Hugh Jackman has expressed his intention to step down as Wolverine, and it’s never too early to find someone to have adamantium fused onto their bones — in CGI, of course — for future films.
Conan “leaked” a few audition tapes for actors interested in replacing Jackman in the role. It appears the producers are casting as wide a net as possible, not limiting themselves to Jackman’s look for the new Logan.
Whether it’s Thomas Middleditch’s polite Wolverine, Patton Oswalt’s take with a penchant for jazz claws, or Kristen Schaal showing up for a Ghostbusters audition, it looks like we may get a very different Wolverine in the years to come. But it probably won’t be Michael Sheen’s James Bond copycat take on the character.
