With Marvel rebooting the X-Men franchise soon, Disney is said to be looking for a younger actor to take on the role of Wolverine. One actor who some people want to take on the role is Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and artist BossLogic gives us a mock-up on what Radcliffe would look like as the ageless X-Man.
Check it out:
Though Jackman’s Wolverine brings the attitude of the character very well, he doesn’t quite have the build for a comic-accurate version of Logan. In the comics, Logan was known to be very short and stocky, while in the films, he is a lot more fit and tall.
With Marvel Studios giving us a comic-accurate Peter Parker with Tom Holland, a lot of people are hoping that they do the same with the X-Men when they’re rebooted. Radcliffe has become an ideal choice for Logan mainly because of his build, but I think his voice is kind of too "young" to pull off a character like Wolverine. If you ask me, Wolverine should be played by someone like Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) or Tom Hardy if wasn’t cast as Venom.
For now, we don’t know how far Marvel Studios has gone into the development of a new X-Men, but hopefully they already have some kind of set-up when Avengers: Endgame releases. Personally, I wish they worked on Fantastic Four first. When are we going to see an actual Galactus that isn’t just a scary cloud?
