It looks as if Hugh Jackman has opened up on why he is only unleashing his claws as Wolverine one more time and it is actually because of Jerry Seinfeld of all people. Comic fans around the globe who can’t picture anyone else as their favorite X-Men might soon be angry at the comedian for unintentionally turning the star away from any future as Logan on the big screen.
So how did it all happen? Jackman brought it up on ‘ Live! With Kelly and Michael’ about how Seinfeld ended his 17 year run as the mutant who we all know and love.
According to Jackman:
“I was having a chat with [Seinfeld] about a year ago, at his birthday, and he was talking about why he finished [Seinfeld]. He said he’d always had this feeling and belief that you never know when either your energy or the audience’s energy is going to dip over into people [saying] ‘Oh, please go.'”
That moment struck a cord with Jackman who probably didn’t want viewers to suffer the same fate as Marvel readers who have had too much exposure to Wolverine over the past few years. While he still loves playing the character he says that:
“It’s the greatest feeling. I’m more excited about this movie than ever before, and I just know in my gut it’s the right thing. Hopefully in five years, I’m not coming back here going, ‘Why did I do that?”
We hope you don’t feel that way either but as almost all of the casting is being rebooted in the near future. it might be a good time to let the character fade into the background for a movie or two before someone else plays him.
