With 'Logan' on the horizon, all of us have started to wonder who will replace the irreplaceable Hugh Jackman. After almost 17 years of playing the world's favorite X-Man, Jackman is ready to call it quits. Many of us are still clinging to the hope that Ryan Reynolds will convince Jackman to take one last ride after his last ride and join Deadpool on screen for one fantastic buddy flick. But if this doesn't happen and we are forced to move on with our lives.. What comes next?
There are some fantastic stories yet to be brought to life about Wolverine. The first and obvious would be an adventure involving Deadpool. After the success of 'Deadpool' in theaters, bringing these two "R rated" heroes together would only make for one hell of a fantastic ride. That could only give us one of the most gore filled action packed comedies of all time.
Maybe by some crazy miracle, we could finally get a live action Wolverine vs Hulk movie. Seeing as Marvel has kinda placed the Hulk in some crazy non solo movie limbo. Someday, it may just be possible we get to see the Hulk jump ship into a Wolverine movie or vice versa.
Of course 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' brought us into the battle and conflict between these two brothers. I have always been a fan of these two since the 90's X-Men cartoon, where they would have epic battles between each other. I think a film centered solely around these two in more depth from their beginnings, to their journey together would be an amazing film. X-Men: Origins did a good job, but told most of their journey via flashback. A brother film, ending in a showdown between two of the toughest mutants on the planet would be awesome.
There are so many villains and options for the almost un-killable mutant. What will be next for Wolverine? Omega Red maybe the sentinels. Hugh Jackman has been quoted saying, he thinks Tom Hardy would be great for the job. What do you think? Or should X-23 take over the Wolverine franchise?
Who are some of your picks to be the next Logan? And where would you like to see his story lead next?
