Hugh Jackman 'In Wolverine Return Talks'
Aussie hunk reportedly in frame to play angry mutant in solo sequel...
The Aussie actor, 45, is claimed by Deadline to be in line to reprise his role as the adamantium-clawed mutant - and director James Mangold is apparently in discussions to write the sequel.
The Wolverine performed strongly at the box office this summer, becoming the second-highest grossing X-Men feature to date with a take of £257m globally.
Hugh had previously expressed his doubts about playing Logan/Wolverine again, but the sequel is unlikely to proceed without him on board.
Lauren Shuler Donner is reportedly attached to produce the new movie.
