Venom star Tom Hardy transforms into Wolverine to replace Hugh Jackman in a stunning new concept for the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
Although Tom Hardy will be seen next in Venom: Let There Be Carnage alongside Woody Harrelson’s Cletus Kasady, the British actor is also often fancast as Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine successor for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hardy is pretty set on continuing playing Eddie Brock and Venom for the foreseeable future, but it’s not too hard to picture the actor picking up a set of Adamantium claws for the MCU.
The concept of Venom star Tom Hardy surfaced online, showing off a stylish version of Wolverine in present day. The fan art uses a shot of Hardy from GQ to picture what Marvel’s next version of Logan Howlett could look like alongside the other heroes in the MCU like Falcon, Winter Soldier and Doctor Strange. Instagram artist “Houseofmat” redesigned the image to give the actor Logan’s classic wild hairstyle as well as a subtle use of an ‘X’ pin, just to let it be know that he’s with the X-Men. Check out the artwork of Tom Hardy as Wolverine!
