Could Taron Egerton Be The Next Wolverine?

Could Taron Egerton Be The Next Wolverine?

A big rumor going into 2019 Comic-Con was that Taron Egerton was going to be announced as the next Wolverine.

Speaking with MTV, the 29-year-old Rocketman actor shut down the rumor that we would take over the role from Hugh Jackman.

“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.”

Hugh has played the role in the X-Men universe in many films over the last 19 years. Hugh and Taron have worked together previously on the film Eddie the Eagle.
