Hugh Jackman Reconsiders Wolverine Retirement

Don't start mourning Hugh Jackman's departure from the X-Men franchise just yet. According to the actor himself, his days as Wolverine aren't quite behind him.

"At one point, you're right, I said I was pretty sure [about leaving the role]," Jackman told IGN at the Australian premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past. "But I'm less sure as it goes along. Because after seeing this movie, the whole thing feels fresher to me than ever. And during this movie ... I don't want to spoil anything, but it's kind of like a clean slate, so who knows where it's going to go. As long as I have the passion for it, and the fans will have me."

Sounds like we could have Jackman's Logan in our lives for quite a while yet.

For now, we can officially count on a big role for Jackman in X-Men: Days of Future Past, in theaters this weekend. Beyond that, he looks likely to return for a third solo Wolverine outing, scheduled for release in 2017.
