As the best boss in the world would say: oh my gosh, (maybe) it’s happening! There are not a few fans who long for the return of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in the Marvel movies, however, the actor denied it on several occasions and we had not heard from it. But change today. Through their social networks, Hugh shares a stunning photograph that could suggest his return as the popular big-screen mutant. It’s been a while since we last saw Logan in theaters but maybe things are about to change.

Hugh Jackman was cast as Wolverine for the X-Men – 81% of the year 2000. At the time I had no idea that he would become the most beloved mutant on the team, with solo films and millions of fans around the world who loved his ravenous and warm portrayal of the character. Of course the best came in 2017 with Logan – 93%, his last film as Wolverine and a magnificent closure for the character. Although many still think that Jackman will not return as the superhero, his most recent Instagram post turns the tables.
Yesterday, Hugh Jackman shared a Wolverine fanart made by BossLogic, the famous Instagram artist. Everything normal, everything fine up to there, the actor appreciating the illustration in reference to his work. But today a particular story comes like thunder: Jackman has posted a picture of him alongside Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios. No, it was not the executive’s birthday, or any other date in particular; the actor uploaded the photo without a single hashtag or any sign to imply the motive, just the silent suggestion of his return as Wolverine, this time for the MCU.

Kevin Feige has been very quiet about the plans he has for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the series on Disney Plus are beginning to pose an interesting scenario for everything, especially Loki – 96%. The adventure of the God of Deception brings with it some interesting concepts that will surely be developed in future films, for example, the famous “variants”. The series explains that these variants are products of deviations in the original timeline, however, they could be something much larger. The post-credits scene of the fourth chapter showed us three other variants of Loki, and maybe this could just be Hugh Jackman in his alleged return as Wolverine within the MCU, not Fox’s version of the X-Men, but a variant of the multiverse in Marvel Studios.
Unlike WandaVision – 95% and Falcon and the Winter Soldier – 97%, Loki It is the series that has told us the most about the multiverse, that narrative resource that all fans are waiting for and that is as common in comics as breathing. The new era of Marvel Studios intends to explore this part with ambition, presenting incredible settings and adventures very different from what we have seen before.
Perhaps the most anticipated film on the subject of the multiverse is Spider-Man: No Way Home, a film loaded with rumors in which the central talk is the return of the first Spider-Man actors at Sony, along with the villains we saw in those movies. Alfred Molina was the actor who already declared his return as Doctor Octopus in the MCU and about it Kevin Feige recently declared for AND Online: “People get a microphone, some people like to talk, some people like me … not so much.”
No Way Home opens in theaters on December 17.
