Wolverine Return: Doctor Strange 2 has Set Up Perfect Opportunity for Hugh Jackman’s Return
The upcoming movie of multiverse phase 4 has secretly set up the perfect Hugh Jackman as Wolverine Return in Doctor Strange 2.
Another Superhero based film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is on its way to being released, and as the release date comes near, new information has been revealed that is making the fans excited for it. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is a second Dr. Stephen Strange movie, which is going to go deep into the roots of the multiverse. The exploration of the multiverse means there are infinite possibilities for cameos and superhero collaborations.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will build from the events of the last premiere released, Spider-Man: No Way Home, in which Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield reprised their roles as Spider-men. In No Way Home, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker was struggling to find a way out from the bad treatment his friends and loved ones are facing due to him. So he went to Doctor Strange, who did find a spell that would make everybody forget who Peter Parker was.
However, during the casting of the spell to help Peter, it went wrong because of some disturbance, and it opened up the multiverse. As a result, the biggest villains of Spider-Man ever known came to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man universe, along with Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Men. In the end, Doctor Strange did send all of them back to their original universes. But, the next movie, Doctor Strange 2, will cover the consequences of opening up the multiverse mistakenly by Dr. Strange in the first place and is going to explore more of the multiverse.
Wolverine Return in Doctor Strange 2
In the upcoming movie, Doctor Strange 2, there will be many cameos of superheroes, one of which is confirmed is Professor X, played by Patrick Stewart. The fans are pondering upon the possibilities of witnessing Professor X’s fellow mutants in Doctor Strange 2.
Hugh Michael Jackman is an Australian actor who became famous for the role of James ‘Logan’ Howlett, aka Wolverine, in the X-Men series. This actor earned the Guinness World Record for “longest career as a live-action Marvel Character.” Hugh Michael, as Wolverine, has appeared in a total of nine movies, and in 2017, the last of Logan was present.
After Wolverine’s retirement, the fans have hoped for his return as an adamantium-clawed Superhero in MCU. Marvel acquired rights to X-Men in the year 2019, and since then, the fans have been waiting for X-Men to be introduced in MCU and another chance to see the mutants. Doctor Strange 2 can make the waiting end; as for Hugh Jackman, Wolverine, the film offers the perfect introduction.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will witness Doctor Stephan Strange in many alternate dimensions, where one of which holds his zombie counterpart. Doctor Strange 2 can pick up the universe of the canceled X-Men: Animated Series universe, which can become another reality for him to negotiate as an animation himself. The X-Men: Animated Series, which was canceled, is set to be rebooted as X-Men’97 in the year 2023. The X-Men: Animated Series’s universe will empower one of the main characters, Wolverine, to reprise Hugh Jackman’s role in Doctor Strange 2.
The fusion of X-Men and MCU does justify the “madness” the film will explore. After all, the animated Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine return will uphold the appreciation of the actor’s hard work. As for the Wolverine role, Hugh Jackman has received many awards, such as Two Tony Awards, a Grammy Award, an Emmy Award, and a Golden Globe Award. Not only these, but he has also received an Academy Award Nomination and was appointed as the Queen’s Companion of the Order of Australia in the year 2019.
The last of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine ended with a tragic death; thus, the MCU shouldn’t rush with reviving the character, instead could bring him back in an animated cameo way, which would be more respectful for Hugh Jackman’s character. The Wolverine return in an animated way would complement the movie’s plot. And it is safe to expect surprises because there will definitely be a lot of them in the Multiverse of Madness, releasing on May 6, 2022.
