Taron Egerton is ready for MCU’s next Wolverine. Taron met recently met Marvel Studios executives, including Kevin Feige, about a possible role in the MCU. He also talks about the possibility of succeeding Hugh Jackman as the next Wolverine.
Speaking to New York Times, Taron told he hopes after Hugh Jackman’s exit he will be the next Wolverine. he told “I don’t think it would be wrong to say that,” he said, laughing. “I’d be excited but I’d be apprehensive as well because Hugh is so associated with the role that I’d wonder if it’d be very difficult for someone else to do it.”
Taron Egerton is best known for his role as Gary “Eggsy” Unwin in the film Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014) and its sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017). he also starred in Testament of Youth (2014), the titular ski-jumper in the sports film Eddie the Eagle (2016), and singer Elton John in the musical Rocketman (2019),
“I ignored my instincts on those two jobs because I was offered quite a lot of money to do them,” Taron said. “And that’s just fatal. You can’t pick roles that way.”
“But I feel like I should be kinder to myself,” he continued. “I was a 25-year-old kid who was raised by a single mother with very little money. I wanted to make money, not just for me, but for people who are important to me. And as much as I was not pleased with how those two movies turned out, I can see very clearly, in retrospect, why I did them.”
