Venom star Tom Hardy suits up to replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine for the MCU in new fan art.
It’s still up in the air on how mutants will appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but fans have been casting their ideal choices for the X-Men characters. A new fan edit shows what Venom star Tom Hardy gearing up in a comic-accurate suit to play Wolverine in the MCU would look like. Hardy is usual the number one choice alongside other actors like Keanu Reeves and Taron Edgerton to follow up Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine on the silver screen.
The edit was created by Instagram artist ‘saarukan.psd’ on Instagram. It reveals a blue and yellow suit for Wolverine in the MCU, putting Tom Hardy in the hero’s costume also donning the iconic cowl. Hugh Jackman never put on the classic suit, although it being teased at the end of The Wolverine. The artist explained how excited they are for Wolverine and the X-Men to make their MCU debut, picking Hardy as their personal choice to play the next Logan. Drop down below to check out the concept.

WOLVERINE (MCU). This is the first in a new series I’m doing for the X-Men in the MCU. I love Wolverine and I can’t wait for him to join the MCU. And I know Tom Hardy is already Venom but let’s be honest does anybody actually care about that series 😂. I would personally cast Tom Hardy as the MCU Wolverine and I would love for him to have his classic Yellow and Blue costume. I think that this end result came out how I want it to end up looking like. #MCUxmendesign – What do you think, how can I improve? – Please Credit if you want to repost – #wolverine #tomhardy #logan #xmen #xmentheanimatedseries #xmenedit #wolverinewednesday #marvel #marvelstudios #mcu #mcufanart #avengers #endgame #likeforlikes #spiderman #like4likes #followforfollowback #followme #costumedesign #characterconcept #characterdesign #claws #digitalart #fancast #deadpool #xforce #disneyplus #photoshop #fanart
