According to the sources, Kingsman and Rocketman Star Taron Egerton is high on Marvel’s wishlist to take over the role of Wolverine and now the star himself has weighed in on the rumor. Also now fans are putting their vote for Taron Egerton to be Wolverine. It is not unfair to say that Egerton who has proven his capability as an action star in the Kingsman series would be an excellent choice for the part.
In 2016, Hugh Jackman who famously played Wolverine for a staggering 17 years was asked whether he’d be game to appear in a Deadpool film while doing the press rounds for Eddie the Eagle with Taron Egerton, who also starred in that movie. Jackman explained: “I’ve never thought about it till now, but doing something with Ryan – he’s awesome – that’s always attractive to me.” Gesturing to Egerton, Jackman then said: “But I think you’ve probably got several other people lined up to play [Wolverine].” It’s almost as if Jackman knows something everyone else didn’t and there is a good chance that his comment is what set the fan’s attentions mill spinning in the first place.
At the time of course Disney’s acquisition of the film and positive assets of Fox studios hadn’t begun to take shake but one’s it became clear that the X-Men franchise was destined to be rebooted into the MCU, Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige swiftly expressed his intention to recast the merry band of mutants with much younger actors, including Wolverine and while it goes without saying that if the X-Men fans would love to see Jackman reprise his role in the MCU, it’s safe to say that the 52 years old Jackman probably has no desire to go on playing Wolverine and many of the fan-favorite choices for the role such as Keanu Reeves and old ton Hady would also face the same problem. At 31, however, Egerton could hold down the role for the same length of time that Jackman did. At any rate, you have got to hope that Egerton is just being coy about his chance of taking the role. After all Marvel studios are practically pearless when it comes to casting their heroes and being their masterstroke.
Recently Kelvin Feige has mentioned he’d like all characters like Wolverine and Professor X to return in the Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Also, Hugh Jackman has dropped a major Wolverine teaser on his Instagram that leads us to believe that he could be returning as Wolverine in the MCU! But now the same question arises who is going to take the role of Wolverine? But still, the same answer that there are many of statements but Taron Egerton might going to be one whose the best choice possible for the same reason discussed above that Taron is younger than Jackman and could be a clawed hero for a long time if he is agreeable enough for right now. We can just hope for great and not much more.
