So I wanted to give you all a render of what could be. #yayornay?? #wolverine #marvelstudios #MCU #dacremontgomery #fancast #rumormill #alwaysapex ____ Let me start by saying Hugh Jackman is irreplaceable. But its inevitable that we are getting a new wolverine and I think Dacre would be a nice choice. He has the correct build, short and stocky, which differs from Hugh's portrayal.
