Tom Hardy is among several fan favorites to replace Hugh Jackman in the role. Dark Phoenix director and longtime X-Men film writer Simon Kinberg said both Tom Hardy and Richard Madden are his favorites to play the iconic X-Men character.
Hugh Jackman played Wolverine from 2000 to 2017 and holds the Guinness World Record for longest career as a live-action Marvel superhero. With Logan being Hugh Jackman’s final stint as the Wolverine, it’s time for someone new. Tom Hardy is no stranger to superhero movies, having played Bane in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises and Eddie Brock in Venom. He also portrayed Max Rockatansky in Mad Max: Fury Road, giving him a large advantage in the action genre.

Here is the synopsis for 20th Century Fox’s next X-Men movie Dark Phoenix:
This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.
Written and directed by Simon Kinberg, Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.
Dark Phoenix will be released in theaters on June 7, 2019.
