With the knowledge that the X-Men will eventually join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in its next phase or nearby, there has been much speculation over who would succeed Hugh Jackman in playing the remarkably realistic Wolverine role (assuming he’s truly done after Logan and can’t be persuaded to return). Taron Egerton is attempting it, but within a loose bound.
Egerton expressed interest in his new Apple TV+ series Blackbird while speaking with the New York Times.
He has even met with Kevin Feige and the Marvel team, which is not surprising given his rising celebrity profile and success in other film industries, but it is unknown what projecting ideas may have been discussed.
“I don’t figure it would be inappropriate to say that,” he says. “I’d be energized however I’d be fearful also, on the grounds that Hugh is so connected with the job that I’d contemplate whether it’d be undeniably challenging for another person to make it happen.”
Egerton, obviously, would have the option to run the thought, might he thusly decide, by Jackman himself, since the pair cooperated in Eddie The Eagle.
What’s more, regardless of the worry, it seems Egerton is anxious. “Ideally in the event that it comes around,” he adds, “they’ll try me out.”
