It was when the iconic mutant character had featured in the comics in 1974; Wolverine had become a household name. And ever since Hugh Jackman has played the character, he has become the emblematic face of Wolverine. The Australian actor has owned the character like it was written just for him. The character, unlike other superheroes, doesn’t confine itself to specific signature style ‘costume’, demeanour, and almost everything that we relate with a fictional superhero. This is how the indelible character has evolved over the years –
The rise of this Canadian superhero began with the 2000 film X-Men. Hugh Jackman had deftly portrayed the role of a rather alone and baby-faced Wolverine. He was not only about the black jump-suit in the film, but he gained a family.
X2 : X-Men United 
It marked the emergence of Col. William Stryker, the one responsible for Logan’s adamantium skeleton and claws. Wolverine became a father-figure to Rogue and feels love towards Jean. But in the end, the Cyclops, Jean and Wolverine love triangle ends tragically.
X-Men : Last Stand 
With all his fiery Logan’s flame, he fights his heart out to free Jean from the Dark Phoenix’s talons with one stroke of his powerful claws.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine 
Intertwined with mid-credit scenes of the Civil War, World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War, and the cameos by Deadpool and Gambit, it depicts the origin story of James Howlett, the man who later becomes Wolverine.
The Wolverine 
This was the first instalment that was directed by James Mangold. It is a complete adaptation of 1982 Comic-book miniseries by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller. It had set the stage for Logan.
X-Men : Days of Future Past 
Just before the apocalypse instalment, Wolverine’s time with the X-Men comes back to the original situation.
This is arguably the best instalment of the series and it happens to be the concluding one. Hugh Jackman played a drunk and swarthy protagonist with conspicuously deteriorated mutant prowess. The character portrayed palpable emotions. It is the most realistic version of Wolverine.
