Hugh Jackman Is Wolverine. No actor has ever portrayed and personified a comic book character as well as he has with Wolverine that spans 17 years and 8 films. As much we want him to continue portraying the role, someone eventually has to succeed him as the next Wolverine but the question is, who could that be? We take a look at the top actors that could be the next Wolverine in our list below.
Yes, he already plays Aquaman in the DCEU but there's no real reason why he can't take on and portray another superhero role outside of scheduling conflicts. There is a precedent for it after all. Josh Brolin and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje have both done it.
Jai Courtney has been appearing in a lot of major blockbuster films in recent years like Divergent, Terminator, and A Good Day To Die Hard. He has proven himself to be quite an actor. He also has the physique and attitude to be able to nail the Wolverine role down.
Tom Hardy has that whole rugged and brooding intensity down that needed of him should he land the role as the next Wolverine and just about every action movie that he has been in has been great and would be fit for the character's impending reboot.
Richard Armitage is a talented English that would do well should he be considered as a possible new Wolverine. His experience and roles speak for themselves. Plus, he has the look and build down.
Most people would probably know Charlie Hunnam as Jax in Sons of Anarchy and he did a great job with it. He has struggled a bit to land a new role and this could be his next big break. There's already buzz that he could be great as the new Wolverine anyway.
Travis Fimmel's role as Ragnar Lothbrok in Vikings did great for his career that skyrocketed his popularity. Landing the new Wolverine would be his big movie break and what a role it would be. The intensity that he brought to Vikings will server him well here as well.
Marvel has been in talks with Keanu Reeves for just about every possible role that he could take on for his MCU debut so you might as well include Wolverine as a possible candidate in the list.
There's nothing like the original to be to properly nail the character down and with Hugh Jackman himself teasing that he could reprise his role yet again, we are left hoping that this indeed would be the case. It could really happen so we're not ruling this one out just yet.
