It's been 17 years now that Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine on the big screen. And after playing it for 17 years in as many as nine movies, he'll finally be hanging his claws after Logan. But since Deadpool hit the silver-screen in 2016, fans have been speculating and hoping for a Wolverine-Deadpool crossover. Not only fans, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds, too, has repeatedly expressed hopes of luring Jackman out of superhero retirement for a Deadpool-Wolverine crossover. But looks like that's not gonna happen now. Hugh Jackman confirmed it when he told Fandango, "I'm out."
He continued, "That’s probably bad timing, because I love Ryan Reynolds and I love Deadpool, but I knew I was out and I couldn’t have made this movie if I was questioning I was out. I was a pain in the ass for a lot of people with this movie, because it mattered so much to me. Even when we started writing this, and even when I asked James Mangold to come onboard, I said, ‘dude, I don’t know if I’m gonna’ make it.’ Unless it’s exactly what I want, I prefer to not do it. I couldn’t live with it. So this is it."
The film has received rave reviews from critics around the world. So it is suffice to derive that Hugh Jackman perhaps wants to leave the superhero franchise on a high. Also read: Wolverine Hugh Jackman kicks cancer's butt for the 6th time
The much talked about as well as much awaited film will hit the silver screens on March 3, 2017 and the film being rated R should be credited to the success of Deadpool, which was motivating enough for the makers, to go all out for the final Wolverine film. Going by the trailer, the film seems true to its source material, which is the comic book Old Man Logan.
