His end as Wolverine seems to be irrevocable. Or maybe not? Hugh Jackman is causing a stir among Marvel fans with two new pictures. What’s behind it?
Hardly any other film character seems to be so inextricably linked to a star as Wolverine is to Hugh Jackman. The fans were accordingly bent when the Australian hung up his claws with ” Logan – The Wolverine “. Especially since not much later the rights for the X-Men including Wolverine went to Disney. Actually, Jackman wanted to embody the mutant in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) on the side of the Avengers. But despite the option now available, he rejected it.
Has his mind changed since then? At least that’s what some fans hope for based on two pictures Hugh Jackman shared in his Instagram story shortly after one another. Thanks to a tweet from Big Screen Leaks, you can check out the two impressions here:

The first picture is a work of art by bosslogic, who has made a name for itself with this kind of artwork and often works officially for Marvel. You can see an arm of Wolverine on it, recognizable by the three iconic blades. The other snapshot, however, shows Hugh Jackman with Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios and architect of the MCU.
In combination, many fans interpret this as the message that Hugh Jackman is hinting at his return as Wolverine and has just met with Feige for his MCU debut. However, this is (unfortunately) extremely unlikely.
