Wolverine doesn’t care about getting hurt ― he heals almost immediately. For the rest of us, this is gonna sting.
It appears “Logan” is truly Hugh Jackman’s final performance as Wolverine. We previously were holding out some hope, but in an interview with HuffPost in honor of “Logan” coming to Digital HD, Jackman shut it down.
We asked the actor what the chances were that we’d see his Wolverine and Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool together on screen.
His answer? Not good.
“It’s sorta out of my hands because I’m an actor who’s played Wolverine. I’m out,” he said, “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 chimed in.
The director continued, “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.”
Jackman previously said he might’ve held off his Wolverine retirement if he had the opportunity to meet the Avengers. Since there’s zero chance of that happening, we asked Jackman what an Avengers-Wolverine movie might look like.
“That would look like a miracle of business,” said the actor, laughing. “It’s a shame,” he added, saying that one of the joys of the comics is when multiple characters get together.
Mangold came at it from a different perspective.
“The films have gotten so damn crowded,” he said, “It would probably look like one of these selfies with the Oscars with everyone just trying to cram into frame.” He continued, “But of course it would be exciting.”
But alas, it will never be. If you need us, we’ll just be over here watching “Logan.”
We’re not crying. You’re crying.
“Logan” is available now on Digital HD and will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and 4K Ultra HD on May 23.
