Jackman considers Wolverine end

Hugh Jackman has hinted that X-Men: Days Of Future Past could be his final outing as Wolverine.

The Australian star, who has played the Marvel mutant seven times, admitted the upcoming sequel could be the right time to hang up his claws.

"At some point I'll need to pass the baton on. I love this character, but there's a time when it's better to move on. This would be a perfect way to end, and I don't want to end on a down note," he told Empire.

Hugh gets to play two different Wolverines in Bryan Singer's upcoming movie - the one from the 70s and the warrior of 2023.

"It's an interesting journey for Wolverine, because of where he starts the movie. He's a far more evolved character, going back in time to when he wasn't so evolved," the actor explained.

However, the 45-year-old actor also revealed he is "interested" in making a third Wolverine film, but has yet to sign on.

"I'm interested and am open to the idea, but I haven't signed on for it. If I don't think it'll be as good or better than The Wolverine, I won't be doing it," he said.

James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult are joined by the series' original cast, including Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Patrick Stewart, Ellen Page and Halle Berry, in X-Men: Days Of Future Past, which will be released on May 22.
