Marvel Fans are Torn Over Rumor that Henry Cavill Will Play Wolverine in ‘Captain Marvel 2‘. Rumors have been swirling that Superman himself, Henry Cavill, will be hanging up his cape and taking up the claws of X-Men’s Wolverine. Though there is no merit or stock to these rumors, the idea has fans buzzing online.
We do know a character from X-Men is set to appear initially as a villain in the highly anticipated sequel to Captain Marvel, but Marvel has yet to announce which character is expected to appear within the film. So why is Wolverine the rumored appearance?
There are a few moments throughout Marvel Comics where Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel) and Logan (Wolverine) team up for some epic crime fighting, but with the minimal interaction within the comics it makes sense for Marvel Studios to look at this as an opportunity to bring the X-Men into the Marvel Cinematic Universe without causing major upset by hard core fans of the comics by ruining any cherished story lines.
Marvel has had some major success exploring lesser known origins and storylines (Hello, Guardians of the Galaxy) so it is completely possible that they are hoping this is a recipe for success in Phase 5 of the MCU and will allow for an organic merger.

Do you think Henry Cavill would make a good Logan/Wolverine, or should he continue to focus on the other successful work he is doing such as Netflix’s The Witcher? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
