Sounds about right. Hutch Parker actually made this admission to me on Thursday afternoon when I spoke about all things X-Men with The Wolverine, Days Of Future Past, Apocalypse, Logan, and Dark Phoenix producer. Of course, it’s going to be tricky for the X-Men franchise to either flourish without the presence of Wolverine, or to try and bring the mutant back into the fold without Hugh Jackman. I mean, just imagine trying to step into the humungous void that the Australian has left behind as the character, especially when you consider just how superb his farewell actually was. In fact, everything about his farewell scene, from Dafne Keen’s performance as X-23 to Jackman’s work as Wolverine and not forgetting James Mangold’s direction, was handled so superbly that the director himself recently insisted to me that the character’s death actually made for a happy ending.
