Tom Hardy disguises himself as new Wolverine in stunning new poster
Marvel fans are very excited about Wolverine’s arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and this stunning image of Tom Hardy in the role has heightened that excitement.
The X-Men are coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We don’t know when and we don’t know how. But we know it will happen and it will likely happen in the foreseeable future.
If two recent rumors are correct, we could see the X-Men and Wolverine appear in two completely different properties. Of course, rumors should be taken with a pinch of salt, but they are very exciting nonetheless.
The Disney / Fox merger and subsequent confirmation of that long-awaited MCU Fantastic Four film confirms that Marvel is ready to move forward into the next phase of their shared universe with some long-awaited additions – and we’re not just talking about Phase Four.
As to who will play the mutant Wolverine, that’s a question Marvel Studios has yet to answer. Obviously, it will be difficult to find someone who can live up to the brilliant Hugh Jackman (who has portrayed the character throughout Fox’s two-decade-long X-Men franchise). But an actor more than capable of getting started would undoubtedly be the incomparable Tom Hardy.
What Tom Hardy might look like as Wolverine in the MCU
Digital artist JPH Photoshop took to Instagram to share an outstanding piece of art featuring Tom Hardy as Wolverine / Logan. The stunning image shows the actor wearing a comically-accurate yellow and black outfit that also showcases the character’s signature mask – something the Fox version of the character didn’t have.
It goes without saying that a look like this would make comic book fans very happy if they saw him in the MCU.
Does Tom Hardy play Wolverine in the MCU?
There is no confirmation as to who is playing Wolverine. Tom Hardy has been at the top of many fan castings over the years, but his role as another Marvel character in another franchise may make Wolverine’s role unlikely. Another thing that can make him unlikely is the potential possibility that Hugh Jackman will be brought back, as recent evidence suggests he could return as Wolverine in the MCU.
Hardy is no stranger to comics and superhero movies. After all, he portrayed the intimidating villain of Batman Bane in The dark knight rises opposite Christian Bale and he also plays the main character in Sony’s Marvel franchise Venom, recently appearing in the much-discussed sequel Venom: let there be carnage.
A phenomenal performer, Hardy is more than capable of bringing larger-than-life characters to the screen and if he appeared in the MCU as Wolverine, he would undoubtedly do it again.
