Has The MCU Found It's New Wolverine In Taron Egerton?!?


Jay Cochran - July 04, 2022
In a recent interview with the NYTimes, actor Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Rocketman) stated that he has met with Kevin Feige and other Marvel executives in regards to taking on the role of the X-Men's Wolverine/Logan in the MCU. He also told the NYTimes that he would be excited and apprehensive about taking on the role since Hugh Jackman is so heavily associated with that role and that it would be very hard for someone else to do it.

Jackman is a fan of Edgerton (they worked together) and Jackman is tight with Feige, so I am sure this was not a simple casual meeting. Also, for those thinking Taron doesnt look right for the part, neither did Jackman! He was about 8 inches too tall, and he wasnt jacked for the first movie either. You probably wouldnt have approved of an over 6 foot tall Musical Theater actor for the role back then either, and we all know he did an excellent job. Point being, I dont think Feige would consider anyone who wouldnt be able to pull it off, so why not just put a little faith in Feige and see how this all plays out.

I really enjoyed Rocket Man, thought he was absolutely fantastic as a young Elton John, and I also really liked the Kingsman films too. That being said....him as Wolverine?I don't know. He certainly wouldn't be the worst choice, but....ehhh, yeah, I don't know man. He's got too much of a babyface to be Wolverine, imo, and the thought of him with Wolverine hair is making me snicker (I know, it's a silly hairdo regardless, but like Hugh...the right performer could pull it off). Right now I'm glad it's just "talks."

You know what Marvel Studios like? Surprises. You know what they don't like? Actors talking about things and ruining said surprises. Guaranteed they'd have wanted to announce something like that at a con. I'm not against him for the role but he'll probably be told pretty quick to shut up about things if he wants the job.

He hasn't said he is Logan, he said that he's been talking to Feige and co. about being Logan. Nothing has been confirmed.

I don't think its fair that you feel I should "stop talking about it" when I see plenty of commenters here doing the same on this, and a wide variety of topics.

This isn't a Black Panther thread. You bringing that up is somewhat random and it's off topic (you just used the Wolverine casting as an opening to post about T'Challa). Your post is quite a bit more off topic than comments from other members in this thread. Whether you agree with that assessment or not, a moderator asked you to drop the subject. Now two are doing so. Please keep the discussion focused on Taron Egerton and Wolverine and leave the Black Panther stuff for more relevant threads. You won't be asked a third time.

I don't know if off the bat I love this choice (or rumoured choice), He does fit the bill in terms of height and him being a younger actor who can carry the role for a long time, he is a good actor and has already proven himself in tons of action roles, I just don't know if I feel like he looks grizzly enough, he has young eyes, Wolverine always seemed beaten and broken and weathered, I always felt like Charlie Hunnam could make a decent Wolverine despite him not being the best actor, he has the dishevelled look I'd imagine for Logan.

I always liked this pic someone mocked up for Charlie as Wolverine

all in all its about what they do with the actor and the portrayal in the end, so I don't care who it is, as long as its done right.

I approve of this casting choice. He's a good actor.

Whether or not its MCU, Sony, MGM, Warner Bros. studios have often re-cast roles, all the way from supporting characters to main stars. They've xhanged on a number of issues. Wasn't James Gunn fired from directing in the MCU ? And then they (disney) brought him back. How do you know they wont change their decision? I don't think its fair that you feel I should "stop talking about it" when I see plenty of commenters here doing the same on this, and a wide variety of topics. Egerton might do just fine as Wolverine. They may go with someone else. And they could do the same with any other character/actor.

Sure, but, Black Panther 2 has been filmed already. It feels unlikely to me theyll just not mention TChalla in that movie, sobest case scenario for youhis family believes him dead and turns out to be wrong.

I know hes in his 40s now and committed to being Homelander in The Boys but I still want Antony Starr in the role. He definitely had the Wolverine intensity to him when he was in Banshee a few years back

Not the same thing. Jackman was part of a separate franchise not the MCU. T'Challa was part of the MCU. Also will you please stop bringing that topic up? They have made their decision and ain't changing so stop talking about it.
