Tom Hardy becomes Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine successor in a concept design that sees the Venom star suited up as the X-Men hero for the next wave of MCU movies.
Although it hasn’t been too long since the last cinematic outing of the X-Men, it’s inevitable that they’ll soon join the Marvel Cinematic Universe following Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox. Marvel’s Kevin Feige previously addressed the issue, explaining that the studio is still debating how to reboot the mutants in a way that fits in with the rest of the established continuity. But since we didn’t get to see Hugh Jackman suit up in Wolverine’s classic yellow costume from the comics, many fans want to see Tom Hardy rock the outfit and Adamantium claws in the MCU.
An awesome new piece of fan art from Instagram user ‘jph_photoshop’ gives Tom Hardy the cowl we briefly glimpsed in Hugh Jackman’s The Wolverine. It also imagines what the rest of his suit could look like in the MCU. The ears might be a little over-the-top for the big screen, but Kevin Feige would likely figure out a way of making them work somehow. If Feige can bring a walking, talking raccoon into the MCU, then he can give Tom Hardy a Wolverine costume. Check out the artwork below.
What do you make of the Tom Hardy concept? Would you like to see the star as Wolverine in the MCU? Or should Marvel Studios leave Logan alone for a while? Let us know in the comments section!
Here is the official synopsis for Hugh Jackman’s last Wolverine film Logan:
