According to ComicBook.com on April 4, in a question answer session among actors from Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past", Hugh Jackman answers a fan question in regards to who would probably make the next best Wolverine character in future "X-Men" films. Jackman expressed Heath Ledger would be a great candidate.

In a previous statement, Jackman did state that Channing Tatum would've made a good Wolverine, however, it seems he has more than one favorite.

“Originally, when I played it, when he was alive, God rest his soul, I thought Heath Ledger could be a good young version of him".

After having played the Logan character for 15 years, Jackman did express it would feel "weird" to not partake in the role again.

“It would be a little weird. “I know it’s going to happen".

James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender also bantered about with Jackman initially with the question as Jackman jokingly referred to Will Farrell as the next Wolverine, but he quickly ascertained the possibility that studios would take it as such a great idea. He jokingly reneged it as well.

Ledger, who also played the villainous role in "The Dark Knight", so Jackman's spur of the moment decision may have been influenced by the fact Ledger played in a previous comic book movie. Also, he played such a convincing behavior portraying a psychotic that it would stand to reason he could play a convincing Wolverine.

Jackman was later asked if he was going to appear in another "Wolverine" stand alone film. Jackman stated, "There's a good chance".

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" appears in theaters come May 23.
