The star gets a bulky set of armor for the MCU!
Kingsman star Taron Egerton suits up in the yellow Wolverine costume to replace Hugh Jackman on the big screen.
A stunning concept design imagines Taron Egerton as Wolverine to replace Hugh Jackman, giving the star a bulky, realistic version of the classic yellow costume for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s still not clear how mutants will be re-introduced on the big screen, but Egerton would definitely be a good choice for the role. Hopefully after WandaVision and Scarlet Witch’s role in the Doctor Strange sequel, audiences will have some idea of how the X-Men will make their MCU debut.
The design from Boss Logic shows off Taron Egerton in an armored version on the yellow suit to replace Hugh Jackman, also giving him the comic-accurate hair Logan’s known for. Another image in the collection pictures how Egerton’s head would fit into the intimidating cowl worn by the hero. Finally, a stunning image pits this version of the mutant against Omega Red. Take a look at Taron Egerton as Wolverine below.
