Jackman, who first appeared as Logan/Wolverine in 2000, has revealed he’ll be making a point of getting ready to play the beloved character in the superhero movie for a 2024 release.
“I learned that you can’t rush. I’ve learned it takes time,” Jackman said while appearing on “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?” last weekend.
″So we have six months from the time I finished [‘The Music Man’ on Broadway] until the time when I start filming and I don’t do any other work, I will be with my family and practice. This will be my job for six months.
Jackman told Wallace he was “really fit right now” and contributed his physical fitness to doing eight shows a week on Broadway.
“So I’m healthy. I have a good starting point. And excuses, chickens, run a mile. Start running now because I’m coming for you,” Jackman said.
Wallace Asked Jackman, whose character died in the 2017 film “Logan,” revealed that the upcoming “Deadpool” film is set at a time before his final appearance as Wolverine.
He added that he thinks he’s “done” with the character who is part of one of the highest-grossing film series of all time.
“Like I’m at peace with it, I get asked every day, in interviews or Ryan Reynolds phoning me ‘Can we do it again? “I’m like, ‘no, I’m done,'” Jackman said.
He added: “When I keep thinking about me and Ryan – about Deadpool and Wolverine, who are classic comic book rivals – there’s also a dynamic that I’ve never really had to deal with before as a than Wolverine.”
