Hugh Jackman is currently on set filming the next ‘Wolverine’ movie, and he shared a startling photo on Instagram on Aug. 10 in what we’re pretty sure is his title character’s costume. The photo basically confirms that the movie will follow the ‘Old Man Logan’ storyline from the comics! Check out the pic right here.
Wolverine star Hugh Jackman posted a photo of himself looking quite a bit older than his 47 years, and fans immediately freaked out. Rest assured, though: he’s simply filming his next movie!
In the pic, he’s wearing a black shirt and windbreaker and standing in front of a pile of crispy fried fish, giving a thumbs-up. “Now that’s what I’m talking about!” he captioned the photo.
While many of the comments indicated that fans were aghast at how much older he looks in the photo (“OMG Hugh Jackman got really old really fast”; “You look absolutely knackered, get some sleep buddy”), some savvy Instagram users recognized that he was probably just in makeup for the upcoming Wolverine film, which might at least partially be based on the Old Man Logan storyline from the comic books. “Are you old man loganning?” one user cheekily asked.
If the next flick does include the Old Man Logan storyline, as fans have speculated, then we’ll get to see an aging Wolverine on an adventure in an alternate future of the Marvel Universe. Pretty major changes to the story, but exciting nonetheless!
In case you needed further proof that Hugh isn’t actually aging terribly, here’s an impressive video that he posted on Jul. 27:
