Logan’s James Mangold Thinks Hugh Jackman Could Play Wolverine In The MCU

Logan’s director, James Mangold has revealed that he thinks Hugh Jackman could eventually be convinced to play Wolverine in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).

Fans have been wanting to see Hugh Jackman play Wolverine in the MCU.

He was easily the best thing about the 20th Century Fox X-Men movies.

However, Jackman stated that Logan was going to be his last time playing the role.

Thankfully, Logan was one of the best ‘X-Men’ movies ever made.

I’d actually say that Logan is one of the best comic book movies ever made.

Anyway, the film’s director, James Mangold, thinks that Jackman could be convinced to play Wolverine in the MCU.

Here’s what Mangold told ComicBook.com about Hugh Jackman playing Wolverine in the MCU:

I’d be startled that Hugh was strapping it on again. The thing that I always want to know when I hear this is obviously, on the web, everyone trades in rumours. So, the nugget or the headline becomes the clickbait in the trade so that it would be, ‘Downey’s back,’ or ‘Jackman’s back,’ would be the headline, which people would then debate.

What I’d be curious about if any one of these things happened would be, what are they doing with it? Meaning, I would have no qualm about it if someone had a good idea.

If it’s basically, ‘I ran out of money and I needed a big paycheck, and I’m doing an empty film that cheapens the quality of the previous.’ Well, that would be its own sadness.
