A new rumor has furrowed the internet. This is Henry Cavill’s possible adhesion to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, nothing more and nothing less than in the role of Wolverine in the coming Captain Marvel 2.
It is necessary to emphasize that the news remains a rumor because, according to the portal The Digital Weekly, the British actor has held talks with Marvel Studios to make his debut at the MCU as the new Logan.
After the acquisition of 20th Century Fox (now 20th Century Studios) by Disney, the restart of new stories for the X-Men is imminent. In this way and according to Cosmic Book News, Kevin Feige would have planned to introduce the mutant based on the next comic series by Captain Marvel, where the heroine interacts with Wolverine, Monica Rambeau, Spider-Woman, Jessica Jones and Ms. Marvel.
The Marvel Studios boss confirmed in the last Comic-Con 2019 that they are working on an upcoming X-Men movie (most likely for Phase 5); however, it did not extend in detail.
Additionally, several rumors pointed out that Taron Egerton ( Rocketman ) was emerging as the next owner of the adamantium claws. However, the actor confessed to feeling flattered, but baffled by the news. Another rumor claimed that Marvel Studios was interested in Hugh Jackman to regain his iconic role.
As regards Henry Cavill, a few months ago, he stated in an interview that he had not renounced the role of Superman. «The cape is in the closet. It’s still mine … I haven’t given up on the role. I still have a lot to give as Superman ». However, Warner Bros. has not announced a possible sequel to The Man of Steel.
While the rumors are denied or confirmed, Henry Cavill is starring in the hit series The Witcher, which will soon have a second season. Of Captain Marvel 2 is known to be underway, but no principal or director to command.
Would he be a worthy successor to Hugh Jackman or do they prefer still to hold the title of the last son of Krypton
