Hugh Jackman Says "No $100M For More Wolverine"

One of the wildest rumors of recent times came earlier this week when it was suggested that actor Hugh Jackman was being courted to sign a deal worth $100 million for four more films featuring his Wolverine character.

It seemed ridiculous, especially in light of comments from Jackman a few months ago that he could well be moving on from the character after "X-Men: Days of Future Past" due to the inevitable fact he's not getting any younger and the workout routines aren't getting any e ...
