Jackman Explains Wolverine 3 Will Be His Last Performance As The Character

Hugh Jackman recently confirmed on May 7th, during his appearance on the Dr. OZ show, that Wolverine 3 will be his last performance as Wolverine.
When first asked if he would appear in anymore films as the character following the release of Wolverine 3 Jackman stated outright, “This will be my last one.”  He went on to explain, “It just felt like it was the right time to do it. And let’s be honest, 17 years. I never thought in a million years it would last, so I’m so grateful to the fans for the opportunity of playing it. “I kind of have in my head what we’re going to do in this last one. It just feels like this is the perfect way to go out.”
While it’s still not clear if Jackman will make a cameo appearance in X-Men: Apocalypse, which opens at the box office prior to the next Wolverine film, he has been known to change his mind about his desire to continue playing the role.
Wolverine is perhaps the most iconic and recognizable role that Jackman has played since he first clawed his way into our hearts in the original X-Men film. The character was most recently used in X-Men:Days of Future Past to correct the mistakes of the previous trilogy while seamlessly interweaving both trilogy timelines together. Whoever Fox finds to replace Jackman in future X-Men and Wolverine films will certainly have a hard time replacing the man who we have come to recognize as The Wolverine
The third film in the Wolverine franchise is set to be released in 2017.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
