Since Logan in 2017, Hugh Jackman hasn’t handed over the legendary clutches of the most famous mutant in the Marvel stable – no, the cameo in Deadpool 2 doesn’t count. If the Australian actor has made it clear to whoever wanted to hear that he will never slip into the skin of Wolverine again, Disney still intends to exploit its X-Men now that Fox belongs to the house with big ears. .For a few months now, it’s been the transfer window to find out who could play the hero with sideburns in the MCU. A younger version, no doubt. While his name was already turning quite a bit, it was Taron Egerton himself who put the subject on the table. Asked by the New York Times, the actor says he was approached by Kevin Feige’s teams, and explains thus: “I would be excited, and also quite anxious, because Hugh is so associated with the role that I wonder if it wouldn’t be too difficult for another person to take it back. […] With a bit of luck, if it works, they’ll give me a chance.” The actor has the shoulders, the build and the face for the role. It remains to be seen whether Disney will agree, and how the hero would potentially be integrated. in the over-armored agenda of Marvel releases.
