Does Marvel Have Their New Wolverine?

Taron Egerton by Gavin Bond

Whoever takes on the role of Wolverine next, because let’s be honest, we are getting a new Wolverine, is going to have some pretty hefty boots to fill.

Now it seems that perhaps we have a clue as to who is to replace Hugh Jackman as the X-Men icon, Taron Egerton of Rocketman and Kingsman fame. During a recent interview with thew New York Times, Egerton confirmed that he has met with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and discussed his entry into the Marvel Universe.

Egerton commented : “I’d be excited but I’d be apprehensive as well, because Hugh is so associated with the role that I’d wonder if it’d be very difficult for someone else to do it… But hopefully if it does come around, they’ll give me a shot.”
