Hugh Jackman's last ride as the Wolverine is up for a March 3 release. He's leaving no stone unturned to make sure this turns out to be the best Wolverine/X-Men movie of all time. While everyone is eagerly awaiting the final Wolverine film, many are wondering as to who'd don the 'claws' next. Talking to Rajeev Masand, when he was asked if he would be comfortable seeing other actor playing the role that he had made legendary with his portrayal for 17 long years, Hugh replied, "I think I'll be fine with it. I hope other people play it. May be Shah Rukh Khan could play it." Yes! he said that. Exciting right?
He further added, "The comic book series is so good because you have so many people interpreting this role. I think there are six origin stories. I'll be really interested to see how I feel about it. I want it to be really great. But I don't want it to be that much better than me. Just a little bit is fine. But if everyone is like 'oh thank god..now,' I might find that little difficult."

Going by the trailer, the film seems true to its source material, which is the comic book Old Man Logan.
