Hugh Jackman says "Wolverine 3" may be his last film as the clawed mutant.

In an interview with sci-fi fantasy magazine SFX, the Australian actor, who has played the character for more than a decade, hinted this could be his last role as Wolverine.

"I don't know yet," Jackman, 45, said. We're talking it through. I still am very ambitious for the character. And tonally I feel like we corrected the ship with the last one. But I feel we can still go further, in a way. If I did another one I'm 99.9 percent sure it would be the last, so that will inform what it is for me.

"I'm excited to see what we can come up with, but I haven't signed on signed on," he added. "I'm genuinely at that point where unless it's better than the last one I'm not going to do it."

Jackman also said he feels that there's room for improvement in the storyline. For instance, there were “certain parts of that story where I felt we were predictable,” he said, adding that he doesn't feel “you need to do that with Wolverine.”

The actor said during an appearance on “The Graham Norton Show” that while filming a scene for "X-Men: Days of Future Past," he almost sliced off his private parts but cut his inner thigh instead.

During a "very intense first scene," Jackman insisted on a closed set. But while shooting the nude scene, he spotted all the female members of the crew gathered, and in an attempt to cover himself, he accidentally cut his inner thigh.

"It was just the inner thigh thankfully!" Jackman said. "The metal claws had to go -- you can't have bits and pieces flying off."

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" is slated for a May 23 release. Meanwhile, the third installment of "Wolverine" in “X-Men: Apocalypse” isn't expected to debut until 2016 in the United States.
