While bloggers and tweeples debated if the character could feasibly appear in Bryan Singer's forthcoming ensemble X-Men: Apocalypse or in Ryan Reynolds-starrer spin-off Deadpool, director James Mangold appeared to confirm that Jackman will be back in the forthcoming follow-up. He wrote on Twitter, "Can't wait to make this, HJ! Been toiling quietly a while now!"

Jackman made his debut as Wolverine in 2000's X-Men and is arguably the franchise's biggest star.



He has played the character six times thus far, most recently in X-Men: Days of Future Past alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy.





Jackman isn't the first to exit the longtime franchise. Jennifer Lawrence confirmed that Apocalypse will be her final film as the shape-shifting Mystique, after she replaced Rebecca Romijn in 2011's X-Men: First Class.
