Los Angeles: Actor Hugh Jackman, who is will be dropping his claws following "Wolverine 3", feels "Mad Max: Fury Road" actor Tom Hardy will make a good Wolverine.

Jackman, 46, has been frequently asked about his successor as the clawed superhero, but the Australian star says he has not given a serious thought about it, reported The Wrap.

"I think Tom Hardy would be a great Wolverine. He is younger than me for sure... However, I haven't really given it a lot of thought I'm always like, 'I don't wanna make it too easy on the studio to replace me,' you know?

I've still got one more (film) to do. I'm sure they're already talking about it, and there's some actor (they've told) 'shh, keep it quiet but we want you next.'" he said. Jackman, who first played Logan/Wolverine in 2000 film "X-Men," went on to play the role five consecutive times since then.

He is set to appear in "X-Men: Apocalypse" followed by "Wolverine 3" which will mark his final outing with the franchise. The films are slated for May, 2016 and March, 2017 release respectively.
