Huge jacked man Hugh Jackman has announced that his time playing Wolverine is nearly done, and that he will appear “one last time” as the beloved character.
Jackman made the following Instagram post earlier today, breaking the hearts of X-Men fans and naked butt enthusiasts worldwide.
Per reports in Variety, this means that the upcoming sequel to The Wolverine, set for release in March 2017, will likely be his final bow, and that he will not appear in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse.
Jackman has appeared as Wolverine in seven films so far, starting in 2000, in Bryan Singer‘s X-Men. Getting pumped for the role requires a pretty intense diet and exercise regimen, so after 15 years, old mate definitely deserves a break.
