LOS ANGELES: Actor Hugh Jackman gave a special parting gift to his "X-Men" director Bryan Singer. 

The actor-director duo have been working together since filmmaker's first "X-Men" film in 2000 and up to this year's "X-Men: Apocalypse".

The 47-year-old star gifted commissioned prints from X-Men comic book artist Joe Quesada to the filmmaker. 

"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!," Singer posted on Instagram along with the picture of the artwork. 

Quesada envisioned Jackman as the adamantium-clawed mutant standing behind Singer as Professor Xavier. 

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

The actor announced his final appearance as Wolverine will be in James Mangold's sequel to "The Wolverine". 

"Wolverine 3" is scheduled for release on March 3, 2017.
