Hugh Jackman has reportedly been offered $100 million to star in four more motion pictures as his iconic superhero character Wolverine
Hugh Jackman has reportedly been offered $100 million to star in four more Wolverine movies.
The veteran actor has played the claw-wielding superhero a staggering six times on the big screen - including the recently released 'The Wolverine' - and movie studio 20th Century Fox is eager to sign him up for more movies, according to the National Enquirer.
However, it is claimed the 44-year-old actor is wary about accepting the offer as he doesn't want to be locked into a multi-year deal.
A source said: "Hugh has a very big decision to make. It's not every day an actor gets offered this kind of pay check, but Hugh vowed never to lock himself into any multi-picture deals after 'X-Men'.
"He hasn't given any kind of answer yet, so at least he's considering it."
Jackman first played the mutant hero in 2000's 'X-Men' and starred in the film's two sequels in 2003 and 2006 before leading his own spin-off movie, 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine', in 2009.
Following a small cameo in 2011's 'X-Men: First Class', the actor reprised the part again this summer with 'The Wolverine' earning critical acclaim.
The Australian actor will reunite with his 'X-Men' co-stars once again for blockbuster superhero movie, 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', in 2014.
