Exclusive: Hugh Jackman In Talks To Join Star Wars

Whether or not its in the cards for him to ever return to the role of Marvels Wolverine it looks like Hugh Jackman is still on his way to a Disney owned property. Giant Freakin Robot has learned from our trusted and proven source that Hugh Jackman is currently in talks to join the Star Wars universe. Specifically he hqas being recruited to star in one of the popular series on Disney+.

Our source did not reveal exactly which series Hugh Jackman is poised to join though there are some intriguing possibilities. Considering his time as the rugged and no nonsense Logan it is easy to imagine Jackman bringing something like that persona to The Mandalorian. With the actual world of Mandalore seemingly bounty hunters is exciting.Andor could be another perfect place for Hugh Jackman to enter the Star Wars mythos. In fact the timing of the news potentially makes perfect sense for the upcoming series. The first two episodes of the premiere season are scheduled to stream on Disney+ on August 31 so its far too late for Jackman to star appear in season 1 but it was only weeks ago that it was announced the series has already been renewed for a second season.

Seems like a perfect time to start recruiting talent. And if the guy who gave us the first live action Wolverine is not going to play a bounty hunter in Star Wars it would still be easy imagine him as either an Imperial badass or a ruthless rebel along the lines of Diego Lunas Andor. Hugh Jackman could be in talks to appear in Star Wars Acolyte. There is not a lot known yet about the series but it will reportedly be set earlier in the in the High Republic era than any live action Star Wars project so far. Theres even been speculation that the High Republic era could become the primary timeline of Star Wars moving forward. No specific actors have yet been mentioned as being attached to Acolyte but Lucasfilm will no doubt want some big name talent in the series and Jackman would certainly fit the bill as either a hero or a villain.
