackman apparently didn’t want to play Wolverine anymore because he was getting too old for the role (he’s 52 and had to be absolutely shredded every time he put his claws on). But fans were quick to jump in and point out that he might just switch to the Old Man Logan game, which might require less action and a less unreal physique to some extent, if he wanted to take him one. little more “more easily” in the role.
Marvel is currently continuing Phase 4, delayed after a year of pandemic pushback, and this era focuses on the post-Thanos era where we could build a new Avengers team, a Young Avengers team, or both, with new additions. like Shang-Chi, The Eternals and others, now including a myriad of Disney Plus series.
We’re not supposed to see the X-Men until Phase 5, probably 4 to 5+ years from now, and no one expected Marvel to just adapt all of FOX’s X-Men, because it will likely be about of a big reboot-based mutant leaving the good (and the bad, a lot of bad) FOX movies behind. But through all the ups and downs of the X-Men series, Jackman himself has always been the highlight (although I think you could make that argument for Stewart’s Xavier and McKellen’s Magneto as well).
If this is A clue to Jackman heading into the MCU as Wolverine, I’m much more likely to lean into the concept of a cameo in terms of multiverse appearance, rather than definitely getting him on board the MCU as Wolverine, a real graft of the FOX universe. I mean, if Spider-Man had Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, I certainly wouldn’t rule out Jackman making his mate Kevin a solid with a cameo appearance as Wolverine in one of the many upcoming movies or shows that we are about to see regarding the multiverse. The obvious idea is Doctor Strange, the more multiverse-focused offering, though that’s also a factor in Spider-Man. We’ll have to see. I don’t think it’s nothing.
