Industry insider Daniel Richtman suggests that the Australian actor, who initially retired the character after 2017’s Logan, might have met with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige to discuss his involvement in the upcoming Avengers: Secret Wars film.

This news arrives amid Jackman’s unexpected reappearance as Wolverine in Deadpool 3, marking his eighth outing as the beloved X-Men figure.
