Probably one of the most memorable and iconic characters in the “X-Men” series and movies, Wolverine has gained the attention of fans both old and new. The popularity of the character can also be attributed to Hugh Jackman, the actor who played Wolverine for 17 glorious years. Not only did he play the part; he produced some of the movies as well, especially “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” Although there were only three movies that put Wolverine as the main character, he was still very much present in all other “X-Men” films, whether the young version or old, even as just a cameo.

Hugh Jackman retires as Wolverine

His immense popularity is why fans are still rooting for the actor to play as Wolverine in future films.

Although he did not exactly match what Wolverine in the comics looks like, many still agree that he played the “always pissed off clawed guy” pretty well. There are even some calls to unite the “X-Men” and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Wolverine smack in the middle of it all.

If this does happen, however, Hugh Jackman will no longer be a part of it. He has released a statement to the press that the film “Logan,” adapted from the comics “Old Man Logan,” is his last portrayal of the character.

Wolverine appears in a post-credit scene

In the recently released Marvel [VIDEO] Comics issue “X-Men Red #2,” Wolverine was shown in a single final page. He is seen as walking amongst the crowd of rallying anti-mutant protesters. A protester falls to the ground and Wolverine helps him get up. The man unknowingly tells Logan that he should flee else he will be trampled as well and proceeds to blame mutants for what’s happening.

Wolverine replies with, “Yeah...you’re probably right, bub. Got better things to do anyway.”

We have seen Wolverine’s post-credit appearance in several other Marvel issues of Captain America, The Mighty Thor, and Amazing Spider-Man. Axel Alonso, editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, says that Logan is really back from the dead. What’s more is that he is in possession of an Infinity Stone [VIDEO].

‘Wolverine: The Long Night’ podcast

Marvel is now moving on with Wolverine in a new media: podcasting. “Wolverine: The Long Night” is a 10-episode scripted podcast series. It is like moving back to radio drama where you not only hear the dialogue, you will also listen to what’s happening with the help of sound effects. This means you will “hear” and not “see” the action sequences. It is a great way to make use of one's imagination to visualize what is happening. Check out the teaser below.
