What actually happened was that XMen producer Lauren Shuler Donner ( whose then assistant was Kevin Feige of Marvel Studios now) saw and met Hugh in Oklahoma! in London. He wasn't the studio and the director's first choice but when the original Wolverine leading man ( DScott) was injured filming Mission Impossible 2 and could not meet the filming deadline for XMen, LSDonner suggested that they bring in Hugh Jackman. At that time, filming was already taking place for the past few weeks.

Donner will produce all his XMen major movies, including the LOGAN valedictory.

Hugh trained in dramatic theatre, not musical theatre... so it is hard to tell if he would stay in the theatre as his longtime career...or pursue film as his first career priority. Of late, post-Wolverine, he has been pursuing drama and dark comedy and some film noir cum thriller, even if the first movie he did after his last XMen movie was The Greatest Showman. Ironically, he earned a Grammy for being the principal soloist in the cast recording ( at least 51% of the sung material).
