Hugh Jackman Explains He Retired From Wolverine Because He Wasn’t “Enjoying It” And “It Hurt”

Hugh Jackman he’s had a long, fantastic career as Wolverine and before Deadpool and Wolverine he arrived, he retired from the role. After he did Loganhe distanced himself from Wolverine and in a recent interview with Peoplehe explained why.

Jackman shared, “Probably 10 years ago I was at the point where I was like, I’m not having fun. It hurt. It was tough.”

He continued to share what has helped him come back for more, saying, “But I had a break and I danced a lot. I did theater shows. And so when I came back to it, it was really fun.”

His co-star Ryan Reynolds chimed in to add: “When Hugh Jackman comes at you at 150 Australian miles an hour, you feel like there’s no way you’re not going to die in four seconds. And I’ll never forget that. And thank God…” I’m in mask, because under the mask my face says, ‘Oh God!'”

Reynolds also recalled his first meeting with Jackman on the set of The origins of X-Men: Wolverinesaying, “I was stunned. And I was nervous as hell.”

He added: “I was walking through the trailers, jet lagged, disoriented, feeling really green and a little out of my league, and there was no script to look at. It was just like, what’s going to happen?

“And I heard my name, ‘Ryan!’ between these caravans as I walked And so it was [Hugh]. Just the fact that you knew my name meant so much to me. And you came up to me and hugged me tight and said, ‘Welcome aboard.'”

Marvel Studios presents their most significant mistake to date: “Deadpool and Wolverine. A listless Wade Wilson struggles in civilian life.

“His days as a morally flexible mercenary, Deadpool, are behind him. When his home planet faces an existential threat, Wade must, reluctantly, suit up again as an even more reluctant… reluctant? More reluctant?

“He has to convince a reluctant Wolverine to – Fu-k. The synopses are so damn stupid.

The existential threat in the film is Cassandra Nova (Emma Corrin), who is the evil twin sister of Professor Charles Xavier of the X-Men who poses a threat to the multiverse.
