Was Hugh Jackman tired of playing Wolverine? The actor reveals why he stopped playing the iconic Marvel hero prior to Deadpool and Wolverine!

Many saw Logan as a perfect end to Hugh Jackman’s time as Wolverine. That’s why so many fans were surprised when the actor revealed that he’d be returning to the role of the X-Men hero in Marvel’s Deadpool and Wolverine. While speaking about his return, Jackman revealed he originally left the part because he was simply tired of doing it.

“I had got to the point probably 10 years ago I was like, I’m not enjoying it. It was hurting. It was tough,” Jackman told People. “But I’ve had a break, and I’ve been doing a lot of dance. I’ve been doing stage shows. And so when I came back to it, it was really fun.”

Marvel roles are hard work. Perhaps none more so than one like Wolverine where Hugh Jackman had to constantly have his shirt off. It’s understandable why he’d want to hang up the claws after Logan. However, it’s good to see that he’s had enough time away from the role that he’s back and better than ever in Deadpool and Wolverine!

The Many Wolverines Of Deadpool 3

While most of the excitement for Deadpool and Wolverine revolves around Hugh Jackman returning to his iconic role, he may not be alone. Rumors suggest that Marvel has multiple variants of the X-Men character in the pipeline for the project, with two of the biggest names said to be attached being Taron Egerton and Daniel Radcliffe.

Hugh Jackman may also reunite with a Logan co-star in Deadpool and Wolverine. A different rumor suggests that Dafne Keen, who played X-23 in the project, will return as her own variant of Wolverine. Even if only a few of these rumors are true, it’s clear that Marvel has plenty of tricks left up its sleeve for Jackman’s grand return!

Deadpool and Wolverine is currently expected to be released on July 26, 2024. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
