A new piece of fan art sees Kingsman star Taron Egerton replacing Hugh Jackman as the clawed X-Men character Wolverine for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Hugh Jackman retired from the role of Wolverine with the James Mangold-directed Logan. The film was praised by critics as the best standalone Wolverine picture in the X-Men franchise and even one of the best comic book movies of all time. But with the X-Men series coming to an end at 20th Century Fox, and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige now overseeing the future of the mutants, fans are looking ahead and giving their thoughts as to who could play the X-Men in the next on-screen version of the franchise.
Kingsman actor Taron Egerton recently emerged as a contender in the eyes of fans to replace Hugh Jackman as the next live-action Wolverine. Taron Egerton even said that he’d love to be part of the MCU whether it’s in the role of Wolverine or not. Thanks to new artwork from digital artist Dalton Barrett, fans can get an idea for how Taron Egerton would look replacing Hugh Jackman as Wolverine for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here’s what Taron Egerton could look like as Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine successor.
What do you think? Would Taron Egerton be a good choice to replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine? Or would you rather see someone besides Taron Egerton replace Hugh Jackman as the iconic X-Men character? Sound-off your thoughts in the comments!
Marvel Studios now holds the rights to Wolverine and the rest of the X-Men thanks to Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets. The studio is expected to reboot the X-Men franchise. However, Marvel Studios is currently continuing ahead into Phase 4 without the mutants.
Veteran X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner thinks that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is searching for a new actor to take on the role of Wolverine with Hugh Jackman officially retired. No casting details have emerged yet though, as Feige is reportedly in no rush to introduce the X-Men in the MCU.
Next up for the MCU is Scarlett Johansson’s long-awaited standalone Black Widow movie, which hits theaters on May 1, 2020. Other known future film projects from Marvel Studios include a Shang-Chi standalone film, the Black Panther sequel that Ryan Coogler is returning to write and direct, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 from writer/director James Gunn, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, and The Eternals, which is being directed by Chloe Zhao from a script written by Matthew and Ryan Firpo. The film opens on November 6, 2020.
Stay tuned for the latest news on Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman and the future of Wolverine and the rest of the X-Men!
