Is Wolverine’s Hugh Jackman in the wrong movie universe?

Attention Jason Mamoa, Hugh Jackman loves the sea. Like, really love it. A lot of.

The Australian actor first joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the 2000s as a land-based Wolverine X-Men (followed by three more appearances in X-Men sequels and Dead Pool), but it seems Jackman is better suited to DC’s underwater world.

In a new Q&A with vanity fairJackman was overflowing with appreciation for water.

When asked what person or thing he would most like to be reincarnated as, he replied, “seaweed.”

uh, why? “I love the sea,” he declared with a look that can only be imagined from afar. “It would be nice to float around and then get washed ashore sometimes.”

OK. But that was not the end of his ode to water. Oh no. “What is your idea of ​​perfect happiness?” the interviewer later asked. “Seeing my family thrive and being underwater,” came his slightly surreal reply. He didn’t elaborate on whether he meant those two things at the same time. But the Jackman family living in a kind of Atlantis scenario is a pleasing picture.

Although the 54-year-old actor recently announced his upcoming return as a bearded mutant alongside Ryan Reynolds’ main hero dead pool 3 – Expected release in 2024 – I can’t help but take Jackman’s will to be wet as an indication that he’s in the wrong cinematic universe.

Sure, the Hawaiian native Mamoa was the perfect image for the king of Atlantis — he made his merman debut in 2018 Aquaman, and again in its 2023 sequel, aquaman and the lost kingdom, but can anyone match Jackman’s passion for water?

Now, before anyone accuses me of calling for an Aquaman rewrite, I want to make it clear that I’m just stating facts.

Jackman belongs in the sea. I mean come on, the man is literally from Down Under. Is Wolverine’s Hugh Jackman in the wrong movie universe?
