Hugh Jackman has admitted some of the 'X-Men' and 'Wolverine' movies have failed to match expectations.

The 47-year-old actor has starred as the fictional superhero in various Marvel movies and as he prepares to reprise the part for the final time, Hugh has also offered an honest assessment of the films.

Asked if he hesitates before returning to the part, the award-winning actor said: ''If I was hesitating I wouldn't do it.

''I ... I don't think all the 'X-Men' and 'Wolverines' have been great, and I'm not going to pretend ... the intention was always there and everyone worked super-hard and all of that.''

Despite this, Hugh is looking forward to his final appearance as Wolverine, promising fans that the new movie will be ''fantastic''.

He told the Guardian newspaper: ''I do think we're in a really great place with the character. This next one, from what I'm hearing, is going to be fantastic.

''I would love to go out where I felt we were really doing something new and interesting and valid, and I don't know how much longer I can contribute to that. I'm sure there are other people who can.''
