See ‘Venom’ Star Tom Hardy Replace Hugh Jackman As Wolverine In New Pic

Venom star Tom Hardy becomes Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine replacement in a new concept design for the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.

With Disney now owning the rights to the X-Men, we can finally see Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unfortunately, Hugh Jackman officially retired from the role all the way back in 2017 with Logan, which some have dubbed the character’s swan song. The show must go on, which means the MCU has to now find another star to play Wolverine. A number of names have been thrown around over the last few years, but one of the best candidates for the role is Venom star Tom Hardy.

Tom Hardy made his comic book film debut in 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises as Bane before he became Sony’s Venom in 2018. It turns out that Hardy was originally considered for the role of Wolverine in 2011 for Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class. Upon hearing this news, Instagram user “Mizuri” drew up a design that shows off what Hardy could look like as Wolverine.

While it’s highly unlikely that Tom Hardy would star as Wolverine considering Venom has been folded into the MCU, it’s still a fantastic hypothetical design. Besides, Hardy would have made a great Wolverine if things had worked out differently. The 44-year-old star would have certainly honored Hugh Jackman’s legacy as the character whilst also putting his own spin on the classic X-Men hero.

Tom Hardy was last seen in Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Here’s the official synopsis for the movie:

“After finding a host body in investigative reporter Eddie Brock, the alien symbiote must face a new enemy, Carnage, the alter ego of serial killer Cletus Kasady.”

Directed by Andy Serkis from a script written by Kelly Marcel, the film stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Naomie Harris, Reid Scott, Stephen Graham, and Woody Harrelson.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage will be available digitally on November 23rd and on 4K Ultra USH, Blu-Ray, and DVD on December 14th. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the franchise and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
