In a new interview withVariety, the 49-year-old addressed what could have been, saying: "I was about to do X-Men 2 and a call came from my agent asking if I'd be interested in Bond".
This year Hugh Jackman finally said goodbye to the character Wolverine, giving his final performance as the mutant in the critically acclaimed Logan. Here's what Jackman had to say about it.
"But there was a time between "X-Men 3" and the first Wolverine movie when I could see the roles getting smaller", he told Variety.
Jackman was quick to decline though, saying: "I just felt the time that the scripts had become so unbelievable and insane, and I felt like they needed to become grittier and real". The main feeling I had was: "There, that's the character". Becoming James Bond is a pretty big deal considering only seven men have played him on the big screen in the franchise's history - however the allure clearly didn't ring too much with Jackman and he turned down the offer. "I feel like I've done it now". "So there's some sense of missed opportunity, but when I saw Logan, I sat there and I did have tears in my eyes".

Neville Rodie & Shaw Inc increased Oracle Corp (NYSE:ORCL) stake by 142,089 shares to 210,820 valued at $10.57 million in 2017Q2. Conduent Incorporated (NYSE:CNDT) shares were trading higher by 0.27 percent ($0.04) at $15.09 a piece in Tuesday's session.
So it's understandable that Jackman might not have wanted to be involved - even though he continued to star in the even-less plausible X-Men franchise, which is literally about superheroes. As Pierce Brosnan was preparing to depart the role, executives approached Jackman as a potential replacement. "But I'm in the surgeon's office, and he's not letting me leave until I call you and say there's no way I can sing tomorrow'".
He said he was "worried that between Bond and X-Men, (he'd) never have time to do different things".
Directed by James Mangold, Logan stars Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Eriq LaSalle, Elizabeth Rodriguez, and Boyd Holbrook.
