Played by Australian actor Hugh Jackman since the original 2000 film, despite returning in a much larger capacity for the 2014s X-Men: Days of Future Past, Jackman’s Wolverine only made a cameo appearance in Vaughn’s film.

There is only one that I couldn’t play properly and I would have lovedâ¦ Hugh Jackman was so good and did such a good job doing it. But tossing the young (Wolverine) reboot, that would be fun, I think, and it could go in such a different direction where Hugh took it as well. I think Hugh got him out of the park but I think from (all of the X-Men) he’s the character that weirdly, I don’t know why I’m drawn to. Yeah, Wolverine.

Vaughn’s top picks for the role, Taron Egerton and Aaron Taylor-Johnson have each been offered as potential replacements by fans over the years, though the latter is in the turn of Pietro Maximoff (Quicksilver) in Avengers: Age of Ultron can prevent him from becoming the fan favorite X-Man.
