A new concept design imagines The Boys star Antony Starr as Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine replacement for the Marvel Studios movies.
Although fans were disappointed that Marvel’s Kevin Feige didn’t tease the future of the X-Men in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the recent Disney Investor presentation, there’s a number of candidates who could make a good replacement for Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. The Boys star Antony Starr is often suggested for the role by fans after seeing the intensity he brings to the role of the villainous Homelander in the Amazon series.
Antony Starr even revealed that he’d love to play Wolverine while talking about other roles he’d like to play. However, the Boys actor pointed out that it would be difficult to fill the shoes left by Hugh Jackman. A concept from ApexForm on Instagram pictures Starr in Jackman’s typical dressed down costume as Wolverine, with his white vest and a lit cigar. When given the chance, Starr can give an incredibly vicious performance – his role in the Banshee series is the perfect example of that. You can see Antony Starr as Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine successor below.

Here is the official synopsis for the second season of The Boys:
The even more intense, more insane season two finds The Boys on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia.
The Boys stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, Aya Cash, and Colby Minifie.
