First came news that Robert Downey Jr. was mulling ending his time as Tony Stark/Iron Man for Marvel. Now comes news that Hugh Jackman may be done with Wolverine after this summer’s “The Wolverine” and Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past”. Jackman told Entertainment Weekly:  “I wasn’t even sure after the first [stand-alone] film if I would do another. I won’t say never, because I’m still loving it. But there would have to be a pretty compelling reason.”

We’ll see, especially if “The Wolverine” turns out to be a hit. It does beg the question if you could only have RDJ or Jackman remain in his iconic role, which one would you choose?
