When ‘one of the nicest guys in Hollywood’ said ‘It’s time to go home,’ we all felt a crunching feeling in our heart. Though it was a joke Hugh Jackman cracked in between an interview with Entertainment Weekly, his words meant more than that for the ritualistic fans of the claw-wielding mutant Wolverine. Jackman bid adieu to Wolverine in the 2017 hit Logan, his ninth movie in the franchise.
In 2016, Jackman became the only actor and character to appear in all the movies of the ‘X-Men’ franchise. He has also held the record for playing the same superhero character for the most number of times in a live-action film franchise. The 2000 movie, ‘X-Men’ became a milestone for both Jackman and the superhero movies. Based on the comic book series, ‘X-Men’ went on to become a massive hit and a trailblazer for a slew of superhero movies followed it. Jackman became so synonymous with the Wolverine and he earned a number of prequels, sequels and spinoffs of ‘X-Men’ over the years.
After his Wolverine debut in 2000, Jackman joined hands with Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen and other regulars for the movie ‘X2’ in 2003 and ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ in 2006. Then, he got a spinoff titled, ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine; in 2009. He returned to the iconic role with prequels ‘X-Men: First Class’ in 2011 and ‘The Wolverine’ in 2013. By then, he started sharing his Wolverine legacy with Jennifer Lawrence and James McAvoy. the 2017 flick, ‘Logan’ was his farewell movie in the ‘X-Men’ franchise.
Ever since his debut in the Australian drama ‘Law of the Land’ in 1994, Hugh Jackman has been maintaining certain stability an illuminance surrounding his course. Whether flexing muscles in ‘X-Men’, getting emotionally musical in ‘Les Misérables’ or shaking his legs for a couple of lightning moves in ‘The Greatest Showman,’ Jackman is a man of the moment, in the strict present tense.
In the glitter of the claws, we tend to ignore his masterpieces like ‘The Prestige‘ and ‘Les Misérables,’ as well as a prolific career on the stage, that earned him a couple of Emmys and Tonys. in January 2013, Jackman won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for ‘Les Misérables.’ He got his first Academy Award nomination for Best Actor in the same year, but lost it to none other than Daniel Day-Lewis, for ‘Lincoln.’ At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Hugh Jackman movie?
