Even the most beautiful love stories have to end someday, and the one between Hugh Jackman and Wolverine is no exception. After 17 beautiful years, the Australian actor said goodbye to his iconic member of the X-Men. However, on the third anniversary of the release of Logan, Jackman took to Instagram to share some never-seen-before shots at his iconic character.
“3 years ago, on this day, Logan was released,” the caption reads. “Thank you for the many (and I really mean MANY) years of sweat, steamed chicken and the role of a lifetime!”
You can check the unseen Logan shots below.
Jackman started playing Wolverine back in 2000 with Bryan Singer’s X-Men. He reprised the Marvel character in seven more X-Men films from 2002 until 2016. Jackman portrayed Wolverine for the last time in the standalone movie Logan in 2017. After that, he made it clear that he wouldn’t return to the role again.
Now that Disney has acquired Fox, the Mutants led by Professor X will make their debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, sooner or later. At the moment, Marvel Studios have not revealed any plan involving the X-Men. On top of that, they’ll most likely recast the character of Wolverine, unless Disney and Jackman can work an unexpected deal that would surprise — and please — many fans. In these last few days, several rumors pointed at The Witcher‘s Henry Cavill as Jackman’s successor, but so far they turned out to be false.
