Behind the Scenes[]

  • Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the second live-action incarnation of the character, following an incarnation also portrayed by Hugh Jackman with Troye Sivan as a younger version of Wolverine in 20th Century Fox's X-Men film series.
  • In 2015, Hugh Jackman stated that he planned to retire from playing Wolverine in 2017 with Logan, which was developed as Jackman's final outing as the character.[4] However, Ryan Reynolds often approached him to return for the role one more time so they could make a Wolverine-Deadpool crossover, as Jackman had enjoyed the first Deadpool film. Around 2022, Jackman finally decided to call Reynolds during a family road trip just as Reynolds prepared to meet with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige to discuss Deadpool & Wolverine, which led to Jackman joining the project to reprise his role as Wolverine for one more film.[5] Jackman initially retired because he felt the role was too demanding around 2013, but since 2017, he had had a break from it and done other things like dance or stage shows, making him find really fun to return as Wolverine.[6]
    • Upon announcing the film, Reynolds and Jackman quickly assured fans that despite Jackman's early promise to retire from Wolverine, Deadpool & Wolverine will not retcon the emotional events of Logan, claiming that the former film takes place before the latter's 2029 setting;[7] Jackman even reached out to Logan writer-director James Mangold to inform him that their film would not be contradicted in any ways, as he felt it was important to preserve the finality of Logan.[8] Feige was actually nervous over seeing Jackman back in the role and he advised him to not come back to "undo" the ending of Logan, but accepted Jackman's insistence after a long drive to return once he pointed out that the Wolverine he would play wouldn't be exactly the same Logan one.[9] In order for Wolverine to return, Jackman said that Marvel Studios came up with a plot device to move around the timelines and not mess the continuity of Fox's films.[10]
  • Anthony and Joe Russo have stated, had The Walt Disney Company acquired 20th Century Fox and thus regained the X-Men film rights prior to the development of Avengers: Infinity War, they would have had Wolverine leading a mutant team against Thanos and would have killed off all of Wolverine's teammates minus himself with the Snap to have a bloodthirsty Wolverine go after Thanos.[11]
  • Hugh Jackman's diet to develop the right physique for Deadpool & Wolverine involved him consuming eight thousand calories per day.[12] Jackman acknowledged this process as the hardest part of returning as Wolverine, as he had to eat like five or six meals every day because his body type is naturally skinny.[13]
  • Daniel Stevens was a stunt double for Hugh Jackman in the role of Wolverine.
