After recently retiring as Wolverine, Hugh Jackman could be returning as Wolverine.
According to Sebastian Stan, who plays Bucky Barnes aka the Winter Soldier in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Jackman is thinking about a potential X-Men and Avengers crossover.
Speaking at an Ace Comic Con panel (via comicbook.com), Stan said: "Recently I happened to be sitting next to Hugh Jackman.
"I didn't know what other awkward thing I could talk about but to be like, 'Am I going to see you soon?' I don't know.
"But he said a couple of things to me and I'll just leave it at that. Otherwise, I feel like I'm going to get into trouble with somebody.
"I asked him because I kept thinking... Logan was supposed to be the last Wolverine thing or whatever and he said to me, well I think he publicly said out there, which was like he's been thinking about it and it's been on his mind. So, I don't... he may be."
Jackman previously said that following Logan, he would definitely be hanging up his adamantium claws after nine movies playing the superhero.
However, news of his potential return comes after Disney bought 21st Century Fox's entertainment assets for $52.4 billion (£39bn).
Before the Disney/Fox deal was officially confirmed, Jackman revealed: "It's interesting, because for the whole 17 years I kept thinking, 'That would be so great', like I would love to see, particularly, Iron Man and the Hulk and Wolverine together.
"And every time I saw an Avengers movie, I could just see Wolverine in the middle of all of them like, punching them all on the head.
"But it was like, 'Oh well, that's not gonna happen,' and it was interesting just when I first saw that headline – it was just the possibility of it and who knows what's gonna happen, obviously – I was like, 'Hang on!'
"But I think, unfortunately, the ship has sailed for me, but for someone else I would like to see Wolverine in there."
