Hugh Jackman has teased the next 'Wolverine' movie will be "very different" to the others

Hugh Jackman has teased the next 'Wolverine' movie will be "very different" to the others.

The 47-year-old actor recently finished filming the latest outing in the hit franchise and though he insists he can't give any details about the movie - which has not yet released a trailer, promotional poster or even a title - he promised there'll be some new details released within the next week.

He told ET Online: "We've finished shooting. I just saw [director] Jim Mangold today. He's editing away and finishing that.

"There's going to be some stuff coming out in the next week or so. That's all I'll say. I'm not good. I'm the kind of person who tells everybody everything. Basically it's going to be different. Very different in tone and hopefully to anything we've done."

It has previously been speculated that Mark Millar's 2008-2009 storyline 'Old Man Logan', which tells the tale of an aged Wolverine, would be the inspiration for the film.

And when quizzed about the possibility of whether Wolverine "is older" in the new movie, the actor smiled and said: "Which is a good thing. Easy for me to play."

The Australian star previously confirmed 'Wolverine 3' will be his last outing as the titular mutant, who he first portrayed in 2000's 'X-Men'.

He said: "It just felt like it was the right time to do it. And let's be honest, 17 years. I never thought in a million years it would last, so I'm so grateful to the fans for the opportunity of playing it.

"I kind of have in my head what we're going to do in this last one. It just feels like this is the perfect way to go out."

Grey-haired, boozy and ailing, Logan (Jackman) is caring for the now elderly Charles Xavier (Stewart) when he encounters a young mutant girl, Laura (Keen). A glorious swansong for Wolverine; the world-weary tone, low-key setting and ballsy climax really impress. First class.
