Actor Taron Egerton confirmed in a recent interview that he has met with Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige to discuss his possible role in the ‘X-Men’ franchise. This role would be Wolverine, taking over from Hugh Jackman in character:
I don’t think it’s wrong to say this. I would be excited but intimidated at the same time, as Hugh is so attached to the role that I wonder if it would be very difficult for someone else to do it. But hopefully, if it does happen in the end, they’ll give me a chance.
It would not be the first time that the actor (who coincided with Hugh Jackman in ‘Eddie, the eagle’) plays a comic character. At the time, We already saw him in the role of Eggsy for the two installments of ‘Kingsman’ Directed by Matthew Vaughn.
For now, Egerton has yet to release ‘Locked Up with the Devil’, his latest series that adapts the memoir of a former prisoner by Dennis Lehane (‘Shutter Island’) and which premieres on July 8 on Apple TV +.
