Thanks to the Multiverse, everything is now possible, the Russo brothers have understood this and already have an idea of who could take over the role of Wolverine.
If the first cinematographic works of the MCU were done in parallel with the X-Men universe, despite their common membership in Marvel comics, a certain Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness came to complicate the matter. When this sequence of Doctor Strange was released in May 2022, the whole world was shocked (we’re hardly exaggerating) to discover Patrick Stewart in his role of Professor X. This appearance confirmed that from now on, the Avengers and the X-Men were going to be able to coexist.
This turnaround was made possible following the acquisition of Fox, which held the rights to the franchise, by Disney in 2019. The integration of the X-Men into the MCU was therefore only a matter of time and Marvel Studios is already working on a reboot of the sagain addition to the reboot of 4 Fantastic whose rights have also been bought out. While Disney probably won’t rule out taking on well-known actors for its sequels and remakes, as they did with Professor Xavier, thanks to the Multiverse, any actor could take on a role, even an actor who has already played in a film adapted from Marvel comics.
Directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgamethe Russo brothers know the Marvel universe as well as a certain Chris Evans, who plays Captain America in all four MCU movies they’ve directed. In full promo for their next Netflix movie, The Gray Mana film in which Chris Evans holds one of the main roles alongside Ryan Gosling, Joe Russo entrusted to ComicBook.com in which role he would see his favorite actor:
“Wolverine. Evans has incredible talent and great physical ability, and he can control his body really well. He’s an incredible actor. I don’t mean that in a bad way, but he has nothing to do with with Captain America. Steve Rogers is very controlled and quiet, understated. Chris is energetic and funny and charismatic, and he brings a lot of energy to the set. I would love to see him do something like Wolverine.”
The Russo brothers therefore imagine their little protege very well, who has already interpreted Johnny Storm alias the Human Torch in Fantastic Four and Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer, take over the role of Wolverine in an upcoming film and honestly, we doubt that aficionados of the saga will accept that an actor other than Hugh Jackman dons the sharp claws of the mutant. If, for the moment, nothing is done, we can very well imagine Disney having fun with its characters as they did for the sequence with the Illuminati in Doctor Strange 2 appealed to John Krasinski to interpret Mr Fantastic.
And then let’s also remember that Chris Evans is not the only actor to have played in several films in the Marvel universe since Josh Brolin, the famous Thanos, also played in Deadpool 2 and Michael B. Jordan played the Human Torch in the 2015 film before joining the cast of Black Panther. While waiting to know the future plans of Disney / Marvel, see you on July 13, 2022 in cinemas to discover Thor: Love and Thunder.
