Default Re: Aynone else kinda done with Jackman's Wolverine?

Jackman owns the role, the same way Christopher Reeve owned the Superman role. Jackman will be the gold standard against which all other actors are measured in the role.

For aging issues, I think Jackman might be able to do this one or possibly two more times. But here he is 9 years after X-men, playing a character that doesn't age. At some point it becomes an impossibility. He'll be 41 in October, and by the time he reaches 50, he will probably be noticably aged from his 32 year old appearance in X-men.

Regardless, whoever takes on the roll will have some big shoes to fill.
