Fans haven’t really had much time to process Hugh Jackman leaving the role of Wolverine and now, Scott Eastwood wants the role of The Wolverine? Read on…
Now, that Hugh Jackman has made his last appearance as The Wolverine, the fan-favorite mutant, in Logan earlier this year the role is vacant.
With more X-Men movie in the pipeline someone will have to play Wolverine if his character returns in a prequel or other projects. Many believe that Wolverine didn’t die in Logan, and if Scott Eastwood takes on the character this could be that right time to change actors.
If given the chance, Scott Eastwood would like a crack at re-casting Wolverine. The 31-year-old actor recently appeared at New York Comic-Con to promote his new movie Pacific Rim: Uprising. After the panel Scott Eastwood spoke with Comicbook.com and was asked what superhero he’d like to play.
He enthusiastically expressed:
“Weapon X. I mean, Logan! You gotta give it to Wolverine! Wolverine, all day.”
If he takes on Jackman’s role of Wolverine, that is some mighty big shoes to fill, but being the son of Clint Eastwood, Scott Eastwood is probably used to living up to a pretty big legacy.
