Washington D.C. [USA], Oct. 5 (ANI): 'Wolverine' Hugh Jackman stepped out of his way to give director Bryan Singer a commissioned print from X-Men comic book artist Joe Quesada as a parting gift.

The 47-year-old actor is now preparing to retire as Wolverine after more than eight years of owning the mutant character in the X-Men franchise, reports Entertainment Weekly.

The 53-year-old director envisioned the 'Wolverine' star as the adamantium-clawed mutant standing behind Singer as Professor Xavier, the telepathic leader of the X-Men.

Jackman reportedly signed one of the pieces with a message that read, "Dear Bryan, It all started with you, Bub! 1999-2016! From the bottom of my heart, thank you."

The filmmaker instagrammed an image of the artwork writing, "Thank you so much [Hugh Jackman] for commissioning the brilliant comic artist [Joe Quesada] to make these fantastic and very personal covers for me. I will cherish them and our long friendship and collaboration always!"

Jackman will be seen for the final time as Logan in 'Wolverine 3' scheduled to release on March 3 next year. (ANI)
