Logan is officially a hit both at the box office and with critics. Many are calling it a perfect end to Hugh Jackman's run as the title character and even hailing it as a seminal superhero film, in the much the same way that Chris Nolan's Batman series was.



But now talk has turned to who should succeed Jackman as Wolverine in future movies. For fans who can't imagine another actor playing the role, the very least that can be done to help smooth over the transition would be to have Jackman involved in finding the next bearer of the adamantium claws. Speaking in an interview with Deadline, producer Simon Kinberg promised just that, saying:

Opening quote
"We haven't even thought of the next iteration of Wolverine. For all of us, we were keeping our fingers crossed that the audiences would respond to Logan the way they have. I can't visualize in my head another Wolverine but if that day ever comes, we would talk to Hugh about it."
Closing quote


After playing Wolverine through all of the X-Men's ups and downs, it's good to know that Hugh Jackman will still be involved when that time comes.
