Avengers: Endgame director Joe Russo says that Marvel Cinematic Universe must stay away from Hugh Jackman’s iconic character Wolverine for a while.
Wolverine actually joined the X-Men to kill Charles Xavier. But, in 1975, Marvel relaunched the X-Men and created the Second Genesis team who is a new and international group. Therefore, the X-Men soon became one of the MCU’s best comics.
On the cinema, Wolverine was portrayed by Hugh Jackman, and Jackman made his debut as Wolverine in 2000’s X-Men. Jackman ultimately played the character for 16 years and reached the top with Logan, which was released in 2017.
During a recent conversation with ‘ComicBookMovie,’ Russo was promoting his Instagram live series Pizza Film School and also promoting the Natalie Erika James-directed horror movie, Relic. However, Russo approached Avengers again and explained if there had been any characters he wished he could’ve added to the mix. He said:
“I mean, Wolverine was always one of my favorite characters. Incredible Hulk #181 was one of the first comic books that I remember collecting, which was the first appearance of Wolverine. Hugh Jackman has done an incredible job with that character over the years, and I think they should take a break for a little while before someone else takes a crack at it.”
Marvel is not hurrying up for Wolverine’s role and is cares that the new role of Wolverine is very important embraced by fans. Because Hugh Jackman is an actor identified with the character of Wolverine, and it will not be easy to fill his place.
