A few weeks ago sites on were running really stupid stories based on an erroneous listing on Google that claimed Hugh Jackman would appear in Avengers: Endgame. Most people knew this was dumb to even consider, since most people with their heads on correctly knew that Marvel Studios would cast their own Wolverine in the MCU. Well now that news is confirmed.
Slashfilm went to the TCA’s this week and asked X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner about Kevin Feige recasting Wolverine, and she confirmed he would find a new Logan:
“Yes,” she said. “I don’t know what Kevin’s thinking honestly. I don’t even think Kevin knows. I think Kevin’s still dealing with this wealth of characters and trying to make sense of them.”
The only character from the Fox Marvel era who is likely safe to not be recast in the MCU is Deadpool. All the other X-Men will be played by new people when they’re eventually introduced in the MCU. But with all of the X-Men, we’re likely to see Logan in the MCU first and we’re likely to actually get a good version of his origin this time…
