Hugh Jackman Says Goodbye To Wolverine In Logan

During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Hugh Jackman discussed playing Wolverine for the ninth and final time in Logan, which debuts on March 3. Here are highlights:

On what his wife thought of the grizzled look: “She quite liked it, which gives me hope because I had to wear a wig for the old salt and pepper. I’m good for another 15 years I think.”

On finding the right actress for X-23: “That was one thing I was a pain about. I was like, ‘Dude, this is the greatest idea, but how are we going to pull this off? How do we find that girl?’ And we did.”

On how much he gave to the film: “There is not a frame of this film where I can’t say I didn’t put everything into it. I couldn’t have made this film if I didn’t make the decision within myself that this was the last one. I just didn’t compromise on anything. I was a pain to a lot of people, because I don’t get another shot at this. This is a character I love. I owe my career to this character.”

Patrick Stewart on if he is also done with the series: “Hugh has raised the flag that says goodbye. I haven’t done that yet.”
