The Latest Wolverine Rumor Is Great News for Avengers: Secret Wars

The latest rumors for Wolverine’s expanded role in Avengers: Secret Wars are great news for his character–and for the entire Multiverse Saga.

Hugh Jackman is officially set to reprise his role as Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s upcoming film, Deadpool 3. However, the Phase 5 film is far from the end for the actor’s iconic portrayal of the fan-favorite mutant. In fact, thanks to the latest rumors circulating in the Marvel fandom, the character may have a major role to play in the conclusion of the Multiverse Saga, specifically in Avengers: Secret Wars. While unconfirmed, this rumor has understandably set the Marvel fanbase aflame with theories regarding what Jackman’s role in the film might be.

Jackman has portrayed Wolverine in nine different films, spanning all the way from 2000’s X-Men to 2017’s Logan. Now, after a brief reprieve wherein he claimed to have retired from the role, Jackman is officially returning alongside Ryan Reynolds’s Wade Wilson in Deadpool 3. The film is currently slated to release in 2024, though the ongoing writers’ and actors’ strikes have left the exact release date uncertain. Nevertheless, according to the latest rumors, 2024 won’t be the last time that Jackman reprises his iconic role, indicating very exciting things to come for the Multiverse Saga–and the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole.

The Latest Wolverine Rumors, Explained

According to the latest rumors, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine will have a major role in Avengers: Secret Wars. The upcoming sixth Avengers film is set to bring Phase 6 of the MCU and the ongoing Multiverse Saga to a thrilling conclusion in an adaptation of Jonathan Hickman’s 2015 Secret Wars crossover event from Marvel Comics. The storyline sees characters from multiple different universes fight on Battleworld in an incursion event that only leaves one universe standing. Now, it appears as though Hugh Jackman’s iconic mutant is being set up to take on a major role in the MCU’s adaption of this beloved event, which is currently set to hit theaters in May of 2027, though reports suggest that it may be delayed again in the aftermath of the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes.

In lieu of the MCU introducing its own Wolverine prior to Avengers: Secret Wars, the latest rumors in the Marvel fanbase suggest that Jackman was in talks to take on a “major role” in the film prior to the beginning of the SAG-AFTRA strike. While all negotiations are paused until the conclusion of the strike, the stage is set for Jackman’s Wolverine to be a leading character in the upcoming film. While this could simply be a rumor started by overeager fans, Jackman’s long history with Marvel and upcoming return in Deadpool 3 lend credence to the idea that he will make a prominent appearance in the company’s biggest cinematic crossover event of all time.
