Wolverine 3 has been confirmed as Hugh Jackman’s last outing as the beloved mutant superhero. But before the Aussie actor finally sheaths his claws one last time, he is gunning to make his last run as Logan a memorable one.
During a recent press interview at Sundance for the film Eddie and the Eagle, Jackman chimed in on the progress behind Wolverine 3. “We have a script. A full script,” reveals the actor. “To tell you, two days ago I got that the full finished—well, it’s not finished, but we’re getting super close—as you can see by the rate of my facial hair. That might give you a good clue that perhaps…yeah, it’s sooner rather than later.”
In terms of filming, Jackman confirms there hasn’t been a day set yet but he did confirm that Wolverine 3 will be his final time playing the X-Man. “I’ve told everyone, it’s my last one, for me I want it to be perfect, so the moment I know it’s perfect, bang, we’ll go.”
Wolverine 3 is slated to be released in early summer 2017.
