Marvel Writer Reveals That Taron Egerton Will Be The New Wolverine

Seems like this British Writer will need to get his adamentium claws out pretty soon as it has been revealed that he is going to be the next Wolverine.

It has been revealed that Taron Egerton has been tipped to replace Hugh Jackman as the next Wolverine by a high-profile writer from the Marvel Studios. Jackman has said goodbye to the Marvel character with 2017’s Logan, but he appeared as Wolverine in Deadpool 2 last year, where he has played the superhero since 2000’s X-Men. Renowned comics writer Mark Millar has previously worked for both Marvel and DC and he himself has said that Egerton will be the next Wolverine. 


Previously, Millar has written the script for 'KickAss' and 'The Kingsman' comics, and recently he was tweeted by a fan who reminded the writer he had correctly predicted the future twice in one of his comics. In response, Millar said, "Always remember I'm never wrong. PS Taron Egerton will be the next Wolverine."


And, as far as authorities go on the whole superhero genre, they don't come much bigger than Millar, as he has written 'The Ultimates', that has partly inspired the Marvel's original Avengers movie. Along with this, he has also written 'Ultimate Fantastic Four'; and 'Wolverine: Old Man Logan', which was the inspiration for Fox's Logan movie.


Along with this, Egerton and Millar have previously worked together as the actor took up the role of Gary 'Eggsy' Unwin in Kingsman: The Secret Service and its sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Both the movies were based on the comics written by Millar and he also served as the executive producer in the movies. 


The news about Egerton becoming the next Wolverine had been out there for quite a while now. And it was so strong that the actor himself addressed them, but it seems as though the modest star isn't so sure. In an interview with Heart Breakfast, Egerton said, "That one, I think, is just a rumor. 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."


The actor is not going to appear for the third instalment of the Kingsman movie, which is titled as 'The King's Man'. But director Matthew Vaughan has already confirmed a fourth movie, which was confused as Kingsman 3 and it forms as a part of the trilogy along with 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' and 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle'.
