Hugh Jackman is teasing that his third Wolverine solo film will be his last outing as the iconic X-Men character.
Jackman shared a photo on Instagram of Wolverine’s claws — three to be exact — with the caption “WOLVERINE …ONE LAST TIME. HJ.”
Fox previously slated an untitled Wolverine project for March 3, 2017. Jackman has appeared as the gritty character in seven X-Men films since 2000 (counting a one-scene cameo in 2011’s X-Men: First Class).
Jackman last appeared as the character in 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. The followup to that film, X-Men: Apocalypse is set for a May 27, 2016 release, and will feature the First Class castmembers including James McAvoy,Michael Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence, along with different actors playing younger versions of characters from original X-Men trilogy, including Sophie Turner(Jean Grey), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops) and Alexandra Shipp (Storm).
There is no confirmation if Jackman will appear in that film in some capacity as well.
