Hugh Jackman has been instantly recognizable in geekdom since his first performance as Wolverine in X-Men (2000). Most recently he was in X-Men: Days of Future Past. 15 years is a long time to be playing the same character, but it seems like Jackman is due for one more feature film with Wolverine.
Jackman posted the photo below to Instagram recently, showing his iconic adamantium claws extended on one hand, with the caption “WOLVERINE …ONE LAST TIME. HJ”
What will the final performance be? FOX has slated an as yet untitled third Wolverine movie for March 3rd, 2017. Perhaps the adamantium claws, instead of the silly bone claws, are meant to be a clue. Otherwise, details are pretty scarce.
In the meantime, we can still look forward to more X-Men with the upcoming X-Men Apocalypse from Bryan Singer. No word yet if Jackman will appear as Wolverine in that movie.
