Hugh Jackman is ready to hang up his claws.
Hugh took to his Instagram to confirm that he'll be playing Wolverine for one last time in a photograph which featured his clenched fists and the signature claws of his X-Men character.
According to a source who spoke to The Wrap, Hugh's Instagram post refers to an upcoming sequel to 2013's The Wolverine. Although Hugh's Wolverine is also rumored to appear in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse or in Deadpool (starring Ryan Reynolds), the upcoming sequel is the most likely candidate for the end of Wolverine as we've known him for more than a decade.
In 2014, Hugh also hinted that the upcoming sequel would be significantly different than what we've been used to in the past. "I'd probably move it to a different visual palette," Hugh said. "We are looking at a lot of different storylines. No one has jumped out."
Hugh's Wolverine first appeared in 2000's X-Men and he has appeared six times in numerous X-Men universe films, including last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Whenever Hugh makes his last appearance, we'll be devasted for sure. Consider it the end of an era.
