Hugh Jackman says goodbye to Wolverine with Logan

After 17 years playing Wolverine in the X-Men movies, Hugh Jackman will say good by the mutant superhero in his latest film, Logan.

In Logan, Wolverine will be seen in a way we've never seen him before - older, more grizzled and working as a limo driver to support a frail Professor Charles Xavier.

"I was very clear this was the last one when we were making it. I don't think I could've made this movie unless I knew that," Jackman told BBC.


"This was the version of the movie I wanted to make - and I was surprised the studio said yes - because I felt deep down we hadn't fully cracked it.

"And I don't think I was fully OK with it until I saw it, because even though I had a good feeling, you never know until you see the final product if it's something you know you can sleep with for the rest of your life" he said.

Jackman also insists he will never return to the role, even for cameos or spin-off films.

"I'm going home - it's been a great party, thank you," he says. "I'm putting my pyjamas on and going to bed."

Jackman's next film project, The Greatest Showman, tells the story of PT Barnum - the founder of the famous Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey Circus.

After that, the star says he hopes to return to the London stage, almost 20 years since he last appeared.
