Farewell, Wolverine! Watch Hugh Jackman Shave His Iconic Chops

We knew Hugh Jackman would be reprising his role as Wolverine for the last time in Wolverine 3, but the actor made the moment all too real after he wrapped up filming the project. On Instagram, Jackman shaves off the chops that were just as memorable to the X-Men character as his retractable claws.

“My wife is going to be very happy,” Jackman caption the post, along with the hashtag #GoodbyeChops and #thedebs. His hair is speckled with grey, showing that Wolverine may look noticeably older in the upcoming film.

Wolverine 3 doesn't have a formal title yet and its plot hasn't been announced, but according to ScreenRant, the film will be based on the Old Man Logan comic book. James Mangold returns as the director, along with Patrick Stewart as Professor X. Producer Simon Kinberg revealed the R-rated film will be violent. "It’s kind of like a Western in its tone. It’s just a very cool, different film," he said.

Look out for the movie, which marks the ninth time Jackman has played Wolverine, when it hits theaters on March 3, 2017. Recall happier times with our lively chat with the stars of X-Men: Apocalypse below:
