Hugh Jackman wants 'Wolverine' to join 'The Avengers'.

The 45-year-old actor has played the Marvel comic-book character for over ten years in films including 'X-men', 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' and currently in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', but he's now confessed his dream superhero movie would be for Wolverine to join characters such as Iron Man and Captain America in a sequel to 'The Avengers'.

He said: "I would love to see him as part of The Avengers because there's a great dysfunction among that team and I think Wolverine would fit right into that. He'd like that."

The 'Les Misérables' star also admitted that if Wolverine had to do battle with one of The Avengers before joining the group, he'd definitely come to blows with The Incredible Hulk, although he thinks the green giant would defeat his character.

He told IGN.com: "There's no doubt he'd get in a fight with Hulk at some point. Those two bad, rage-filled characters are going to square off at some point.

"It would be quite fun. I don't know how much fun to shoot it because I'm sure I'd be on the worst end of it, but hey, he can heal."

When the mutants of the future face extinction, they send Wolverine (Jackman) back in time to change destiny. The finale is too effects-heavy and non-fans may question whether it all makes sense, but the principal players are all on top form and the slick direction and smart writing are at times enormously entertaining.
