One of the most loved installments of Marvel Comics. X-Men: The Wolverine is all set to release its final movie which stars Hugh Jackman in it, titled as Logan this month.

Jackman has played the character of Wolverine for past 17 years. Now, that the final movie is about to release, it was asked whether he would be okay if somebody else played his character.

The X-Men actor had a thought or tow of his own regarding the matter.

In an interview with Indian critic and entertainment journalist, Rajeev Masand, the X-Men Origins: Wolverine star said he won't mind his character being played by someone else if its Shah Rukh Khan!

“I think I’ll be fine with it. I hope other people play it. May be Shah Rukh Khan could play it.” he said.

He went on to say, “The comic book series is so good because you have so many people interpreting this role. I think there are six origin stories. I’ll be really interested to see how I feel about it. I want it to be really great. But I don’t want it to be that much better than me. Just a little bit is fine. But if everyone is like ‘oh thank god..now,’ I might find that little difficult.”

We might not completely oppose the idea. Just look at SRK as Wolverine!
