Ever since Disney completed its acquisition of 21st Century Fox’s film and television assets, Marvel fans have been itching to hear about the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool finally making their way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Everyone has been anticipating to see X-Men favourites in the MCU and that includes Wolverine, a character that has long been played by Hugh Jackman. Of course, Wolverine would have to be played by a different actor if he were to ever appear in the MCU – after all, Jackman retired from the role after having his swan song in Logan.

Though fans have been throwing around all sorts of names as Jackman’s replacement, the actor’s asking everyone to call off the search, because he’s found the perfect successor for himself.

Taking to Twitter, the Australian actor decided to retweet a picture of two adorable candidates for Marvel’s new Wolverine.

“Call off the search for a new #Wolverine. Here’s your heir and a spare. @yencita09,” Jackman wrote on his post.

Admittedly, it’s hard to say no to these two. Twins in matching wolverine onesies? What’s not to love.

Of course, Marvel will still have to look for an actual replacement for Wolverine in the MCU. Unfortunately, the studio has yet to announce its plans to bring the X-Men into its popular film franchise. There’s barely been any word on what the studio has in mind for the mutant heroes that Disney acquired after purchasing Fox. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Phase 4 of the MCU will begin when Black Widow premieres on November 6, 2020.
