The Wolverine star Hugh Jackman may be coy on whether he’d reprise the role of Wolverine after X-Men: Days Of Future Past – that’s an incredible 7 appearances as the mutton-chopped mutant he’s racked up now – but according to the National Enquirer, he’s going to be making that decision pretty soon.
The site reports that Jackman has been offered $100 million to reprise the role of Wolverine in 4 more “X-Men related” movies. 20th Century Fox could be hoping to include the character Jeff Wadlow’s X-Force – the director has already hinted a cherrypicking of the different comic-book incarnations.
“Hugh has a big decision to make. It’s not every day an actor gets offered this kind of paycheque, but Hugh vowed never to lock himself into any multi-picture deals after X-Men,” the source is quoted as saying.
“He hasn’t given any kind of answer yet, so at least he’s considering it.”
X-Men: Days Of Future Past is released on 18 July 2014. You can buy X-Men: The Ultimate Collection on Blu-ray for £26.24 at Amazon.co.uk.
