The nine-time Wolverine actor took to his social media to post video of himself shaving off his muttonchops for the last time.
“My wife is going to be very happy,” Jackman posted on Twitter.
The third Wolverine movie will also be the last X-Men film for Patrick Stewart who reprises as Professor X.
No plot details are known for The Wolverine 3, but Hugh Jackman did previously tease some sort of adaptation of the Marvel Comics “Old Man Logan” storyline. In addition, Hugh Jackman asked fans what they most wanted to see in his last outing as the adamantium-wielding bersker-raging mutie with fans responding the yellow Wolverine suit and another battle versus Sabretooth.
It’s also unknown what will happen following the departure of Hugh Jackman from the Wolverine role: Will Fox reboot the character? Or will Fox go the James Bond route with Wolverine and simply use a new actor?
Hugh Jackman first appeared as Logan and Wolverine in the 2000 Bryan Singer X-Men movie.
The untitled “Wolverine” 3 has a March 3 2017 release directed by James Mangold also starring Elizabeth Rodriguez, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Doris Morgado and Eriq La Salle.
