Poor Wolverine, he may be retired from the Fox’s X-Men cinematic universe before he’s really had a time to shine. Hugh Jackman confirms to SFX Magazine that he’s “99.9% sure” his next outing as the mutant will be his last:
If I did another one, I’m 99.9 percent sure it would be the last, so that will inform what it is for me.
So, that “if” is still in there. Jackman goes on to say he’s been working with director James Mangold on developing the story and script, but he won’t officially sign on until it’s to his absolute satisfaction:
I’m working with Jim Mangold, which is exciting. Jim came on board The Wolverine after Darren [Aronofsky] left, so he inherited it. And of all the things that Jim can do, one of the great things he does is develop scripts. I’m excited to see what we can come up with, but I haven’t signed on signed on. I’m genuinely at that point where unless it’s better than the last one I’m not going to do it.
