Description

The superhero genre has seen its fair share of Tinseltown A-listers come and go. Here's why some of the biggest names abandoned their most super-heroic roles. Heads up, some spoilers ahead.

Over the years, Hugh Jackman has appeared as the internally conflicted Wolverine a whopping nine times, but his ownership of the role was clear the first time he donned the claws for X-Men. At this point, it's almost impossible to imagine another actor in the role.
But unless there's a dramatic turn of events, it seems that's just what we'll have to do. Prior to suiting up for Logan, Jackman announced that his ninth appearance as Wolverine would ultimately be his last, according to People magazine.

Believe it or not, a chat with Jerry Seinfeld about his decision finally leave Seinfeld had a hand in Jackman's decision to walk away from the character.

Jackman says he decided that same day to make Logan his final film as Wolverine. Luckily, he left with a bang, the film was a massive critical and box office success and serves as a fitting final chapter.

Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight made Christian Bale the definitive Batman for many fans of the character. After Nolan walked away, Warner Brothers was desperate to keep Bale on board, according to Business Insider. Prior to announcing Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Brothers reportedly offered Bale as much as $50 million to don the cape for director Zack Snyder. Keep watching the video so to find out why these actors abandoned their superhero roles!
