Hugh Jackman Ponders Wolverine Joining The MCU

Last night, Marvel and Sony finally made the announcement that almost all comic book movie fans have been waiting for: Spider-Man is going home to Marvel Studios! Even though there's still a lot to be skeptical about, considering the unknown variables behind the deal, it's probably safe to say that this is a step in the right direction for the future of the Spider-Man franchise.

Now with Spidey going back to Marvel, just in time for a possible introduction in Captain America: Civil War, followed by a solo film set for July 28, 2017, the only Marvel properties that remain outside of the MCU are the X-Men and the Fantastic Four. With Fox seeing a recent string of successes with The Wolverine and X-Men: Days of Future Past and an impressive upcoming lineup featuring a Fantastic Four reboot, Deadpool, X-Men: Apocalyspe, and Gambit, the chance we see some of Marvel's best in the MCU doesn't seem like it's going to happen anytime soon.

However, we can always hope, can't we? It's no secret that Hugh Jackman, who has played Wolverine a record seven times, would love to team up with Spider-Man and The Avengers, a fact he has stated in numerous interviews. Come see what he had to say following last night's huge news:

"There’s so many forces at play there, man, beyond what anyone would want. The thing I’ve always loved about the comic-book world is how the fun thing was how a writer of a comic book could just pull all these characters together and what became a Friday-night discussion of “it would be cool to see Iron Man fight Wolverine” and bang, Monday morning they’re working on it, you know. But that’s an idealized world."
