Taron Egerton is speaking out in response to rumors that he’s in the running to play Wolverine when the character is introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Now that Disney owns Fox, the X-Men characters can finally appear in the MCU and it’s rumored that new actors will be cast to play them.
Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine for nearly two decades and Taron actually worked with him in the movie Eddie the Eagle.
“I think that I love those films and I’ve got lots of friends who play roles in those films and they love it and they have a great time. I think the Logan thing is really interesting. I’m slightly baffled by it, I’ve never felt like a Wolverine sort of guy,” Taron said while at ACE Comic Con in Chicago this weekend.
He added, “I know that one’s a few years away. I know that Kevin [Feige] spoke about it being a few years away. Maybe in a few years, I’ll look rough enough for it. I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m a fan of those fans and of course I would love to be a part of them.”
