    Hugh Jackman Receives Word Of Caution From Kevin Feige About Reprising Wolverine Role

    Kevin Feige once shared a piece of guidance with Hugh Jackman: Refrain from erasing the final chapter of Logan.

    In a discussion chronicled by Empire Magazine about Jackman’s potential misstep in returning to the role of Wolverine in the upcoming Deadpool & Wolverine film, Feige reminisces about the counsel he offered to Jackman following what was intended to be Jackman’s swan song as the character in the 2017 movie, Logan.

    “My suggestion to you, Hugh, is ‘Don’t make a comeback’,” Feige advised.

    He continued…

    You concluded Logan’s saga with perhaps the most memorable finale ever. That isn’t an episode to reverse.

    It seems Jackman ultimately did not align with this viewpoint after discussing the possibility of officially entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a collaborative film with Ryan Reynolds’ rendition of Deadpool.

    “I pondered to myself,” Jackman recollected. “‘What am I eager to pursue?’ And right when I posed the question, I realized I yearned to be part of Deadpool & Wolverine. It was an instant certainty. I drove on for another hour, swarming with thoughts. When I stepped out of the car, I rang up Ryan and told him, ‘Ryan, if you’ll accept me, count me in.’”

    We ought to interpret this through the prism of the Marvel multiverse, which provides Jackson with an opportunity to revisit the Wolverine character, yet does not conflict with the narrative of Logan. The mechanics of how Jackman’s portrayal will be integrated into the storyline is currently unknown, but it’s evident that Deadpool & Wolverine will navigate through alternate realities and distinct worlds. Respectfully, this is not the same Wolverine we bid farewell to in Logan. Therefore, the legacy of that finale remains unaltered. In essence, Jackman has the privilege to both retain and re-engage with his legacy as Wolverine.
