Hugh Jackman has played adamantium-clawed badass mutant Wolverine in SEVEN total films–or will have once X-Men: Days Of Future Past is released.
No single actor has ever played the same superhero as many times as Jackman, but according to the National Enquirer (bastion of journalistic accuracy that it is), seven times might not be sufficient–the tabloid reports that Jackman has been offered one hundred million dollars to play Wolverine in four upcoming films in a package deal (presumably by 20th Century Fox).
Assuming for the moment that there’s any accuracy to this claim, the buzz says it’s unlikely Jackman will take the deal. A supposed “close pal” of the actor told Comic Book Movie:
“Hugh has a big decision to make. It’s not every day an actor gets offered this kind of paycheck, but Hugh vowed never to lock himself into any multipicture deals after ‘X-Men.’ He hasn’t given any kind of answer yet, so at least he’s considering it.”
We’ll be keeping an eye on this, as we do with such rumors, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we hear something “official”.
