Hugh Jackman Interested in Wolverine-Avengers Crossover
If Hugh Jackman gets his way, Wolverine could join the ranks of the Avengers at some point.
In a new interview with IGN, Jackman confessed he'd be more than willing to join the likes of Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johannson and the rest of the superhero crew for a crossover.
"I would love to see him as part of 'The Avengers'" he said. "Because there's a great dysfunction among that team and I think Wolverine would fit right into that. He'd like that."
Jackman continued: "There's no doubt he'd get in a fight with Hulk at some point," he said. "Those two bad, rage-filled characters are going to square off at some point. It would be quite fun. I don't know how much fun to shoot it would be because I'm sure I'd be on the worst end of it, but hey, he can heal."
Jackman was recently seen in Prisoners alongside Jake Gyllenhaal. Other upcoming big screen projects include X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Greatest Showman on Earth. Other films include The Wolverine and the Oscar-nominated movie adaptation of Les Miserables.
Jackman has appeared on Broadway in Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway, A Steady Rain and The Boy From Oz -- for which he won the 2004 Tony Award -- as well as off-Broadway's Carousel. In 2012, Jackman was honored with a Tony Award Special Award for Extraordinary Contribution to the Theatre Community.
