After Hugh Jackman let it be known that he will not be returning to the Wolverine role, fans of the character began to fan cast for who they wanted to see play him. The majority eyes looked to Scott Eastwood to replace Hugh Jackman & Eastwood has entertained the idea on a few occasions. Eastwood was interviewed recently about him jumping onto the big screen as Wolverine & here’s what he had to say:
“I love Wolverine. He’s one of my favorite comic book characters of all time. He’s a renegade. Total badass renegade. He’s kind of, you know, a loose cannon…doesn’t play by the rules…he’s the kind of character that I love.”
When asked if he’d be up to play Wolverine, he said:
Eastwood isn’t new to the comic book universe, as we’ve saw him in Warner Bros. Pictures Suicide Squad film. When asked who he’d want to see replace him as Wolverine, Jackman said “Maybe Shah Rukh Khan could play it.” What do you think about Eastwood following through as Wolverine? Let us know!
