After two decades and nine X-Men movies, Hugh Jackman completed his time as Wolverine in Logan. The third solo outing for his comic book character saw the mutant dead and buried. The 53-year-old has since repeatedly said he’s done with the role, but is he really?

Rumours have been circulating over the last year that Jackman has been approached by Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige about a comeback.

The latter was a producer on the original X-Men movie over 20 years ago and now that Disney have purchased Fox, those characters can feature in the MCU.

We saw this kicked off when Evan Peters returned as Quicksilver in WandaVision, although he turned out to be someone called Ralph Bohner – well, for now anyway.


And with the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home this week, Marvel fans saw characters from the Sony universes entering the MCU.

Not just five villains but also Peter Parker variants played by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

Rumours abound that the next MCU movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, teased in the post-credits scene, will feature Fox X-Men characters.

Geekosity’s sources reported that both Sir Patrick Stewart’s Professor X and Jackman’s Wolverine return.

Take all of this with a pinch of salt, but allegedly Stewart and Jackman were persuaded to return as their characters will be variants, meaning the deaths in Logan won’t be undone.

Now if that weren’t enough, Giant Freakin Robot’s sources report that Jackman is in talks to play Wolverine in a Secret Wars movie too, which may well be Avengers 5.

This famous comic book storyline saw the Marvel multiverse collide and a blockbuster version could very well be the way that Avengers Endgame can be topped.

Just imagine a ton of variants of the same superheroes teaming up again the MCU’s new Thanos, time-travelling despot Kang the Conqueror and all his alternate selves, played by Jonathan Majors.

The outlet reports that Feige has had serious talks with Jackman about this other Wolverine comeback in Secret Wars.

Given that Maguire and Garfield were convinced to return in Spider-Man: No Way Home means this certainly isn’t beyond the realms of possibility.

In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if the Peter Parker variants showed up in Doctor Strange 2 and Secret Wars too.

Spider-Man: No Way Home is out now and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits cinemas on May 6, 2022.
