Sure, he has expressed his true feelings about X3/Origins but back in the day, he had a lot of good words with those films.
I think he's not just saying "Yes I will be back for more X-Men films" just to keep people guessing whether he will back in a X-Men movie or not. It adds more suspense, really. I wouldn't be surprised if someone told him to say that to the press.
As I understand it, Jackman was contractually obligated
to do those films, that would include promoting those films. Jackman seems like a professional and generally nice guy, so of course he isn't going to bad mouth them during the production or promotion.
The difference now is that he is no longer contracted
, so Fox can't force him to do another if he doesn't want to, and he'll only want to if he feels it's going to be good.
