‘Spider-Man’ Star Jake Gyllenhaal On Wolverine Actor Hugh Jackman Ingoring Handstand Challenge

Spider-Man: Far From Home star Jake Gyllenhaal commented on Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman ignoring his handstand challenge.

Earlier this month, Tom Holland called on his Spider-Man: Far From Home star Jake Gyllenhaal to accept his “handstand shirt challenge.” Of course, Jake Gyllenhaal answered the call and then challenged a few celebrities to follow his lead, including former Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman.

Unfortunately, Hugh Jackman did not even respond to Jake Gyllenhaal and the Spider-Man: Far From Home star recalled his reaction to the snub during his appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. As Jake Gyllenhaal recalled, he reached out the former Wolverine actor after his challenge was ignored only to receive a response that did not address the matter at all:

“Hugh Jackman and 50 Cent did not respond at all. [..] I emailed him, and I said, ‘Come on, man.’ And he said, ‘I hope you’re well.'”

While Hugh Jackman has retired from the role of Wolverine, Marvel Studios confirmed plans to include mutants in the MCU during its presentation at San Diego Comic-Con2019. However, the studio is reportedly in no rush to introduce the X-Men to the MCU, meaning it will likely be some time before we learn who will replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.

Here is the official synopsis for Spider-Man: Far From Home:

Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever.

Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, Numan Acar, J.B. Smoove, Oli Hill, Remy Hii, Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Cobie Smulders, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
