Westworld star Luke Hemsworth wants to don the claws of Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Disney acquired the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, and Deadpool from Fox in a megadeal finalized not long ago. Fans of the MCU anxiously await official word on when the newly obtained characters will fully be back home. Hemsworth epressed his interest in the role while speaking with Screen Rant. You can check out what he had to say below.
“I would love to. I grew up with them. I learned to draw through comic books, copying comic books since I was about 10 years old. Spawn was a big one for; I really loved Todd McFarlane’s Spawn. And then Batman – I would have fought Rob Pattinson for those gauntlets. And Wolverine! I’m like, ‘Come on, just pass them on, mate. Let’s give it to another Aussie.’ I’ll have to grow some chest hair, but I’m ready for Wolverine.”
Well, I don’t see how adding another Hemsworth could be bad for the MCU, right? Kevin Feige and his team are going to have to replace Hugh Jackman and cast a new actor as Wolverine sooner or later. An abundance of actors that would make a good fit may complicate the decision. Which might be why we haven’t heard any news on the matter, or the X-Men making their debut in the MCU. We do know is they will be joining their long lost Marvel family.
Let’s assume the Spider-Man 3 rumor about multiple Spider-men and 616 Peter Parker universe hoping is true. It’s possible his tinkering with time and space could allow the X-Men to enter the MCU. As well as Electro. Now these are rumors. However they are exciting rumors that I hope turn out to be true. What isn’t a rumor is the title of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The multiverse is coming to the MCU, whether or not it becomes a factor before the Doctor Strange sequel remains to be seen.
