For years, Hugh Jackman has been one of the most consistent actors of this century, coming back time and time again to reprise his role of Wolverine in the X-Men franchise.

At the moment, it’s unclear whether he’s referring to Apocalypse or Wolverine 3, but our best best is to think it’s the latter.

Today is a sad day for X-Men fans everywhere. Don’t go, Hugh!
