Hugh Jackman Reveals His Pick for the Next Wolverine
Hugh Jackman flashes a big smile as he arrives at the Ed Sullivan Theater to make an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday (September 23) in New York City.
The 46-year-old actor was joined by the CEO of the Global Poverty Project Hugh Evans as they talked to Stephen about the upcoming Global Citizen Festival and their goal of ending extreme poverty by 2030.
The day before, Hugh was spotted arriving at the BBC Radio 1 studios to promote his new film Pan in London, England.
Hugh was recently asked by MTV to reveal who he thinks would be the right successor for Wolverine.
“I haven’t really given it a lot of thought,” Hugh said. “I’ve been asked that question a lot, and I’m always like, ‘I don’t wanna make it too easy on the studio to replace me,’ you know? I’ve still got one more to do. I’m sure they’re already talking about it, and there’s some actor [they’ve told] ‘shh, keep it quiet but we want you next.’”
“He’s younger than me for sure,” Hugh added. “I think Tom Hardy would be a great Wolverine.”
