As the newest Marvel film “Logan” hits theaters next weekend, we begin to look back at Hugh Jackman’s illustrious portrayal of Wolverine. After playing the character for 17-years, Jackman announced that “Logan” will be his final film as the renowned mutant.
However, news has surfaced as to who is really to blame for this decision: JERRY SEINFELD.
This past week, Jackman visited The Tonight Show and told host Jimmy Fallon that he asked his good friend, Jerry Seinfeld, how he knew when to wrap up his series “Seinfeld” after 9 seasons. Seinfeld told him, “Look, when you’re creating something, it’s very important not to run yourself dry. It’s not about finishing on top necessarily, but making sure that you, creatively, still have got something left which propels you into whatever’s next.” Those words stuck with Jackman and he went home and told his wife that this film would be his last as the Wolverine.
Come on, Jerry. We love you so much. Don’t you know how much of an influence you have on people? “Season 9” of Seinfeld wasn’t even that good! Now Marvel will probably just wait a few years and reboot the whole series and recast Wolverine.
