Hugh Jackman Will Play Wolverine Only One More Time

This means that the actor will likely not play Wolverine in “X-Men: Apocalypse,” with the upcoming sequel to “The Wolverine” spinoff serving as his swan song. The movie is set for release on March 3, 2017.

Jackman first played the mutant in 2000’s “X-Men,” taking over the role from Dougray Scott after the actor sustained an injury. He has now assumed the role an unrivaled seven times, including two turns in his own offshoots — “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and “The Wolverine.”

It’s unclear whether the actor will make cameos in “Apocalypse” and/or “Deadpool,” or if this photo is meant to put an end to those rumors as well.
