Yes, as you read it. Henry Cavill could play Wolverine and leave behind his Superman role in the DC Universe. But how? Where? We tell you.
The Wolverine character has been played by Hugh Jackman for a total of 17 years, achieving great productions such as ‘Logan’ and even the occasional nomination for the Oscars among them. But since he decided to leave this stage of his life behind, many actors have been named to replace him: Taron Egerton, Daniel Radcliffe, Keanu Reeves, or Dacre Montgomery, among others.
However, the last nobody expected it: Henry Cavill. The rumors have started with the sequel to ‘Captain Marvel 2,’ and if you are a fan of the comics, you will know that Wolverine and Captain Marvel form a team. And if you add to this the incorporation of the characters to FOX … In short, it could be the new companion of Brie Larson.
To date, no one has spoken about it, and the only thing we know about the film is that ‘ Captain Marvel 2 ‘ would be set in the present, unlike the previous one that was in the 90s.
Henry Cavill is known for his portrayal of Superman in the extended DC universe. He first took on the role of Clark Kent / Kal-El in Man of Steel in 2013. He then resumed the character in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016. The following year, he donned the red cape for the third time in the Justice League against Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot.
While keeping in mind that these are just speculations, if Cavill were invited to join the MCU as Wolverine, it would be interesting to see what he would decide. He is very attached to his DC character, enough for him to name his beloved dog Kal after him.
However, if Cavill takes on the role of Wolverine, he won’t be the first actor to move from one comic book universe to another. Ben Affleck played Daredevil before becoming Batman, and Halle Berry portrayed Storm in X-Men before becoming Catwoman.
