Taron Egerton Finally Addressed His Wolverine Casting Rumors

Well, what's it going to be? Is he going to be our next Wolverine?

Or is it going to be someone else? Or, dare I say it: do we not need anyone else at all?

Ooh, the suspense is killing me, I need to know!

So there are a lot of pros and cons to X-Men joining the MCU.

Pro: We're going to get to see all our favorite X-Men team up with (or possibly fight) The Avengers.

Imagine it: Wolverine and Storm taking on Spider-Man and Scarlett Witch... it's going to be a blast!

Con: A lot of the cast will probably have to be recast.

This sucks because we'll be losing the iconic Hugh Jackman as Wolverine (we already kind of lost him in Logan, but I never lost hope).

However, on the other hand, this means Taron Egerton can play him.

There have been rumors circulating that Taron Egerton is going to play Wolverine next for some time now.

And fans are, understandably, very excited about this prospect. Taron is an incredibly talented actor and he just looks like Wolverine too.

So, Taron, what's it going to be? Are you gonna be Captain Canada or what?

Uh, well... In a word... No.

He said in an interview with Yahoo Movies:

"It's unfounded. The only morsel of truth to it is that I'm a huge fan of the films, like 99.9 percent of the rest of the world. That's kind of it, really. … I don't quite know where it comes from. I'm flattered but baffled by it... There's other characters that I think I'd be more suited to."
