Fans Want Danny DeVito To Be The Next Wolverine, But The Role May Already Be Cast. With rumors swirling that Disney is looking to reboot the X-Men franchise, Fans are speculating who will be cast as one of the most iconic comic book characters and there are some interesting theories.

This last week the internet has been buzzing about who will play the next “Wolverine”, with many fans leaning towards the casting of Danny DeVito. Yes, the actor best know by Disney fans for his roles as Phil in Hercules and as Medici in the live-action Dumbo (2019), has been petitioned to be the new Logan/Wolverine.

The idea is so popular among fans that Digital Artist, Stuart Cooper, released his version of Danny DeVito as “The Wolverine” and it is both amazing and terrifying (insert crying/laughing emoji here) and it has gone viral online. Here is the none-cropped version of the image.

You won’t get that out of your head for the next week, or look at Danny DeVito the same way again. As great and hilarious Danny DeVito would be in the role, it seems Marvel Studios may have already cast the next Wolverine, unbeknownst to fans.

According to, a source from Marvel Studios claims Charlie Hunnam has been cast as the next Wolverine in the X-Men franchise that now belongs to the Walt Disney Company after the Disney-Fox merger.

The Sons of Anarchy Star and Marvel Studios have not confirmed the casting, but Hunnam is an excellent casting choice and will give a great performance as Logan/Wolverine.

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) heads into Phase 4 after the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home, the merger has opened many doors for the studio, and a reboot of the X-Men franchise under the guise of the Multiverse (being introduced in the new Spider-Man film) gives Disney a clean slate to introduce new characters that were previously unavailable to the studio.

Do you think either Danny DeVito or Charlie Hunnam would be better as Wolverine? Could either of them give as an iconic performance as Hugh Jackman who played the role for over a decade? Should Marvel Studios reboot the X-Men franchise at all? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section, we would love to hear what you think!
