    Taron seems perfect


    But let me also toss in Jamie Bell.

    I’m not the best when it comes to casting but I’ve really liked the idea of Taron Egerton playing Wolverine for many years.

    Joe Taslim is my top choice for Wolverine.

    I kind of feel we should just ignore Inhumans (despite the Black Bolt cameo in MOM), and at least consider Iwan Rheon.

    And I also stick by my previous Martin Sensmeier suggestion. I haven't seen him in many roles, but I like what I've seen.

    My pitch for a Wolverine movie

    I l have this fantasy of a Wolverine Weapon x origin done right, but it's a monster movie and feral Logan (our monster) is loose in the compound. Through the first half of movie the we follow a small team of guards and mutants trying to track him down and retrieve him. We don't see much of him at first as he's shrouded in shadows and blood, he wears the iconic visor and equipment.

    As the movie goes on and this response team is taken out one by one with only a few survivors, the plot then changes perspective and we now follow logan as he hunts down the guy who did this to him dr Cornelius. As he gets closer to his target hes met by the couple survivors of his rampage, Sabertooth and Northstar, he defeats them both (sabertooth seemingly killed, Northstar escapes) and proceeds to track down and kill Dr. Cornelius.

    The movie would finish with Logan escaping the facility in Canadian snow and wilds. And a post credit scene can be a time skip of him in a bar or something in modern day, a huge figure walks in the bar, with a Savage grin on his face as he says I finally found you... Runt. Camera switches back to Wolverine at the bar *snikt*

    I get the idea around the younger range suggestions...
    but, here are some of my old fan-cast(s) for an (now) older range of actors
    (who could still be considered)

    Eoin Macken (39)

    I just had an epiphany while watching the new season of Cobra Kai... hear me out...

    Barrett Carnahan (young John Kreese in that series) may actually make a decent Wolverine. He looks young, but by the time they start filming an X-Men movie, he'd be about the same age Hugh Jackman was when he started with the character. I have no idea how he would look with scruffy mutton chops, but I like his acting.

    tho, I still think that fan-art (which very well done btw, no knock at the artist) is a bit disproportionate/ over exaggerated body type to make him more look the part
    (an tho, I still don't know how to feel about him in the role)

    he did recently get a role in a wrestler movie
    which he'll probably be bulking up quit a bit for that role, so, could get closer to that superhero body type, IRL soon

    Get Jeremy Allen White to lead and Genndy Tartakovsky (Primal) to write the script.

    Yeah he was good, could be worth a shot. Can certainly get into Wolverine shape.

    I hope they go a very different direction for Wolverine. I want him to be less 'Ol Huckleberry, and more, "Kratos"//-- "Shadow the Hedgehog", if you will.

    A younger, more reckless, emotionally immature Wolverine than we've seen. When we meet Logan, I'd love him to be a complete nihilist, someone who doesn't believe in anything, or stand for anything, because the world has given him every reason not to...

    ..That is, until he meets the X-Men, and he's actually challenged, on an ideological level, for the first time.

    Wolverine doesn't necessarily have to be young to be those things (and given his anti-aging factor he's never really that young, only in physical appearance) unless they drastically change his backstory, to have been born in a more modern setting

    he could be in that state of mind because of his memory loss, tho, too, I guess

    I want Taron Egerton he is the best option for me but he will be like 36 or 37 years old when the new X-Men movies will came out in the next 4 ot 5 years i dont know if that is old to play MCU Wolverine for many years Jackman was 30 in the first FOX X-Men movie if they dont find another younger actor by 2026 Egerton should be the best option

    This kinda sounds like a pitch for a Teenage emo Logan on Xmen Evolution before they decided against it.

    They could give us a lot more pre- Xmen Logan to stand out.

    Emo is the word I'd use :funny:

    Replace the Johnny Cash, with heavy metal/grunge. I could see Logan being born in the 1920s-1930s, and being physically a teenager during WW2 service

    I think 25-35 would be the ideal age range for the actor

    He's still in my top 3. Although I don't necessarily think his talents are proven just yet. The hard about all of this how far off the xmen seem to be from reality. I honestly believe the rumor about the fox contracts not ending till 2025. It makes too much sense considering we got Stuart back and even Evan Peters as a gag version of his character.

    For a milisecond I was like "What? Chris Evans came back as Human Torch?", but it's Evan Peters. :p

    Anyway, I don't necessarily believe the actors are attached, but the producers are. But it fits the theory, like you said, because of Stewart and Peters, and also because so far all the mutants introduced/announced were never part of FOX. And if that's the case, I wonder how it would work for characters like Rogue, Bobby or Kitty, last seen in 2014.

    But I don't want to hold on any hope. It's disappointing.

    I'm thinking they can only start production after 2025, which means filming in 2026 and releasing in 2027. If it comes out before, better. But right now that's my prediction.
