Watch: Hugh Jackman Talks Leaving Wolverine

Hugh Jackman recently appeared on LIVE with Kelly and Michael where the actor talked about leaving the role of Wolverine and doing his last movie as the character.

Jackman will reteam with James Mangold for the sequel to The Wolverine which has a March 3, 2017 release.

Jackman is asked what made him decide to leave, with Jackman recounting a conversation he had with Jerry Seinfeld in that it’s best to leave on a high note.

Jackman has played Wolverine for 17 years and first appeared back in the 2000 release of X-Men.

Jackman notes in the video he is more excited than ever to play Wolverine one last time.

“I am more excited about this movie than ever before. I just know in my gut it’s the right thing. Hopefully, in five years, I’m not coming back here going ‘why did I do that.’ It feels like the right time.”
