A stunning concept design shows Scott Eastwood as Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine successor in the MCU.
Hugh Jackman has officially retired from the role of Wolverine. The Australian star first appeared as the reluctant hero in 2000’s X-Men before calling it curtains with 2017’s Logan. Jackman’s run as the mutant has gone down in comic book history as one of the most memorable on-screen performances. With Fox now under Disney’s wings, all eyes are on who the people behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe will cast as Wolverine.
The MCU now has access to the X-Men characters and while no projects have been formally announced, it’s clear that the studio is hard at work behind-the-scenes trying to craft the perfect reboot. With Hugh Jackman out, the MCU has the tall order of finding the next Wolverine. While a variety of names have been discussed by fans, there’s one that has consistently popped up throughout the years.
Scott Eastwood, best remembered for his roles in Suicide Squad, The Fate of the Furious and Pacific Rim: Uprising, has always been one of the most-named fan castings for Wolverine. While it’s unclear if the star would want to join the MCU, it’s certain that he’s got the look for it, and we’ve got a concept design to prove it to you!
Artist Jakub Masłowski has perfectly imagined what Scott Eastwood would look like as the MCU’s Wolverine, making him the perfect successor to Hugh Jackman. Check out the design below.
If you think Scott Eastwood looks great as Wolverine, you’ll be excited to know that the star previously expressed his love for the Marvel character. “I love Wolverine. He’s one of my favorite comic book characters of all time,” Eastwood previously told ScreenRant. “He’s a renegade. Total badass renegade. He’s kind of, you know, a loose cannon…doesn’t play by the rules…he’s the kind of character that I love.”
Will Scott Eastwood take on the role that Hugh Jackman perfected? Nothing has been confirmed but we’re certain he’d be able to live up to Jackman’s legend and provide us a Wolverine we’d know and love!
Directed by James Mangold, Logan stars Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Eriq LaSalle, Elizabeth Rodriguez, and Boyd Holbrook. Logan is available on Digital HD, Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
