Taron Egerton spoke about those “Wolverine” rumours during an appearance at Comic-Con.
In an interview with MTV, Egerton insisted he’d need to grow some more facial fuzz to take over from Hugh Jackman to play the part.
Egerton said, “I think you need better beard game for Wolverine than I have. Look, there’s no grounding for the rumour.
“I know that that’s probably in the pipeline at some point for Marvel but I would imagine it’s a little way off.”
The “Rocketman” star continued, “If I was asked, it would be incredible. I have to confess, I think sometimes there are better candidates.
“Or actually, you know, who knows, because in five years maybe I’d be grizzly enough.”
Jackman, who starred alongside Egerton in the “Eddie the Eagle” movie, played Wolverine for 19 years.
