The Wolverine Sequel Release Date Announced: Will Hugh Jackman Return?

James Mangold is back to direct (and write), but the big – no, huge -- question mark is: Will Hugh Jackman be back?

Jackman’s Wolverine is one of our 27 favorite movie heroes, so you know Movie Fanatic wants to see the Australian actor back in action. But, let’s think about the man behind those claws for one moment.

He has played Wolverine now for 15 years… that is a long time.

There has been no James Bond actor that kept the license to kill for that long. No Superman or Batman actor has even come close to playing the same person for that long. And the fact that it’s such an action heavy role that by its nature requires Jackman to be in almost inhuman shape… that is a lot to ask.

If Jackman steps away, we can understand. But, you can forgive us if we just don’t want him to hang up his claws just yet. 

Go back and see how his journey started and watch X-Men online.
