Hugh Jackman Ignores Kevin Feige’s Advice Just For ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’

Jackman went against advice from Marvel boss Kevin Feige by joining the new Deadpool movie.

Hugh Jackman knew he ‘had to return’ as Wolverine although Kevin Feige didn’t want him to.

Jackman has been Wolverine since 2000, but his 2017 movie ‘Logan’ made it seem like that was the end of his journey. Feige recently told Empire that this movie was the perfect ending for Wolverine. He said he even told the actor that coming back after such a great ending may not be the best idea:

“I said, ‘Let me give you a piece of advice, Hugh. Don’t come back. You had the greatest ending in history with Logan. That’s not something we should undo.’”

Jackman wanted to return, though. He thought about joining Ryan Reynolds in ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ a lot during a long car drive, and he knew he wanted to do this:

“I was about an hour into the drive. And that question came into my head: ‘What do I want to do?’ And as soon as I asked the question, I wanted to do ‘Deadpool & Wolverine.’ I just knew it. I drove for another hour. Couldn’t stop thinking about it. And I got out of the car, called Ryan, and said, ‘Ryan, if you’ll have me, I’m in.’”

The Film Will Show A New Wolverine

Jackman teases that ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ will show some new sides of Wolverine that haven’t been shown before. He’ll wear Wolverine’s famous yellow outfit for the first time on the screen, and he is pretty excited about it:

“We almost did it in ‘The Wolverine.’ But from the moment I put it on here, I was like, ‘How did we never do this?’ It looked so right, it felt so right. I was like, ‘That’s him.’ There are different sides of Wolverine we haven’t seen before in the movies. It was exciting for me.”

‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ brings Wolverine into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But don’t worry, you don’t need to watch any other movies to understand this one.

‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ is set to hit theaters on July 26, 2024.
