Wolverine is the most popular member of the X-Men and one of the most popular characters in all of American comics, basically only second to Batman. While people probably think of Wolverine and the X-Men as being connected and inseparable, Wolverine wasn’t actually introduced in the pages of Uncanny X-Men; he started life as an antagonist in The Incredible Hulk, an agent of the Canadian government who was sent after the Hulk when Bruce Banner took a trip to The Great White North. Even though Wolverine was just a one-shot villain of the week for Hulk, this has nevertheless tied the two characters together in an interesting way that remains to this day.

There’s a rumor, reported by Giant Freakin’ Robot, that Marvel is developing a Wolverine vs Hulk movie starring Mark Ruffalo and whoever gets cast as Wolverine. It’s probably as close as we’re going to get to another solo Hulk film and it would pretty great to see Wolverine introduced once again in a way that connects him to the Hulk.

And let’s be honest, Wolverine and the Hulk are going to make for one of the coolest action sequences in any comic book movie ever made. It’s going to be so much more fun than the way-too-busy sea of characters at the end of Endgame.

It’s doubtful that Hugh Jackman will be playing Wolverine in the MCU, he gave the character a beautiful sawn song in Logan and wants that to be his last word on the character.

But there’s a rumor going around that Jackman could be talked into popping the claws one last time in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.

Marvel looks to be throwing the kitchen sink at this film, probably spurred on by how much hype DC generated for Crisis on Infinite Earths on the CW. Marvel is said to be looking to do something similar in the Dr. Strange sequel, with cameos from Toby Maguire and Hugh Jackman and basically anyone they can get. I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw the Japanese Spider-Man’s giant mecha Leopard and David Hasselhoff as Nick Fury in this thing. There’s really no point in having a multiverse if you don’t use it for fanservice, after all.
