AVENGERS: ENDGAME Director Joe Russo Would Love To See CAPTAIN AMERICA Actor Chris Evans Play... Wolverine!?

During a new interview, Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo was asked for his ideal pick to play Wolverine in The MCU, and he went an actor who's been synonymous with Captain America for over a decade!

Chris Evans (seemingly) put his Captain America days behind him in Avengers: Endgame when Steve Rogers passed his shield and mantle to Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), and although rumors of his imminent return persist, it doesn't sound like the Lightyear actor really has much interest in revisiting the role anytime soon.

Disappointing for some, maybe, but at least this frees him up to play Wolverine! Wait... what?

While speaking to ComicBook.com, Endgame co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo were asked who they'd cast Evans as in a (theoretical) multiverse MCU movie, and Joe gave Logan as his surprising answer.

“Evans has incredible range and great physicality, and he's real good at body control,” said the filmmaker. “He's an incredible actor. I don't mean this in a bad way, but he's nothing like Captain America. Steve Rogers is very controlled and quiet, understated. Chris is energetic and funny and charismatic, and he brings a lot of energy to set. I'd love to see him do something like Wolverine.”

This is a complete "What If?" scenario, of course, but now that it's out there, we could actually see Evans don the claws and mutton-chops of the iconic mutant berserker! It's probably never going to happen, but remember, Evans did play The Human Torch prior to landing the part of Captain America!

Even so, the chances of Evans playing Wolvie in The MCU outside of a brief Multiverse cameo of some sort are between slim and none. Marvel Studios will cast a new take on the character at some point, but we've had no official updates on Kevin Feige's plans for The X-Men since the Fox acquisition went through.

Do you think Chris Evans would make a good Wolverine? If not, who would you pick for the role? Drop us a comment down below.
