TARON EGERTON Shuts Down Wolverine Casting Rumors
The entire geek community absolutely lost it when rumors circulated a couple of weeks back that Kingsman and Rocketman star Taron Egerton is Marvel Cinematic Universe-bound via the X-Men film reboot.
It all started when Marvel Comics writer Mark Millar made a bold claim that Taron will play Wolverine in the franchise, even assuring fans that he's never wrong.
From 2002. Always remember I'm never wrong. PS Taron Egerton will be the next Wolverine :) https://t.co/6OtsLbnWqu— Mark Millar (@mrmarkmillar) July 15, 2019
But to those eager to see Taron do some claw-slashing in the big screen, we hate to burst your bubble. The British actor already shut down the rumors linking him to the MCU's future. However, he's down to be part of the franchise given the opportunity. "I love Marvel and I love the movies and I'd love the excuse to get in shape. I mean, I'd love to be a part of it. Whether that one's realistic or not I don't know."
