Hugh Jackman is expected to return as Wolverine in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
The film’s extensive reshoots worried fans last week.
However, it’s unknown if Hugh Jackman’s addition is responsible.
Moreover, other insiders were unable to corroborate this story.
Still, sources have varying reputations; this one’s solid.
On July 6, 2021, I reported that Hugh Jackman teased coming back in the MCU.
I added then the possibility of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
What black magic did Disney use to convince Hugh Jackman to dust off his claws?
In short, Patrick Stewart.
Marvel Studios is silent about Stewart’s involvement.
Spider-Man: No Way Home fired off numerous denials and lies.
Similarly, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness protects its secrets in Fort Knox.
Insiders explained that director Sam Raimi wanted to top Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Hugh Jackman will reunite with Stewart. At first, neither of them were open to it.
On January 6, 2020 I leaked Professor X in the Doctor Strange sequel.
Afterward, Stewart admitted he met Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.
Since the legacy of 2017’s Logan was important to him, Stewart was done. Professor X died in Logan.
End of story.
Plot twist: Nope.
Professor X is a variant in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
In other words, Logan is untouched.
Those versions of Stewart’s Professor X and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine remain buried.
With Stewart on board, thus Hugh Jackman apparently said yes.
On the other hand, their roles won’t eat much screen time.
Well, that was before the reshoots.
At any rate, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse becomes an event.
Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine Returns In Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness
If Spider-Man: No Way Home climbs Avengers: Endgame heights, brace yourselves.
By embracing Fox’s X-Men history, the MCU won’t let the past die.
Unlike Lucasfilm and Star Wars, Feige wants to look fondly back.
After all, Feige debuted as an associate producer on 2000’s X-Men.
Therefore, it all makes sense.
Spider-Man: No Way Home covers the Sony era.
Feige was also an associate producer on 2002’s Spider-Man.
Likewise, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness pays homage to his Fox work.
For Marvel fans, it’s a love parade.
And Marvel Studios is the Dream Academy.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness casts its spells on May 6, 2022.
