Australian actor Hugh Jackman has reportedly been offered massive USD 100 million deal to reprise his role as Wolverine in four future movies.

The 44-year-old,who is set to reprise his iconic role in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past,previously hinted at a potential retirement from the clawed-hero,reported Aceshowbiz.

“Hugh has a big decision to make. It’s not every day an actor gets offered this kind of paycheck,but Hugh vowed never to lock himself into any multipicture deals after X-Men. He hasn’t given any kind of answer yet,so at least he’s considering it,” a source said.

Hugh Jackman,the third highest paid actor on this year’s Forbes list,had previously said,”I wasn’t even sure after the first stand-alone film if I would do another. I had something to prove,and we could have done better.

“Somehow the first Wolverine movie ended up looking like the fourth X-Men – just with different characters. I left unsure if we’d achieved our goal,which was to make sure people understood my character.”
