WOLVERINE: Zac Efron Responds To MCU Casting Rumors And Potentially Replacing Hugh Jackman

There have been rumblings about Zac Efron joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe for years now, with the actor often linked to Wolverine. Now, he's responded to the possibility of replacing Hugh Jackman...

For years now, Zac Efron's name has been linked to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Back when Marvel Studios was looking to cast Moon Knight's lead, we even heard that they were searching for a "Jewish Zac Efron-type." 

During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show, Efron was asked about that and the persistent rumours he's being eyed to take over the role of Wolverine from Hugh Jackman (who we recently learned will reprise his most iconic role in Deadpool 3).

"Really? Wow, they could just call me," he said in response to learning Marvel Studios had been on the hunt for a "type" like him. As for those Wolverine claims, he added, "I think Hugh's still doing that pretty well. I got to give it to him."

When Fallon pointed out that Efron could ask for Jackman's blessing after they shared the screen in The Greatest Showman, he responded, "Yeah, I guess I had my foot in the door on that one. I should go talk to him." Needless to say, we don't think this one will pan out!

While there probably is a comic book role out there for Efron, fan enthusiasm to see him suit-up has died off a little in recent years and he no longer seems like a great fit for Wolverine. While Marvel Studios is expected to recast the role at some point, we don't see it happening for a while considering the next Deadpool movie will put the spotlight back on Jackman's Variant.

Taron Egerton, an actor who has also worked with Jackman, remains a firm favourite to play Logan down the line, though we don't know whether that will pan out either. A big part of that, of course, is the fact that we still don't know what Marvel Studios has lined up for the X-Men!

Would you like to see Efron play the MCU's Wolverine? Let us know your thoughts below.
