Last month, Hugh Jackman took to social media to encourage fans to tell him what they’d like to see in the upcoming third Wolverine solo movie, which will also mark his final outing as the fan-favourite mutant. Having had time to sift through the responses, Jackman has now spoken to the Sydney Confidential Podcast about what came up:
“There were a lot of calls for Victor Creed to come back, there was,” states Jackman. “I must admit I was quite heartened by a number of people saying please don’t make it the last, but I’m really excited about this last one, and if you’re a comic book fan, then the words ‘berserker rage’ came up a lot, so if you know Wolverine, you’ll understand.”
Victor Creed – a.k.a. Sabretooth – has twice appeared in the X-Men franchise, with Tyler Mane portraying the character in the original X-Men, and Liev Schreiber appearing in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. And as for ‘beserker rage’… well, hopefully we will get to see that unleashed when Jackman dons the claws for the final time on March 3rd 2017.
