Wolverine 3 will be Hugh Jackman’s last time as Wolverine, says Hugh Jackman
Hugh Jackman has played Wolverine in seven movies now. Jackman’s role in the original X-Men trilogy led to mainstream stardom, and in the near-decade since X-Men: The Last Stand, the actor has oscillated between carrying his own solo spinoff series and appearing in the period-piece prequel series. A third Wolverine film will arrive in 2017—and according to Jackman, it will mark the end of his time playing the clawed Canadian badass with a healing factor that can cure everything. (Except his broken heart. Only time travel can cure a broken heart.)
