Re: In Place of Hugh Jackman?
There will always be someone else out there who can play the role, even if we haven't heard of them yet. Different people have been playing Hamlet for four hundred years, and as much as I like Wolverine, he is no Hamlet.
When the time does come, I'd like to see a complete overhaul of the character. Make him more like the snide muscle of the group, rather than a leadership figure.
But to be honest, as long as Fox holds the rights to the X-Men, I don't see them recasting Wolverine until Jackman decides he's done with the character. I wouldn't be surprised to see a Days of Future Past movie with a fiftyish Jackman around 2020.
