Horror.com chatted with Hugh Jackman about his upcoming “Van Helsing” and a possible return as Wolverine in X-Men 3…
Q: How will it feel to bounce between franchises with this and the X-Men?
JACKMAN: Well, um, I’ve got to admit I said that exact question to my agent and Universal. I said, ‘Do you think maybe I shouldn’t be in both of them?’ He said, ‘I think this is the first time in history I’ve had an actor worry about being in two successful franchises.’ And course, that’s a good point. If they’re good movies and people want to see them and want to see another, you know, then… why not?
Q: Are you up for that?
JACKMAN: Yeah. I’m contracted for another Van Helsing. But I’m not contracted for any more X-Men. But would I like to do it? I’d find it hard to see someone else play the role, yeah. I love both of them. If I hated the movies and had to come back again, it would be a terrible situation.
