Hugh Jackman wants Tom Hardy to take over Wolverine role

Hugh Jackman has played Wolverine for the past 17 years, he's not going to hand over his superhero status to anyone.

The actor, who announced earlier this year his upcoming appearance in 'Wolverine 3' will be his last, has been eyeing up names to replace him and believes the British star will be the best person to take over the adamantium claws.

Asked who he thinks should get the job, Jackman said: "I've been asked that question a lot, and I'm always like, 'I don't wanna make it too easy on the studio to replace me,' you know?"

He added to MTV News: "He's younger than me for sure. I think Tom Hardy would be a great Wolverine."

Jackman will star in the upcoming sequel, but the signs point to him not reprising his iconic role in the 2016 'X-Men: Apocalypse'.
