Hugh Jackman Rumored To Return As Wolverine For Avengers 4 Cameo

Posted 2017/12/10 0 0

The Disney and Fox merger could pave the way for Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) to show up one last time.


After playing Wolverine on-screen for 17 years, Hugh Jackman declared he had left the role when Logan came out earlier this year. The actor’s said many times now that his stint as the X-Men leader is over, but he’s also mentioned in the past that he’d return for the chance to rub shoulders with the likes of the Hulk and Iron Man. Hugh Jackman has been quoted as saying, "The Avengers would prove too much to turn down."

Now this doesn't mean that this is going to happen 100%, but the possible sale of Fox Studios to Disney may bring back Hugh Jackman as the berserker-raging, adamantium-wielding mutant for Avengers 4. AICN news actually reports the Disney and Fox deal is already done, which means Wolverine, the X-Men, Deadpool, Fantastic Four and related characters are now back at Marvel. Their report ends with: "And yes, it’s true: we may see Hugh Jackman return to Wolverine for this."

A quick cameo, in theory, would not be too difficult to pull off. Jackman previously stated that if a script came his way featuring The Avengers, Captain America, and Iron Man, he would heavily consider the idea of returning as Wolverine. He explains.

"Because I always love the idea of him (Wolverine) within that dynamic, with the Hulk obviously, with Iron Man but there are a lot of smarter people with MBAs who can't figure that out (laughter). You never know. At the moment, honestly, if I really did have them there, I probably wouldn't have said this is the last."

Anthony and Joe Russo are still filming The Avengers 4, so if the Fox and Disney deal is already done, Wolverine is now all to their liking. In addition, AICN also suggests to look for the Fantastic Four's Baxter Building and possibly the X-Mansion in Avengers 4.
