Jackman eyes Wolverine in Avengers

Hugh Jackman has revealed his dream to see Wolverine team up with the Avengers.

The Australian star, who has reprised his role as the clawed mutant for X-Men: Days Of Future Past, said he would like his alter-ego to join forces with the other Marvel superheroes in a cross-over movie.

"I would love to see him as part of The Avengers. Because there's a great dysfunction among that team, and I think Wolverine would fit in perfectly into that. He'd like that," he told

Hugh said the character would probably butt heads with scientist Bruce Banner/Hulk.

"There's no doubt he'd get in a fight with Hulk at some point," he said. "Those two bad, rage-filled characters are gonna square off at some point. It would be quite fun."

The 45-year-old added: "I don't know how much fun to shoot it would be because I'm sure I'd be on the worst end of it, but hey, he can heal."

Hugh also said he can see Wolverine squaring off against Robert Downey Jr's alter-ego Tony Stark, aka Iron Man.

"I think he and Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man... That could be really cool as well," he said.
