So far, one Irishman, a Welshman, two Englishmen, A Scotsman, and the Australian George Lazenby have all played the role of James Bond.
Could you imagine Hugh Jackman as Bond though? However, the actor felt the franchise wasn't gritty enough at the time and made a decision to opt out of portraying James Bond. He would have been balancing the X-Men franchise and the James Bond franchise at the same time, which would be incredibly hard for any actor, which is part of the reason he turned down the role.
Daniel Craig ended up taking on the role as Bond for three films. At times, it seemed like Jackman would be playing the character (and working out relentlessly to do so) until he collapsed, but one of the longest-serving superhero actors of all time finally retracted his claws with Logan. 20 Century Fox's upcoming X-Men movies are The New Mutants which premieres April 13, 2018, Deadpool 2 which releases June 1, 2018, X-Men: Dark Phoenix on November 2, 2018, and Gambit which hits cinemas on February 14, 2019.
"But there was a time between "X-Men 3" and the first Wolverine movie when I could see the roles getting smaller", he told Variety. The main feeling I had was: "There, that's the character".
Jackman recalled his agent telling him he doesn't "get a say" in the scripts and "just have to sign on". So there's some sense of missed opportunity, but when I saw 'Logan, ' I sat there and I did have tears in my eyes. "I feel like I've done it now".
"'X-Men, ' I'd never have time to do different things", Jackman told Variety.
Ultimately the role went to British actor Daniel Craig, who starred as James Bond in the 2006 flick Casino Royale before continuing the role for three more movies including 2012's Skyfall andSpectre in 2015.
