Tom Hardy becomes Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine successor in a new concept design that imagines the X-Men hero’s Marvel Cinematic Universe look.
Now that discussions are ongoing at Marvel Studios on how to introduce the X-Men into the MCU, the excitement to see mutants next to the Avengers is at an all-time high. Wolverine is obviously one of the most famous X-Men heroes, partially thanks to Hugh Jackman’s performance during the Fox-era of Marvel movies. So the big question most fans have is who will Marvel’s Kevin Feige pick to play the Adamantium-clawed hero on the silver screen? One of the most common suggestions is Venom star Tom Hardy.
A new piece of fan art from Instagram user ‘Mizuriau’ shows off what Tom Hardy could look like in the classic Wolverine suit if he was to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Obviously, replacing Hugh Jackman is no easy feat, but the armored costume imagined in the artistic design below would be great to see in live-action. Unfortunately, Kevin Feige did confirm that the studio hasn’t started casting for Wolverine just yet, so it’ll be a while before anyone steps into Hugh Jackman’s shoes.
What do you make of the Wolverine concept? Would you like to see Tom Hardy replace Hugh Jackman in the role for the MCU? Sound-off in the comments!
Here is the official synopsis for Hugh Jackman’s Logan:
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
Directed by James Mangold, Logan stars Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Eriq LaSalle, Elizabeth Rodriguez, and Boyd Holbrook. The film is available on Digital HD, Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
