Hugh Jackman is the embodiment of Wolverine. The X-Men character enjoyed three X-Men films with Fox, before going on to appear in the three-follow-up movies in a separate timeline. Jackman then finished off the iconic Marvel character’s journey in some solo films, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Wolverine and Logan. Although the latter movie killed off Jackman’s version of the character, his return may be right around the corner, bringing him face-to-face with the Avengers.
Jackman recently posted a slew of clues on his Instagram account this week.
The Aussie actor started by reposting some concept art of Wolverine’s arm from renowned artist Bosslogic.
The star, who has not mentioned Wolverine since his version died in 2017, then followed up with another photo.
He posted a snap of himself with his arm around Marvel Cinematic Universe maestro Kevin Feige – the orchestrator of the entire MCU timeline.
Jackman’s portrayal of Wolverine changed even the comic book version of the hero, so his presence in the MCU would be huge for fans of the franchise.
What’s more, considering Fox – and its various X-Men films – was recently purchased by Disney, the previous version of Logan could indeed be brought into the ongoing MCU.
He could be an entirely new version of the character or a revival of the previously deceased hero.
According to noted leaker Grace Randolph, Feige has been looking to bring Jackman back onto the scene for some time.

Jackman said: “The Avengers would prove too much to turn down.
“I always love the idea of him [Wolverine] within that dynamic, with the Hulk obviously, with Iron Man but there are a lot of smarter people with MBAs who can’t figure that out [laughter].”
He added: “You never know. At the moment, honestly, if I really did have them there, I probably wouldn’t have said this is the last [about Logan].”
Jackman then spoke about Logan being the last time he would play Wolverine, adding: “It just feels like this is the right time.”
Although Jackman would have once wanted to get involved with both Iron Man and Hulk, these characters are no longer what they once were.
Has Logan lost his chance of joining up with the Avengers are they once were?
The X-Men and Wolverine films are available on Disney Plus.
