The Marvel Cinematic Universe is wide open for the debut of the mutants, an event every fan is waiting for. Alongside the debut of the very concept, fans are also anxiously awaiting who Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios cast to play the most iconic mutants. X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn has some ideas for Wolverine, a character so definitively played by Hugh Jackman.
Well, he’s got older now, but I would say Tom Hardy would have…been awesome. I think Taron [Egerton] could do it in his sleep. Aaron Taylor-Johnson could do it as well. I mean, I think Aaron or Taron would be my first two choices could do it really well.
Vaughn has some interesting choices for sure. Egerton was once rumored to play Scott Summers in the latter X-Men films, a choice that would be perfect for the MCU version of Cyclops. Egerton is no stranger to comic book movies, having starred in the Kingsman franchise for a few years now. The same can be said for Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who played Quicksilver in the MCU and is onboard for a Sony Kraven spin-off film. Neither actors seem popular in Wolverine fancasts though it would be undeniably fascinating to see either actor take on the role.
