Spread MCU News

After Disney’s acquisition of Fox in 2019, discussions surrounding the integration of X-Men characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) began. However, Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige advised Hugh Jackman against reprising his iconic role as Wolverine following the character’s poignant sendoff in “Logan.” Feige believed that Jackman’s farewell in “Logan” was the perfect ending for the character and didn’t want to disrupt that narrative by bringing him back into the MCU.

Feige’s decision was based on his respect for the character’s story and legacy rather than solely focusing on potential profit opportunities. Despite the potential for a lucrative return by featuring Wolverine alongside the Avengers, Feige prioritized preserving the emotional weight of Jackman’s final portrayal. This decision underscores Feige’s commitment to honoring the integrity of each character’s journey within the MCU.

Three years later, Jackman made the unexpected choice to revisit the role of Wolverine, driven by his love for the character and the potential for new storytelling opportunities. Despite initially considering himself retired from the role, Jackman’s passion for Wolverine was reignited during a moment of reflection, leading him to eagerly accept the opportunity to join Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool in the upcoming “Deadpool & Wolverine” film. Jackman’s decision highlights the enduring appeal of Wolverine and his excitement for the character’s future within the MCU.
