Hugh Jackman is saying a final goodbye to his Wolverine mutton chops.

The longtime X-Men actor is wrapping the untitled third Wolverine movie, his final film as the mutant with claws. To celebrate, Jackman took to Instagram to share a video of himself shaving off that iconic beard.

“My wife is going to be very happy,” Jackman wrote, adding the hashtag #GoodbyeChops.

The upcoming Wolverine movie doesn’t have a confirmed plot yet (or even a name), but James Mangold is returning as the director, and producer Simon Kinberg has confirmed that Wolverine 3 will be R-rated, violent, and “kind of like a Western in its tone.” Patrick Stewart is also set to make his return as Professor X, with Boyd Holbrook and Stephen Merchant also on board. Wolverine 3 is set for release on March 3, 2017.
