Taron Egerton fears playing the new ‘Wolverine’
Although there is still a need for confirmation, Taron Egerton shared that he was also dreading playing as the new “Wolverine”. Hugh Jackman played the character “Wolverine” for 17 years and he is well known for his contribution to making this character well adorned and loved.
Egerton said “I don’t think it would be wrong to say that. I would be excited but also apprehensive, because Hugh is so associated with the role that I would wonder if it would be very difficult for someone else to do it…. But I hope if [the role of Wolverine] happens, they’ll give me a chance,” according to an article published in The Direct.
A lot of pressure is on Taron Egerton after confirming his meeting with Marvel executives and its president. While no details have been released about what they discussed, it could be a sign that Taron Egerton will be working in the MCU.
