Hugh Jackman has been spending a lot of time with the powerful Batman cabal of Christopher Nolan, Christian Bale, and Michael Caine. No doubt largely because of this coupled with Jackman's incredible status in the comic book film community these days, rumors have arisen regarding Jackman's appearance in the coming sequel to Batman Begins. Come to think of it, it probably doesn't help that the man is making a cameo in Superman Returns either. People just presume he's omnipresent these days. Jackman recently addressed the Harvey Dent rumors and quashed fans hopes of seeing him in yet another major comic film franchise.

Jackman called the rumor "More fanboy stuff, probably joking around on-set .... I'll be honest with you. If Chris [Nolan] rang me, I think of him that highly, I'd do it but I'm not laying down a sort of, 'I wanna be in this movie.' He's an amazing director." So technically I suppose Jackman didn't close the door on the rumors per se, he just said it hasn't been discussed thus far. And while he was at it, he also knocked the rumors of further X-Men films. Unlike many of his fellow actors, Jackman flatly declared "No, I don't think there will be an X-Men 4."
