Actor Hugh Jackman believes that Channing Tatum can replace him in 'X-Men' movie series where he plays the role of 'Wolverine'.

The 45-year-old 'Les Miserables' actor said that Tatum would be able to play the role if he himself decides to retire from the action series, reported Digital Spy.

"I don't know who could play Wolverine but Channing Tatum could probably play him," he said.

"I've got to admit, when I took on the role, I was 30. But I think I needed to be 40 before I really got it."

Although his co-star James McAvoy who plays Professor Charles Xavier in the upcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' believes no one can replace Jackman.

"Nobody could step into his shoes. They've got to retire the character when he finishes. When he is done with it, they will retire the character," McAvoy said.
