Hugh Jackman Confirms That THE WOLVERINE 3 Will Be His Final X-MEN Movie

In the video above (apologies for the poor quality), Hugh Jackman reiterates that 2017's Wolverine movie will be the final time he plays the character. There have been rumours that Bryan Singer is moving on after X-Men: Apocalypse - presumably so the franchise can focus on the new actors playing younger versions of the likes of Cyclops and Jean Grey - and so it makes sense that The Wolverine 3 will be a farewell of sorts to the original timeline which kicked off back in 2000.

"It is my last time," Jackman said in an interview earlier today in his home country. "It just felt like it was the right time to do it. And let’s be honest, 17 years. I never thought in a million years it would last, so I’m so grateful to the fans for the opportunity of playing it.I kind of have in my head what we’re going to do in this last one. It just feels like this is the perfect way to go out."

It's not clear if a new Wolverine will be cast of whether Fox are going to put the character on the shelf for a few years, but Jackman's time as the clawed mutant is over.
