Logan will be the final installment of the Wolverine film series and will mark Hugh Jackman’s final appearance as the titular character. Last night’s preview screenings for the film earned an impressive box office intake, indicating that several fans showed up early to bid farewell to Hugh Jackman’s incarnation of the popular X-Men hero. However, fans attending certain AMC theater screenings in Manhattan on Thursday night were stunned when Hugh Jackman himself stopped by, granting them the chance to express their gratitude for his nearly two decade run as Wolverine in person.
According to Deadline, Jackman’s appearance was kept a secret so the actor could express his own gratitude to the fans for supporting the film and take time to snap some photos with the crowds.
The AMC theater locations at which Jackman appeared included the Lincoln Square 13, Empire 25 and Village 7.
