The world has also just witnessed the 22 James Bond film, Die Another Day, which some people reckon tested the boundaries of the classic MI6 spy franchise - as well as the audience's patience.

Fans can see Hugh Jackman on screen again when The Greatest Showman arrives in theaters on December 20, 2017.

He has been immortalised onscreen as Wolverine, but there was a time Hugh Jackman was approached to play the iconic role of James Bond, which he turned down as he found the script of a potential film to be quite straitjacket.

Hugh Jackman is one of Australia's most loved actors, but he's revealed that he's turned down an iconic role that could have been a game changer for him.

Hugh Jackman's daughter proves that your kids really are your toughest critics! "You just have to sign on.' I was also anxious that between Bond and X-Men, I'd never have time to do different things".

Trump ended safeguards against deportation three months ago but has expressed an openness to restoring them. They also have no interest in a shutdown that would raise questions about their ability to govern.

As it turns out, there could have been a very different face in the role of Bond, James Bond.

Jackman went on to say that his agent confirmed he would have to just jump into the role, and wouldn't have any input on the script. So there's some sense of missed opportunity, but when I saw 'Logan, ' I sat there and I did have tears in my eyes. The main feeling I had was: "There, that's the character. I just felt at the time that the scripts had become so unbelievable and insane, and I felt like they needed to become grittier and real", says Jackman. "I feel like I've done it now". "You just have to sign on.' I was also anxious that between Bond and X-Men, I'd never have time to do different things".

Daniel Craig was ultimately offered the role and, well, it seems like they decided to make him gritty after all.

He further added how he did not get any choice at that time as he said, "And the response was: 'Oh, you don't get a say".
