Hugh Jackman Is Pretty Sure Wolverine 3 Will Be His Last

SFX spoke with Jackman and asked the following question:
So where do you want to take Logan next in Wolverine 3?
I don’t know yet. We’re talking it through. I still am very ambitious for the character. And tonally I feel like we corrected the ship with the last one. But I feel we can still go further, in a way. If I did another one I’m 99.9% sure it would be the last, so that will inform what it is for me.
So, if he retires his claws, who should take over for him? Who would you like to see as the next incarnation of Logan?
