Taron Egerton succeeds Hugh Jackman as the next Wolverine in fan art for Marvel Studios’ upcoming reboot.
Hugh Jackman played Wolverine longer than anyone who has played a superhero on the big screen. Hugh Jackman hung up the claws after Logan and Marvel Studios are now in full control of Wolverine and the X-Men franchise. Many fans don’t think Marvel Studios will keep Wolverine on the sidelines for long. Hugh Jackman will be a tough act to follow for any actor, but fans think Taron Egerton might be up for the challenge.
Taron Egerton broke out with his role in Kingsman: The Secret Service and earned a lot of critical acclaim this year for playing Elton John in Rocketman. Taron Egerton could be what Marvel Studios is looking for in a new Wolverine. Despite his 17 years as Wolverine, Hugh Jackman never sported the yellow spandex from the comics. Given Marvel Studios’ track record, the next Wolverine may finally bring the comic book suit to the big screen. Fan art from Instagram imagines how great the yellow Wolverine suit could look on Taron Egerton. You can see the Wolverine fan art below:

Here’s the synopsis for Fox’s Dark Phoenix:
This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.
Written and directed by Simon Kinberg, Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.
Dark Phoenix is now available on Digital HD, 4k Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman, Wolverine, and the future of the X-Men.
