The trailer for Deadpool 3 gave fans their first look at Hugh Jackman’s return as Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, a new rumor suggests he won’t be the only actor to portray the iconic X-Men character.
Comic book fans were giddy when the trailer for Deadpool 3 (or Deadpool and Wolverine) dropped, revealing what seemed to be a comic-accurate recreation of Wolverine’s Patch persona. While many were excited to see Hugh Jackman don such an iconic costume, Hollywood insider MyTimeToShineHello has dropped a new rumor suggesting that another actor will play the Wolverine variant.
Two main actors have been rumored to be joining Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in Deadpool 3. The first is Taron Egerton, who’s been rumored to play the MCU’s Wolverine since Marvel first got the rights to the X-Men back. The second and more tangible rumor is Daniel Radcliffe, who’s supposedly already been cast in the film in an undisclosed role. Regardless of who lies behind the Patch, Deadpool and Wolverine is certain to be a love letter to fans.
