Hugh Jackman calls Wolverine 'role of a lifetime' on X-Men Day

WIth the makers celebrating May 14 as the as the X-Men Day, actor Hugh Jackman who played the iconic role of Wolverine took to his social media to post a gratitude-filled picture.

He posted a picture of himself as Wolverine with his metal claws out and captioned it, “the role of a lifetime.”

The photo is from 2017’s Logan, Jackman’s swan song for the role he played in nine movies across 17 years.

“And on the way home, someone calls you and goes, ‘They just put Michael Jackson on, you gotta get back here,’” Jackman said of Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool.

Reynolds previously told EW that he hopes to one day lure Jackman back to the role for a proper Deadpool-Wolverine team up.

Hugh is by the way open to portraying any other superhero role and he also said that he is “100%” looking forward to seeing Disney-owned Marvel Studios’ take on the X-Men now that Disney has acquired 20th Century Fox’s entertainment assets for $71.3 billion.
