Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman have even shared the screen as the two starred in the 2016 sports biopic Eddie the Eagle.
Rumors that Taron Egerton is being eyed to play Wolverine have been making the rounds online for quite some time. During a recent interview, Egerton said that he thinks there are better options to play Wolverine but would happily take on the role if Marvel Studios thought he was a good fit for the X-Men icon.

Thanks to Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets, Marvel Studios now holds the rights to Wolverine and the rest of the X-Men. The studio is expected to reboot the X-Men franchise. However, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is reportedly not in a hurry to introduce the mutant heroes to the MCU, which could mean it will be some time before we see who will replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
