Henry Cavill as Wolverine Looks Like a Horror Movie Villain
Superman actor Henry Cavill becomes the mutant Marvel Wolverine in new AI art, but looks like a horror movie villain instead of a superhero.
New AI Art Imagines Superman Actor Henry Cavill As A Marvel Mutant Wolverine, but the result looks more like a horror movie villain. For decades, the X-Men have been among the most beloved Marvel characters in franchise history. Whether in the comics or on the big screen, the X-Men continue to be among Marvel’s most popular heroes and villains. As far as live action goes, 21st Century Fox brought the Mutants to life in the early 2000s, which became known as Fox’s x-men cinematic universe.
Throughout Fox’s run with the X-Men, the studio has brought several iconic characters to life. From heroes like Professor X, Jean Gray and Cyclops to complex enemies like Magneto, Mystique and many more, the x-men The cinematic universe has never lacked for Mutants. However, the mutant who spent the most time in the franchise was Logan, aka Wolverine, with Hugh Jackman portraying the complicated but beloved x-men hero. Not only has Jackman appeared in six x-men movies, but the Australian star also had his own trilogy, which ended with Logan in 2017. Now that Disney has acquired 21st Century Fox, the X-Men will finally get their due in the MCU, as Marvel President Kevin Feige announces that the Mutants will be introduced. Since Jackman’s time as Wolverine is over, it’s only a matter of time before a new actor is cast to bring Logan to life in the MCU.
As Wolverine fan-casting rages online, new art made with Slab generated what Cavill would look like as Wolverine, but with a twist. Rather than showing what he would look like as a regular Logan, the art made the British actor appear as a version of the character inspired by the horror movie. AI art distorts Cavill’s face into a spooky, ghostly appearance. Check it out below:
While this AI art may be an unusual take on Cavill’s Wolverine, it’s by no means the first time the actor has been imagined in the Mutant role. Cavill has been committed to the superhero genre since 2013 when he brought Superman back to the big screen in Zack Snyder’s Steel man. The film was the start of Warner Bros.’ DCEU, with Cavill playing the role of DC’s iconic hero in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. While Cavill has expressed interest in returning to the DCEU as Superman, Warner Bros. has so far not indicated where the studio is going with the character cinematically. If Warner Bros. doesn’t bring Cavill’s Man of Steel back in the next few years, it’s possible the actor will be picked up by Marvel as the MCU’s Wolverine, with many fans already citing him as a suitable replacement for Jackman.
Whether or not Cavill is tapped as Wolverine, Logan is a huge role for Marvel to play when the MCU explores the X-Men. While some of Jackman x-men films received mixed reviews, her performance was always highly praised. With Jackman being synonymous with Wolverine to many, recasting the role is a tall order given the reputation the next actor is expected to live up to. However, while it would probably never happen, this bizarre new AI art of Cavill as horror inspiration Wolverine would definitely be an interesting way for Marvel Studios to take the character in a new direction.
