A new concept design imagines former Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman replacing Josh Brolin as the Ultimate version of Cable.
As we all know by now, Disney’s Fox acquisition means that a lot of exciting doors are now open for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to keep on expanding. Aside from the Fantastic Four, one of the properties most fans are excited to see from Marvel Studios is the X-Men. And of course, many would like to see Hugh Jackman return to play Wolverine, but he was very clear that 2017’s Logan was the last time he’d strap on the Adamantium claws. However, this awesome fan-made image sees him replace Josh Brolin as Cable.
The artwork from digital artist “spdrmnkyxxiii” on Instagram gives fans a silver haired Hugh Jackman in the role of Cable to replace Josh Brolin in the MCU, albeit with the star still wielding those iconic claws. It’s a look taken from the alternate reality of Earth-2107, the home of Ultimate Cable. In that timeline, Apocalypse took over the world and also ripped off Wolverine’s arm, with the mutant taking on the name Cable after he’d recovered. It’ll be interesting to see how Avengers producer Kevin Feige introduces the X-Men and the rest of the mutants when they’re eventually brought into the MCU. Actors like Antony Starr and Keanu Reeves have previously expressed an interest in playing Wolverine, so who knows which direction Feige will go in. You can see Hugh Jackman replacing Josh Brolin as Cable below.
