Australian actor Hugh Jackman wants to reprise his role as Wolverine in the X-Men films - although no plans have been made yet for a third installment.

The SWORDFISH star has just finished filming vampire movie Van Helsing, but looks forward to a day when he'll be able to play the hero mutant again.

Hugh says, "Presuming they do another one, I think I'd find it very hard to pass up. Wolverine's one of the greatest characters around."

But when it comes to who would win in a battle of the characters, Jackman is loyal to his new role of the vampire hunter.

He says, "In a best of three? Um...you see, I've signed up for two Van Helsings and my contract for X-Men is finished...

"So Van Helsing would win."
