Hugh Jackman Says He Won't Be Starring in a 'Deadpool' Movie

Sad news for fans who were hoping to see Hugh Jackman reprise his role as Wolverine in an upcoming Deadpool movie!

The 48-year-old Logan actor cleared up any rumors that he might star in Deadpool 2 alongside his former X-Men Origins: Wolverine co-star Ryan Reynolds during a recent interview.

“It’s sorta out of my hands because I’m an actor who’s played Wolverine,” Hugh told Huffington Post. “I’m out. But if I was running the studio and someone else was playing Wolverine…”

“I’m sure that’s something they could pull together,” Logan director James Mangold added. “The reality for me is, I’ve made two Wolverine movies in a row, so you’re talking to a guy who’s actually ready to direct Hugh Jackman in something else.”

When asked what an Avengers-Wolverine movie might look like (Hugh has said he might come back as Wolverine if he got to do that), Hugh laughed, “That would look like a miracle of business. It’s a shame.”

“The films have gotten so damn crowded,” James chimed in. “It would probably look like one of these selfies with the Oscars with everyone just trying to cram into frame. But of course it would be exciting.”

ICYMI, Hugh recently revealed that he didn’t know wolverines were real animals!

    Logan was a perfect send-off.
    Jackman should definitely leave the X-Men franchise behind him.
    After all, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey and Channing Tatum as Gambit are the future, right ?

    We’re doomed.
