Hugh Jackman has played the role of Wolverine for 17 years. Now, the 48-year-old actor bid his final goodbye as the clawed mutant superhero in the recently released "Logan." As he will no longer part of the future "X-Men" movies, there are strong assumptions that the "Les Misérables" actor will be back on theater.
"I was very clear this was the last one when we were making it," Hugh Jackman said, according to BBC. The "Real Steel" star added that he might not have the ability to make "Logan" if he didn't know it would be his last.
In fact, Hugh Jackman explained that "Logan" is the version of the film he really wanted to make. Although he has been making "X-Men" films in the past, the "Van Helsing" actor believed that they haven't full made it.
Hugh Jackman is not even confident about "Logan" until he saw the film on the silver screen. And upon seeing it, he is fully satisfied. After his last "X-Men" movie, his next film project will be "The Greatest Showman."
After that, the publication noted that Hugh Jackman is eyeing to be back to the stage of London. As a matter of fact, he already won an Olivier theatre award in 1998 for his stint in Trevor Nunn's revival of "Oklahoma!" This, too, worked as his launch on the UK theater.
However, it looks like Hugh Jackman can't easily return to theater acting because of his children; Oscar Maximilian (16) and Ava Eliot (11). At some point in the future I'd love to come to the West End," he said.
Meanwhile, aside from Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart also is now decided to leave his iconic role as Professor Charles Xavier, TV3 Xposé reported. While watching "Logan" together, the 76-year-old actor revealed that he saw the "Pan" star wipe his tears when the film is about to end.
When the credits start rolling, Patrick Stewart admitted that he realized "Logan" is the best time to say goodbye to the "X-Men" franchise. On the other hand, this might not be the last time that he will work with Hugh Jackman as they are both looking forward to return to theater.
