The most famous X-Men character is Wolverine. And now that the Disney-Fox deal is done and an Avengers/X-Men crossover seems likely, fans are wondering who will take up the mantle of Wolverine that Hugh Jackman played for so many years?
With Jackman being the most iconic man in the comic book movie industry, whoever takes on Wolverine’s role will have huge shoes to fill.
Here is a list of 10 actors who should play Wolverine:
Hardy’s name has frequently been brought up by fans while talking about Wolverine. Jackman had also suggested Hardy as an excellent choice. He has played Bane in The Dark Knight Rises and is currently playing Eddie Brock (Venom) in Venom.
Eastwood has experience in the comic book movies. He has played Lieutenant GQ Edwards in Suicide Squad. He is the son of Clint Eastwood, and we can expect some good Wolverine from him.
Fimmel may be tall, but this star has the physique to play this famous role. He has played Anduin Lothar in Stormwind kingdom in Warcraft.
Kit Harington’s intensity as Jon Snow on Game of Thrones will surely translate pretty well as Wolverine.
Taron Egerton will surely be a solid choice. He has proven that he can pull off the anti-hero vibes Wolverine gives. He has worked with Jackman in Eddie the Eagle, and he may have an advantage there.
While he is a little too tall and older than a few potential Wolverine choices, but he is a solid option. Mount’s Black Bolt was sophisticated, and he has appeared on Hell on Wheels as a Confederate soldier who is bent on revenge for the death of his family.
Rheon seems to be best known as Game of Thrones’ Ramsay Bolton. Rheon can truly embrace the role of Wolverine. The clawed mutant might be the good guy, but he is also a very intense and fierce opponent. This is something Rheon can play well.
Isaac is a good choice because his character, Poe Dameron in Star Wars has the brash, disregard for authority like Wolverine and this is something that Isaac plays well.
Liam Hemsworth has the physical stature to play a good Wolverine, and he is a talented actor.
Yes, Hugh Jackman has made it clear that he is ready to move on. While there are many great actors who can play Wolverine, Jackman is Wolverine for the fans.
