New artwork imagines Kingsman star Taron Egerton as Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine successor for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
While fans eagerly await news about how the X-Men and the Fantastic Four will make their debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe following Disney’s acquisition of Fox, this cool piece of fan art pictures Kingsman star Taron Egerton replacing Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. The artwork gives Egerton the iconic cowl that fans only got a glimpse of during a deleted scene from James Mangold’s X-Men spin-off The Wolverine. Mangold confirmed that Hugh Jackman didn’t even get to wear the costume, which obviously disappointed most X-Men fans.
The concept design comes from a digital artist known as ‘bobby_art’ on Instagram, and gives Kingsman star Taron Egerton a tactical, comic-accurate Wolverine suit to replace Hugh Jackman as the X-Men hero. The cowl features the classic pointed ears, which will no doubt instantly remind fans of both the comics and the legendary X-Men animated series. The artist explained that he chose Egerton for his design since he’s “a good height and he has the acting range.” Take a look at the impressive design of the Kingsman star as Wolverine below.

Here’s an edit I made of what a comic accurate blue-yellow suited Wolverine played by @taron.egerton might look like in the MCU. I chose him since he is the person who’s most rumored for the role, and I’d think he’d be a good fit since has a good height and he has the acting range. If you guys would like, I might post a black-yellow or brown-yellow variant of the suit. Anyways, sound off in the comments below what you think. If you guys would like, I could make edits for the other MCU X-Men members, just tell me which ones. Also, feel free to repost but give me credit! – – – – – – – #wolverine #taronegerton #taronegertonedit #taronegertonedits #xmen #hughjackman #bub #marvel #marvelcomics #mcu #marvelcinematicuniverse #deadpool #spiderman #spiderverse #professorx #mutants #phase4 #phase5 #marvelcinematic #comics #comicbookart #comicbook #marvelcomicbooks #comicbooks #avengers #magneto #doctorstrange #photoshop #multiverse #spidermanfarfromhome

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed plans to include mutants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe during last year’s San Diego Comic-Con. However, the studio is reportedly in no rush to introduce the X-Men to the MCU, meaning it will likely be some time before we learn who will replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
