According to The Guardian on April 3, "X-Men: Days of Future Past's" Hugh Jackman suggested a thought that Channing Tatum could play the Wolverine character. Considering that the Australian actor will be stepping down as the adamantium-clawed hero, fans would have to wonder who could take on the mantle of Logan.

Jackman's response was unsure at first, but Tatum came to him as an afterthought.

"I don't know who could play him. Channing Tatum could probably play him".

Jackman has starred as the Wolverine in six films so far, and the 45- year old actor mentioned in September that he will be moving on with other acting ventures. It also started in the year 2000 and talks about how it took him a considerable amount of time to bury himself in the role.

"I've got to admit, when I took on the role, I was 30 – but I think I needed to be 40 before I really got it," he said. "Now I feel like, 'This guy's 200 (years old).' I'm enjoying it more now than I ever have, that's for sure".

Jokes have been made about Jackman taking on the Old Man Logan character role as an aged character in one of the Marvel story arcs on the internet as well, considering how it would be age appropriate for Jackman.

Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" combines characters from both the "X-Men: First Class" film and the modernized series of the "X-Men" movies bringing them together through Logan in a method of time travel brought on by Kitty Pride's psychic abilities.
