It is inevitable that Wolverine will eventually return to our screens, the only real questions are when it will happen, and who will grow the mutton chops and attach the adamantium claws.

Countless rumors have touted Hugh Jackman for a fan-pleasing cameo in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnessbut even if that doesn’t come to fruition, the X-Men are being rebooted as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe anyway.

While you can make a very strong argument that the next iteration of mutants doesn’t need Wolverine at all to succeed given the popularity of the MCU, coupled with the daunting prospect of stepping into the iconic shoes of Jackman, Scott Eastwood would be more than happy to take the opportunity if it presented itself to him.

During an interview with pop-culturethe second-generation star was asked if we’d ever see him with Logan, offering a coy, “You never know. You never know in Hollywood” in response. Still, when the idea of ​​starting a fan petition was asked, the 35-year-old replied saying “I think you should”, before adding that it was up to the fans to “throw it out”.

That obviously doesn’t mean he’ll get his wish, but it’ll be interesting to see if the idea of ​​having Eastwood as the next Wolverine gains any real traction among MCU proponents as a x-men restart the edges closer.
