Henry Cavill imagines Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in a new concept design that imagines the Superman actor as the X-Men hero.
With the X-Men set to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point in the future, Superman actor Henry Cavill straps on the Adamantium claws to bring a new incarnation of Wolverine to life. Fans have constantly debated who should pick up the role in the MCU following Hugh Jackman, and most recently The Boys actor Antony Starr said that he’d love to play the mutant. Interestingly, Keanu Reeves recently revealed that he has always wanted to play Wolverine, but he’s made peace with the fact he won’t get the chance to portray the X-Men character.
The fan edit comes from a digital artist known as “savagecomics” and imagines Henry Cavill in full costume as Wolverine. Although fans are typically used to seeing Wolverine in a yellow and blue outfit, this tactical look leans into the brown costume the mutant has worn in the past. The artist pointed out in the caption that although many comic readers want to see a short Wolverine after the Hugh Jackman version, they think Henry Cavill could “kill it” in the role. Take a look at the artwork of the Superman actor as the MCU’s Wolverine below.

Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige confirmed plans to include mutants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe during last year’s San Diego Comic-Con. However, the studio is reportedly in no rush to introduce the X-Men to the MCU, meaning it will likely be some time before we learn who will replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
