Hugh Jackman has vowed to quit the X-Men franchise if his new spin-off flick X-Men Origins: Wolverine doesn’t do well at the box office.
I am really hoping that the Wolverine spin-off does well but I don’t know that I want to see anymore X-Men flicks. The third installment was really bad.
Jackman tells Moviehole
‘If it’s clear to us on May second or third that that’s gone, then I’ll walk away happily”, Jackman says of the audience appeal in the character. ”I’m not going to flog something – or flog a dead horse, or try and make movies that people don’t really want to go and see. I have no interest in that. Even no matter how much I love the character. So there are many prerequisites”.
He does confess to having plans for the character and that he has many plans for Wolverine.
“There’s a few story lines that are running my head which I think would be really cool, but unless the script is right, then I just don’t see the point in doing it. I’m probably at the point in my career where I don’t need it. And the last thing I want to do is just to push it on people, if it doesn’t warrant a full feature movie.”
