"It would have to be very compelling for me to do it again," the actor said of playing the "X-Men" character.

"Great parts always outgrow the actors that play them. If you forget that, it’s at your own peril," the Australian Oscar winner said, adding that eventually he will have to leave all his roles, including Wolverine, behind. "They are working on it [X-Men] now, and it would have to be very compelling for me to do it again. I’ve been doing it for 10 years," he said.

When asked repeatedly about switching comic characters from Wolverine to another superhero or joining in on a dual comic book movie, Jackman said it wasn’t up to him.

"The great thing about comic books is that they threw Batman in with Wolverine or Spiderman. I have people ask me all the time, ‘Do you think Spider-Man can beat Wolverine?’ It’s part of the DNA," Jackman said. "Marvel wanted me to do a cameo in the first Spider-Man, but I couldn’t find my suit.

I could have turned up before it was such a big deal. But I don’t have that kind of power to make it happen."

Hugh keeps talking about exiting the role of Wolverine.  It's leading me to believe Logan is killed in DOFP as well as the entire Original Trilogy cast so that it can be rebooted with new actors.

ONTD who you would cast as the iconic X-Men characters?
