Hugh Jackman Denies $100 Million WOLVERINE Deal
Rumors emerged this week that Hugh Jackman was eyeing a $100 million deal to extend his contract as 'Wolverine' for four additional movies.
Today, Jackman has spoken up and outright dismissed the claims.
"No it's not true," Jackman told EW. "I would never do that. I've never done that mainly because, for the fans and for me, each time I've Gone around there's been a really good reason to do it and I don't know what that reason is from here. I'm in the middle of making this and I just promoted the other and I'm really happy with the way The Wolverine came out."
