Top 5: Actors Who Could Replace Jackman As Wolverine

Can you smell the controversy? Don’t worry – as I said in our review of The Wolverine – I agree that Jackman is pretty much irreplaceable in his role as Marvel’s slicey superhero but… what if? Anything can happen and in the event of great tragedy (or something similar), who could step up to the plate and assume the adamantium skeleton of The Wolverine? Because there is no way that Hollywood is willing to give up on Logan, no matter what may happen. So, here are five guys that I feel could – not should – replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine... (Culture, The Wolverine)

What a rubbish list.
-Superman-  +   802d ago
Daniel Craig - Really? He is too old, and his hair is too thin. He is great Bond, but no way for Wolverine. Wolverine needs Wolverine hair, and Jackman has that, Craig does not have that. Also, Craig looks way too old.

Gerard Butler - Again, too old.

Russell Crowe - even older

Henry Cavill - No way... You cant have 2 main superhero rolls. He is already Superman, he cant be Wolverine.

So, i think Sam Worthington could be best choice. I mean Wolverine must be angry, and Sam can do that. Also, Sam is younger, so he can also play at least 15 years or so.

Sam Worthington also can't act for shit, and seems to have trouble hiding his Australian accent in most films.
Baka-akaB  +   802d ago
Out of the list , the better choice for age reasons . But hum no i can't see it .

Otherwise yeah i agree . Isnt the whole point of recasting someone else to get someone younger to squeeze at least more trilogies ? If not what's the point ? Just keep Hugh Jackman

Basically Begging Hollywood to make him a superhero

FamilyGuy  +   802d ago
He's way too tall to play Wolverine but yeah, he'd work as... something.
Baka-akaB  +   802d ago
Meh he can't even look that menacing as a werewolf , despite his impressive build . I just find him cheesy , because of his acting

he could be
spray some dirt on him and there you go

I can't particularly imagine any of those capable of envisioning Logan's scarred personality. Reading this list just makes me appreciate Jackman's performances even more...
darklordzor  +   803d ago
Seeing as how some of the people on this list are the same age or older...it seems kind of ridiculous.
kevinodonnell91  +   803d ago
It's not based upon Jackman's retirement from the role. Just current actors who could step in for any reason. Thanks for reading though.
DarkBlood  +   803d ago
while i dont agree much with the list in its entirely however i find the last bit in the henry cavill paragraph funny lol

personally i think it needs to be someone younger after all this is a franchise character like james bond for popularity reasons

they should give the role to an actual canadian maybe a starting out actor chance to shine. as a person trying to be an actor someday i hope i can audition for the role lol
Garethvk  +   803d ago
There is always Dougray Scot, He was the original choice after all.
kevinodonnell91  +   803d ago
Was he!? I didn't know that!
Father Murder X  +   802d ago
Yep. he was the original choice and actually was signed to play Wolverine. Then the mission impossible movie he was shooting ran long and FOX replaced him with Hugh Jackman. The rest they say is history!!!!!

NOW Jackman is on of the biggest stars in the world and I can't name two movies dougray scott played in!!!

Exactly he is on the Netflix Series Hemlock Grove now.
shodan74  +   802d ago
Gerard Butler would be a good choice. But if we could get a time machine together to secure a young Clint Eastwood - that'd be the ultimate piece of casting.
segamon  +   802d ago
young clint is perfect for both, wolverine and solid snake.
Hayabusa 117  +   802d ago
I used to think Clint Eastwood was the ONLY guy that could've played Wolverine, until I saw Jackman of course.

I actually think Henry Cavill could work, but mostly based on the fact that he has a beard in that picture and looks angry.

Russel Crowe and Garard Butler: maybe if they were young, which they aren't.

Sam Worthington and Daniel Craig: never, not in a million years.

Ultimately, they're all good actors but I can't imagine any of them topping Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
iliimaster  +   802d ago
what about keanu reeves or jayden smith lol
wannabe gamer  +   802d ago
bad joke
Anthotis  +   802d ago
Sam Worthington isn't a bad choice, but the other suggestions are embarrassing and you should be ashamed.

I'll vote this site down, and i hope everyone else does the same.
360ICE  +   802d ago
Wow, there
Not my favorite list either. And I'm not even a fan of lists in general, but that is a bit of an overreaction. You are one angry person.
lastofgen  +   802d ago
Hugh Jackman is the Wolverine. I don't think I could stand to see anybody else play the role.
wannabe gamer  +   802d ago
Z501  +   802d ago
to this day i still think Hugh Jackman is/was to tall for wolvie anyway.
wannabe gamer  +   802d ago
there arent many good actors that are the same height as wolverince from the comics. i mean maybe if Joe Rogan was a good actor or if joe pesci was not old and round as mini blimp and more of an action movie guy it might work
listenkids  +   802d ago
Hugh Jackman will play Wolverine even into Old Man Logan days, by then any reboot/replace will be a rising star we don't know yet.
Crazay  +   802d ago
I kinda always thought that Jack Nicholson would have made an awesome older wolverine just based on how he looked in the movie WOlf

lol no get that old as good as it gets fatty out of here lol. this role is for the beef cake muscle guys.

go watch 300 and make your selection lol
RedHawkX  +   802d ago
gerard butler is the best choice of that list
TacoBurrito  +   802d ago
Most of these dudes are older or similar age wise.
Hergula  +   802d ago
The problem with this list is that, nothing seems to be taken into consideration.
FlunkinMonkey  +   802d ago
A young Jack Nicholson would have been cool. ha

Benicio del toro might work? But he's kind of old.
