The clawed Wolverine who has been a fan favourite for many years in the X-Men movie franchise has announced his retirement from the franchise.

Jackman was already set to appear in the upcoming third instalment of the Wolverine story; Wolverine 3. That would be his last appearance in the franchise, as a post on his Instagram confirmed.


Jackman has been playing Wolverine since 2000’s X-Men, the movie that launched one of Marvel’s most successful comic-film franchises. Jackman’s portrayal of the moody, yet fiercely loyal and indestructible Logan has won him several acting accolades- and the admiration of fans the world over.

Seems that is set to end, but not for a while as Wolverine 3 has a 2017 release date.

Of course, as a prolific actor fans would still see Jackman in several other productions, but not as Wolverine. I hope Marvel would retire the character, or end the franchise altogether as it would be too weird seeing someone else playing Wolverine.

Gossip Mama is one of the dumbest writers you will ever meet. What she lacks for in brains she makes for in.....As a female with some lil sense in her mind, she wants to give it out to the celebs lacking it. If you dont find her glued to the Tv, check her out by the computer bashing some celebrity with words.. I am not a journalist nor do I aspire to be one. I am a blogger who saw the potential of this site and joined the bloggers. And yes, I am biased. I only report on artists/celebrities that I like or find interesting.....
