In 2017, Hugh Jackman bent for the last time as Wolverine in Logan. Disney has since bought the rights to Fox, including those to the X-Men. And even before Evan Peters appeared in WandaVision, fans speculated that other Fox superhero actors were about to enter the MCU.
After all, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield are rumored to be reprising their Sony Peter Parkers opposite Tom Holland in Spider-Man: No Way Home this Christmas.
While next year will see the release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Now Geekosity’s sources are claiming that Marvel Studios approached Jackman about re-recording Wolverine.
The 52-year-old was reportedly not open to proposals at first, as he did not want to undermine Logan’s epic conclusion in which Wolverine died.

Logan was a very definitive end for Wolverine, but could he be persuaded to return for the MCU?

Well, insiders claim that Jackman is now open to reading at least one script after Marvel boss Kevin Feige reassured him that this would not be the same Wolverine as Logan, but a different one from across the multiverse.
Maybe a bit like how Evan Peters’ Quicksilver in WandaVision turned out to be a man called Ralph Bohner – well for now anyway.
The outlet was told that if Jackman returns to the MCU as this alternate Wolverine, the studio would want him to appear in Deadpool 4.
After all, Ryan Reynolds continues as the Fox character and in the past had hoped to make a movie starring the Aussie star’s clawing superhero.

As for a second project, apparently that would be Secret Wars; a multiverse mashup storyline from the comics that featured multiple versions of the same Marvel characters in the same space.
Perhaps this would explain Giant Freakin Robot’s latest insider report that Marvel is interested in Taron Egerton and Karl Urban playing Wolverine.
Maybe one of them could be the MCU version and then Jackman could be one from another universe.
Interestingly, Sir Patrick Stewart (whose Professor X also died in Logan) admitted just a few months ago that he had been approached by Feige to return to the MCU.

Speak with Digital spySir Patrick said, “I met Kevin Feige a few months ago and we had long, long conversations.
And there have been moves and suggestions, including Charles Xavier.
“Here’s the problem … If we didn’t make Logan, we would. I would probably be ready to get in that wheelchair one more time and be Charles Xavier. But Logan changed all that. “
But what if Jackman could be coaxed too? Maybe Sir Patrick would be convinced to come back with him if his character had a different character too.
To add to this, there are rumors that the returning Sony villains in Spider-Man: No Way Home, such as Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock and Jamie Foxx’s Electro, look the same as the ones we’ve seen before, but in fact alternate versions are from their original characters.
This would help explain why they, like Wolverine and Professor X in Logan, for example, are no longer dead.
Regardless, our best theory is that Marvel Studios is indeed trying to outdo Avengers Endgame by having an Avengers 5 based on Secret Wars.
We think this would be a multiverse movie where you see all the Spider-Man actors together alongside different incarnations of other characters that we hope will include some Fox characters as well.
