Hugh Jackman has never came out and told the world indefinitely when he would finally hang up his claws.
That is, until now.
While appearing on the Dr Oz show, he confirmed that the 2017 Wolverine movie would be his last outing as the pint sized X-man.
“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.”
Although no official details have been released yet, rumours have been circulating that Wolverine 3 is to be based on the Old Man Logan series, which would be the perfect send off for Jackman after 17 years.
Wolverine 3 is scheduled to hit the cinemas around March/April 2017.
