There's A Big Rumour That Taron Egerton Could Be The Next Wolverine
X-Men fans, gear up because there's a huge rumour going around that Taron Egerton could be the next Wolverine.
Of course, Hugh Jackman has made the character his own over the past two decades, but it is being reported that Marvel is on the hunt for his successor.
And, while there's certainly huge potential for the Rocketman star to take over from Jackman, he spoke to MTV at Comic Con about the rumours and has made us all a little less hopeful about the possibility of him taking on the role.
“I think you need better beard game for Wolverine than I have,” he said.
“Look, there’s no grounding for the rumor. I know that that’s probably in the pipeline at some point for Marvel but I would imagine it’s a little way off.”
“If I was asked it would be incredible. I have to confess, I think sometimes there are better candidates,” Taron added. “Or actually, you know, who knows, because in five years maybe I’d be grizzly enough.”
Egerton and Jackman previously starred alongside each other in Eddie The Eagle and - beard or not - we reckon he'd smash the role out of the park.
