Jason Momoa would grab the chance if he ever gets offered to be the next Wolverine after Hugh Jackman. But would he be willing to quit Aquaman’s job profile to take up Wolverine’s?
Jason Momoa is among the long list of people who want to take up Wolverine’s role ever since Hugh Jackman said goodbye to the character. While it is highly unlikely that Hugh Jackman will ever be coming back, fans are still hoping for his return. But in the meantime, the hunt to find the next perfect wolverine is on! With the rising coronavirus paranoia and productions shutting down, Jason Momoa might actually be your next Wolverine.
- Hugh Jackman portrayed as Wolverine and took him the title of ‘longest career as a live-action Marvel superhero’
- Superman actor, Henry Cavill was reportedly being eyed for Wolverine in Captain Marvel 2
- Aquaman actor, Jason Momoa would love to be the next Wolverine in MCU
Wolverine, Superman And Aquaman
Hugh Jackman was the best and only Wolverine that X-Men fans witnessed. Now that he has quit the role after perfecting it for approximately two decades, the makers are on a lookout. In fact, rumours are that Hugh Jackman will come back as Wolverine. But since Jackman voluntarily left the role, the possibility of this rumour becoming a reality are quite slim.
Meanwhile, the most recent reports also stated that Henry Cavill will be Wolverine in Captain Marvel 2. But soon, there were contradictory rumours claiming that Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman in DCEU’s Black Adam. Well, it is nearly impossible that the star will be cast in both MCU and DCEU at the same time (given their ‘rival’ status).
In fact, the latest reports claim that WB is not considering Henry Cavill for Superman. This makes one look back to another big name from the DC Universe who is interested in playing Wolverine in MCU.
Incoming: Jason Momoa!
Jason Momoa would love to be the next Wolverine after Hugh Jackman
According to reports, DC’s Aquaman actor, Jason Momoa, would love to star as Wolverine. In fact, he has wanted it for some time now. Jason Momoa told Cinemablend in June 2019, “I’d love to play Wolverine. (Hugh Jackman) was phenomenal. I grew up just loving Wolverine.”
Yes, he is a DC superhero. But is there really anything in an actor’s contract that binds him/her and prevents them from casting into another superhero cinematic universe? Yes, we do not see that happening very often. But there have been cases.
Moreover, as Kevin Feige once told, it would be a long time before Marvel incorporates the X-Men into MCU after Disney purchased Fox. So, that increases the chances for Jason Momoa to be cast as Wolverine in MCU. Neither Hugh Jackman nor Henry Cavill will be seen as Wolverine. With coronavirus surrounding major productions, Jason Momoa’s interest in the role, and the lack of other options for MCU, might just make him Wolverine.
