News and rumors have been flying since news broke that Disney is in talks to buy large pieces of Fox. Fox, of course houses a large piece of the Marvel Universe, including all Mutants (X-Men and all associated characters) and the Fantastic Four (and all major FF villains). The fact that (if this deal is goes through) all of Marvel’s characters could finally be under one studio could be a huge win for comic fans. Everyone wants to see Wolverine take on the Hulk on the big screen.

The biggest rumor and “News” currently circulating is the return of Hugh Jackman as everyone’s favorite mutant. This “news” has gained a lot of traction and even had several websites “confirm” that Jackman will indeed return. At this point it’s been confirmed that one of many factors for Hugh’s departure from the role was the impossibility of Wolverine to ever appear in the MCU. He even went as far as admitting his desire to square off against Iron Man, The Hulk and others. Naturally, many fans and writers assume that since the possibility of these match ups is on the horizon, Hugh Jackman would put the claws back on, and many sites have reported this as confirmed.

Unfortunately, fans won’t be that lucky. Jackman recently sat down with Collider to talk about The Greatest Showman and the subject of a return to the claws was brought up, and quickly put down by Jackman.

“It’s interesting because for the whole 17 years I kept thinking that would be so great, like I would love to see, particularly, Iron Man and the Hulk and Wolverine together. And every time I saw an Avengers movie I could just see Wolverine in the middle of all of them like punching them all on the head. But it was like, “Oh well, that’s not gonna happen,” and it was interesting just when I first saw that headline – it was just the possibility of it and who knows what’s gonna happen, obviously- I was like, “Hang on!” But I think, unfortunately, the ship has sailed for me, but for someone else I would like to see Wolverine in there.”

Jackman had previously stated that if an Avengers/X-men project was “on the table” when he made his decision of whether or not to retire from the character, he would have a difficult decision to make. But that didn’t happen, and to the great disappointment of this writer, the deal came a day late and a dollar short. So we’ll have to live with the masterpiece of Logan as the last appearance of Jackman as Wolverine.
