Only one actor played Wolverine in the films, and, recalling the popular X-Men film franchise, we represent precisely his face and figure. Simply put, Wolverine is Hugh Jackman.

Thanks to the famous yellow costume and impressive Wolverine muscles, he stood apart from his first appearance in 1974 in the Incredible Hulk issue. And for forty years, he has been regularly portrayed as part of the X-Men, the Avengers team, and the lesser-known Canadian Alpha unit. Hugh Jackman, by the way, the winner of the Tony and Emmy Continue reading
