Is Tom Hardy the right actor for the role?
New artwork imagines Venom star Tom Hardy as Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine successor with a comic book accurate costume.
While Tom Hardy might be a little busy with the Venom sequel in the pipeline, this fan art sees him steppping into Wolverine’s iconic yellow costume for the Marvel Cineamtic Universe to replace Hugh Jackman. The question of who should follow Jackman as Wolverine has been a hot topic of conversation ever since Logan hit theaters back in 2017. Tom Hardy, Keanu Reeves, Henry Cavill and Taron Egerton have all been popular choices among fans online, with the occasional suggestion of Dacre Montgomery and Shia LaBeouf.
The latest fan art of Tom Hardy as Wolverine comes from digital artist ‘mizuriau’ on Instagram. Not only can the actor be seen with the stunning yellow and black Wolverine costume, but he’s also rocking the mutant’s iconic hairstyle. In recent news, The Boys actor Antony Starr expressed interest in picking up the role from Hugh Jackman. Although if it comes down between Hardy and the star behind the terrifying Homelander, we’re not sure who would fit best. You can see Tom Hardy as Wolverine in the concept design below.

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.
