Anyone who gave the slightest bit of credence to that story earlier this week that Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine was going to be in Avengers: Endgame is dangerously gullible. Jackman’s convincingly claimed he’s done with the character after the nigh-perfect swansong of Logan, and Marvel Studios will be eager to put their own spin on the franchise when they slot the mutants into the MCU.
Despite the chances of it happening being somewhere around ice cube in hell status, it’s still fun to imagine how Jackman’s Wolverine would fit into the movie, and this fan poster by Boss Logic gives us a peek at what it might look like (along with a subtle Deadpool cameo if you look closely).

I have to admit, watching Wolverine’s healing factor battling against Thanos’ Snap does sound like an incredibly cool scene, and everyone would go bananas if the Avengers reset the universe in Endgame only to recreate it with Jackman’s Wolverine.
That’s not going to happen, but something similar might. If Disney wants to bring mutants into the MCU, they’ve got the small problem of there being no mutants in any of the movies to date (in the MCU, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch were products of an experiment). What better way to bring them in then with a minimum amount of fuss than to say that in the process of undoing Thanos’ actions, there ended up being a few more superpowered people in the world than there were before?
Seriously, how awesome would it be if the post-credits scene in Avengers: Endgame was some kind of altercation in a bar, ending with a mysterious figure saying “let’s go, bub” followed by a familiar *snikt*?
