In the realm of Hollywood, it’s quite common to don a different persona to play a particular character. While many such characters have come and gone but only a few have managed to etch their names into the hearts of the viewers, the most prominent being Hugh Jackman in Wolverine. While the public is highly ecstatic about viewing Logan’s iconic beard chop in the upcoming Deadpool 3, the most recent update from the actor has offered viewers a new avatar of Jackman.

Much like how he got fans excited as he commemorated the shooting of the movie with the ‘chops’, as he endearingly called them, the actor has ushered them into another meltdown with a new post.

The superhero comedy genre has a devoted fan base that even Hollywood’s most historic strike cannot break. So, when the strikes ended, Hugh Jackman was among the first one to visit the movie sets after a four-month wait. To commemorate the occasion, he posted a selfie on social media with his iconic beard. To add to this, the actor has posted an Instagram story in which he appears to be clean-shaven. This has piqued the interest of his admirers, who are wondering whether or not the production of the movie has concluded.

The beard plays an important role in Jackman’s portrayal of Logan, thus there could be two reasons why the actor opted to shave his beard. The first being that the filming of the movie has been completed, as Shawn Levy previously stated over half of the film had been shot prior to the strikes. The second reason could be that the actor would now use a false beard to complete the rest of his scenes. For now, however, fans will have to wait for more updates from the actor.
