Fans Weigh In On Rumor That HENRY CAVILL Will Play Wolverine In 'Captain Marvel 2'
Disney's huge acquisition of 20th Century Fox signaled a massive shakeup that will dictate the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It also means we'll soon be seeing the X-Men in the franchise for the very first time.
Of course, when you think of the mutants, the claw-slashing outlaw Wolverine instantly comes to mind. Rumors are swirling all over social media that he'll make his MCU debut in Phase 5.
According to previous reports, Kingsman star Taron Egerton was in serious talks about taking on the mutant role previously played by Hugh Jackman. He eventually denied it, putting an end to the rumors in a snap.
Now, another crazy rumor suggests that Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill will be jumping ship to the Marvel brand to be Logan. According to gossip site Just Jared, Henry is being eyed to star alongside Brie Larson in Captain Marvel 2. No official confirmation has been made but do you see The Witcher actor as Wolverine?
Of course, fans had their say regarding the crazy MCU rumor. Check out the tweets here:
