Veteran actor Hugh Jackman has enjoyed a successful acting career spanning nearly three decades featuring in several box office hits. The talented actor is best known for his role as Wolverine in the "X-Men" film franchise.

The Australian-British actor portrayed the iconic mutant superhero for the better part of two decades. He currently holds the Guinness World Record for "longest career as a live-action Marvel superhero."

Jackman recently took to his Instagram page to share a clip from a soon-to-be-released interview for Marvel's new web series, "Marvel's Storyboards" with Joe Quesada.

In the video, Quesada asked Jackman for a brief demonstration of how to become Wolverine. The 51-year-old actor did not disappoint, and he got out of his chair and gave an impressive unscripted demonstration. Jackman jokingly captioned the video writing:

"One would think after thousands of interviews playing #wolverine, I'd be immune to the bait of being asked to leave my chair. Not so."

Hugh Jackman began portraying the role in the 2000 "X-Men" movie and went on to play the mutant superhero for nearly two decades and across nine films.

Some of these movies include "X2," "X-Men: The Last Stand," "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," "The Wolverine," "Days of Future Past," "X-Men: Apocalypse" and a brief cameo in "X-Men: First Class."

It was announced that the much-loved franchises would be rebooted, which means very soon a new actor will be unveiled for the legendary Wolverine role.

The James Mangold's movie gave a fitting end to the aging hero, and nearly three years after retiring from the Wolverine role, there is a consistent call from fans for the actor to take up the part one more time.

In 2017, Jackman finally hung up his Adamantium claws in the hit movie "Logan." The film received critical acclaim and was a huge commercial success, even earning an Oscar nomination.

Despite the continuous plea from fans, Jackman has insisted that his time as Wolverine is over and claimed he is looking forward to what a new actor can do with the part.

Marvel Studios recently acquired the rights of the "X-Men" and "Fantastic Four" franchises following the 2019 merger between Disney and Fox.

Following the merger, it was announced that the much-loved franchises would be rebooted, which means very soon a new actor will be unveiled for the legendary Wolverine role.

While no name has been announced by the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet, one sure thing is that Hugh Jackman won't be tempted into reprising the role.

Whoever takes up the Wolverine mantle has his work cut out for him in living up to the high standards set by Jackman during his 17-year reign as the mutant superhero.
