The famous comics writer Mark Millar has created a wave among the fans of Wolverine. He has said with much confidence that actor Taron Egerton will be the next to fill the shoes of Wolverine. Mark Millar was previously associated with Marvel and DC.
This prediction by Mark Millar came after a fan reminded him that he had correctly predicted the future twice to the dot
And later as a response, Millar posted on Twitter, “Always remember I’m never wrong. PS Taron Egerton will be the next Wolverine.”
Where is the old Wolverine?
Hugh Jackman announced in 2017 that he would step down from his Wolverine role after 17 years. And this started a series of speculations as to who would be the next to play the part.
So, the rumours that Egerton would be next had been in the air for a while. But the actor himself addressed these rumours saying he wasn’t sure. It was in an interview on Heart Breakfast, that he said, “That one, I think, is just a rumour. As far as I’m aware it’s unfounded. I don’t know if I’m quite grisly enough. I mean, if the people at Marvel think I am, then great, let’s go. But I think there are better candidates. But I would love to be involved with that world somewhere.”
Taron Egerton and Mark Millar have worked together before. Previously, Kingsman: The Secret Service and the sequel were both largely based on comics by Millar. He was in fact also the executive producer on these movies in which Egerton was in a major role.
