Could Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine actually beat Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk in a fight?
Hugh Jackman boldly claims his Wolverine could defeat Mark Ruffalo‘s Hulk in a battle. Jackman first played the role of Wolverine in the 2000 movie X-Men, kicking off a truly remarkable streak that lasted until 2017.
As a matter of fact, Jackman owns the record for the longest portrayal of one of the Marvel superheroes. Jackman last portrayed Wolverine in Logan, a sentimental and poignant film that many viewed as a fitting send-off for the superhero.
Many fans, however, would like to see him come back, but despite Ryan Reynolds‘ best attempts, Jackman stands adamant in his commitment to leave Wolverine behind.
‘Wolverine would beat’ The Hulk in a fight — 'Let’s just be very clear' says Hugh Jackman.

Ruffalo joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Bruce Banner, aka The Hulk, in The Avengers back in 2012. Edward Norton initially portrayed the character, but the actor moved away from the project following conflicts with Marvel.
In six MCU movies (including post-credit scenes), Ruffalo played Bruce, and he is likely to reprise the role in the Disney+ show She-Hulk. Although it was reported Ruffalo formally signed onto the series, he confirmed in April talks were merely underway. There are yet to be further updates on this.
Jackman recently spoke with Sirius XM to address a wide variety of subjects, from his professional rivalry with Reynolds to his Emmy-nominated performance in Bad Education.

Jackman is up for Best Actor in a Limited Series or Movie, and Ruffalo is one of his adversaries, after getting nominated for HBO’s I Know So Much Is True.
Inevitably, the topic shifted to how the two Marvel stars are competing against each other for the honor, and Jackman insisted Wolverine would defeat the Hulk.
But Wolverine would beat him for sure let’s just be very clear…. I don’t know if you know this but The Wolverine actually appeared first in a Hulk comic. He was like a last page, some guy coming so it was The Hulk series he appeared so that’s sort of where that feud came from and then Wolverine sort of took on this whole life so I’m sure The Hulk is very jealous.
Back in April, Ruffalo stated he would be pretty eager to see Hulk and Wolverine pair up sometime. Who wouldn’t, really? Both of them are extremely strong, but their opposing personas are likely to create some conflict.
As for who will ultimately win the battle between the two, it’s hard to argue Hulk’s got a little upper hand here because of his stature and strength.
In contrast, Wolverine possesses healing abilities, which suggests he might refuse to back down and bring a decent fight. It would be tough to name a real winner here.

Unfortunately, though, it seems unlikely the two of them would cross paths on the silver screen. While the MCU is planning to resurrect the X-Men franchise along with the recasting of Wolverine, Ruffalo’s Hulk is undoubtedly on his way out.
Instead, She-Hulk might cross paths with the new X-Men until the mutants make their entry into the MCU. It’s not what Jackman and Ruffalo were actually imagining, but it might still be a lot of fun.
