Is Henry Cavill being approached to play Wolverine in Captain Marvel 2?
After playing Wolverine for seventeen years, Hugh Jackman had become the character for the fans of X-men. Thus, when Hugh Jackman bid farewell to Wolverine after Logan, it became a struggle for Marvel to cast a fitting actor for the extremely admired character. However, there were rumours a few months back about Henry Cavill being approached to play Wolverine in Marvel movies.
Although those rumours were baseless and soon were discarded, recently, few sources from Marvel hinted on Henry Cavill being approached to play an unknown character, in one of the Marvel movies currently under production. By considering the sources, the rumours, and the current proceedings in MCU, we think Henry Cavill might be introduced as the new Wolverine in Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel 2.
How could Wolverine be a part of Captain Marvel 2 in MCU?
Marvel Studios had been eyeing on sneaking Wolverine into MCU. It’s quite evident that Marvel won’t be continuing with the story of Wolverine in Fox Studio’s X-Men. Looking at the history of other Marvel characters, we know Marvel always likes to build the characters from the base, to fit with its plans for MCU. Same is predicted to happen with Wolverine as well. Wolverine, being a Marvel superhero, had been a part of many Marvel comics in the past.
That’s why, it will be most fitting for Marvel to go back to its comics, and start the story for Wolverine where it fits the most. As per Marvel’s comics, Captain Marvel and Wolverine had met with each other, and were friends, before they both became their well-known avatars.
They again worked together in comics after Carol, aka Captain Marvel returned to earth, and Thomas became Wolverine. Marvel has also announced new comic series that’s supposed to bring Captain Marvel and Wolverine together. Thus, there are plenty of friendship in past, and references to comics, that might actually force Marvel to introduce Wolverine in MCU through Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel 2.
Why Henry Cavill might agree to play Wolverine in Captain Marvel 2?
Call it as Henry Cavill betraying DCEU or his character of Superman, but an actor goes where he gets paid and is allowed to act. Last time Henry Cavill’s Superman appeared in a DCEU movie was in 2017 Justice League, that too not in a full-fledged role.
Though Henry Cavill’s contract with DC universe consists of one more Superman movie, it seems highly unlikely anytime soon. Considering the fate of Superman portrayed by Henry Cavil in DCEU, it doesn’t seem a wrong decision if the actor decides to join MCU as the new Wolverine.
The current news of Henry Cavill being approached by Marvel to play a character in MCU also hints at the same possibility. Though the news isn’t confirmed, and neither we know which character he is being approached to play. But we guess that Henry Cavill is being approached to play Wolverine in Captain Marvel 2.

Some fans also criticized the choice for the difference in the height of character and actor. While Wolverine is known to be around 5 feet 7 inches, Henry Cavill is over 6 feet 1 inch. The fans of DCEU were also disappointed with the news. They didn’t seem very happy with their Superman changing the party.
What do you think? Is Henry Cavill a good fit to play new Wolverine in Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel 2?
