Hollywood performer Taron Egerton, who portrayed Sir Elton John in the 2019 film “Rocketman,” has declared his desire to one day take on the role of Logan, also known as Wolverine.
The Hollywood Reporter claims that while speaking to a press organisation to promote his Apple TV Plus series “Black Bird,” the actor said that he had spoken with Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, and that he would like to take Hugh Jackman’s place as the next Wolverine.
“I don’t believe that would be improper to state. Hugh is so closely identified with the role that I’d question if it’d be extremely tough for someone else to do it, so I’d be both excited and concerned at the same time,” Egerton joked about his interest in the role to the tabloid.
But perhaps, if it happens, they’ll give me a chance, he continued. Jackman last portrayed the X-Men member in 2017’s Logan. He previously starred alongside Egerton in 2016’s “Eddie the Eagle.” Additionally, Egerton has previously discussed the role in public. He acknowledged to GQ in 2019 that some Marvel fans had hoped he would be cast as Wolverine.
“It’s incredibly flattering that anyone would believe I’d be a good fit for the role. I adore Marvel, but this is merely fan fiction. According to Egerton at the time, quoted by The Hollywood Reporter, “There is no basis for those rumours. Taron Egerton is in discussions with Kevin Feige and other executives from the Marvel Studios about taking over Hugh Jackman’s role as Wolverine.
THE ACTOR, WHO WAS MOST RECENTLY SEEN IN ROCKETMAN, EXPRESSED HIS WILLINGNESS TO PLAY THE PART TO THE NEW YORK TIMES.
He stated: “Hugh is so closely identified with the job that I would question if it would be really challenging for someone else to take it on. I would be thrilled but also nervous. But hopefully they’ll give me a chance if it does happen.” Egerton’s next project is the upcoming drama Black Bird on Apple TV+, which will premiere on July 8.
