Hugh Jackman has had a long and storied acting career, with perhaps his most iconic role in the form of Wolverine in the X-Men Franchise. While fans would love to see Jackman find his way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the actor doesn’t sound overly optimistic about this.

In an interview with Jake’s Takes, Jackman was asked about the latest rumors that may appear in an MCU movie but almost all of which will be closed.
“Well, the fact that I’ve heard about it from you and there’s nothing from Kevin Feige in my inbox means that whatever idea I got, it probably isn’t on the table,” Jackman said. “Let’s be clear about that.
“I noticed it before we shot Logan, we got the idea, we knew what it was going to be and I thought this is it and that really helped me. It really helped to know I was going into my final season when it was my last season and I made the most of it, ”said Jackman. “And it’s still a character that I hold dear, but I know he’s done. Say this to whoever you want, but please tell Ryan [Reynolds] because he doesn’t believe it and thinks I’m kidding. “

This may be disappointing news for some, but it makes sense. Jackman’s last major portrayal of Wolverine was in Loganwhich seemed like a worthy end to his time in the role. In the meantime, fans must continue to wonder what Marvel Studios is doing for the X-Men Franchise, now that they have regained ownership of them.
