There have been rumours going viral online suggesting Henry Cavill may be the new Wolverine for Captain Marvel Part Two. This would mean the iconic role played by Hugh Jackman has finally found it’s successor.
Saying goodbye to Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in the 2017 flick Logan was hard. The audience had become used to seeing Jackman play the iconic X-Men character. And naturally, the send-off was emotional and excellent and only fitting to the Wolverine we had seen on our screen for 20 years.
Henry Cavill is reportedly in talks of becoming the next Wolverine of the MCU in the upcoming Captain Marvel Part 2, alongside Brie Larson. And although, there hasn’t been much information released yet about Captain Marvel Part 2 this seems to be the one that fans having taken a keen interest in.

What Do We Know Captain Marvel 2
One thing we know for sure is that since Disney has acquired FOX, fans have been wondering how exactly are X-Men and Fantastic Four characters being incorporated into Marvel. There will be a newer, younger generation of actors donning on these iconic characters and Henry Cavill could be one of them.
A year after the first Captain Marvel movie came out the second part was given a green light. This did not come as a surprise as the first Captain Marvel raked in a whopping 1.2 Billion dollars at the box office.
In the 2019 flick, we saw Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) team up with Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) to re-discover her human roots after being trained and brainwashed by the Kree.
Captain Marvel and Wolverine crossed paths in the 2018 comics so the fans/detective of Marvel are wondering if the makers of the film decide to take that route the second part.
Is Superman The Next Wolverine
Let’s make one thing clear. The marvel fans are not happy with this rumour.
Henry Cavill isn’t new to the world of superheroes. He previously played Clark Kent aka Superman in Man of Steel in 2013. He then reprised the role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016. The next year, he donned on the role of superman again in Justice League alongside Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot.
The unlikeliness of this rumour boils down to a number of things. There are very few actors who make the jump from being a DC superhero to a Marvel one. Moreover, Henry Cavill may be a star but does he have the ability to pull of the iconic role of Wolverine, one cannot be too sure.
Also, Wolverine being introduced in Captain Marvel 2 movie alongside Brie Larson doesn’t seem the direction creators of the film would want to take. Captain Marvel 2 is one of the highly anticipated films of Phase five and taking the attention away from our superhero Captain Marvel may backfire.
And if that is not reason enough,
Cavill is currently playing the role of Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher. The Witcher is Netflix’s one of the most popular show right now. It seems unlikely that Cavill will have the time to juggle two major franchise at the same time.
For Marvel, it is only a very tough and uphill battle from here. The audience had a long journey with Wolverine played by Hugh Jackman before saying a final goodbye to him in Logan. Trying to replicate that kind of success is a huge responsibility and we’re not entirely sure if Henry Cavill is feeling up for it.
