A lot of Marvel fans want Wolverine to get a major makeover.
A petition on Change.org is calling for Marvel to cast Danny DeVito as the new version of Wolverine, following Hugh Jackman’s departure from the role in 2017’s “Logan”.
“The only man able to take the throne after Hugh Jackman,” the petition reads. “We believe that if Wolverine is to make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that the only man able to pull it off is Danny DeVito.”
Few actors are as inseparable from the superheroes they portray as Jackman and Wolverine. Jackman played the gritty mutant for 17 years, dating back to the original “X-Men” film in 2000.
The petition for DeVito to take over the role has been signed by nearly 55,000 people to date. The “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” star recently played a significant role in Disney’s live-action adaptation of “Dumbo”.
