Hugh Jackman wants Wolverine to join ‘The Avengers’

"There's no doubt he'd get in a fight with Hulk at some point," says Australian actor

Hugh Jackman has said he would be interested in seeing Wolverine join the cast of The Avengers.

Jackman’s steel-clawed character can currently be seen in X Men: Days Of Future Past but admits that an offer to join Joss Whedon’s gang of super-powered characters would be too tempting to turn down.

“I would love to see him as part of the Avengers,” Jackman told IGN. “Because there’s a great dysfunction among that team, and I think Wolverine would fit right into that. He’d like that.”

“There’s no doubt he’d get in a fight with Hulk at some point,” he continues. “Those two bad, rage-filled characters are going to square off at some point. It would be quite fun. I don’t know how much fun to shoot it would be because I’m sure I’d be on the worst end of it, but hey, he can heal.”

X-Men: Days Of Future Past is directed by Brian Singer, who also produced and wrote 2011’s First Class. Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin and Ellen Page all confirmed to appear. The film will be released on May 22 in the UK.
