While it’s not clear what Marvel has planned for the mutants, the new concept design shows off Taron Egerton as Wolverine.
Taron Egerton gets the classic Wolverine look to replace Hugh Jackman in an awesome new fan edit for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It’s been a while since Marvel’s Kevin Feige updated fans on the studio’s plans to introduce mutants and the Fantastic Four into its cinematic universe, and many are still wondering how the franchise will bring the two sets of characters into the fold. After Hugh Jackman delivered a truly stunning performance as Wolverine in James Mangold’s Logan, fans have long-debated who should be the next star to pick up the Adamantium claws in live-action. This cool artwork imagines Kingsman star Taron Egerton as Wolverine in the iconic yellow and blue costume.
The artwork from digital artist ‘britedit’ on Instagram gives Taron Egerton a costume which fits the aesthetic of the MCU, boasting intricate details across his chest and shoulders as well as honoring the mutant’s long comic history with the yellow slash designs on the sides of his outfit. Interestingly, the artist has aged Egerton up to replace Hugh Jackman, making him look closer to the Old Man Logan run of comics rather than a younger hero. You can see Egerton as Wolverine below.
What do you think of the concept design of Taron Egerton as Wolverine? Do you think the MCU should wait before introducing the famous mutant? Can anybody truly replace Hugh Jackman? Let us know in the comments!
Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige confirmed plans to include mutants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe during last year’s San Diego Comic-Con. However, the studio is reportedly in no rush to introduce the X-Men to the MCU, meaning it will likely be some time before we learn who will replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
