What’s the first thing you think of when you hear or read the name Wolverine? Hugh Jackman’s face would probably be the first image to pop up in your mind, and rightfully so. Jackman’s portrayal of the character can pretty much be described in one word- grumpy, although he seemed more mellowed out in Logan.


With all that said, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine story saw the end of the tunnel after the events of Logan, and fans thought The Greatest Showman star was finally done playing the clawed mutant. Fast forward five years later, fan assumptions have proven incorrect as the 54-year-old agreed to reprise his role in the upcoming Deadpool 3 movie, much to the relief of the fans!

As things stand, Jackman seems to be pretty excited with the assurance of reprising his role as the mutant, who at all times seems to be in a raging frenzy whenever he fights. He’s been doing so ever since his breakthrough role in the X-Men film series, starting off with X-Men in 2000.

It seems like he’s planning to continue that tone he had set for the character in his upcoming MCU debut as well! During an interview with AP Entertainment, the Van Helsing star looked happy and cheerful. He had this to say about his next portrayal of Wolverine-

“I’m gonna tell you I’m gonna have the time of my life. I can tell you that I’ve started back at the gym and I’ve been eating a lot…It’s a lot of fun. It’s been five years, I never really though I’d come back and I’m really, really, excited about it. Actually, I do know a bit about the script but I’m not gonna tell ya”

The interviewer then asks if Howlett will be angrier this time around, to which Jackman said-

“There’s no choice. He’s definitely the angrier, grumpy, and he’s gonna take a lot of free shots at Ryan Reynolds let me tell you, physically that is!”

It seems like Jackman can’t stop pulling his friend’s leg, that’s quite the friendship that he and Ryan Reynolds have!

Hugh Jackman’s Humiliating Audition Incident Before Wolverine

The world knows Hugh Jackman as one of the most ‘angry’ looking actors, mainly because he’s been the face of the ever-grumpy Wolverine for over two decades.

But before the fame that Wolverine brought him, he was a young theatre actor whose only TV appearance was in the Australian TV series Correlli, with zero experience working on a movie set.

During an interview with Variety, the Bad Education star revealed the time when he showed up at an audition for the role of Sandra Bullock’s love interest in Miss Congeniality. According to him, he was blown away by Bullock’s expertise when reading for the audition with her-

“Holy shit! She’s amazing! And so quick and fast…I’m not even vaguely up to speed here. It was the first time I’d tested [with another actor], I was impressed that she was in there.”

He eventually lost the role to Benjamin Bratt, for a role that he didn’t want in the first place at all! His agent had made him do it, who thought that it’d be a piece of cake, and that made him all the more humiliated-


“That’s humiliating, when your agent says, ‘I don’t want you to get this job, but just go get it.’ And then you don’t get it,”

It’s no doubt that that incident is quite humiliating. But looking back, Jackman couldn’t care less, he’s in the MCU now!

Deadpool 3 is slated for a theatrical release on 8 November 2024.
