Taron Egerton met Marvel’s Kevin Feige and wants to play Wolverine in the MCU
Taron Egerton has reportedly met with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige about playing Wolverine in a future project. The 32-year-old actor told a publication that he would love to try out the iconic X-Men character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe if things worked out. That said, Egerton is a little “worried” about the same, since most people still associate the human mutant with Hugh Jackman. Egerton, however, has not commented on what was discussed during his said meeting with Feige, suggesting nothing is set in stone yet.
Egerton told The New York Times: “I don’t think it would be wrong to say that. I would be excited but also apprehensive, because Hugh is so associated with the role that I would wonder if he would “It would be very difficult for someone else to do. But I hope that if it happens, they will give me a chance.”
Jackman, who starred alongside Egerton in the 2016 biographical sports drama Eddie the eaglefirst played Wolverine in the 2000 version x-men. He then tried the Claw Man in a series of X-Men films, with 2017 Logan marking his final appearance as the titular character. Jackman further stated that he had no intention of standing for the role again.
Interestingly, this isn’t the first time Egerton has spoken about stepping into Jackman’s shoes. He had previously expressed his admiration for Marvel: “That someone thinks I’d be good for the role is really flattering. I love Marvel, but that’s just fan stuff. There’s no basis to those. rumors.”
Egerton’s latest comments about playing Wolverine come at a time when he’s busy promoting the crime drama miniseries Black bird, which will debut on July 8 on Apple TV+. The 32-year-old will also be seen as maverick video game developer Henk Rogers in the upcoming biographical drama Tetris – also backed by Apple TV+ – which chronicles the development of the titular video game.
Can Egerton achieve his dream of becoming the next Wolverine? The MCU is rumored to be developing a new property with X-Men/mutants, but we haven’t heard anything about it since Feige first teased it at San Diego Comic-Con years ago. Maybe keep an eye out for those MCU post-credits scenes.
