Hugh Jackman wants to pass the Wolverine role onto Tom Hardy. Jackman has played the role for fifteen years and while he never thought about getting replaced, he thinks Hardy would be a great fit.
“I haven’t really given it a lot of thought,” Jackman tells MTV of his replacement. “I’ve been asked that question a lot, and I’m always like, ‘I don’t wanna make it too easy on the studio to replace me,’ you know? I’ve still got one more to do. I’m sure they’re already talking about it, and there’s some actor [they’ve told] ‘shh, keep it quiet but we want you next.'”
While Jackman is keeping the studios next choice on the down low, he didn’t mind sharing his personal pick to don the adamantium.
“He’s younger than me for sure,” Jackman says. “I think Tom Hardy would be a great Wolverine.”
