Taron Egerton Says He’s ‘Baffled’ By The Wolverine MCU Rumors

Taron Egerton admitted that he’s been baffled by rumors claiming he’s being considered for the role of Wolverine in the MCU.

Since Hugh Jackman officially retired from the role and Disney subsequently acquired 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets, fans have been eager to learn what Marvel Studios has planned for Wolverine and X-Men in the MCU. While nothing has been officially announced, rumors regarding Wolverine frequently mention Kingsman star Taron Egerton as a potential candidate for the role.

During an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, Taron Egerton was asked if there was any truth to the rumors of him being the MCU’s Wolverine. In response, Taron Egerton stated that rumors are unfounded and that he is simply a fan of the MCU films:

“It’s unfounded. The only morsel of truth to it is that I’m a huge fan of the films, like 99.9 percent of the rest of the world. That’s kind of it, really.”

Taron Egerton added that he’s not sure why the rumors started to begin with before noting that he may be better suited to play a different MCU character. However, Taron Egerton admitted that Wolverine is probably the one character someone would want to play:

“I don’t quite know where it comes from. I’m flattered but baffled by it. There’s other characters that I think I’d be more suited to. But, if there’s one you want to play, it’s probably that one. I just love the wildness of Logan but I don’t know.”

Taron Egerton concluded by saying he would be open to playing the MCU’s Wolverine if “the phone rang.”

Do you think Taron Egerton would be a good choice to play Wolverine in the MCU? Do you agree with Taron Egerton’s own belief that he might be better suited for a different MCU role? Let us know what you think below!

Marvel Studios confirmed plans to include mutants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe during its 2019 San Diego Comic-Con panel. 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.
