Taron Egerton toldthat he was in talks with Marvel CEO Kevin Feige and other company executives for the role of Wolverine, previously played by Hugh Jackman for many years.
The Rocketman and Kingsman star spoke in an interview with The New York Times about his desire to take over from Jackman and play the most recognizable character in X-Men.
I would love to play Wolverine, but with caution. Hugh is so connected to this role that I wonder if anyone else could take it on. Hope they give me a chance.
Fans have been debating Taron Egerton as one of the main candidates for the role of Wolverine for several years now. This could prompt the actor to negotiate with Marvel.
At the end of July, Comic-Con will be held in San Diego, where the company usually makes announcements about the future of the MCU.
