Rumor has it that Hugh Jackman was offered a massive $100M deal from 20th Century Fox to reprise his iconic role as Wolverine in four more movies. The Aussie actor, who is currently filming “X-Men: Days of Future Past” in Montreal, Canada, tells Entertainment Weekly that the report from National Enquirer is false.
“No it’s not true,”
“I would never do that. I’ve never done that mainly because, for the fans and for me, each time I’ve gone around there’s been a really good reason to do it and I don’t know what that reason is from here. I’m in the middle of making this and I just promoted the other and I’m really happy with the way ‘The Wolverine’ came out.”

Apparently a close friend of the Aussie movie star claimed that Jackman had been offered a ridiculous amount of money to seal the deal, but did not reveal whether or not all of the four movies were the stand-alone ones.
The insider claimed:
“Hugh has a big decision to make. It’s not every day an actor gets offered this kind of paycheck, but Hugh vowed never to lock himself into any multipicture deals after ‘X-Men’,”
“He hasn’t given any kind of answer yet, so at least he’s considering it.”
