Is Hugh Jackman in Phoenix? Facebook photo suggests possibility

The film and Broadway star posted a photo on his Facebook page that featured a certain iconic Valley mountain.

PHOENIX — Stay calm, people. Stay. Calm.

During my morning Facebook scroll, I came across a very exciting photo. And it features everyone's favorite Adamantium-clawed mutant.

Hugh Jackman took to Facebook Sunday to share some beautiful photos of his surroundings. But one photo immediately caught my eye. Along with a selfie, one of the photos features what looks like Camelback Mountain in the background.

And that can only mean one thing. 


So many questions are running through my mind:

  • What is he doing here?
  • Is he shooting a movie?
  • Could he be going to the Super Bowl?
  • Does he have his Wolverine costume?
  • Does he want to hang out?

Took a breather.
