It was Scottish actor Dougray Scott – not Hugh Jackman – who was all set to play Wolverine in the X-Men movies, beginning with Bryan Singer's first foray back in 2000.
The Wolverine star said it took "years of sweat and steamed chicken" to get in shape for "the role of a lifetime".

If Taron Egerton is secretly in negotiations to play Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he's doing a good job hiding it.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige looked specifically to James Magold's 'Logan' as a touchstone for 'Endgame'.
"The moment I went and started acting school, not knowing I would have a career, was the first moment I felt like I'd found my tribe," the 50-year-old actor explains.

Spoilers! Major, huge spoilers for ‘Logan’ follow, so be warned and turned back if you’re yet to see the critically acclaimed superhero drama. ‘Logan’ director James Mangold has confirmed that he sowed the seeds for the new film’s heart-rending ending four years in his first X-Men spin-off ‘The Wolverine’.
20th Century Fox has released an emotional new video revealing Hugh Jackman’s last day on ‘Logan’, his final time playing X-Men hero Wolverine, and you can see the Aussie star choking up with emotion as he thanks the assembled cast and crew after the last “cut” is called. The ‘Logan’ “Legacy” trailer can be watched above, but you’ll want to skip ahead to the 01:48 mark to see Hugh’s final day on set. “It’s a really surreal day,” says Jackman, 17 years on from ‘X-Men’, his first film as Wolverine.
Appearing on Instagram, he revealed a candid look at one of his ‘Logan’ recording sessions… and it’s the funniest thing you’ll see all day. Clearly, Jackman is channelling a lot of rage in this hysterical (and slightly scary) new clip… But it’s absolutely amazing how easily he can turn it off at the very end of the video, when he calmly turns to the camera and simply says: “Hi”.
The immensely pleasing mock-rivalry between Ryan Reynolds – aka Deadpool – and Hugh Jackman – aka Wolverine – continues apace. And with Jackman out on the road promoting his latest X-Men outing ‘Logan’, it’s provided Reynolds with a bit of an open goal. Jackman dropped a few snaps over the weekend of the movie’s premiere in Beijing, picturing him with fans.

Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine has brought in the crowds, with ‘Logan’ delivering a sturdy $237.8 million (that’s just shy of £200 million) at the box office. Clearly the r-rated take on Jackman’s troubled hero has proved a draw, this latest iteration from director James Mangold being the most brooding and brutal yet. Presumed to be the final outing for Wolverine, it plays more like a late period John Wayne western than it does like a conventional superhero film’.
What would make the already pretty flipping moody X-Men movie ‘Logan’ even moodier? Taking out all the colour, that’s what. And according to director James Mangold, that could well be the plan. Asked by a fan to get right on converting the movie to monochrome on Twitter, he replied to the affirmative, saying simply: “Workin’ on it.” @AdamMcDee Workin' on it.
It took just one trailer for Hugh Jackman’s final turn as Wolverine in ‘Logan’ to go from being a film many struggled to get excited about, to one they couldn’t wait to see. The film is unlike any superhero movie before it. Essentially a western, it’s grisly, astoundingly mature and director James Mangold can’t believe he got to make it.
