Hugh Jackman wants to play Wolverine until he dies…

February 22nd, 2015 by Marc Comments


The news came out last week that Matthew Vaughn wanted a different actor to play Wolverine when he made X-Men: First Class. But it seems, it could be a while before that happens yet…

Speaking with Cigar Aficionado, Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman, said that Wolverine is a role he loves so much that he has no intention of ever quitting it: “Every time I play Wolverine I want to go further, physically and emotionally.”

“I said to my wife, ‘The moral is that I should never stop playing Wolverine. I’ve got to find a way to keep playing him until I die.’ I know that someday they’ll recast the role with another actor… I’d be happy if the role was eventually recast. It would mean that it had become iconic.”

Do you think that Jackman has another few years playing the character? Don’t forget that Old Man Logan is a thing so, conceivably, he could have many, many years in the role yet….

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
