When it was announced that Disney had purchased the rights to the X-Men characters, fans were quick to get excited about which of the X-Men characters could and should appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and when. Of course, the most obvious and popular character that fans would want to see is Wolverine, with pretty much everyone hoping Hugh Jackman will reprise the role.
It is not just the fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe who want to see Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in the MCU, as Thor actor Chris Hemsworth is also a fan of the actor playing the character. Chris says that he would love Hugh to reprise the role for one more movie and insisted that he will be doing his best to convince the actor to play Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Hemsworth said, "I mean, Wolverine, just because I love that character, you know what I mean? I just love Hugh Jackman. Unfortunately, he died in the last movie, didn’t he? We can bring him back to life… Now that you’ve informed me that it’s a possibility I’m going to get on the one phone and try to coax him over or convince him and see if he has one more in him."
While we would love to see Hugh Jackman reprising his role as Wolverine, if it is just for one last movie then we do not think it should happen. Instead, a younger actor should join the MCU as Wolverine, as they are then going to be able to stick around for a lot of future movies. With that said, money talks, and we are confident Hugh will come around to the idea of playing Wolverine one last time.
