Hugh Jackman's wife won't allow him to work with Angelina Jolie— but will she support him starring in the new X-Men movie?
Though the actor previously admitted he'd been "speaking with the guys" about reprising his role as Wolverine in the upcoming flick X-Men: Apocalypse, the 46-year-old hasn't been officially added to the film's casting roster.

The father-of-two has previously starred as superhero Wolverine in six X-Men films, including X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Stars including Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Rose Byrne and James McAvoy have already signed on to appear in the new movie, which reportedly began filming in Montreal, Canada this past April. It is due to premiere in theaters in May 2016.

Earlier this week, Hugh's wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, joked she's happy for her husband to star in any movie he likes — unless it stars Angelina, 40.
"I've told his agent he's not allowed to work with Angelina... I'm sure she's lovely... Just kidding," the 56-year-old actress said in a new interview with Australia's TODAY.
