Following the recent and quite shocking announcement that the Walt Disney Company was officially acquiring 20th Century Fox's film and TV assets, which of course included the X-Men and the Fantastic Four. Many comic book fans and movie fans alike have been clamoring for Hugh Jackman's Logan/Wolverine to return to the big-screen following Jackman's final appearance as the legendary X-Men character in director James Mangold's epic western masterpiece, Logan.
Following Jackman's deeply emotional and heartbreaking farewell this past year in Logan, the chances of ever seeing Jackman portray the character again on the big-screen is pretty much an impossible long-shot. However, its longshots like these that Disney has become increasing better at accomplishing over the past decade.
Now, the Winter Soldier himself, actor Sebastian Stan has revealed that Hugh Jackman could be or is mulling over/thinking/talking about returning as Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe once Disney's acquisition of 20th Century Fox is complete.
Check out a video of his comments below, starting at the 9:25 mark:
Here's a transcript of what he said thanks to CBM:
"Recently, I happened to be sitting next to Hugh Jackman. I didn't know what other awkward thing I could talk about, but to be like, 'Am I going to see you soon?' I don't know, but he said a couple things to me and I'll just leave it at that. Otherwise, I think I'm going to get into trouble." He continues, "I asked him cause I kept thinking whether or not he said Logan was supposed to be the last Wolverine thing. He said to me what's probably been said out there that he's been thinking about it and it's on his mind. So, I don't know."
Will this actually happen? Doubtful. But now a days, you just never know for sure. And why would Sebastian Stan say this? If there wasn't something to it.
