Wolverine becomes 'Apostle Paul'
Deadline magazine says the actor will star in Apostle Paul, a film being developed by Warner Bros.
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon's company Pearl Street Films will produce it.
Apostle Paul, also known as St Paul, was a Jewish man who was a persecutor of Jesus' followers before becoming a teacher of Christianity.
Rather different from the role Hugh Jackman's arguably known best for Wolverine.
Hugh Jackman's played the role in seven X-Men and Wolverine films since 2000, but four days ago he posted a picture on Instagram of a hand with Wolverine claws along with the words: "WOLVERINE ...ONE LAST TIME. HJ".
It's thought that this refers to the filming of a third solo Wolverine film, expected to be in cinemas in 2017.
It caused plenty of upset from fans with one commenting: "This is worse than Zayn leaving 1D!!"
Wolverine was born in Canada and trained as a soldier, a C.I.A. operative, a samurai, and a spy.
Paul on the other hand was a Greek-speaking Jew thought to have been born about 5 AD at Tarsus in Cilicia (now southern Turkey).
The Bible says he had been a persecutor of Jesus' followers in Jerusalem but then the resurrected Jesus appeared to him in a bright light from heaven, on the road to Damascus.
He changed his name from Saul to Paul and began to preach Christianity.
