We learned that Patrick Stewart would have a significant role in Wolverine 3 as Professor X. We now have some new details from Hugh Jackman himself regarding his very last Wolverine movie. During an appearance on the Sydney Confidential podcast, the actor teased a couple things that fans might be interested in hearing. This is one of the conversations that went down, and in it, he teases the possible return of Sabretooth and the appearance of Wolverine’s berserker rage.
Sydney Confidential: “When you tweeted about Wolverine 3 the other day, the response was huge!”
Hugh Jackman: “Yeah, unbelievable.”
SC: “Give me something about Wolverine, what’s happening? You bringing it back to Australia? The story..?”
Jackman: “There were a lot of calls for Victor Creed to come back, there was… 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.”
It would be cool to see Victor Creed/Sabretooth get back in on the action. It would be even better if they got Liev Schreiber to reprise his role. As for the berserker rage, I’ve been waiting to see Wolverine do that since he was first introduced to the live-action movies. I still don’t think we’ve really, truly seen Jackman go into full-on berserker rage. We’ve seen it teased in the movies, but he’s never gone 100% berserker. That’s just my opinion, and we need to see that in this last film!
One other thing I would like to see is Wolverine finally put on his classic costume. I don’t think it will happen. But it’s still something I hope we get. Wolverine 3 is being directed by James Mangold, and it’s set to hit theaters on March 3rd, 2016.
