Regardless of whether The Wolverine is a success, Hugh Jackman is not committed to reprise his Wolverine role in any future projects beyond next year's X-Men: Days of Future Past.
The actor revealed details of his contract in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter and also confirmed that his role in X-Men: Days of Future Past sequel will be substantial.
All this leaves a question about whether he will return to X-Men once he completes the sequel. The actor has said that he would need a "pretty compelling reason" to return to the role, telling Entertainment Weekly: "I won't say never, because I'm still loving it. But there would have to be a pretty compelling reason."
