Hugh Jackman’s time as Wolverine is nearly over. After the actor teased over the weekend that he would be putting on the claws one last time.
As previously reported, Fox has slated an untitled Wolverine project for March 3, 2017, and now it seems it might be star Hugh Jackman’s last turn as the X-Men character. The actor posted an Instagram on his account Saturday of his hand, complete with characteristic claws, captioned: “WOLVERINE …ONE LAST TIME. HJ”
Jackman last starred as the mutant in 2014’s X:Men: Days of Future Past. There’s no confirmation whether Jackman will appear in that film’s follow-up, the May 2016, X:Men: Apocalypse (which will also be Jennifer Lawrence’s last outing as Mystique). The most recent standalone film spotlighting the character was 2013’s The Wolverine.
