Taron Egerton gets the iconic Wolverine look to replace Hugh Jackman as the X-Men hero in a new concept design for the MCU movies.
With WandaVision making fans question whether mutants will arrive in the Marvel Cinematic Universe sooner rather than later, it seems only a matter of time before characters like Wolverine and the X-Men make an appearance alongside the Avengers. Most recently, Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo compared casting Wolverine to Batman, saying that he’d love a shot at bringing Logan into the MCU.
This concept from Instagram artist ‘parker_luck394’ imagines Taron Egerton replacing Hugh Jackman as Wolverine for the MCU, giving the Kingsman star Logan’s classic wild hairstyle and a cigar alongside his signature claws. Egerton has previously dismissed the rumors about his involvement with Wolverine in the MCU, saying he was “baffled.” Take a look at what Egerton could look like as the MCU’s Wolverine below.

Here is the official synopsis for Hugh Jackman’s last Wolverine film, Logan:
