After ‘Logan’ hit theaters, it became known that this would be the last time that Hugh Jackman would play his iconic character, Wolverine. But once Fox was acquired by Disney, the X-Men characters became part of the House of the Mouse, so it has been revealed that ‘Logan’ director James Mangold spoke of Hugh Jackman in the MCU. .
In ‘Logan’, James Mangold closed the Wolverine story in an epic way and one that appealed not only to fans of superheroes but also to film critics. Jackman debuted as Wolverine in the first movie of ‘X Men’, in the year 2000, but ‘Logan’ simply focused more on the character, and ended with the death of the most popular mutant in the cinema, giving a definitive ending to Jackman in the franchise.
Thanks to a live feed of his movie, ‘Logan’, on the ComicBook portal. James Mangold spoke about what he thinks about being able to see Hugh Jackman in the MCU. What the director talked about is he wouldn’t love to see that, unless there’s a good story that justifies bringing him back.
“I’d be surprised if Hugh were to put it on again. What I always want to know when he heard on the web, everyone is exchanging rumors. So the headline becomes the clickbait on the exchange to make it, ‘Downey is back’ or ‘Jackman is back, “would be the headline, which people would then debate. What would be of my curiosity if any of these things happened, what are they doing with it? That is, I would have no qualms if someone had a good idea. If it is basically : ‘I ran out of money and I needed a big salary, and I’m making an empty movie that makes the quality of the previous one cheaper. On the other hand, if you have a good idea for a character, then there’s nothing wrong with doing something “, Mangold said.
On the part of Hugh Jackman, the actor has said that he will never put his claws again, since for him (and everyone) his character closed in the best way with ‘Logan’. Also, everyone could agree with Mangold on the subject of bringing actors back to their characters without good reason, and how this is counterproductive, and could even remove the weight of their respective endings.
