A source close to the initial studio casting talks for a possible new Wolverine stand alone film is reporting that Charlie Hunnam is a front runner to play our favorite clawed Superhero.
Charlie Hunnam’s most notable role is in the FX original series Sons of Anarchy, as biker gang leader Jax Teller. The series ended in 2014.
The rights for the X-men franchise, including it’s individual character properties are now in the hands of Disney.
With the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) Phase 3 being completed with the release of Avengers: Endgame, Marvel and Disney are now looking to create a new Phase 4 Universe with Captain Marvel and Spider-Man leading the early charge.
That leaves the door open for new character and team productions, including X-Men, Wolverine and Fantastic 4.
Would Charlie Hunnam make a good Wolverine?
I think he would make an excellent choice. We’ll keep you posted on any developments or official announcements.
