“Rocketman” star Egerton has announced that he is in talks with Marvel for the role of Wolverine.
Taron Egerton, who played Elton John in the 2019 movie “Rocketman” and received great acclaim for his performance, announced that he was meeting with Kevin Feige and other Marvel Studio executives to take on the role of Wolverine, the X-Men character who was previously played by Hugh Jackman and identified with him.
In an interview with The New York Times, Egerton took over the role from Hugh Jackman and both the X-Men and the X-Men Avengers He described his desire to play the character central to their series: “I don’t think it would be wrong to say that. I would be excited but also worried because Hugh is so connected to the role that I wonder if it would be too difficult for anyone else to do it. But I hope if it does, they’ll give me a chance. ”
Egerton, who made his big break with Matthew Vaughn’s “Kingsman: The Secret Service” in 2014, co-starred with Hugh Jackman in “Eddie the Eagle” in 2016. Most recently, the British actor, who took part in the theater play “Cock” in London’s West End, is currently preparing to appear before the audience with the Apple TV + series “Black Bird”, which will meet with the audience on July 8.
