Hugh Jackman is the epitome of Wolverine. The X-Men character enjoyed three X-Men movies with Fox, before appearing in a separate timeline in the three sequels. Jackman then completed the iconic Marvel character’s journey in a few solo films, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Wolverine and Logan. Though the last film killed Jackman’s version of the character, his return may be just around the corner, bringing him face-to-face with the Avengers.
Jackman posted a slew of clues to his Instagram account this week.
The Australian actor started by reposting concept art of Wolverine’s arm from famed artist Bosslogic.
The star, who hasn’t named Wolverine since his version died in 2017, followed another photo after that.
He posted a photo of himself with his arm around Marvel Cinematic Universe maestro Kevin Feige – the director of the entire MCU timeline.

Wolverine can be played by Hugh Jackman again
Jackman’s portrayal of Wolverine even changed the comic book version of the hero, so his presence in the MCU would be huge for fans of the franchise.
Plus, since Fox — and its various X-Men movies — were recently bought by Disney, the previous version of Logan could indeed be included in the ongoing MCU.
He can be a brand new version of the character or a revival of the previously deceased hero.
According to well-known leaker Grace Randolph, Feige has been looking to get Jackman back on the scene for a while now.

Randolph reported last year: “[Feige] wants to bring Hugh Jackman back for one last round as Wolverine. Again, this is Kevin Feige’s wish list now. We’ll see what he can actually do.” (via Cosmic Book)
This isn’t entirely out of the question, as the next Spider-Man movie, No Way Home, will reportedly include the multiverse and time travel.
The next Spidey movie will reportedly feature former Spider-Men Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield – could this also be the start of Jackman’s return as Wolverine?
While promoting Logan in 2017, Jackman spoke candidly about the possibility of joining the MCU.

Jackman said, “The Avengers would prove too much to dismiss.
“I always like the idea of him [Wolverine] within that dynamic, with the Hulk of course, with Iron Man, but there are a lot of smarter people with MBAs who can’t figure that out [laughter].”
He added: “You never know. Right now, honestly, if I really had them there I probably wouldn’t have said this is the last one [about Logan].”
Jackman then spoke about Logan being the last time he would play Wolverine, adding, “It just feels like now is the right time.”
