Taron Egerton has set the record straight on rumors that he has been cast as the next Wolverine by Marvel Studios.
Despite the announcement of two avengers movies and The Fantastic Four for Phase Six, Marvel Studios is still holding back on its plans for the live-action X-Men. However, Marvel Studios recently acquired Patrick Stewart as Professor X in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and revealed that Kamala Khan is a mutant in Ms. Marvel.
Does Taron Egerton play Wolverine?
Fans are still eager to find out when X-Men heavy hitters like Wolverine, Cyclops, and more will finally enter the MCU under Marvel Studios’ vision. Kingsman Star Taron Egerton has been a fan favorite to succeed Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and the 32-year-old actor has revealed he’s already met Kevin Feige. On the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Egerton clarified that although the role of Wolverine excites him, he was not cast in the role:
“So the reality is there’s been a lot of fancasting for it. I took a town hall meeting with Kevin about four years ago, where I said I like movies, I’d like to do something, and he said, it would be great if we could come up with something. I left and haven’t spoken to him since. I check my email every five minutes. There was one character that I mentioned in that reunion, but it wasn’t the one, so that puts things into perspective. There is no reality in that.
