With Logan marking the last movie of Hugh Jackman playing Wolverine, video artist Yoko Higuchi has put together an extremely touching montage celebrating the Australian actor's 17-year portrayal of the Marvel superhero, set to Hurt, by Johnny Cash.
2017 will mark the final time Hugh Jackman will portray the role of Wolverine after 17 years of playing the character in every single film in the X-Men franchise since the year 2000. Although the fans were vocal about how unhappy they were of his casting, he has now become iconic as the rage filled mutant we all came to know and love. Many of us can’t imagine anyone else playing the role because of what Hugh Jackman did with the character. The actor has transcended acting and has fully embodied the character. And now with Jackman leaving the franchise, this is a tribute dedicated to the 17 years of Wolverine in the X-Men film series. Appearing in 9 films in total (including “Logan”), us fans really do want to say thank you for putting so much dedication in playing this part. You’ve graced our screens with blood-boiling rage mixed along with a deep sense of serenity. Thank you, Hugh Jackman, for making dreams come true. Thank you. We will miss you.
