Hugh Jack has left his role as the movie version of Marvel's Wolverine behind - but that doesn't mean fans are ready to let go of the idea of him making some kind of surprise return to the role!
As you can see below, Hugh Jackman has posted a new video of himself working out in the gym, and after seeing how hard he's going on the weight training, a lot of Marvel fans have immediately jumped to just one conclusion: Jackman is making a surprise return as Wolverine!
Is it true? Almost certainly not. But impossibility of the situation isn't keeping Marvel fans from launching into all kinds of tinfoil hat theories about where Jackman's Wolverine will show up next:
Here's the video that started it all. Admittedly, the 50-year-old Jackman does look like he's going unusually hard on the fitness training here. He is rumored for the true-life adaptation of CIA drama The Good Spy - but other than that, it's hard to pinpoint which role Jackman could actually be training for.
Enter Marvel fans, with their wishful thinking theories:

Some fans are thoroughly convinced that there's only one reason in the world that Hugh Jackman ever works out in the gym:
...To be the best he is at what he does!
Fans have dubbed Jackman's Wolverine workout routines as the actor going "beast mode," so naturally that's just what some fan reactions are landing on!

This fan just went ahead and asked the question we're all wondering. So far... No answer.
Bloggers will say that he’s preparing for the cameo in Avengers 4 ????— MaicWithAMouth (@MaicolPezzi98) January 7, 2019
It only takes a little Marvel fan excitement and wishful thinking to get the online rumor mill churning with articles speculating about Wolverine making a return in an upcoming Marvel movie...
...No matter how clickbaitish that would be.

Ryan Reynolds has been trying for a year to get Hugh Jackman to put on the claws again for a Deadpool team-up - did he actually achieve that goal?
Deadpool 3 could answer that - or more likely just reveal that this crossover was never even close to happening. ?

This is pretty much where fandom adoration takes a turn for the creepy...
" One last time - Part 2 ! " ?— JoAB (@JoAB46466753) January 7, 2019
Jackman pretty much set himself up for this one, the moment he started marketing his Logan movie with the tagline of "One Last Time". But you know, in Hollywood, that proverbial 'dump truck full of money' can change everything.
Do you think there's any possible chance Hugh Jackman is preparing for a Wolverine return? Or is this all just more wishful thinking form fans? Let us know in the comments!
