Logan was supposed to be the last film in the Wolverine trilogy and the last time Hugh Jackman would portray the well-known X-Men character, which he started with the live-action feature in 2000. But over ten years after Jackman’s last performance as the Marvel superhero, the Australian actor is reprising his legendary role as Deadpool & Wolverine. Jackman talked candidly about his experience reprising his role as Wolverine for the next Deadpool film and what it was like to don the character’s iconic yellow outfit. “In The Wolverine, we almost pulled it off,” Jackman remarked. However, as soon as I uploaded it, I thought, ‘How did we never do this?’ It felt good, and it looked right. That’s him, I thought. There are facets of Wolverine that the films haven’t shown us yet. For me, it was thrilling. Given that Jackman devoted over two decades of his life to the X-Men franchise, which saw its share of highs and lows during 20th Century Fox’s ownership, most comic book readers were understanding and appreciative of the actor’s choice to step away from the character following the release of Logan. Logan’s reputation as a wonderfully poignant farewell to the mutant anti-hero created by Len Wein and John Romita Sr. was undoubtedly helpful. Considering that the Wolverine film trilogy had a rough beginning with the 2009 release of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the audience’s response was unexpected.

But according to Jackman, Wolverine’s unusual collaboration with the Merc with the Mouth in Deadpool & Wolverine—the first R-rated Marvel film released by Disney—offers a different perspective on the character. “It’s great that Deadpool has someone who can hit him in the face,” he said. Apart from the idea that Deadpool and Wolverine are being compelled by the Time Variance Authority to embark on a time-traveling mission that would “change the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe,” not much more information about the film’s plot has been disclosed. There will be appearances from Fox’s X-Men films and maybe Taylor Swift in the film originally known as Deadpool 3.

As Jackman had previously stated, during the 2013 film The Wolverine, he nearly donned the yellow superhero suit. But the costume’s debut amounted to nothing more than a different way to wrap out the movie. The director of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, Logan, The Wolverine, and Logan, James Mangold, gave an explanation of why he personally opposes Logan getting into combat gear.

“I always feel a certain contingent of fans who are yearning for it,” Mangold stated. “But the biggest obstacle I’ve faced—and I’m prepared to accept criticism for it—is that, in my opinion as a writer for these films as well, Logan is the least conceited superhero I can think of, whether he comes from Marvel, DC, or some other universe. That is to say, who doesn’t wear a specially designed dress in recognition of their excellent deeds? And why?” “You only do it so you can have some kind of trademarked claim and get credit for what you did,” he went on. Nothing makes you feel less like Wolverine than wanting to dress in a canary yellow trademarked clothing, kind of parade about performing good acts, and having people say, “Oh my God! It’s The Wolverine!” I really struggle with Wolverine, at least the way I view him. I have always struggled with him. People would not be happy, in my opinion, if Hugh Jackman were to ever don one of those costumes. It’s just something that exists on the page and, to be honest, I doubt could exist anyplace else.”
